The situation in the NFL is awful. It's gotten so bad that even the Redskins want to change the commissioner's name!

I love Bill Simmons, and 3 weeks is way to long. But he still shouldn't have done that. That being said, that means 3 weeks of no Cousin Sal podcast.

That is a player thing, not an NFL thing though. They want to be associated with the NFL, just not those specific players.

Multiple media buyers tell THR that clients have requested their ads not appear during games featuring the Ravens or Minnesota Vikings, the team of suspended running back Adrian Peterson (due in a Texas court Oct. 8 on a child abuse charge for whipping his 4-year-old son). CBS, which kicked off its $275 million Thursday Night Football package Sept. 11 with strong ratings for a Ravens game, had one sponsor ask to be removed from the broadcast and another request its ads shift, likely away from a discussion of the violence issue during CBS Sports' pregame report. CBS declined to identify the sponsors.

ESPN is a bunch of f***ing hypocrites and Bill Simmons is only good for creating 30 for 30.

This is absolute crap. I listened to Monday's show with cousin sal ( its the highlight of my Monday in football season) and I thought he might catch some heat but not 3 weeks! I hate ESPN and what they have done to sports media.

All I can say is that this culture of fear, intimidation, cover ups, and just... violence surrounding football is really, really disturbing.

That is exactly what I said. I am not sure why you posted that.

Yeah, I love his weekly show with Cousin Sal during the football season. Three weeks with no picks is gonna ruin their bet.

I bet ESPN got a call from the NFL office. "General" media wouldn't care what they have to say about an editorial but ESPN (the main "sports" media) apparently does.

ESPN was quick to release a statement that it wasn't the case when people started chirping that. Is there any truth to it? Who knows? Remember they ran with the Outside the Lines story with no hesitation and have yet to back down off it.

Yeah, I'm sure ESPN would like everyone to believe them. Do I?

I wouldn't be surprised if Bill actually does quit over this. I would love to see him on TNT for NBA coverage, and maybe start his own site away from grantland/ESPN for his weekly column and analysis? I know I'm dreaming.....

Simmons would ruin TNT's NBA coverage. They are perfect as they are right now. Best crew in the sport.

Looking pretty dead on more like it.

The NFL is as corrupt as Enron.

I think that's his goal. He seems fed up with ESPN altogether. Unless he has a no compete clause in his contract that prevents him from finding other work for some period of time, because then that's kinda stupid.

I don't think Simmons wants to be fired. He won't get the exposure he desires somewhere else, nor will he make $5mil year. He just can't help himself. I usually agree with his rants about other ESPN emploees. Mike and Mike is horrible, same with First Take.
