Bill Simmons declares war on ESPN after it blocked employees from his podcast

Quote:
Bill Simmons: I'm glad you mentioned that. You know why I can't have Brian Windhorst on? Because ESPN won't let anyone from ESPN come on my podcast, which is fine, but it's just laying down the ground rules for what is going to unfold over the next few years. It could have been friendly and it's not going to be friendly.

Joe House: It's already unfriendly.

BS: It's going to be more unfriendly.

JH: I'm excited to see how unfriendly it can get.

BS: Just wait until The Ringer hires a public editor for ESPN, that writes for The Ringer. That's going to get very unfriendly.

His new HBO show starts in June.

30 minutes seems a bit short. I have to say though, him boasting he can say the F word is cringe-worthy. Im not really a fan of those types of press releases.

I've been watching Simmons HBO show and I like it. Live I like him better than in print. He is a fan & that is cool. He comes from Boston, so every answer is about Boston...but he admits it. He talks about topics I like to talk about....NBA, Movie, Actors, and Game of Thrones. He produced the post-GOT show. I don't think he knows that much more about the NBA than me, but he remembers things...which I can't do. But what is better than his show...is the extras on "on demand". He gets his guest 10 to 15 minutes more and he asks them stuff he wouldn't on the show. So I save this & watch it.---Steve Yohe

I loved the show & watched all of them. Maybe they were too short & should have been an hour. I couldn't get enough but it always seemed to end just as it was getting hot.---Yohe

Not a surprise given the ratings. Bill's better served in podcasting than doing TV shows.
