Bill Simmons Takes A Shot At Emmitt Smith During His Marathon Chat (Updated: ESPN Takes It Down)

Wednesday, November 28, 2007


If you weren't aware Bill Simmons is "Chatting for Charity" today in what will end up being a 6-hour event to raise money for the Jimmy V Foundation. Right in the beginning of the chat came this exchange.....

Scott (Chicago, IL): You should have started the chat at 9:00 am, because you would have, easily, broken the record, seeing how everyone who is in this chat is at work, and would be on it til 5:00 with you. What are you going to do at 5:00 when everyone leaves work? I love you, but I don't love you enough to stay late at work just to chat about inane things going on in the world!

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (12:18 PM ET ) We thought about this, but 9:00 am equals 6:00am West Coast time, and I am incoherent when it's that early. I would have been giving answers like Emmitt Smith.

Zing! Don't know how long until they take it down so I took that screen shot for you. It is still up after an hour and a half of chatting, so maybe ESPN feels the same way we all do about Emmitt. I'm blowed away that they do.

Update: And there you have it....after two hours it has been changed!

Update #2- Here we go again!

Emmitt Smith: Would you agree that the NFC West is one of the worst conferences in the NFC? You're gonna smash the chat record. Don't quit, don't even quit.

SportsNation Bill Simmons: (1:20 PM ET ) I think the NFC West is going through a rice of passage right now, so you can't make it an escape goat.


That one might be inside enough that ESPN won't change it.

Simmons complaining his wife didn't get a free pass to Disneyland? C'mon, he makes $1.5M a year (from a good source, oft-referenced buddy of his). Stop whining, just for once, you pathetic homer.

"I"m blowed away..." Was that an honest mistake or are you trying to sound like Emmitt on purpose?

someone mustave talked to Emmitt about "blowed away" because he corrected himself when he said it again on Monday night.

I wonder how Simmons feels about his chat being edited for content? I guess free speach doesn't apply when you work for tWWL.

CBS does this publish first, edit later garbage also, mostly with a guy who is an equal assclown, though for different reasons, denis [name redacted*]

At this point I am having trouble discerning between ESPN and Chinese State Media when it comes to censoring things.

See, Beel Simmonds can have all the free peach he have, because he can have them, as long as he run the ball first, set up the run with runnin the ball.

Baseball has been berry berry good to me Hane.

I don't remember when, and I didn't get a screen grab, but during the chat someone asked for Simmons' reaction to Jimmy Kimmel vs. Theisman. He said he couldn't comment on it for fear of it being removed, and then added "...like right now." Next time I refreshed, it was gone.

Was he sitting in a chair like Malcolm Mcdowell in A Clockwork Orange?

I would rather remove all the skin from my body with a carrot peeler than ever work at that douchebag company.

Good Lord.

I'm sick of Simmons and his tired schtick too, but at $1.5M a year, I'd work for ANYONE. Yes, he makes that much.

There was also a reference to Leo DiCaprio playing a "Masshole" in The Departed that was later changed to "Massachusetts street tough".
