You'd think by now that someone as popular as Bill Simmons would just cut his losses, but apparently the guy is just a glutton for punishment. Simmons' unauthorized blog is back and this time its weekly NFL picks column that randomly got the nix from the "Leader"....
Quick update: I received a slew of e-mails yesterday wondering what happened to my Friday NFL column and blaming me for being lazy and all the usual crap. Please know that I handed in that column as scheduled - on Thursday night, on time, like I always do -- and on Friday afternoon, ESPN.com decided not to run the column. These are the facts.Well then. That's short and to the point, huh? I thought the two sides had worked out their differences, but it appears we're just getting started with this thing. Plus it can't be sitting well with Simmons that Rick Reilly's last articles was picking a fantasy Football team with Obama. That should have been you, Bill!!!
Anyway, here were my Week 9 picks for posterity's sake....
....Last week: 9-3-2
We are on the record.
