Simmons Talks With Collinsworth, Throws Another Jab At Reilly

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Bill Simmons has been bringing the podcasts fast and furious now that his latest rift with his employer seems to have died down. He recently had Cris Collinsworth on the program, and when talking about the Cowboys the Sports Guy had this to say about the situation.



"As we've found out time and time again in sports or in any other community, if you bring in another guy and pay him more then the best guy you have, there's gonna be trouble. Guy's not gonna handle that well."- Bill Simmons

He of course was talking about T.O. and Roy Williams, right? Well, I guess that's possible, but it certainly sounded like a shot to me. Ah, the holidays are always happy over at the "Leader".

I'm not sure about that being a shot at Reilly, AA. I mean, it's not like his analogy isn't true in Dallas.

Yeah, you may be reading a little too much into this line. I took it as a comment about the Cowboys paying too much for Roy Williams and possibly upsetting TO.

I had to mute my TV when Reilly's smug face came on SC tonight. The biggest douche on tWWL, and that's saying something.

Used to not like Simmons, but I really enjoy his podcasts. Reilly, on the other hand, is a grade-A douchenozzle.

Seemed like an obvious reference to his own situation. Not sure how the other commenters didn't hear it.

I don't want to get too cranky and I know that this site is about picking apart media, but really, who gives a flying fuck about either one of these douchebags. Needs more Pammys. (sorry out drinking all night)

Bill Simmons has a voice made for writing.

I think commenting on my co-workers' salaries is perfectly appropriate.

Since Simmons' focus tends to be on teams from that part of the country stretching from Northern Rhode Island to Southeastern New Hampshire, it's no big surprise ESPN would go out and hire someone to focus on the other 47 1/2 states.
