    Guess you can't even state the obvious anymore.

    “Goodell, if he didn’t know what was on that tape, he’s a liar. I’m just saying it. He is lying. If you put him up on a lie detector test, that guy would fail. For all these people to pretend they didn’t know is such ... . It really is, it’s such ... . For him to go into that press conference and pretend otherwise -- I was so insulted.”


    Simmons, also the editor-in-chief of Grantland.com, then dared ESPN to reprimand him for what he said during the same podcast.

    “I really hope somebody calls me or emails me and says I’m in trouble for anything I say about Roger Goodell,” Simmons said. “Because if one person says that to me, I’m going public. You leave me alone. The commissioner’s a liar and I get to talk about that on my podcast. ... Please, call me and say I’m in trouble. I dare you.”

    Kellerman tried doing a show on fox sports way back when after espn, and it failed miserably. Think it lasted a year.

    There are a lot of outlets that Simmons could go to other than ESPN. His wildly popular Grantland was swooped up by ESPN and put on their website. He'll be fine. In fact, I say he gives ESPN a huge fuck you and trashes the shit out of them. Much like Dan Patrick has done.
