Bill Simmons: “ESPN is In the Bag for the NFL”

“The “B.S. Report,” is no longer — replaced by the all new “The Bill Simmons Podcast.”

And since Simmons no longer works for ESPN, he can now harshly criticize NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as much as he pleases at his new home at HBO.”


“Charlie Pierce on Grantland was the only person who really went after them. On ESPN, they didn’t really do anything until that giant Don Van Natta-Seth Wickersham-Outside the Lines investigation. It was just hard to come away from that and not think that ESPN was in the bag for the NFL, because they were.”
