    All these disputes. It's hard to keep up.

    What Mike and Mike did today was absolute garbage. I would say I lost respect for that show, but I never had it. http://thebiglead.com/2014/11/06/mike-golic-on-bill-simmons-lebron-comments-he-grabbed-a-headline-which-is-something-i-know-he-loves/ …

    I have to completely side with Simmons on this one. Mike and Mike took something he said completely out of context and made it into something that it never was.

    Apparently the edict at the WWL is must never criticize The Chosen One.

    ESPN's Cavaliers coverage is nauseating. Four games into an 82-game season and you'd think the Cleveland Cavaliers were the only team that played professional sports. Here's a minute of other sports' highlights, we'll dissect the Cavs for the other 59 minutes.

    I don't mind the NBA, but there ARE other sports to cover...

    Simmons is Costanza trying to get out of his contract.

    It certainly appears that way. I like Simmons, but I get the sense that he may have a hard time finding a gig as lucrative as the one he has now if he's blackballed by ESPN.

    Mike and Mike stopped talking about the Jets and Mark Sanchez long enough to get to this?

    Golic and his faux outrage takes are lame beyond belief. Mike and Mike is one trick pony vanilla show.

    Golic is a simp and he never says anything remotely enlightening, but he's a company man through and through, and I guarantee he didn't go off the reservation to call out Simmons. It's a reflection of the environment/attitude in Bristol towards Simmons.

    Golic's comments were absolute crap and Simmons has every right to be angry.

    Seems like Greenberg's fault to me, and I like them.

    John Feinstein once took Mike and Mike apart in his blog, explaining how Golic would be fed all of his faux outrage points because he wasn't too bright. Granted, that was a few years ago, but I don't think Golic has turned into Edward R. Murrow since then.

    Whether or not Simmons has every right - I think that's a bit strong - his skin is tissue-thin, and he could have easily called up Golic himself to discuss it.

    Simmons must be one hell of a human being to his friends, that he seems to engender so much support.
