    ESPN suspends @BillSimmons from Twitter after his First Take criticism.

    A complete overreaction by the WWL as usual... God forbid anyone disagree with anything that goes on there...

    Just suspended from Twitter, not from TV or podcast. Thus, no big deal.

    That's not embracing the debate.

    Maybe it's an overreaction, but how many newspapers allow their reporters to take shots at the written word of a co-worker on Twitter? Kinda the same thing here.

    No one is bigger than their bosses, especially when those bosses are thin-skinned and know the person is speaking the truth.

    What a terrible ordeal for him!

    Gee, I sure hope he comments on it! Do you suppose he might?!?!!?!?

    Mr. Radd appears to be hinting at a conspiracy that goes to the highest levels of ESPN!

    He should have tweeted something like :Standing offer for Bayless: 10 rounds, 8-ounce gloves, no headgear and he would have been fine.
  10. Wait...ESPN still hasn't smartened up and gotten rid of that hideous show........or at least fired Skip Bayless, yet?

    Another reason why this network is watched maybe 30 minutes out of my day...hardly that...and never First Take.

    It's been years since I watched anything other than live games or 30 for 30 on the ESPN family of networks. I'll browse Classic once in a while and perhaps put on ESPNNews if there's absolutely nothing else on.

    Maybe Hoppes can copy Simmons' lines and post them as his own for a while.
