    And whatthe hell was Webby thinking with honoring Simmons at an awards dinner
  5. What a fuck-up.

    First impulse is to take a shot at Buzz Bissinger.

    Bill, if you ever write anything 1/100th as amazing and influential and lasting as "Friday Night Lights," which not only is the top selling sports book of all time but also has been made into a movie AND a critically praised television show, please let us know.

    Dumb fuck.

    And I know you're reading this. Go fucking whine about it to Sports Illustrated.

    OK, I've taken plenty of shots over the years at Simmons. He's the sports writing version of Rob Lowe's character in "St. Elmo's Fire," he just give up the frat boy lifestyle even though he's way too old to pull it off.

    That said ... If the the dude is getting screwed over by management, if they're ignoring contractual elements, then that sucks.

    Be interesting to see the Mouse's reaction to him speaking out. He really is a brand at this point, so I don't think it would be wise on their part to piss him off.

    It's disappointing it took 10 replies for someone to come up with that.

    we must be too busy searching for Fozzy or something.
