Default Bill Simmons & ESPN Parting Ways?

Huh .... just caught this and I didn't have a clue about of the tension between Simmons and ESPN right now.

If you're a regular reader of, you probably noticed that Bill Simmons's NFL picks column didn't hit the web this past Friday. Well, according to the Sports Fella, ESPN elected not to publish it.

The tension between Simmons and his employer, ESPN, has been well documented and the latest bit of news will do nothing to dispel the widely held belief that the two simply don't get along anymore. For reasons that have yet to become clear, the "Leader" decided not to run Simmons's Friday picks column (normally a staple on during the NFL season), but you can still check out his picks ... on his personal blog.

As you might imagine, Simmons is less than pleased with ESPN's decision not to showcase his work, and you can practically feel his rage when reading the post.

Well I hope we don't lose the BS Report if they do. I like that much more than his writing lately actually.
