Olbermann has a hot blonde 25 year old live in girlfriend name Katy Tur. It took me about 1 min to find this out. Simmons is so incompetent, his efforts at a cheap shot have exposed the fact that Olbermann is doing better with the ladies than he is. Amazing.

The fact is the Simba is holding a losing hand with his Ali article and everyone knows it. Has a single media member defended his position? That means it's open season on him. If Simba gets into a fight with anyone over this, it just calls more attention to his stupid article. I think what pushed his buttons with Olbermann was how completely dismissive he was with Billy. It took him only one sentence to cast aside Simba's entire professional work.

Since Simmons has started to become more of a public figure he's starting to receive the attention and criticisms that he's dished out at others for years. So far, Simba is completely folding under the pressure. His twitter fights with local journalists, radio guys and commentators are a prime example. It's been easy for him to lob grenades at people from behind the ESPN wall that protects him from everything, including user comments on his articles. But out on his own, he's been exposed as a thin-skinned, insecure, whining douche bag.


Good post, n00b. Please post in this thread so we can all figure out if we're enemies with you or not.

Simba, on the other hand, is the kind of guy who will say shit behind someone's back and then backtrack when he's called to account for it. In short, Simba's a punk.


Now that's an understatement. He comes off as a Peter Pan frat boy who is scared of his own shadow. The racial and sexual anxiety that wafts through his "writings" is almost palpable. You always find these punks at ballgames, screaming abuse and insults at players from the safety of the stands, snarling like weasels after a few beers with their buddies. Simmons and his ilk are just the kind of douchebags that got thumped by Artest and Jackson during the Motown Melee. These dipshits like to prove themselves by engaging in activities that have a hint of danger attached to them: gambling, strips clubs, Vegas trips, whores, porn, etc., and they feel that they have validated themselves and proven themselves badasses by laying a three team tease or paying for 10 lap dances in a row. Stone cold pussies.


Great post, except I'm guessing he was too much of a dork to get into a frat. Unless he and his buddies were able to start up a new Tri-Lamb chapter.

Leaving aside who wrote what about whose mother, Simmons is flat-out wrong in the Tiger/Ali debate and refuses to admit it. Olbermann is right but most people won't agree with him simply because he's Olbermann.

It seems that Simmons has really damaged himself with this Ali/Tiger dustup. Which leads to another question: doesn't he have an editor at The Worldwide Leader? An editor's job is to prevent writers from making fools of themselves and their publications. Or that used to be an editor's job; apparently that is an old media conceit. Anyway, Simmons may have pulled the rug out from beneath his own feet. The guy is just too slipshod. The Book of Basketball was a "word salad" of errors, typos, and boneheaded inconsistencies; now this clownish fuckup. The boy had better pay attention to the matters at hand and spend a little less time calling his bookie. Hey, maybe that's it: Simmons has a gambling problem that's ruining his career. That'd be sweet.

Simmons is a moron. He's wrong about everything to one degree or another. Listening to him talk to Chuck Klosterman or reading the back and forth with Olbermann should remove any shadow of a doubt to anyone with half a brain.

Good burn, indeed.

One very minor note though: "Pious" actually does carry the meaning the Dork presumably meant to convey (self-righteous, sanctimonious, hypocritical), so he's acquitted of that particular offense.

I agree with the above post. Initialy Simmons said something rather quickly during a chat about Woods/Ali. Whatever...

However, that one comment started a bit of a brushfire amoung the blogs and internet about it. Instead of just brushing it off and saying he might be wrong, he then pens a 2000 word essay about why he was right. If ESPN was so embarassed about it, why would they have let it be released?

Also, if Simmons is such a "loose cannon" then that whole organization must be filled with spineless pussies b/c Billy is far from controversial.

Is this post serious? The book he wrote that was filled with "errors, typos, and inconsistencies" got to #1 on the best sellers list. Are you actually implying it hurt his career? Also, lets be real. Him getting into a bitch fight with olbermann will do nothing to hurt his career. The only people who like Olbermann are far left wing liberals and even some of them don't like him. Olbermann is one of the least popular men in America. Even if Olbermanns right, people will refuse to admit it and Simmons will come out looking good by default. Please don't confuse your hatred of Simmons with reality.

Olbermann really should be careful when writing disparaging comments about black columnists on the Internet. Olbermann blatant racism towards blacks like Ali and Simmons is unacceptable. Overcome bigotry? Yes we can!

This is are country indeed.

Your post makes no sense. What does Olberman's status as biggest douchebag in America have to do with Simmons' poorly articulated article?
