Any chance Simmons is quitting ?????

Postby sacsgfan » 30 Mar 2006, 02:05

Is Simmons quitting ESPN or at least changing his role ? Too may signs.....

a) I remember him mentioning that his contract was coming up around now.
b) He has written very sparingly over the last 2 weeks.
c) He has not requested a new intern:).
d) His interview with SI revealed a serious lack of passion for whatever he is doing right now and he spoke about how he'd get bored of this job soon....
e) There's a good chance all the demands of the past 18 months have finally caught up with him and that he has pulled a Chappelle and might take a long break....

lemme know what u guys think..

cheers,
shyam

You forgot the loving homage to homo sex between cowboys.

He's running away and joining the fag circus.

Well, this thread is off to a fantastic start...

P.S. Thanks for the new nightmare, where I'm trapped in the clown car at the "fag circus."

He hasn't written anything good since he left for LA.....This happens all the time....when people are starting out and hungry, they make it happen...once they make it, the easy life rolls in and they don't care anymore...

This is Simmons we're talking about, a whiny little baby. He probably came down with the flu or a cold that most people would get over in two days. Expect a More Cowbell update explaining how he came down with an Ebola like virus and this is why he cannot write.

Wow, lots of rookies bringing the hate.


Simmons has made mention in several different places that he sees a finite amount of time at the Worldwide Leader. IIRC, his contract is coming up. I think it would be reasonable to expect him to move on to something else or a different outlet for his work.

Yeah, they're really fitting in nicely.

And, while I could see the Sports Guy leaving, I doubt it'll be within a year or anything. Just a gut feeling, really.

If only this were professional sports - in a contract year, TSG would be putting up career bests.

NAMBLA might, considering his boyish affection toward Hench-Bug.

Pommpie is a smart guy though. I think that was an intentional.
