She also threw a temper tantrum when Awful Announcing wrote an article pointing out she was technically going after a coworker. Awful Announcing, who has been the biggest Nolan cheerleaders out there, even as Garbage Time tanked. Awful Announcing, who didn't even really criticize her.

Awful Announcing is...awful, I guess. That's all I have to add to this conversation.

r/billsimmons has some deep thoughts about Katie Nolan

Somehow Katie Nolan remains on the bench.
She's obviously been discussed here before - some people like her more than others, but even a non-fan like myself acknowledges she has a certain talent and plays well on television.
Now a couple years ago, Nolan and Simmons went on each other's pods and flirted their way through mutual admiration sessions. Then she gets in a spat with her bosses at FS1. Rumor had it she'd turn up at ESPN - hasn't happened. Surely she'd fit right in at the Ringer, no?
But something odd has happened - Simmons has gone from completely enamored with her to never mentioning her. Nolan has made a snarky comment or two in interviews, but nothing of much substance. Then today, the Ringer uploads a dumb video mocking the quality of tonight's game. Nolan and some of her Garbage Time colleagues drop comments suggesting, I think, that the Ringer borrowed this idea from her old show.
Can anybody fill in the blanks. What happened here? Why is she not on the air? Why the cold shoulder from BS (or is it the other way around)?


I don't think there is anything personal going on between them. But The Ringer simply cannot attract higher level talent who have interest in doing television work because they cannot afford to pay that talent at market rates AND The Ringer does not have any real distribution platform of their own.
Nolan, even if she was willing to discount herself heavily, has enough of a following and name recognition to want $1 million a year minimum. She also seems very loyal to her team, and would want to bring over as many of her writers and producers over to wherever she goes, costing perhaps another $1 million. The Ringer's payroll simply cannot afford those prices.
They would have to pretty much bet the company to offer Nolan's group a 4-5 year deal at even those heavily discounted prices, when ESPN can easily offer more, with a guarantee that they will still be around and financially liquid in five years. Can The Ringer guarantee the same?
In terms of distribution, it's not even close. The Ringer is completely reliant on existing third party internet platforms for reaching an audience. They have no network, infrastructure, or even a studio production team to speak of now that he is dead at HBO (they have one nice set, which is not the same). That is why Simmons is so artificially high on Twitter and Periscope being the wave of the future - he has no other platforms to choose from. If Twitter chooses to unilaterally change the terms of using their service, there is nothing The Ringer can do about it, other than move to another platform they have no control over and begin to tout that as the wave of the future (just like they were forced to move from Medium to Vox when Medium changed their business model).
So if you are Nolan and want to do TV, would you gamble your whole career on Simmons' insane take on the future of Twitter AND take significantly less money because you might otherwise bankrupt the company you just signed on with? Or just go with fucking Walt Disney and their massive power and reach already in place, and get paid your market value?
They might be friends, but there isn't really any choice here. The Ringer, without HBO, is not a player in broadcast television content and distribution. They simply do not have the cash or existing infrastructure to compete.

how you find these places, and why you seek them out in the first place, is one of the great mysteries of sotsg.

I don't think they smashed. I have a ticket at 6-1 that Simmons tried to bang and was shot down and Katie got upset by it.
