“Forced to testify” – that’s interesting. http://t.co/jcCLPpYm38
— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) October 23, 2014
ESPN’s suspension of Bill Simmons for ranting about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ended Wednesday, October 15. Last night, he was back at it again, poking the bear. Simmons’ tweet correctly points out that if the NFL isn’t hiding something, why did Goodell have to be forced to testify in the Ray Rice hearing?
Simmons’ attack on Goodell was much more brutal the first time — he called Goodell a liar, described the situation as “f-ing bullshit,” and dared ESPN to suspend him. Nevertheless, it’s amazing that Simmons is back taking shots at the commissioner so soon.
Most of the replies to this tweet say something along the lines of “Don’t get fired Bill.” Perhaps it’s time to start wondering if that’s exactly what he wants.
