ESPN Suspends Bill Simmons Three Weeks For Calling Roger Goodell A Liar

(The Wrap) ESPN suspended sports columnist and on-air personality Bill Simmons for three weeks following a profanity-laced rant against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, which came in the Tuesday edition of his regular “B.S. Report” podcast. “I just think not enough is being made out of the fact that they knew about the tape and they knew what was on it, Simmons said in his podcast. “Goodell, if he didn't know what was on that tape, he's a liar. I'm just saying it. He is lying. I think that dude is lying. If you put him up on a lie detector test that guy would fail.” “For all these people to pretend they didn't know is such fucking bullshit,” he continued. “It really is – it's such fucking bullshit. And for him to go in that press conference and pretend otherwise, I was so insulted. I really was.”
