ESPN suspends Bill Simmons for Critizing ESPN
Here's an interesting development for those still struggling to figure out what warrants punishment in the world of football: ESPN just suspended commentator and Grantland editor Bill Simmons for calling NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a "liar" on his podcast. Simmons will be out for three weeks, and it's unclear if the suspension is paid or unpaid. That's one week longer than the commissioner initially suspended Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for domestic violence, as many furious tweeters noted on Wednesday night (#FreeSimmons is trending right now).

While always entertaining, Simmons is the most smug bastard I've ever read. He needed a reality check that he can't just say whatever he wants.
