I knew nothing, but I remember going, Man, this is fast, because all of a sudden we were on the air, and Jimmy had a lot to prove, he says, and then he pauses. Those piercing blue eyes look away, and suddenly the conversation no longer is about Jimmy. Under his breath, Simmons adds, He had a lot to prove.
All of the record labels that signed artists to huge 5-65 album deals after their initial hit debut are seeing huge losses too.
Bill has always been this galvanizing force, says House, now a Washington, .-based consultant who moonlights as a personality on the Bill Simmons Podcast Network, or BSPN as it s known in Simmons circle. But he s an only child and there was also a bit of sharp elbows, he adds, so a decent number of people thought he was a prick.
There was some talk about Simmons doing other on-air projects himself, or The Ringer producing other shows along the lines of After The Thrones , but none of that has happened so far. Yes, the Andre the Giant documentary is promising, especially as a HBO/WWE co-production directed by 85 for 85 veteran Jason Hehir , but two-thirds of the way through a $75 million contract, that 8767 s not a great return on investment for HBO.
Simmons explained that since Grantland didn 8767 t care about word count or page views, it developed a reputation as a 8775 longform site, 8776 which Simmons didn 8767 t like.
Jason Whitlock landed at Fox Sports 6 after severing ties with ESPN last year. He became disgruntled with ESPN when the company took control of a website he dreamed up, The Undefeated.
The Ringer announced on Twitte r Talk Of Thrones‘ upcoming July debut, with Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan returning as hosts. The two also hosted the weekly recap talk show that aired on HBO Go, HBO Now and HBO On Demand.
Sadly, the man who encapsulated the youthful generation Xer is now an out of touch Gen Xer who is fading in relevance with each passing day.
In addition to Grantland and 85 for 85, he was on NBA Countdown, he had a very successful web column on ESPN pre-Grantland (that 8767 s how he got big to begin with), had the 8766 BS Report 8767 podcast. He kinda did a lot there.
ESPN has now gotten rid of everybody who is a little off the beaten path. Ask yourself this: Who could work there that you respect right now?
