Bill Simmons suspended three weeks by ESPN
ESPN broadcaster Bill Simmons called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a liar. He then issued a threat daring the broadcaster to punish him.
Now, they have.
He's been suspended for three weeks and removed from Tiwtter.
“Every employee must be accountable to ESPN and those engaged in our editorial operations must also operate within ESPN’s journalistic standards,” the statement read. “We have worked hard to ensure that our recent NFL coverage has met that criteria. Bill Simmons did not meet those obligations in a recent podcast, and as a result we have suspended him for three weeks.”
