Report: Fake ESPN President Tried To Get D.C. Radio Show Cancelled

Last week, we reported on how former Washington Post columnist Jason Reid's new radio show The Man Cave, which was supposed to debut last Monday on Dan Snyder-owned and ESPN-affiliated WTEM, didn't.

Did Bill Simmons Make A Fool Of Himself On WWE Raw?

Bill Simmons joined Snoop Dogg as a special guest on tonight's WWE Raw, and if that sounds like the dumbest thing in the world to you, you'd be right. Simmons didn't even take a bump, which is some weak bullshit. Even worse, it appears Simmons may have broken kayfabe by inquiring about the of-late absence of "the… » 3/23/15 9:59pm 3/23/15 9:59pm

Colin Cowherd Loves Oregon Because Of All The Wonderful White People

On his radio show today, butt-faced shitbag Colin Cowherd dropped the dog whistle for once while yakking his way through a segment in which he seeded all of the states in order of how much he likes them.

Bill Simmons Questions ESPN's Support Of Grantland

At SXSW, Bill Simmons gave a legitimately interesting interview to Re/code. It features Simmons sliding from passive-aggression to bluntness, but always railing against his ESPN bosses for not giving Grantland the funding or credit he believes it deserves. » 3/16/15 2:31pm 3/16/15 2:31pm

Bill Simmons Is A Name-Dropping Waste

So Bill Simmons offered a "sneak" preview today of the third part of his NBA Trade Value column. And yes, his self-mythologizing has gotten to the point where he a) breaks some random-ass rankings into three parts, b) releases a "sneak preview" of the third part of those rankings because "we couldn't resist" (and by… » 3/13/15 4:34pm 3/13/15 4:34pm

Stephen A. Smith Floats The Theory That Maybe Chip Kelly Is A Racist

Listen. First Take is a trashy, cynical show that exists so that Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless, two of the widest talking sphincters in sports punditry, can take turns spouting fake and bad shit to the masses. Most of the time, it's so disingenuous that it's depressing, but sometimes, one of these two fellas comes… » 3/09/15 12:45pm 3/09/15 12:45pm

Nick Young Is Clapping Back At Robert Flores For Ethering Iggy Azalea

As Jigga's Law states, for every "Ether" there is an equal and opposite "Super Ugly" as the offended party seeks to redress their injuries in diss form. And while Iggy Azalea herself has henceforth been quiet about the smackdown ESPN's Robert Flores laid on her today, her boyfriend Nick Young has come out swinging. » 3/02/15 2:06pm 3/02/15 2:06pm

Kimbo Slice Wants To Show You His Romantic Side (It's His Dong)

Kimbo Slice—yes, that Kimbo Slice—and Ken Shamrock announced a fight this week on a June 20 Bellator card, so Slice made an appearance on Highly Questionable.

Report: ESPN And Fox Sports Nearly Traded Employees

Hey, here's a fun little story. Remember last week when Fox Sports's Katie Nolan went on the BS Report, and she and Bill Simmons kinda coyly reminisced about a failed attempt at bringing her over to Grantland, in the way that people talk about these things on the BS Report, where they don't actually say anything,… » 2/25/15 3:30pm 2/25/15 3:30pm
