ESPN Suspends Bill Simmons from Twitter for Criticizing 'First Take'

I'm a bit surprised that he was suspended for that. But then again it was only a suspension on twitter. He's usually pretty funny. I've read his columns for years.(even though I'm a YANKS/ LAKERS fan). Hopefully we see something in his weekly column which should be out today.

There is nothing wrong with the sounds she makes. That really shouldn't distract you while watching a tennis match. For me it pretty much isn't a women's tennis match unless you hear that.

David Stern Explains Late NBA Start Times: "That's what you jerks want."

Had to be from a Celtic's blog. I honestly have no problem with this. West Coast rules. It's quite convinient actually. The game will finish around 9:30 here so you can do other things after the game. You don't have to go to sleep right after the game. I wish every game started at 7:30 here. Or 10:30 for yall Easterners.

Billy Crystal joins the Yankees.

What are yall talking about? One at-bat is make or break a players career in spring training,,, you have got to be kidding. I thought that people here on Sportsfilter would be smarter than that. It used to be that way, oh so long ago. I think this is a great idea by the way. It will be a fun day, plus the youngsters playing in spring training can say one day that they played with Crystal. They will probably exagerate about the event but it would be cool.

For The Love of Sport: Thursday Night Football

You have some good points. But the thing is that well, mostly all the games that are live on the nfl network during those six weeks,,,, aren't really that good. Indy at atlanta the first week, you knew that was gonna be a blowout. Chicago at Washington, both teams sub-500. Then we got denver at houston, not an excitable matchup. Both sub 500 as well. Then we got the Cinci at San Fran, Do I have to say anything for this one? Pitt at St. Louis, Blowout. Dallas at carolina, blowout. You would have to wait till the last week to get a good game on the nfl network again. New England at NY Giants, semi entertaining game. I have the nfl network, but I rarely watch it. More into espn, but I do like to watch the PACKERS' Practices. And I did watch that PACKERS at cowboys game. So you are really only paying for two good games. Not that tempting. And another thing, the games on MNF aren't that good either this year. How do the broncos get three games MNF and the PACKERS only get one? W/e.

WeedyMcSmokey "I suppose one could suggest that a large contingent of visiting fans gives your ball club that much more money to spend on fielding a team that will beat the club that those visiting fans come to see. Doesn't make it less annoying for the hardcores, but it's very much a good thing." Ummm,,, Just because they are getting more money doesn't really mean that they are gonna put it to good use. I mean their team salary isn't that low is it? They can just over pay players.

Is ESPN Killing the National Hockey League by Influencing Public Attitudes?

Bill Simmons is the S***. On the link from this article for his running diary for the NHL entry draft: "Anyway, Chicago GM Dale Tallon is "proud" to introduce tiny Patrick Kane as his No. 1 pick. This kid looks like an altar boy. I'm not kidding -- he actually looks like an altar boy. I hope his tremendous upside potential involves puberty. More importantly, what the hell happened to the NHL? As if things weren't already bad enough, the league's No. 1 overall pick is an undersized American who looks like the third singer in a boy band? Can we start sending them FEMA money or something?" Wow!!! Haha

Dont we do this with the yankees to much. They start slow, everyone panics, they go on late season tear and win the division. posted by Debo270 Exactly! They start slow They haven't started this slow in a long, long time. Their pitching staff is not just beat up, but historically beat up. So this is different. Is it different enough that Yankees fans should panic? Probably not. But it is different. posted by tieguy On May 7, 2005, the Yankees were 12-19 and in 4th place. Before today's games, they sit 14-15 and in 2nd place. posted by The Crafty Sousepaw Tieguy's comment was quickly disposed of. Haha. Wow sportsfilter seems to be run by redsox fans. Most of these comments have been by redsox fans. They act like if they dont care, saying that they didnt need him. But we will see at the end of the season, as always. Haha.

MLB Credits Hank Aaron With 50 Lost Home Runs

Why can't you guys and girls just stop whining about it? It's really become tiresome. Let the guy hit all the HRs he can. He hasn't been proven guilty. After all, we live in a country where it is "Innocent until proven guilty" not "Guilty until proven Innocent." Barry will break the record, he will do what records are meant for. After he breaks it and somehow evidence is found that he did cheat, strike him from the record books and that will be the end of that. The record is still going to be broken by A-Rod, so all of your complaining will be worthless in twenty years.

How 3-4 Teams See the Draft

The Tribster: "Do you mean the teams that are picking 3rd and 4th in the draft? or teams that play the 3 -4 defense?" Wow, I must ask again. What has Sportsfilter come to? Tribster you've been here since last April and still don't know that you should click on the link if you're going to post something on the thread. Just amazing. Anyways, real good article. The 3-4 is really making a comeback to the game. Liked how the analyst went into detail of the different types of the 3-4. I can see how teams are being more succesful with it. As Debo270 explained, in college the 3-4 isn't used a lot because its more complex than the more used 4-3. It is really harder to find the 3-4 type of players in the draft because the 3-4 is rarely used. However, you can still have much success with the 3-4, it is a great defense. A huge Nose tackle is defenetly needed. But I still hate that 3-4 defense on Madden.

The Hoser's NFL Picks, Postseason Week Two

Cave_Man: "Oh well. I guess one bum prediction is as good as all, for the unthinking. On the Chargers-Pats game, the Pats will slow the run and force the young Chargers QB to beat them, he will make critical mistakes and fall well short. The Pats should have a number of picks in the upcoming game. Tomlison will get his yards, but most will be meaningless and have no impact upon the final result. " You really must be a caveman to be have that kind of prediction. How exactly would LT get his yards if they "slow" the run??? If LT gets his yards, its pretty much Game Over. It is a huge impact, it wont be meaningless. cl: "No need for that, rcade. I think frazer has erected his very own Judith Light monument." Haha...

Plus they play the Seahawks twice so thats a garaunteed two losses. Go Hawks!" What a slanted point of view. I actually think that the cards could be a lot better than they did last season.

I hope this idiot waits until 2007 because then he will be completly worthless and his NFL career will be over so he can go back to the street corner and beg for money." This has to be one of the dumbest comments I have ever read. I think someone else is the real idiot here. Anyways, RB has every right to get as much as he can. Every other player tries to get the best contract possible, why shouldn't he? It would be fun to see what team he would end up with if he did sit out this season and sign up for the next draft? It would be hilarious if the Saints would end up having the #1 pick next year.

psmealey: "I was really disappointed when NCAA football moved to the circus-trick shootouts to settle draws. " You have got to be joking.

Who can forget that classic 2003 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl? Yeah, Miami did get screwed with that Phantom pass interference call, but it was tremendously exciting. Mr Bismarck: "I was impressed at the way nine Americans outplayed ten Italians for large periods of the second half." Was I watching the same game? How exactly did the 9 U.S. players outplay Italy's 10? Italy dominated most, if not all, of the second half. But anyways, I was very impressed how the U.S. played being one man down. They looked nothing like that way they did in their first game. Even though there were some stupid mistakes, cough**Pope**cough, it was a good game. dviking: "Soccer makes golf on tv look exciting."
