Bill Simmons is Dying to Get Fired

In the last few days, Bill Simmons’s “Please, ESPN, Please Just Fire Me” Tour has made a couple of unexpected stops.

First, Bill stopped in at Deadspin to roast edparting editor Will Leitch, unsing some very Disney-unfriendly language.

Then, today, in his annual running diary of the NBA Draft (a highlight every year, and his funniest piece in months, imho), he actually did something he’s been wanting to do for years, and made some serious fun of the ESPN announcers, something his editors (and their bosses, surely) have been not letting him do for years.  Interesting….

Question is, why?  Why does he want out of his contract with ESPN?

  1. Because he sucks under the current restrictions and it’s definitely hurting his readership stats.
