Bill Simmons opening the door for a potential ESPN exit?

If you were writing a Sports Media Trade Value column, where would you rank “Bill Simmons’ Expiring Contract”?

Bill Simmons takes jab at Skip Bayless

  Skip Bayless caused plenty of controversy when he recklessly called Johnny Manziel a liar and an alcoholic on First Take.  Of course, ESPN did nothing to discipline their golden child for publicly spouting such wild and dangerous allegations because Skip Bayless is secretly the most powerful man at ESPN.
