Every Thursday night and Sunday afternoon Twitter lights up with NFL fans ripping Phil Simms. I actually find Simms to be quite entertaining and articulate. I do enjoy his work. I do understand the Phil Simms backlash though. He is part of CBS’ A-team of announcers. And he’s got an acerbic personality.

David Moyes feels he got a raw deal from Manchester United

David Moyes didn’t think Manchester United “did right” by him sacking him in less than ten months on the job. Moyes inherited the defending champions and guided them to seventh place.
