The boiling bad blood between Bill Simmons and ESPN shows no sign of cooling off anytime soon. It seems that ever since The Sports Guy left the friendly confines of ESPN, he’s been on a mission to take swings at his former employer at nearly every turn. Of course, that’s not all that different from when Simmons was actually working at ESPN and calling out everyone from Ray Lewis to Mike & Mike to his bosses.
Now that he’s ready to launch his new website The Ringer and get back to writing, Simmons says he’s keeping tabs on the list of writing ideas that ESPN talent has “hijacked” from him.
Keeping a list of all the ideas/columns/premises that ESPN talent has hijacked from me and/or Grantland these past few months. So shameless.

I’m looking forward to Simmons’ first post at The Ringer, which will be his entire list of grievances against ESPN. At this rate, it may be longer than his best-sellling Book of Basketball.
