Cris Collinsworth Laid Into Bill Simmons On Twitter

HBO canceled “Any Given Wednesday.” It now appears to be open season on Bill Simmons, at least for folks not sweating the next round of hires at The Ringer

Richard Sandomir laid into Simmons in the New York Times. Cris Collinsworth went for the throat in a now deleted tweet after Simmons criticized his analysis. Here’s a screengrab.

If that tweet were a soccer tackle, it would be a merciless scything. Here was Simmons’ tweet that elicited that response.

Internet gawkers will declare Collinsworth the winner. Though, the true winner is sports media blogs.
