John Madden thinks Titletown should go to the town that has won the most titles. It will meet both criteria of one, having the most titles, and two being a town. And that town will win titletown because of the titles that town has won. ;-D

My bad, I usually just use titles instead of Brett Farve cause when you think of Farve all you think of are titles anyway. :-°

I am not his biggest fan, but enjoy some of his columns (NBA Draft Diary comes to mind) and was wondering why he hardly ever writes for ESPN.com anymore.


Like Pogo said, he is taking the summer off to write his book. I think there is also a rift with him and ESPN due to their hiring of R Reilly. Nothing to confirm that but it seems to be a reasonable guess.

From the almighty Wikipedia:

Currently, Bill Simmons appears to be embroiled in a feud with management at ESPN.com. When asked by the editors of Deadspin.com why he had not written a new column in over 2 weeks, he replied "I still love writing my column and only re-signed last year because I really did believe that we had hashed out all the behind the scenes bullshit and come to some sort of agreement on creative lines, media criticism rules, the promotion of the column and everything else on ESPN.com. Within a few months, all of those things changed and certain promises were not kept. It's as simple as that."

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Simmons never seemed to be a traditional ESPN lackey, so this kind of stuff doesn't surprise me.
His columns, books, and podcasts were always top notch in my book. ;-D
