2. He made a big deal about being into EPL but he never ****ing talks about soccer anymore, so he's like a gazillion other americans who every year claim that they will follow soccer abroad and then quit.
as everyone else has said, these are two pretty bizarre gripes.

Re: Bill Simmons/Sports Guy Containment Thread

he loves talking about Usage Rate now, but whenever he talks about it it's clear he doesn't quite understand what it measures. He think it's basically touches, when really it's just shots and TOs, which is why guys like Nash and Paul never have crazy high usages.

Re: Bill Simmons/Sports Guy Containment Thread

bill and millman, talking about superbowl total points

bill : SF 49, SD 26, that's the only time we've been in the seventies. so maybe that 100/1 bet for the over 70..could be.....though if it's happened once in 44 games then 100/1 is not a bad bet for it.................i do think if they played at least 100 times they'd score over seventy points at least once in a game. so if you're just basing it off probability and what's a good bet...

millman : then that is almost by definition a value bet, y'know, good value. i mean if you talk to guys who do tennis/pga betting, if they can get a guy at relatively high odds who they think could win that tournament more than once in that number of odds, then they would take it!

A+ radio.

there's been 2-3 mentions in the past 24 hours, doubt he will reply, just like he hasn't replied to the 10k tweets saying 'where the **** is the klosterman podcast you promised?'
