Why Bill Simmons Is Better Than Rick Reilly

18 Dec

He’s actually fun! Their most recent columns:

Bill Simmons
Mickey Rourke in a movie about pro wrestling? Bill is sold.‘Wrestler’ wins
Rick Reilly
Everyone hates Tyler Hansbrough, North Carolina’s All-American poster boy. And it’s pretty obvious why … even to Psycho T.

Sure, his shtick may be tiring a bit after so many years of Saved By The Bell references, and 80s and 90s pop culture references, but it’s much better than Reilly’s sap and ‘wit’. Reilly’s latest column looks suspiciously like an FJM-style blog post. Plus, Simmons throws out an enjoyable podcast every week or so, while Reilly makes horrible appearances on the mothership.

    To me it seems as though Rick Reilly is just another guy that ESPN has killed. Reilly was best when he was writing for Sports Illustrated, but perhaps his best days were behind him before he finished his time with SI.

    I never liked him to begin with, but he’s only gotten worse.
