After ESPN’s Bill Simmons seemingly dared his employer to punish him after blasting NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on his podcast Monday, ESPN has suspended Bill Simmons for three weeks. Simmons called Goodell a liar in a profane tirade on the B.S. Report, and in a statement, ESPN said that Simmons failed to meet the company’s journalistic standards.

“Every employee must be accountable to ESPN and those engaged in our editorial operations must also operate within ESPN’s journalistic standards. We have worked hard to ensure that our recent NFL coverage has met that criteria. Bill Simmons did not meet those obligations in a recent podcast, and as a result we have suspended him for three weeks.”
