Former Kansas City Star columnist Jason Whitlock appeared on The B.S. Report with Bill Simmons on ESPN.com.
Here's what Whitlock, a former ESPN employee, had to say:
- He's getting a place in L.A. but will keep his place in Kansas City to "get some sanity here in the good 'ol midwest."
- He said he'd be doing columns, online video, chats and others things for FOXSports.com. "Hopefully I'll get some of my personality out there."
- Says he'll have a "traveling entourage" when he comes to L.A.
- On the Chiefs: "I don't see them as an improved team but I see them with an improved record." Says there aren't enough playmakers on both sides of the ball.
- He says there will be attendance problems at Arrowhead this year and they've sold less than 40,000 season tickets when it used to be closer to 70,000.
- On the Royals in Kansas City: "They're treated like a charity or a kid with a disability."
- He says he used to write about the Royals but then they complained he "played too rough" and he quit writing about them.
- No regrets about The Explanation. Says once people really digest what he says, "I'll be on the right side of history."
It's a pretty good listen. Click here to check it out. I'll be coming back on Wednesday with some final thoughts on Whitlock.
