Bill Simmons' Grantland Having Startup Troubles

Bill Simmons’ website Grantland shut down this morning. No one made a moderate funny about Bud Selig in the sidenotes. ESPN is not reconsidering why the brand needs a separate website to house Bill Simmons and a smattering of his friends with homogeneous interests, sensibilities and writing styles. It was merely a server issue.

Server problems. Editing oversights (Game 7 of the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals). This really is resembling a low-budget startup. Well…except for the promotion and the part about everyone getting paid.
