He makes some good points in general though

Otherwise, don't have too much to say but it's an overall interesting take from an admittedly outsider's perspective.
Nailed my opinion.

Simmons' whole appeal is that he's the typical sports fan who happens to write well and be slightly more funny than the average guy.

There's many flawed facts: He's way more likely to say "What the hell is hockey doing in hot-weather cities like __________" and not have his facts straight on who's actually doing solid business.

But his mindset is pretty much spot on the pulse of the US Sports Fan who isn't a die-hard hockey guy.
