Last night, not more than 12 hours after making fun of the Sporting News’ coverage of Lane Johnson’s $17k Del Frisco’s rookie dinner bill, Evan Mathis tweeted yet another bill from the steak joint, this one totaling over $64k. His caption: Teaching rookies a lesson…

He was trolling the media, hard.*

The bat signal had been shone above the ivory tower, and the righteous immediately took to the web machine to opine:

Howard Eskin, weirdly, turned his ire toward Del Frisco’s themselves:

And easily the best response of all, the Sun Sentinel:

Hook, line and sinker.

Mathis has been known to bait, troll and generally mess with the media and society in general through Twitter and other means. In April, he tricked Paul Domowitch into reporting that he wouldn’t be attending voluntary offseason workouts by sending Domo a screenshot of a map pin inTurks and Caicos. He once pissed on the IRS building. And he poked fun at Jason Peters’ signing bonus.

This morning, we got the prestige:

His buddy, Jason Kelce, explained to the WIP Morning Show today just how much work went into the hoax:

“This was a complete hoax [laughing] that was designed by Evan Mathis to mislead the media across the nation,” Kelce said on Friday morning. “Apparently, it did its job. He spent all day making sure the prices were right, making sure everything looked good.”

*He got me, too, by (impressively) digging up a screenshot of a douchey Tweet I sent over a year ago. But he’s since deleted that one.

    The first letters of each of the items spell out ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS-ROSHAMBO

  • Candy from the Oak June 13, 2014 at 9:13 am

    A better trick would have been a black Eagle tipping over 4%

  • Sean Brace June 13, 2014 at 9:28 am

    Call me pie face one more time on here.

    • Pie Face June 13, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Sean brace is a bald, pie faced wigger

  • Mikey Mess June 13, 2014 at 9:37 am

    “He spent all day making sure the prices were right, making sure everything looked good.”

    Once again, proving the commentors’ point that these are 2 douches with nothing better to do.

    Oh, they got us. They got us bad. And I’m sure everyone here will repent and never again say a bad word about these 2 pillars of the Eagles’ offensive line.

    Nah, they’re still douches.

  • Not Sean Brace June 13, 2014 at 9:47 am

    Seriously though on the Lane Johnson tab Delfrisco’s couldn’t comp the sodas at least for the Philadelphia Eagles as a sign of good will? Cheapskates.

    • Mikey Mess June 13, 2014 at 9:55 am

      Of course they’re cheap. They use the 3rd-string twat as a spokesman, not even the main host.

    Of course eskin takes the bait

  • Hank Scorpio June 13, 2014 at 10:10 am

    I love this team more and more each day.

  • Junkhead June 13, 2014 at 10:15 am

    Kyle, I saw on twitter that you have a sick dog on your hands. I sincerely hope your pup gets to feeling better soon. A sick pet is the worst, but at least yours is young and probably just had a bad reaction to the recent procedure. Good luck.

    P.S. You may now commence trolling my handle.

  • MM June 13, 2014 at 10:31 am

    Kyle, your dog was munching on a squirrel the other day and there are a glut of assholes poisoning squirrels this year for some reason, sorry to hear it, get her to the vet asap. Just went through this myself. Best of luck…

    • Serious June 13, 2014 at 10:38 am


      MM is right. Make sure the vet knows that the dog may have bitten a poisoned squirrel. The poison (probably rat poison) can kill the dog as well, even second hand.

  • The Media's twat June 13, 2014 at 10:36 am

    Everyone needs to go read the “Article” on PFT and see how butt hurt Mike Florio is about this, sounds like a huge jit-bag.

  • sinisalo June 13, 2014 at 10:37 am

    I’m pretty far over the Mathis/Kelce/Barwin bro-fest. However, I did like the 1 Iced Tea for $4 on the bill.

  • Mike Florio June 13, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    I can’t believe how immature this is. How am I supposed to take an athlete at his word when he says things that aren’t true?

    That would be like posting a story on my website without any real sources or checking to verify its true. It’s also like posting a story that isnt true, then spending a couple weeks trying to show everyone that everyone else thought it was true, so it must be.

      Check with the Phillies. I heard that Ryne Sandberg is sending a stool sample to White Castle.

  • Hollis January 14, 2015 at 9:23 pm

    Hi there, the whole thing is going sound here and ofcourse every one is sharing facts,
    that’s genuinely fine, keep up writing.
