Les Bowen Stumbled into yet Another Chirp Fest with a Colleague Today

I’m not sure why Les Bowen considers it wise or a sound career strategy to keep poking peers and colleagues, but that was again the case today when he responded, needlessly, to Jimmy Kempski’s Tweet promoting his forward-looking post about potential Eagles draft targets:

I’m not a fan of nonsensical draft conjecture, especially this early in the season, but Kempski does indeed know his audience, and on a day with a mostly meh slate of college games, his post at least provides some viewing guidance. Les is just a bitter, bitter man. Whether it’s a knock-down, drag-out (and literal!) Twitter fight with Jeff Mclane, or ripping genuinely successful new mediaererer Mike Florio, or complaining about Eliot Shorr-Parks’ reporting on the DeSean Jaccson story, or knocking bloggers doing good work, or previously chiding Kempski, Bowen is someone who has a serious problem with new media. Here’s a guy who “respects” his colleagues’ work, and yet…

… a dig at Kempski’s propensity for using intentionally poorly drawn stick figures in his work, an approach that is both funny and insightful. Kempski is different in a way that is refreshing, especially on a mainstream site like Philly.com, and the fact that Bowen keeps criticizing this type of work makes him look like a Casio watch at 3 p.m. last Tuesday.

  1. Kempski sucks, the majority of his articles just rip the other NFC East teams and have no actual content, he apeals to the WIP moron who calls in just to say DALLAS SUCKS…..come to think of it, that’s 75% of the fan base

  2. Kyle and Jim should start acting like Philly.com reporters and throw barbs at each other (hard-hitting ones, like ‘Sigh.’) on Twitter about each other’s Crossing Broad articles.

  3. Les needs to grab a beer or watch some porn & relax. Cranky fuck

  4. Seriously every time I listen to wip or 97.5 this Jeff from Camden motherfucker is calling in spewing his incoherent gibberish.

    If Jose from Norristown and Angry Al can get banned on the regular,so should jobless Jeff.
