  • Fuck Jimmy December 18, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Well I’m out, I can’t stand that little pussy Jimmy Kempski, I’d rather try to stuff a Pepsi can up my asshole than listen to that wanna be tough guy.

  • Branko Radivojevič December 18, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    Tommy is one of the best ones out there for Eagles info. Guy has spent a long time doing amateur work and had a great eye even before he had access to the coaches camera view like most reporters do.

  • Chips Ahoy December 18, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Eagle Insider podcast dates:
    December – an exciting two shows of dwindling playoff chances
    January – dead air
    February – dead air

  • Scott December 18, 2014 at 3:25 pm

    Tommy is lowering his standards working with Kempski! Just kidding! You guys are the best!

  • Wawa Vinny December 18, 2014 at 3:28 pm

    Leave it to the dumpster fire crossing broad Comment section to throw filth on an otherwise joyous announcement.

    You ingrate mouth breathers are a fucking disgrace. Kempski and Lawlor joining Liberty Broadcast is tremendous news, I can’t wait to devour their weekly podcast.

    • Ivan the Ingrate December 18, 2014 at 4:16 pm

      Are you a fish with gills?? i would like to know how your body is supplied with oxygen.

      It’s for science….

  • Your Mother December 18, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    I refuse to welcome any “sports radio” type personality to anything but walking the plank. I seriously can’t stand any of these assholes. This is what living in the tri-state area listening to total douchebags on the radio does to a person.

    • Kyle Scott December 18, 2014 at 4:27 pm

      This isn’t radio.

      • Your Mother December 18, 2014 at 5:15 pm

        Nope, nothing like it at all. That explains the radio transmitting tower in the logo.

        Philadelphia sports radio has left me jaded and I would rather read (read) insightful opinion on sports where there’s no blowhard giving an opinion which usually sucks. I can’t listen to it anymore, i’m done.

        • Kyle Scott December 19, 2014 at 10:25 am

          I don’t think you have any idea what’s actually in these podcasts.

      • Awaiting Moderation December 19, 2014 at 3:22 pm

        Hmmmm…..probably a bunch of guys sitting around a table in front of microphones with headphones on, and talking.

        Not a bit like radio at all….

  • DS December 18, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    Jimmy Kempski is a Eagles ass-kisser with absolutely no objectivity whatsoever. Dave Spadarro is more critical of the Eagles than Kempski

  • Dr. Marvin Monroe December 18, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    If you read the headline quickly, you can convince yourself that Jerry the King Lawler is the guest.

    But then you go back and read it again, and the sadness sets in.

  • Furkan Aldemir's shot foot December 18, 2014 at 4:32 pm

    How about the Sixers getting screwed in signing an injury prone lemon in Turkish power forward Aldemir.

    I guess the same medical people who examined Andrew Bynum also examined Furkan Aldemir.

    One game in and his foot is shot(smdh).

  • UQ December 18, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Isn’t the season almost over? I’m confused. Is this for the 2015 season?

  • Loke December 18, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    GoEaglles99 aka T Lawyer is and always has been an Eagles apologist/spin doctor.
    Ill pass

  • Kyle Scott's Small Penis December 18, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    Lawlor was all about Bradley Fletcher.

    He’s a dude who watches football tape and writes things that sound substantially better than the average internet commenter, therefore he is terrific. And Kempski is a douchebag nobody….big deal you draw stick figures.

    There’s no difference between these 2 dopes and the dopes you hear on the radio, except the dopes on the radio are actually good broadcasters.*

    *-not including Jon and Sean

    • Furkan Aldemir's shot foot December 18, 2014 at 6:43 pm

      And Phil from Mt. Airy and Harry Mayes,they’re absolutely brutal.

  • kelce's beard December 18, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    well done guys! especially Jimmy – this may be one of your best comments sections yet.

  • Kyle Scott's Small Penis December 18, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Everything I needed to know about “Liberty Broadcasting” I found out in the much-hyped Scott O’Neill episode.

    You had 2 fanboys stumbling over each other to tell Scott how they were “down with the plan” while stammering and ummming their way through the questions and the set up. Then they let Scott, a noted propagandist, monologue for 10 minutes uninterrupted while he made it seem like Sam Hinkie was basically Mother Teresa. Then they budded up to him by taking his side for his exchange with Eskin. ESKIN!

    I know it’s easy to punch up, Kyle. Attack sports radio, you’re so much better. Here’s a thought: Let me know when you develop broadcasting talent, interviewing skills and get rid of your hipster sidekick. Then come back to me.

  • wrongnessmaximus December 18, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    At least it’s not Brace and Marks

  • Mike Vick's Parole Officer December 18, 2014 at 11:07 pm

    Typical airhead Philly sports entertainment. If you douche nozzles want real, intelligent sports analysis, tune in to Josh Innes. He’s the only real sports personality on the landscape.

    • Josh Innes seriously awesome! December 18, 2014 at 11:20 pm

      With SCooby Doo reference aside, he is total sport expert.

  • Tom S December 19, 2014 at 9:23 am


    How do I get the podcasts on android ?

    • It's Easy December 19, 2014 at 9:31 am

      1) Download the App
      2) Put in Microwave for 2-3 minutes.

    • Kyle Scott December 19, 2014 at 10:27 am

      Stitcher is a good app for it.

  • Kev December 19, 2014 at 10:05 am

    The Eagles website already has an “Eagles Insider Podcast.” Couldn’t come up with something more original?

  • Lewwyn December 19, 2014 at 10:11 am

    Finally! Helmet to Helmet redux! I’ve waited so long…

  • Sean Braces' gpa December 19, 2014 at 11:43 am

    How the hell can you call Kempski’s writing in-depth? Have you ever read one of his “articles”? The guy just makes lists, he’s horrendous. And I’m not trying to be an asshole either, his articles are seriously dog shit

  • dave December 19, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    Jimmy is great. I remember before when he had his own website and covered the whole NFC East in detail. He tell the story as it is and tells it in detail.

    I would love to see all these people say their comments to Jimmy in person. I doubt they would be talking all that smack to his face.

    • Sean Braces' gpa December 19, 2014 at 1:33 pm

      Yeah please tell your husband Jimmy I’d have no issue doing so. He’d probably just list the reasons I was wrong as a response.

      Seriously, google his articles from It’s a list after stupid list
