  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

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

      It’s for science….

  5. 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.

      1. 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.

      2. 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….

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

    1. 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
