    Beat writers fight at Eagles practice

    A war of words on Twitter between two Philadelphia Eagles beat writers escalated into a physical altercation Wednesday, with one writer landing a punch to his counterpart's head.



    Looking for more dirt on the Eagles? Get the inside slant, stats, scores, schedules and more scoops right here.

    Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News and Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer had to be separated by their peers at the Eagles practice facility, according to local sports radio personality and WCAU-TV contributor Howard Eskin.

    The two men were involved in a Twitter spat Tuesday, during which McLane called the elder Bowen an "old hack that hasn't broken a story in years."

    Bowen, who vowed on Twitter to handle his "business in person" landed a punch to McLane's head before the feuding beat writers were quickly broken up, according to Eskin.

    Nothing like a good punch to settle the issue of chump journalism.

    Seriously: is there any redeeming trait with anything associated with that franchise? Punks on the field, animal cruelty, a head coach who can't be distracted from his career to parent kids who desperately needed him, fans who vomit on children, batteries in snowballs, booing Santa at Christmas time, and beat reporters coming to blows over twitter fights. What a bunch of clowns.

    at least they dont have to worry about those hooligans up in Filthy rioting in the streets in celebration of a SB victory.....but then again, they always riot in the streets cause they are Filthydelphians.

    Seems like pretty standard Philly stuff. Probably the most openly hostile first world city I've ever spent time in. People just seem pissed off all the time.

    Not to mention the seven year old kid throwing rocks at the Giants bus (and the parent who would allow him to do this).

    Hope a video follows soon. Beat writers fighting would be a funny reality show.

    Knowing the Philly media very well, I'm surprised it was these two who ended up fighting.
