Philadelphia Media Wars Have Gotten Increasingly Hostile: Jeff McLane and Les Bowen Threw Fists and Asante Samuel Chimed In

Ding! Ding!

Remember that “Mike Vick likely to play” story from Tuesday? It was penned by Jeff McLane of the Inquirer. A writer at the Daily News, Les Bowen, tried to mock McLane on twitter, claiming his story was poppycock. McLane exploded at him for being an “old hack and not “breaking a story in years.” [I can’t get into all the minutiae; but Crossing Broad, which has been flooding the zone with coverage of this story, has everything, in case the best tweets were deleted.]

Today at practice, Bowen reportedly took a swing at McLane, and it cause such a ruckus that Asante Samuel was joking about it – loudly – in the locker room.

All that’s missing here is the Rocky music. [Samuel video via Crossing Broad]
