Omar Kelly is a very opinionated sportswriter who happens to cover the Miami Dolphins. He also tweets a lot — over 250,000 times, by Twitter’s count.
Mix those three ingredients in a bowl and not only is he bound to launch some takes that inevitably piss off the players he covers but also inflame opposing stars (see Le’Veon Bell), and prospects (see Brad Kaaya).
There’s even a Twitter account (@OmarsMistakes) dedicated to putting Omar’s mistakes on blast and highlighting these unfortunate but hilarious Twitter beef scenarios. Props to their hard work for making this compilation a simple one.
For the record, Omar is a nice guy. He means well. And not all of these are bad takes — after all it’s the man’s job to critique players. At least it’s better to be polarizing than boring.
HOWEVER, who doesn’t love a good Twitter Beef? We’re going to be constantly updating this list after every future Omar Twitter spat. Our current Omar Kelly Twitter Beef count is 11 — with nine different players.
These are in reverse chronological order.
If we missed any, please let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
Phillips vs. Kelly II (3/18/17)
Congratulations to Jordan Phillips, as the Miami Dolphins’ massive defensive tackle has become our second two-time Twitter beefer with Omar.
We’re sensing a third in the near future after this past weekend’s episode.
Bell vs Kelly (1/9/17)
Omar predicted Kiko Alonso would neutralize Le’Veon Bell in the Dolphins-Steelers playoff game.
Bell, maybe the best back in football, had the final laugh.
@OmarKelly Lol 😩😂

Grant vs. Kelly (1/2/17)
Dolphins return man Jakeem Grant has been a constant target of Kelly’s since getting drafted by Miami one year ago. He’s had had ENOUGH.

I'm sorry, but Jakeem Grant experiment was a major failure. A WR whose hands you don't trust has little value in the NFL. Not into gimmicks pic.twitter.com/aYQpE1Xo5W

Kaaya vs Kelly (12/29/16)
Kelly’s beef dipped into the collegiate ranks last December, with talented Miami quarterback and all-around nice guy Brad Kaaya.
Man….Brad Kaaya think he's ready for the NFL? pic.twitter.com/m42f8rKh9d

Phillips vs. Kelly I (12/26/16)
Round 1 between these two featured Phillips cold-taking Kelly after making fun of Channing Crowder for thinking the team would win 10 games in October — they would go on to win 10 games.

Parker vs. Kelly (9/15/2016)
Dolphins wideout DeVante Parker was informed of Kelly’s dig at practice and proceeded to roll the tweet directly off his shoulders.
Drake vs. Kelly II (8/9/16)
Drake has had a comical and playful back-and-forth with Omar since getting drafted last year.
To Omar’s credit, he tags him now.
Drake vs. Kelly I (7/17/16)
The beginning of the Drake-Kelly beef.
Caroll vs. Kelly (3/9/16)
Nolan Carroll is a zone cornerback, according to Omar Kelly.
Nolan Carroll has been a press man corner his entire career, according to Nolan Carroll.
Taylor vs. Kelly (8/27/15)
Our personal favorite featured Omar reaching and Jamar Taylor preaching.
Stills vs. Kelly (5/1/15)
Kenny Stills was watching when Omar proclaimed him inferior to former Dolphins wideout Mike Wallace.
Come back for more — likely by the end of the week.
