If I were a jock, Philadelphia is the last place
I'd want to play.
Not being the nicest town or in the nicest climate - but I have a different reason.
It's the fans - are they the worst?
It's not a lack of passion - they have that in abundance, esp when it comes to HATING on opponents, their own players, and even Santa Claus.
If I were a player, why
would I want to play in a stadium or arena of not fans, but boo birds? That's got to put Philadelphia at a disadvantage in the free agent market, and why they their teams have one just one championship the past quarter century or so. They are the anti-Cleveland - who can make them happy?
Andy Reid has not done well the past couple of seasons, but you wonder if he might survive if he were in Pittsburgh. Or to put it another way, when Bill Cowher had a low spot maybe he would have been out if he'd been in Philadelphia.
Philly fans - don't they bring it on themselves?
