Dont Give a Damn About My Bad Reputation


     Well another magazine has come out with another article filled with the same old cliche stories of how terrible the Philadelphia fans are.  Again, like a rite of spring, we are regaled with tales of vomit, Santa, and snowballs.  Almost as predictable are the cries of protest from my fellow Eagles fans.  "Why do the fans of other teams get a pass for things that get magnified by the national media in Philadelphia?", I hear them ask.  Well I'm here to tell you that it will never stop.  It will never stop because one, it's an easy article to write and two, the article will no doubt be linked to many times and garner thousands of page views.  Maybe it's time we give up and embrace our bad reputation rather than whine about how lazy and misinformed the author of the story is.  I really don't see the advantages to being like Sisyphus and rolling that boulder up the hill only to see it roll back down every time a magazine or blog decides to regurgitate the story.  Actually, as someone who goes to an away game or two a year, I've seen the advantages of having a bad reputation.  You would be shocked at how many people will bring peace offerings of food and/or booze over to you in the parking lot in a effort to nip trouble in the bud.  Or how people will make way for you as you stroll around their stadium.  Consider also that every fan of another team who feels uncomfortable buying a ticket to see their team play the Eagles at the Linc is one more ticket available to an Eagles fan.  Like I said it's time to relish our reputation and stop worrying what the national press and the nattering nabobs of Internet negativity are spewing.
