  • If booing matters to a professional athlete

    ...then they should find another occupation.

    It's a fan's right to voice their opinion about their team and the opposition. If you're a Stepford fan or just want everybody to "play nice", I hope you enjoyed kindergarten--it's the last time you'll see it.

    WELCOME TO THE PHILA. SPORTS FANISM. WIN, WE LOVE YA, LOSE,WE LOVE YA, BUT YOU'RE A DICK FOR LOSING.

    The classic Philly sports fan mindset. It's not right or wrong - it is what it is. Both a shame and a mantle of pride. Love and hate in constant turmoil.

    Exactly. We pay most of their multi million dollar salary. While it is possible to go over the line such as the fan spitting on Nick Collins Monday night, there is nothing wrong with being able to voice your opinion on whether you love or hate someone. Apathy is the worst thing a fan base can have, The Pirates fans for example need to be more vocal about the product on the field. Its a great thing to have loud brash fans voice their opinion and these guys need to realize that while it sucks being booed they arent getting hurt by it, and when they go back "home" nine times out of ten they are well received.
