There is a longstanding myth that Philadelphia sports fans (and I am one) are so smart and informed. FWIW - this is a myth (origin unknown) and is in fact a big steaming load of bullshit.
Ryan Howard won Rookie of The Year and an MVP Award the next year. I have heard dumb ignorant Phillies fans boo him on several occasions. They are truly dumb and ignorant. They are not smart nor informed sports fans contrary to the myth that gets mouthed everytime a national sports crew comes to Philly to do a big game.
Let me repeat Philadelphia fans are no better nor smarter than the average fan in any city. BUT Philadelphia Eagles fans may be dumber than average. My evidence is I still remember when an Eagles fan called into the sports talk radio and asked if Dan Klecko would get any reps and carries at fullback. First, Klecko will be lucky if he makes the team and WTF does anyone with half a brain care if a 4th-string tackle gets to play 3rd -string fullback. Sheesh!
