...than the Philadelphia Eagles? Now before any Philly fans call for my head, I myself am an Eagles fan, and have been my entire life, but for the life of me, I can't figure this one out.

This team has worked hard all year, won despite losing players at key positions, slowly weeded out any possible primadonnas, has a respectful coach, and yet get no respect from the media or anyone else. Every year they're made out to be an 0-16 team, regardless of how much they proven everyone wrong.

Are we in a time where nobody can get behind a team unless they have a big mouthed clown who disappears in critical situations (Sapp, Shockey), or a player that receives constant blowjobs from the media (Favre, Vick, Sapp again)?

I know by supporting the Eagles, I get labelled as an evil fan who boos santa and throws battery filled snowballs at players, but why does everyone seem to think that's EVERY Eagles fan is that bad. And also, if a classy team can win without gloryhounds, why is that such a bad thing?

OK, why does everyone whine about respect from the media? Isnt your team winning? then why do you care if DR Z doesnt like you or praise you enough? JUST WIN BABY.... fuck the rest.

And for the record Donovan Mcnabb gets plenty of stroking from SI and ESPN. Hes just injured right now. And hell Im already sick of hearing about AJ Feeley.


And plus nobody hates the Eagles... just that god-awful stadium.

I think we are getting pleanty of respect from the media. The eagles have been #1 in the espn power rankings for a few weeks now. The stadium does suck, thankfully we only have 2 more games there.

That's the silliest post I have seen in quite a while. Every media outlet is praising the Eagles as the best team in the NFC. They are praising the terrific defense and the way the offense has continued without their superstar McNab. Geez, some people are never satisfied, are they?

I think the Eagles are getting more than their fair share of coverage from the major outlets. I would rather everyone think of us as underdogs than favorites going into the playoffs.





From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:

DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?

SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.

Does it remind you of any show in particular?

Kitsune: In all honesty, I seriously think the Bucs get a lot more hatred than the Eagles do. At the least, on several other boards I post on, Bucs-bashing is en vogue...

I have to agree with most people here, I don't think the Eagles are getting no respect. It might not be the number one story every week, but it's always talk about at some point. Now some other people might get undeservedly overhyped (Vick) but I don't think the Eagles are too underhyped, as a matter of fact, i've been quite surprised by the attention they have received.

And as an Eagles fan myself, I'm not hated very much, of course down here in Alabama when you say you like the Eagles they ask "what college do they play for?"

They'll be hyped only slightly less than the Pack, who will end up with home field advantage. BWA HA HA HA!

Well... the U.S. has to lose SOME of the time. Besides, being Canadian makes it difficult to root for any American team. I make an exception for the Forty-Niners (since there's no Canadian NFL team) and the Colorado Avalanche. Ike
