One thing that can bring resentment for a team is the quality of its fans. The fans of Miami and Philadelphia may show it in different ways, but their arrogance and attitude go a long way in drawing frustration from other fans.
Miami Heat fans confused many by not showing up for games on time, and rarely showing enthusiasm despite the winning ways of its team. No team with the talent of the Heat last season should have to ask their city to “fan up”.
It wasn't that big of a surprise NBA commentator Charles Barkley said Miami “have the worst fans (in professional sports). No question.”
Similarly, the confusingly critical fans of the Philadelphia Eagles (and other Philadelphia teams) don’t do much to engender support from outside The City of Brotherly Love.
Frankly, you would think the Philadelphia Eagles stunk out loud by the way fans boo. Eagles fans boo winners, they boo losers and they have even booed Santa Claus.
Few things would be farther from the truth, the Eagles have made the playoffs nine of the past 11 seasons, averaging 10 wins a season in that same time.
I can think of a few teams that would be doing cartwheels in the streets for success like that (that means you, most of the AFC West and NFC West).
So Eagles fans please hear me out. Be grateful for the winning you have. Losing is never as far away as you might like to think. Enjoy the wins when they come.
