And how true. I'll experience it on Monday night when they come down in droves.

The monolithic Eagle fan base. And no other fans do anything remotely similar... Santa meet snowballs.

I never claimed that, but in my experience attending NFL games, I've only seen violent behavior occur at Eagles games (whether in Philly or when their fans visit FedEx). When the Redskins play the Giants or Cowboys here, you rarely see fights break out even though there is good number of Giants/Cowboys fans in the crowd.

The point remains - Philly fans have a reputation (earned or not - for Eagles fans, I think it's earned), so don't necessarily expect love to flow their way.

The Philly fan "element" is surely exaggerated, but it didn't come out of nowhere.

Not all Red Sox fans are "inferiority complex having douche bags" but that stereotype exists for a reason. It's accurate for a great number of them.

I don't even know what to think of Red Sox fans, since seemingly 2/3 weren't fans of the team until this decade.

Just wait until the Phillie and Yankee "elements" collide.

Meh. Any such 'elements' will be priced out (particularly at Yankee Stadium). Besides, like I said, CBP already has a pleasant atmosphere/element.

I can't even imagine a Mets fan watching this series. Who would they cheer for?

Re: Yankees VS Phillies Official WS Thread

If it does indeed become the Phils vs. the Yankees, I'm not sure who I'll pull for...as it was mentioned, I'm one who would usually go for the underdog, but in this case you have 2 teams with all kinds of recent success. I'll probably cheer for some 4 1/2 hour games ending in the wee hours of the morning, more bad umpiring and a Yankee sweep since each of these will continue to draw attention to the areas which MLB needs to fix.

I haven't been to either, but I actually like the Phillies whereas I'd root for the Patriots over the Eagles. The fanbases between the two sports seem completely different.

I'm a Mets fan, but I never really understood the "Yankee hater" (or "Met hater," on the other side) mentality. I'm mostly indifferent towards the Yanks-- they're not my time, so why should I care? But it is my city, so I do like the energy of the Series being here, but whether they win or lose doesn't affect me at all. I'm certainly not going to root for the Phillies-- I can't ever see any fan rooting in the Series for the divisional champion that beat your team in the regular season (no matter who they're playing against).

Mets fans do have something to look forward to if the Yanks win the Series (IF they're in it, ofcourse. How soon some of us forget 2004). If the Yanks win, I won't have to hear 5 months of Yankees fans pissing and moaning about not winning.... again. Shit, we Mets fans know that our team sucks. If it's one thing we don't have as Mets fans, it's that feeling of our team being entitled to the championship every year.

Re: Yankees VS Phillies Official WS Thread

article on ESPN that MLB is only going to put veteran umps in the WS after all the blown calls in the ALCS/NLCS. good move, imho. sure veteran umps still blow calls, but they seem to be few and far between.

But a veteran ump blew two of the calls in game 4. It doesn't make much sense what's going on with the bad umpiring.

overall, if you look at the blown calls throughout the series, they've mostly been from newer umps, not experienced umpires. again, not saying the experienced ones don't blow calls, but the frequency is less according to mlb.

True it really isn't and there isn't anything in those videos that is all that bad.
there wasn't a riot and apparently no one really got hurt.

One funny thing I saw on the news was a huge mosh pit at a big intersection in Philly.
the worst thing happening was people crashing into each other on purpose, not fighting or even a threat of a fight.
The female anchor on the broadcast was threatening that even the police use their video and all these people who are fighting will eventually be caught and arrested because of their video showing the fighting.

then the other on air guy told her that it wasn't a fight but something like a huge mosh pit of people intentionally jumping into each other with no fighting at all.

She quickly moved away from the discussion.


also I don't know what the middle video is because it doesn't work.

There's an old saying....."act like you've been there." Food for thought for fans of the defending champions, particularly with 4 more wins necessary.

I wasn't out there running around but anytime a Philly team has this success at this point in a season I'm going to enjoy it all the way.
truth is other then last year we haven't been there all that much so
I won't apologize for excessive behavior.

Was there a thread back in 2004, Yankees vs Cardinals Official WS Thread?

At this point this is the best they can do anyway. Yeah, it was McLeland, one of the most experienced umps they have that made the biggest blown calls but in a pinch they're the ones you need to trust.
