Two Lazy Super Bowl LII Story Lines
Posted by Sam on January 23, 2018
Philadelphia sports fans are the worst!
Give it a rest. This narrative that Philly fans are the scum of the earth is so old and tired. Snowballs at Santa Claus was 50 fucking years ago yet every media outlet brings it up on an annual basis.
Vikings Fans complained after last weekend’s game about how poorly they were treated.
- Are Philly fans a bit more arrogant and full of themselves? Probably.
- Are there some bad apples in Philly? Of course.
- Are there more bad apples in Philly than your average sports city? Maybe (show me the data please).
But you’re kidding yourself if you think these stories are exclusive to Philly. The stereotype of Philly fans makes the media want to report these more than other cities (guessing, but I do believe that).
With all of that said – I hate ALL sports fans who throw beer cans, verbally or physically attack opposing teams / fans, or anything of that sort; Philly included. Celebrate your wins, celebrate home field, but don’t be an asshole.
Brady and Belichick are cheaters!
With the Super Bowl rematch looming, some Philly fans are quick to point out that the Eagles were “cheated” out of their last Super Bowl against the Patriots. Similar to the above, this is old and tired.
If Spygate made such a difference then explain how Brady / Belichick have made 7 straight AFC championships and 4 more Super Bowls a decade later.
If Brady had such an advantage throwing deflated balls, then explain how he managed to go 28 TDs to 2 INTs the following year in just 12 games, and 32 TDs and 8 INTs this year (while also likely winnings the MVP).
How much more does Brady have to do to prove he’s the GOAT and that cheating has nothing to do with it?
They’ve been DOMINANT for almost 20 years. Do you know how much the league has changed during that time? These two adapt to new players, new systems, and new rules, better than any other team in the league.
Yes I believe that they push the envelop, but you’re delusional if you think the 31 other teams in the league aren’t doing similar things, and that their 5 Super Bowls and .779 win % are because they’re cheating.
