Eagles' fans ethics no better than SanFran managment

Posted July 12, 2013

 I've always bled green. But I still found time to be a 9ers and Dolphins fan. After SF did to Joe Montana, George Siefert, and finally, Jerry Rice, I no longer found time to be a fan of such a soulless establishment. 

 Which brings me to my point. I'll concede that Andy Reid had a spectacularly terrible season his last year with us. However, his son DIED mere yards away from him, even as he worked. What did he do? Did he bail on his team? No. Did he sit that season out? I'm sure even his harshest critics would have managed a conciliatory nod at the notion. No. He didn't.

    I won't say the Eagles management betrayed him, because, for all we know, he could have wanted to leave. But the fans did. For those of you who laughed when he was up there and enjoyed the feeling of being on the winning side ( for the first time since the 1940's, I might add), you should be ASHAMED at how you sit there and condemn him for giving all he had, and not having any more to give when he was in his own personal hell. How many of you have children? How many of you count losing one of them as one of your greatest fears? What happened to loyalty? Compassion? This birdfan will always be grateful for the gift that was Andy's regime.....
