Adam Reigner, producer at WIP, is spitting fire over Jason Avant’s comments. Oh yeah, he’s not back on the bandwagon yet, either. This is his weekly rant.
So, Jason Avant doesn’t want me back on the bandwagon.
That’s cool, it’s not the first time I’ve been rejected.
It’s not a popular opinion, but I actually agree with him in one regard. This city is a front running city– just like every other city in America. When the Sixers were making runs with Iverson you couldn’t buy a ticket. When the Phillies considered themselves a small market team they gave away tickets with hot dogs. There is absolutely nothing wrong with not showing up to a losing product. As a matter of fact, it’s actually your duty as a fan to do as such. The only way to make the owners change is to influence their bottom line.
So it may not make you happy as a player in this city, but it is exactly what a fan is supposed to do. Could you imagine if we rewarded lousy play or terrible execution? You expect more from yourself and so do we. When we ride you– man up.
I will, though, defend anybody’s right to give their opinion, and Avant is no different.
I am the fan he was talking about. I have actively rooted for whomever the Eagles were playing against since the Birds started 1-4 (really). You think a two-game win streak against a terrible Redskins team and a Cowboys team that trots out Tony Romo every week is going to change my mind?
