Winning will cure all ill feelings, continued losing will bring out the worst in most of us. That's pretty universal.
I agree completely. While I was a bit disappointed, I was not shocked in this day and age.
The media always blows crap out of proportion. When you read what really happened in Philly with Santa Claus, it is pretty much the same thing. The team was losing bad, a promised halftime show was cancelled, and some dude decided to dress in a bad Santa costume and go on the field. All it took was a few drunk dudes to make the entire city live with that for decades.
I just hate hearing our players say stuff in interviews that they are still chatting about it in the locker room and having doubts about our fanbase. Vandamere was talking about it last night and said it really bummed some of our players out. And that's a shame.
Just like in real life, the actions of a small group of morons ruin it for everyone else.
