    Former players, current players, the opposition. Philly fans dislike everyone!

    Rolen whined constantly about wanting to play elsewhere and when he was dealt to St. Louis, his quote was that 'he was in heaven'. He was standoffish with the fans, whined about the stadium, about the team not spending money (he had a point here), but had he stuck around, he would have been part of this mini-dynasty that the Phils have built. He basically made it known that he hated Philly and didn't want to be here.

    Also remember, Mike Schmidt was booed a lot in Philly.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    The Philadelphia fans (I think the Eagles) booed Santa Claus during a game several years ago. For what it's worth, at least they can say they wear their passions on their sleeve.

    If I didn't love Rolen already, I sure love him now.

    youre right and heres the proof

    Philly fans are by far the worst in all sports.
    1) throwing snowballs at santa
    2) '01 Flyers fan attacking Tie Domi in the penalty box
    3) '97 Throwing DD batteries at JD Drew
    4) (every week) some jagbag runs out on the field
    5) Throwing up on an 11yr old girl rooting for the opposing team
    6) Michael Irving suffers a career ending injury.... Eagles fans cheer.
    7) '89 Back judge Al Jury was knocked down after being pelted with snowballs.

    seriously, Im surprised they didnt bring over the jail, court and judge from the old stadium.

    Re: Why do Phillies fans not like Rolen?

    If you hadn't realized this by now, it's going to get quite obvious as we go through this series: Philly fans are the scum of the earth.

    They are uneducated, drunk, loud, and obnoxious. This is why I root against Philly in every sport.

    As a Red fan, I feel lucky to not be exposed to their garbage more than twice a year.
