Who’s Following Who ….Posted: October 26, 2010 | Author: Phillies Outside | Filed under: Dailies | Tags: bloggers, blogs, Fans, Fox, Giants, MLB, MLBlogs, New York, Philadelphia, phillies, Rangers, ratings, San Francisco, Texas, Yankees |6 Comments
becoming fairly clear as I peruse the blogs of known Yankees and Phillies
bloggers that a clear message is being portrayed. A projection of disdain emanates
from almost all those blogs towards the team that beat the team they supported
in the LCS. There is a continuing lack of restraint in portraying feeling of
contempt towards the respective teams. So it appears most of the Phillies fans
will be rushing to throw their screams and rally towel waving behind the Texas
Rangers, while those Yankee fans will be openly chanting and willing the San
Francisco Giants to be successful.
With there still being another day before the World Series
starts I have to ask, how is Fox attempting to maintain an interest level in
this pending World Series match up, personally I don’t know cause I haven’t
watched Fox or TBS since the Phillies game last Saturday. In addition to blogs
offering some colorful, possibly defaming descriptions of either of the teams or
their players that will participate in the World Series, it seems the other
topic most covered is the lack of ratability this match up is going to give Fox,
it seems that it may be broadcast mostly for the eastern prime time slots, where
the majority of the fans are slowly developing a ‘we don’t care’
attitude, due to the involvement of teams from the west.
Due to a request by ‘kaiserthegreat’
I have updated the disappearing logo image, yes he’s a Giants fan and there
is a chance he just wanted me to show the image with the Phillies faded out, but
quite honestly I don’t give a f***, because lets face it, every now and then you
have to let the insignificant teams win things, plus knowing what it’s like to
get all the way to the World Series and then lose, the Giants fans need to amass
all the glory they can before the Rangers embarrass the hell out of them.
As a disgruntled Phillies fan, I am entitled to be a part of
Phillies fan base that has leapt to the support of the Rangers and therefore the
demise of the Giants, besides I want to see if winning the World Series knocks
Hamilton off his wagon.
Yep. The “significant teams” just happen to be in the big show. Whoops. Root for the wagon!!!
I’m with Jeff. The “insignificant” teams beat the crap out of the Yankees and Phillies.
The request wasn’t so much so that I could see the Phillies logo faded out, but rather that I could see the final two and be stoked that the Giants logo is still in there. Plus I just really like the graphic and the idea you had to make teams disappear throughout the season and I was hoping you’d keep up with it, even if you’re team is out.Sorry you won’t be rooting for the Giants. I can understand the sentiment. I’m not sure if I would have rooted for the Phillies either. On the other hand, as they are probably my second favorite team, I might have.
Jeff- It’s all in the eye of the beholder
Jane- **** happens as they say just happened to our teams this time
Michael- I’m sure you know it’s all meant in good fun:-)
Nope, I’m taking it personal and now you’re on my list. 😉
Michael – uh oh… the list…LOL
