PHILLY’S NFL DRAFT, GREATEST OF ALL-TIME, DISSED BY DELCO DOPE!

Jack McCaffery of the Delaware County Times:

Because the NFL Draft was in Philadelphia, and because the league has managed to make it a three-day TV show, the producers needed all the standard background shots. So it would be. There would be cuts to rowers on the Schuylkill, a short-order cook chopping cheesesteak meat and the William Penn statue. Of course, better they should skip a shot of the Liberty Bell than to pass on the caricature of Philadelphia fans booing.

So with the commissioner at the podium begging them to heckle, and with him later encouraging former Dallas receiver Drew Pearson to remind them that the Cowboys, not the Eagles, have been Super Bowl champions, the show was on. Sadly, Eagles fans complied. They booed Roger Goodell every time he appeared, booed every mention of the word Dallas, booed every pick by both New York teams. They didn’t even mix in a good hiss.
