Quote of the Day

"About the cheering/booing: It did happen. It wasn't everyone in the crowd, and it wasn't a majority of everyone, but an audible minority of the crowd did boo when Garcia stayed in the game. The people who are going all Zapruder film on the subject, claiming it was a reaction to the dastardly hit on Garcia that was being replayed on the video boards, are kidding themselves. It happened and it was lousy. This is a tough town, and that was too tough, and, well, deal with it."
-Rich Hofmann, in the Philly Daily News, about last week's incident in which eager-for-A.J.-Feeley fans allegedly cheered when Jeff Garcia got hurt and booed when he stayed in the game. I was there, but I honestly couldn't tell you whether the booing really happened that way. They were booing so much that night in a victory, mind you that it was hard to tell what was for what. I mean, they even booed the weatherman. Posted by Stephen Silver at December 8, 2006 02:12 PM

I caught Hofmann on Daily News Live one night this week, and he talked about something similar. His point that night was, "OK, fine, no booing... then what about the cheering when Feeley put his helmet on?"

I like Rich's stuff, he seems pretty level headed.
