Dom Brown being a Cowboys fan is not new so it should've been expected that this would come to a head yesterday at Lincoln Financial Field. That is what it is and he took a beating on social media for his open trolling of Eagles fans. Fine. I get that.
What I don't understand is his response to an Eagles fan who tells him that Philly loves him.
Correct me if I'm wrong on that one.
I'm not sure what Brown is talking about but I don't think it was his smartest move. As much as we want our athletes to be adopted Philadelphians and root for the other teams in the city, part of me respects Brown for staying a Dallas fan. I don't like the Cowboys and I would rather him be an Eagles fan but, if I were in his shoes and I was playing baseball in Texas, I wouldn't shy away from being an Eagles fan.
But saying "Philly doesn't love me" (unless he is kidding) is something I can't really defend.
