A south Philly little league baseball game is a more intriguing story than Ed Rendell interviewing Andy Reid. Both men are wizards when it comes to answering a question without answering a question; so how could that possibly be an informative interview? How is that FRONT PAGE OF SPORTS SECTION!?!
The most inebriated Eagles fan is just as knowledgeable as Ed Rendell on CSN’s Eagles Post Game Live. Since 1998 fans had to listen to Ed Rendell’s mindless thoughts on the Eagles, when is it going to end? He’s no longer a Governor or a Mayor. Can’t he just go away? Rendell isn’t a fan, he is a politician. He even takes a politicians’ stance when rooting for his teams. Rendell was all for booing McNabb in the draft, but when that went south what did Rendell do? What any political man would do, he flipped-flopped.
Rendell told Eagles fans they would rue the day McNabb left. Yeah Ed, the Eagles would have been way better off last season had they had McNabb and his 14 Touchdown passes and 15 interceptions. Rendell was 1000% wrong about the drafting of McNabb, and the Eagles trading of McNabb. Yet, the Daily News selects him to “represent” the fans and interview Andy Reid?
Is there a poll somewhere that involved Eagles fans saying they want more Rendell? Rendell knows less than the average fan yet Comcast and now the Daily News keep shoving his thoughts down our throat. The only way the fans want “Ed’s view from the stands” is if he actually is giving us his front row end zone seats.
If the Daily News wants a fan’s view from the stands, get that crazy drunk guy that started screaming at Comcast Sports Net’s camera after the Eagles 2003 NFC Championship loss to Carolina. He represented the average fan’s feelings in that moment way better than Rendell ever did.
All Rendell does is tell the fans what he thinks they want to hear. The act is old and played out. On behalf of all fans, WE ARE SICK OF IT! Take Ed, off of post game live and replace him with a guy who dedicated his life to the sport of football, NOT politics, instead of catering to the ego of Ed Rendell.
If the Daily News wants a view from the stands take a high school kid or college kid aspiring to be a journalist and give them the chance to sit down with Andy Reid, who knows they might ask him a question that fans may actually want to know!
Rendell does deserve some credit; he does actually sit in the stands. He does not hide in the club box. It is ok that Rendell roots for the teams to do well, but can’t he just keep it to himself? The fans do not need to see him every Sunday on pre and post game live shows. Rendell is an expert in politics not sports. It would be one thing if he was a guest here and there, but with Rendell it is constant and too much.
