Facts are facts

Dont try to make up excuses as to why the numbers are the way they are.

Philly metro has more than double the people of tampa metro. ITS A FACT

If Tampa is such a great place to live....... their population numbers don't reflect it

Also, better sports in Philly....the Phils did just beat Tampa in the WS.
How is FL crowded, compared to the Philly/New Jersey area.

I hope you don't represent the majority of Tampa residents. I also hope you arent over the age of 18.

Philly doesnt need to grow anymore. It is already a MAJOR city and has 6.4 million people in the metro

How much bigger do you want it to get?

I am not trying to take anything away from Tampa

It is a nice small to medium sized city

I have NEVER seen anyone obsessed with it like you though

Tampa is not one of a kind
