What kind of reception do you think he'll receive tonight? How will the fans react to his first catch?
Are they viewing him as a villian?

I don't really consider the people who attend games at any sport representative of the larger fanbase anymore. Not even the Flyers. It's a shame that the fanbase has been so taken over by bandwagon, casual fans but it is what it is.

I'm sure he'll get booed. "Fans" these days don't have the balls to think for themselves, and they'll be expected to boo him just because it's the PC thing to do. I'm not saying they shouldn't but I'm saying that I don't consider these "fans" to be in the same league as the real fans who watch and go to games no matter what the record is or how many losing seasons in a row there were.

I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Riley Cooper, but I'm 100% fine with real fans booing a player on the team they don't like. I am curious about how much people will care about this thing, though. The whole story is like 85% media hype.

Glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. Anymore when media people talk about "whether or not something will 'blow over'", you know they're hoping it won't. Anything a story, drama, and more importantly ratings

Exactly.

Seriously, an out-of-context 5 second phone video containing a bad word muttered by a drunk 22 (or whatever) year old should not be national news.
...And yet.

... yet ESPN analyst Hugh Douglass went on a rant using the N word against his Co-Host Michael Smith the other day and that hasn't really become too much of a news story....

Hugh Douglass is on ESPN now? Damn, I never thought he'd go to such a fake network.

Outside of the make-everything-focused-on-race opinions of the national media and Philly.com columnists, the majority of regular Eagles fans who I've talked to about this, black and white, have said "it was a drunk guy at a concert who said something dumb in the heat of the moment - lets move on." I wouldn't expect him to get too much reaction either way. Maybe some boos here and there at the most
