Ive heard of teams being cursed but Cities?

Is there any fable or curse that the public should know about on why it has been 25 years since a Philadelphia team has won a championship?

I think it may come down to the scouting. The Phillies seem to always sign free agents who are past their prime or have had injuries that they've never recovered from. Their farm system is depleted, as is most major league teams. The Eagles don't draft very well and never seem to come up with enough money to sign the better free agents that are available. The Flyers always look good on paper in September but struggle to play beyond April. Hopefully, it will change this year. Regardless of the team's performance, Philadelphia fans are very dedicated to their respective teams and the owners know that and sometimes take advantage of it. I think we deserve better.
