Pacers Players and Pistons Fans Get Into Brawl

I'm so glad this didn't happen in Philly. If it did, you would never, ever hear the end of it. Philly is sometimes mentioned in articles about bad fans even if they had nothing to do with the incident. And despite the numerous incidents in New York, Cleveland, etc. over the years, Philly is always the red-headed step-child.

My theory on why the media overdoes bad fans in Philly is because the media is based out of New York. If the same behavior occured in New York, which it sometimes does, you wouldn't hear anything mentioned over and over again.

That's not to say that this behavior is acceptable. But two batteries being thrown at J.D. Drew does not mean 60,000 fans were out to burn him at the stake.
