Dave Spadaro – Philadelphia Eagles’ Loyalist and Impresario of Sycophantocracy

Posted in Uncategorized by phillymediasports on September 28, 2009

We all know about Spadaro, Eagles’ apologist and propagandist.  We all know about Spadaro, Eagles’ magic elixir salesman.  We all know about Spadaro, Eagles’ tent revivalist. We all know about Spadaro, weepy Eagles’ grubber.  We all know about Spadaro, clumsy Eagles’ deconstructionist.  But now we know something new about Spadaro:  He’s off his ever lovin’ rocker.

Apparently, for all this time, Spadaro has been a resident of Tweedledeeland, parked in a cul de sac of his own warped inter-planetary hallucinations.  Listen to this.  Today, on WIP, if I heard it right, Spadaro revealed for the first time that he is promoting a change to the Wildcat formation, popularized last year by the Miami Dolphins and adopted and taken to new extremes by Andy Reid this season.  Spadaro, in sophistic fealty to Reid, wants to rename the Wildcat as the EAGLE or EAGLECAT.

Dear Lord.  Spadaro has finally succumbed to the ooze of his syrupy mind.  Still, every crazed idea presents an opportunity to belittle the architect.  And this is such a delectable opportunity.  Therefore, in recognition of Spadaro’s ode to absurdity, let me take the EAGLECAT to its (ill) logical conclusion.  From this time forth, let the following football fouls be known thusly:

from false start to false Eagle

from offensive interference to offensive Eagle

from unnecessary roughness to unnecessary Eagle

from delay of game to delay of Eagle

from grasping a face mask to grasping an Eagle

from illegal forward pass to illegal forward Eagle

from illegal use of hands to illegal use of Eagle

and best for last –

from illegal formation to illegal Eagle.

Talk about the quintessential illegal Eagle.  Oh my dear Spadaro, thank you for the EAGLECAT.  Al Michals, are you listening?

    I don’t even know Spadaro but now I am fairly certain he is a douchebag of the highest order.

    You make some good points about the prima donas in the world of football. Vickis the greatest example; he got away with a lot. If you saw the pictures of what he and his partners in crime did to his dogs you would probably laps into uncontrollable projectile vomiting. Of course, Vick’s welcome in Philly, especially by Eagles fans, reveals a lot about what we American’s are willing to sacrifice, tolerate or turn a blind eye to in order to find an easier route to something that we want.

      Splash – Thanks for writing. As game time approached yesterday, I felt, for the first time, a complete lack of excitement about an Eagles game.
      I still want them to win, but there’s something distasteful about having Vick on the team. I wrote a very short piece about my feelings on Vick
      that I hope you’ll read. I think you might even get a laugh.
