I know, I know... It's Phils v Yank/ Angels in a few days. However...

Hoy put up a post yesterday with some sites he trolled from the Dodgers and the Mets talking about the Phils dominant win against the Dodgers in this years NLCS. I laughed very hard reading the Mets board.

Some of the things posted on there is hysterical. Go read. I promise you won't be disappointed. Talk about people having an inferiority complex. Um, no... We don't talk shit about the Mets. Anymore than they "talk shit on us".

Apparently they just don't get it. Mets fans that is. I'm looking at you Dawn Summers!!! (and I LOVE IT!!)

Here are some hard facts about the Mets and Phils. I got this little post off of the Riverchasers site after I posted the link to the Mets forum. Even in Philadelphia there are Mets fans who we just love to pick on. Especially now.


Yes, the Phillies have had long painful slumps as a team but so have the Mets. One thing mentioned often on that Mets forum is that Mets fans didn't really worry much about the Phillies till recently. That shows the age range of most of the posters as 20 somethings.

Yes the Phillies sucked in the late 90s, but so did the Mets for the most part (except for 99, & 2000) The Braves ruled that time period.

So... Facts (just from 1962 on) toss out our 2 other NL championships in 1915 and 1950

Playoff appearances:
Mets 7 (69, 73, 86, 88, 99, 00, 06)
Phils 10 (76, 77, 78, 80, 81, 83, 93, 07, 08, 09)

NL East Titles:
Mets 5 (69, 73, 86, 88, 06)
Phils 9.5 (76, 77, 78, 80, 83, 93, 07, 08, 09) the half is 81 phils won 1st half of a split season

Wild Cards:
Mets 2 (99, 00)
Phils 0 (we dont do second best) ok, ok, a little shot :)

NL Championships
Mets 4 (69, 73, 86, 00)
Phils 5 (80, 83, 93, 08, 09)

World Series Champs:
Mets 2 (69, 86)
Phils 2 (80, 08)

Gee it looks like the Phils look back at the Mets slightly more than they look back at us.

My point for posting all of these facts is for those Mets fans who speak so highly of their own teams dominance and how it should be them every time the Phils are doing well. If for any other reason than they are so much more dominant of a ball club than the Phils. I think the numbers above prove that thinking that way is just pure ignorance. But that should be expected I guess... from a Mets fan :)

Well said, Riggs. Honestly we have fun ragging on the Mets but only because their franchise sucks absolute horsecock right now. I've never seen a team have such an inferiority complex about another team like the Mets and their fans have about the Phillies. I cannot count how many complaints I've heard or read this week about how we "talked shit on the Mets players" like two years ago before the season started.

When the Mets and Mets fans can finally purge all this vaginality from their franchise, maybe they can start being good again.

I actually used to like the Mets until a colleague from a business I owned in North Jersey started coming to Phils games with me, and I to Mets games with him.

A very intelligent, happy guy. Until we started going to games.

That's when I started to hate the mets. I never heard anyone whine like that in my life.

Way to kick a franchise when it's down. Can't wait for Mcnabb to choke in the post season AGAIN. See what you talk about then!
