Yes, he play the part quite well. The problem is it seems our 'booing' appears to help him perform.
True, I'm not sure why Cardinals fans take it so personally. I liken this (as does Tim McKernan on his insidestl.com website post) to a WWE villain. As long as there is no harm (obviously last fall, the brawl, the end of Larue's career, etc. was overboard), it's kind of fun. People like Phillips thrive off of that, they're in the zone. The best 'bad guys' have always been that way. I read his tweets the other day and laughed, especially at the Lunchable one. It didn't stop me from posting a Facebook status about someone packing him a Lunchable for his trip back to Cincy, but it's good natured fun. He's a WWE Heel right now. He's Hulk Hogan switching to the NWO. It adds a layer to it all, makes it more interesting. And as long as we win, I don't care what Phillips' stats are.
