All-Time

Sixers - Dr J
Flyers - Bobby Clarke (toothless smile on the sculpture)
Phillies - Mike Schmidt
Eagles - Reggie White


The first three were no brainers IMO but I struggled with the Eagles one. They don't have the best winning history nor a real iconic player except for Reggie.

Personal

Sixers - Iguodala / Dr J
Flyers - Giroux / Hextall
Phillies - Jimmy / Kruk
Eagles - Shady / Duce

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

depends on how you're judging it.  if it's what they contributed over their career it would be rollins...if it's watching one person play at any point in their career then I enjoy watching Halladay pitch probably more than any other phillies player.  not old enough to remember watching anyone from the 80s teams, so it's pretty much by default someone from this squad, and if you're just weighing at their best who you enjoy watching the most, it would be Halladay, obv not if you're judging the entire career.

Mt. Rushmore

Sixers - Wilt, best player of all time can't not be the Sixers rep even if he played for Warriors and Lakers
Phillies - Schmidt, again best of all time comes into play because he's the best 3b ever
Eagles - Bednarik, i thought about reggie here, but havas makes a point about being elsewhere more than philly.  bednarik is representative of the last championship and everybody knows the pic of him and gifford
Flyers - Clarkie, no explanation needed

Current Favorites:

Eagles - pimp, although there aren't many likeable players on this team.  nobody on defense except maybe cole and he's as vanilla as they come
Flyers - Giroux, loved him in juniors and glad to see him blow up
Phillies - Hamels, 08 NLCS, WS MVP, brought the city a title.  always remember the shot of him bearing down during game 5 part 1 in the rain
Sixers - Jeru although ET might creep up there if he keeps playing well. 


All Time Favories

Sixers - Barkley with AI a close 2nd
Phillies - Dutch Dalton, loved that 93 team and he was the leader, played catcher as i grew up because of him
Eagles - Dawkins, this was my toughest choice, i considered Randall and Reggie but Dawkins was the best defensive player they had in my formidable years of watching the team
Flyers - Hextall, loved the brawls, the crazy saves and the intensity

yeah I dunno, I just sort of went by how I enjoy watching the most.  Rollins has been my favorite Phillie for years but I love watching Halladay pitch. 

With the Flyers I like Briere because dude always mans up in the playoffs.

This Eagles team is ridiculously unlikeable.  With every other team I was picking between players I like whereas with the Eagles it was hard just to come up with a few, but shady is pretty far and away my favorite.

yeah i mean i like anyone who helps my teams win...but i just dont feel a kinship towards halladay or lee like i do a jimmy choke or grit who grew up in the organization and are "real" phillies imo....if what heidi says about loving philly and wanting to stay is true and he resigns long term then ill put him in that group as well...despite his feathered hair
