What are the horrible incidents that happened in KC? I'm not calling the Bonds booing in Phillie a horrible incident, but I can't recall anything that has happened in KC that even approaches cheering Michael Irvin when he is injured, booing Mike Schmidt for playing below HoF level, booing the hometown Kobe Bryant at an All-Star Game, throwing batteries at any player, or needing a courthouse inside a stadium to handle all the problems that happen.
As far as the ineptitude of the teams being an excuse for the fans, there are plenty of other cities that have the same type of circumstances. I guess Phillie fans enjoy just writing the way fans in those cities react as them just not being as "passionate" for the game as they are. *shrug*
