Philly is a great sports town.
Yeah, just because Philly fans are tough and rude and angry doesn't mean Philly is a bad sports town. There's lots of passion for their teams, no way is it a bad sports town. From what I can tell, some place in Florida would have to qualify as the worst.
I'm not from Philly, but from what I have seen I would hate to be a pro athlete there. I am from St. Louis and the two cities seem to be polar opposites. It just seems as if fans in Philly are way to harsh and judgemental. I get the feeling that fans almost prefer to root against their teams than for them. The fans in Philly are the quickest to turn against their own team and start booing them. From a sportsmanship perspective, Philly has to be the worst.
The worst sports town would have to be Miami. I lived there for some years and would have to say the situation there is miserable. Fans only care to follow their teams when they are winning. It is unbelievable. The Marlins have had poor attendance since they started, except for a few months in '97 and '03. The Dolphins' games are regularly blacked out because no one goes to the games, and the Heat needed to bring Shaq in to draw interest, even after a new arena had been built.

Being from New York and now living in Philly I used to hate them but now I actually understand why they are so die-hard. Calling Philadelphia a bad sports town is fairly ignorant. Now Atlanta on the other hand is terrible. If you can't sell out playoff games for the Braves you dont deserve a team.

Also, don't forget about the Devils. Another pathetic showing by NJ residents. Although the Devils fans that do exist are as diehard and hardcore as anywhere else.
But in defense of North Jersey, you also have the Giants. Go Big Blue.
