While talking to the media on Thursday, Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel pretty much demanded that Eagles fans cheer for him when he returns to Philly on Sunday.
“They better cheer for me,” Samuel said, via ProFootballTalk.com. “They’re going to cheer for me or we’re going to have a problem right there in Lincoln Financial Stadium. All y’all fans, all I did for y’all, y’all better cheer for me.”
Samuel expects the Philly faithful to be happy to see him.
“It’s not any game, I’m going back home,” Samuel said. “It’ll be exciting. They’ll be happy to see me. Everybody gonna cheer for me.”
I could end up being wrong, but a part of me doubts he’ll get a warm reception.
