Putting An XFL Team In Philly Seems Like The Definition Of Entrapment

Entrapment (n.) - The action of tricking someone into committing a crime in order to secure their prosecution. 

Listen. There's never been a better time to be a lawyer in the city of Philadelphia than right now because business is about to be BOOMING once the XFL comes to Philadelphia. You put an XFL team in Philly and you're about to shatter the world record for most people getting arrested in a single location. It's inevitable. 

I know the stereotype of Philly fans gets overblown at times, and I know we're all sick of hearing about it. But the XFL? I mean I guess it's closer to actual football than it was before but it's still not real football. It's still like going to a minor league game. So you give Philly fans some cheap tickets with cheap beer prices at a game that ultimately doesn't matter because nobody is emotionally invested in the team? You're asking for ultimate chaos. 

And in some ways I think this would actually be great and could benefit the overall perception of Philly fans around the rest of the leagues. It would almost be like the purge. Everybody just gets to revert into the absolute worst version of themselves at the XFL games and then by the time the Eagles/Sixers/Flyers season rolls around, it'll be out of your system. I'm not saying you should go out of your way to punch a police horse at an XFL game or anything but I think it would get significantly less attention there than it would during the NFC Championship tailgate, ya know? Just something to think about. But yeah, it seems like the league is just setting the city up for everyone to get arrested at an XFL tailgate and I'll see everybody there at our court date. 

Sidenote: Remember when there was professional roller hockey in Philly? Bring back the Bulldogs.
