Hey, I remember the days when Howard Cosell stirred up the same sort of "passions."

But it could be worse I suppose: Imagine if Merrill Hoge had been proposed? That would have triggered the most famous boycott in Philadelphia since then-mayor Frank Rizzo asked Philadelphians not to buy SOS soap pads in reaction to a commercial they ran in 1972 which contained a disparaging reference to the city.
