Not his fault

    What is a mayor if not a scapegoat? Eagles president Joe Banner has issued a three-sentence press release telling residents who are mad at Michael Nutter for the postponement of last night’s game against the Vikings to pretty much get over themselves.

    Banner states: “People are free to have their opinions on whether or not last night’s Eagles game should have been postponed.  That decision was ultimately made by the NFL.  Any criticism of the Mayor, who was not involved in this decision, is completely unfair.”
