EAGLES CONDUCT T.O. REFERENDUM

Well, the Philadelphia Eagles have come up with an interesting way to generate web traffic.
On their official Internet site, the Eagles have posted a poll asking the following question:  “Do you want the Eagles to sign T.O.?”
Currently, the “no” vote is leading, 62.9 percent to 37.1 percent, based on 9,625 votes.
We think that the poll should have a third possible response — “Is the person who came up with the idea to put this issue to a fan poll high?”
UPDATE:  You know, we should probably all vote “yes,” just for gits and shiggles.

    Add another team to the list of teams that do not want T.O. My office league team, the Ryder Street Ragamuffins, would like to use this forum to declare that we have zero interest in him, even though we really need help at WR.

    “Is the person who came up with the idea to put this issue to a fan poll high?”
    No. He’s just an idiot. His name is Dave Spadaro.

    The 62.9 are out of their mind. They never should have let TO go in the first place. Eagles created the mess by giving TO a contract that wasn’t going to pay him as one of the top 10 receivers in the league and offered no long term security. Eagles went out of their way to protect themselves in case of a problem and it became a self fulfilling prophesy. TO isn’t without blame too, of course.

    Considerring how the Eagles front office has conducted themselves this free agency, I wouldn’t be surprised.
    Idiots.

  5. RobJH says: Mar 5, 2009 3:17 PM

    Why would the person that came up with the web poll have to be high? PFT constantly says controversial things just to generate web traffic. Just look back a few days to the Kurt Warner-hatefest.

  6. Randall Cunningham says: Mar 5, 2009 3:18 PM

    But this poll isn’t controversial; it’s just dumb.

  7. JonS says: Mar 5, 2009 3:19 PM

    That would be your friend Dave Spadaro. I’m sure you remember him? lol

  8. dannydancer says: Mar 5, 2009 3:20 PM

    I would say drunk because that takes balls to post something that dumb. He would be to lazy to do that high.

  9. PhillyRT says: Mar 5, 2009 3:20 PM

    The majority answer to that TO poll will be no, and the Eagles won’t sign him anyway so they’ll try to make it look like they are doing what the fans want.
    How about they throw up a “Do you want Brian Dawkins on the Eagles?” I wonder what the response to that will be.

  10. gorillaghost says: Mar 5, 2009 3:20 PM

    I voted no.

  11. Akshun says: Mar 5, 2009 3:20 PM

    i would LOVE the Eagles to offer him a One Year Contract..

  12. CountSnail says: Mar 5, 2009 3:21 PM

    “Do you want the Eagles to sign T.O.?”
    No. But SOMEBODY would be nice!!

  13. Jbadger says: Mar 5, 2009 3:21 PM

    This is awesome. If the “yes” votes exceed 50%, they should be obliged to sign him.

  14. empty13 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:22 PM

    37.1% of the poll respondents are high.

    Come on dude… Nobody forced T.O. to sign that contract. If he thought he should have been paid more then he shouldnt have signed the deal. The blame is all on T.O. (All three times)

  16. Stoogie says: Mar 5, 2009 3:24 PM

    I voted “Yes” even though I’m not a Eagles fan. I’m more interested in seeing how that train wreck would play out next season, plus the Eagles fans deserve another steamin’ helping of the T.O. circus.
    Remember – Vote early and vote often

  17. gallaghedj311 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:25 PM

    i voted yes. I still have my jersey. Maybe if they sign him, mcnabb will get mad and we can begin the start of the Kolb era! Or whatever QB doesnt vomit in the superbowl….

  18. VBE says: Mar 5, 2009 3:25 PM

    What you probably don’t understand is that on the Eagles message board there is a large contingent of fans that want him back. A lot of posts that call for him to come back.
    So the poll is geared toward the Eagles fanbase based on what happens within the Eagles fanbase.

  19. gallaghedj311 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:27 PM

    I voted one on my PC and once on my laptop. Time to discover how many neighbors on my street have the internet…..

  20. tizztone says: Mar 5, 2009 3:28 PM

    Dave Spadaro, possibly the only person I hate more than Terrell Owens, conducted that poll. Oh, and also everyone in the Eagles front office…and Greg Lewis.

  21. Kevin from Philly says: Mar 5, 2009 3:31 PM

    I agree with empty13 – the people who voted yes are high if they think a yes vote means the Eagles would sign TO. After all this time, anybody who thinks Lurie and Banner give a microcrap about what the fans think is smoking something.

  22. LightsOut56 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:34 PM

    I put in my yes vote. Come on PFT nation, how high can we get this thing? Vote yes!

  23. empty13 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:35 PM

    well i did vote yes. lets see how high we can push it.

  24. HitlerGottfried says: Mar 5, 2009 3:39 PM

    It’s already up to 50/50 now after you posted it.

  25. flyeaglesfly1933 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:42 PM

    I voted yes because i’ll be damned if i watch another season with Kevin Curtis as a #1 WR!!!… besides who the heck else is out there?

  26. LightsOut56 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:42 PM

    Wow, only took about 10 minutes to drive the yes votes from less than 40% to over 60%. Plus the page is loading slower, I think their hamsters are getting a good workout.

  27. theultimateweapon says: Mar 5, 2009 3:42 PM

    UPDATE: the vote has turned around completely after 16,000 votes 58% say yes.

  28. tshizz says: Mar 5, 2009 3:43 PM

    wow it is already at 60% yes

  29. gallaghedj311 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:44 PM

    damn, my neighbors don’t have internet. Wish I was in the office today.

  30. schiver says: Mar 5, 2009 3:45 PM

    I just voted and the “Yes” vote is beating the “No” vote 58.2% to 41.8%.
    And in response to Kevin from Philly… I agree, the front office doesn’t care what the fans want. They’ll probably do the opposite of how this poll turns out, so everyone vote “Yes” so the Eagles don’t sign him.

  31. tshizz says: Mar 5, 2009 3:45 PM

    65% yes already!

  32. Liebowsky says: Mar 5, 2009 3:46 PM

    The yes votes are winning now, way to go Florio!

  33. Dongerman says: Mar 5, 2009 3:47 PM

    Damn Florio, the power of PFT has reversed the percentage of yes/no votes in a matter of a half hour… you should run for president!

  34. bradblah says: Mar 5, 2009 3:48 PM

    The Yes is now up to 67.4% after my vote.

  35. chinny says: Mar 5, 2009 3:50 PM

    hey florio, in non breaking news and earth shattering news, the eagles traded Greg Lewis to the Patriots for undisclosed terms……
    hey its a non – TO story?

  36. bwnyc says: Mar 5, 2009 3:50 PM

    PFT Nation is murdering this poll. It’s presently at 22k+ votes and now 67% yes to re-sign T.O.
    Joe Banner, it appears you have a job to do.

  37. titans_fan says: Mar 5, 2009 3:50 PM

    I got my YES vote placed… great to see that the results have flip-flopped and YES has a solid lead. Would be great to see it hit 90/10 or better.

  38. Non-Euclidean says: Mar 5, 2009 3:51 PM

    Yes – 68.6%
    No – 31.4%

  39. CountSnail says: Mar 5, 2009 3:53 PM

    ROFL Florio you did it already!!!
    Yes- 68.8%
    No- 31.2
    Good to see you are putting your newfound fame to work. ROFL!

  40. TimTheEnchanter says: Mar 5, 2009 3:53 PM

    It’s up to 68% in favor of bringing TO back now, and climbing! I just hit the refresh a few times and the percentage went up every time!
    If we can kill Florio’s hamsters and make his nodes unsuitable, we can certainly turn this into an overwhelming yes vote for TO going back to Philly. The entertainment value alone would be worth it!!!!
    Just checked again after typing this message – it’s up to 68.7% LOL!

  41. BBrophy1 says: Mar 5, 2009 3:53 PM

    69% yes!

  42. schiver says: Mar 5, 2009 3:54 PM

    Never underestimate the power of PFT Planet… current poll results:
    Yes – 72.5%
    No – 27.5%
    Total votes: 27,126

  43. marionthebarbarian says: Mar 5, 2009 3:56 PM

    PFT nation and the power of Florio are strong, 70% yes as of 12:56pm(pacific time).

    In real news, a team source has confirmed that the Eagles have no interest in bringing Terrell Owens back. The poll is still funny though.

    No- 28.6
    Not bad at all LOL!

  50. PhillyPhan610 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:07 PM

    flyeaglesfly1933… Curtis is not our #1…

  51. VBE says: Mar 5, 2009 4:08 PM

    I suppose you all think that voting yes means they’ll sign him, huh?

  52. smfowler says: Mar 5, 2009 4:14 PM

    As of 4:00 its 78 yes, 22 No

  53. TimTheEnchanter says: Mar 5, 2009 4:15 PM

    :( They changed the poll.

  54. GFunk911 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:20 PM

    People who make mistakes need to be taught lessons. It is the only way they’ll learn. Voting 20,000 times was an act of love.
