PFT PLANET SKEWS THE EAGLES POLL

When we posted at 3:10 p.m. EST our item about the Eagles poll regarding whether the team should sign T.O., 9,625 people had voted — and 62.9 percent of them had said “no.”
In an update to the story, we suggested that we should all vote “yes,” in the spirit of Mitch Berger being named the Super Bowl MVP.
As of 3:47 p.m., a total of 20,170 votes have been cast.  And “yes” now has 64.3 percent of the vote. 
Based on my once strong but now poor math skills, this means that 10,545 votes were cast in the intervening 37 minutes — and that 9,399 of them were “yes.”
It’s a rate of 89.1 percent “yes,” and 10.9 percent “no.”
Very impressive, PFT Planet.  Please remember to buy a Sprint phone.  And not to buy my book.
UPDATE:  As of 3:57 p.m. EST, it’s now 76.5 percent “yes,” with more than 32,000 total votes.  I hope they feed their hamsters well.

    It’s up to 76.5 percent, per my “yes” vote as of 15:56 EST.

    LOL!
    Couldn’t the BiQueens have a poll like this??
    I´d love to see T.O. send that semi-pink franchise locker room to ashes!

    With the Eagles just trading G-Blew to the Pats, a roster space is open…..

  4. Nate A says: Mar 5, 2009 3:58 PM

    hurray for gits and shiggles!!

  5. PhillyPhan610 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:00 PM

    Florio, how much is sprint paying you to plug them in every 5 posts? I will double it for you to shut the he11 up about Sprint…

  6. Mike D says: Mar 5, 2009 4:01 PM

    I just voted and it was 76% yes and 24% no.
    Clearly, Florio has leap-frogged Rupert Murdoch as the world’s most powerful media figure.

    I think its pretty safe to say that you wont have any problem with me not buying your book. Sorry. :D
    Why don’t you do something useful with your time and try to find out if the Vikings are planning to win some football games this year. Maybe ask someone with knowledge about any free-agents interests besides Chris Carr. THANKS!…

  8. Rivers2Gates says: Mar 5, 2009 4:04 PM

    Ahahahahahaha! stuff like this is why I love pft. Good work Florio. The Eagles and their hamsters have been debacled.

  9. tizztone says: Mar 5, 2009 4:04 PM

    With Greg Lewis gone, that’s one less person I hate in the Eagles organization…

  10. vinny cerrato says: Mar 5, 2009 4:05 PM

    freakin florio and his hamster talk….

  11. marylandelphia mouse says: Mar 5, 2009 4:05 PM

    yea because THIS is mature.
    ps: keep giving the website hits.

  12. theultimateweapon says: Mar 5, 2009 4:08 PM

    I dunno if it was all PFT, just to be honest, the two radio stations in town are ALLL over it some saying they should resign him (950 mike missaneli) some obviously siding with the birds due to the fact they are on the pay role (610 Howard Eskin).
    Just as an aside i’m a WIP guy until 3pm.
    Dave Spaderro is an embarrassment to “journalism”.

  13. jdalisauski says: Mar 5, 2009 4:08 PM

    Looks like they took it down last time I checked it was 76.4% YES

  14. 4QU2PATS says: Mar 5, 2009 4:08 PM

    Its Gone LMAO

  15. CountSnail says: Mar 5, 2009 4:09 PM

    They took the poll down LOL.

  16. bwnyc says: Mar 5, 2009 4:10 PM

    They just changed the poll.
    PFT Nation > philadelphiaeagles.com
    Mike Florio > Dave Spadaro

  17. DarcsFalcon says: Mar 5, 2009 4:11 PM

    Next poll – how long until the Eagles take the TO poll down?

  18. empty13 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:11 PM

  19. MrElliot says: Mar 5, 2009 4:11 PM

    Florio, not nice to try ton jam the hamster of any business. Legal?
    Anyway, I predicted TO’s suicide (alleged attempt). How sad he is. Greatest work ethic, greatest athlete, and he thinks the world is out to get him. Did you know he was raised by his mom and grandmom without know who his father was? Did you know that when he was 12 or 13, he wasn’t allowed to date the girl across the street? Why? Because it turned out, her dad was his dad too!

  21. Pea Tear Griffin says: Mar 5, 2009 4:12 PM

    Lol, this is great. They actually just took to poll down! They didn’t even put it in the archives, lololol!!!

  22. agflexx says: Mar 5, 2009 4:13 PM

    Wow Florio…with great power comes great responsibility.

  23. jbizzle says: Mar 5, 2009 4:14 PM

    You’re a jackass, Florio. You’re now trying to pull a “Colin Cowherd” on the Eagles website? Too bad not everyone’s site crashes like yours.

  24. crusse4 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:14 PM

    Nooooooooooo! they pulled the poll from the website! interestingly enough its not to be found in the poll archives either. damn you philly! right when we were starting to have some fun…..

  25. jmclarkent says: Mar 5, 2009 4:15 PM

    It looks like they removed it; Don’t ask a question unless you are sure you want the (albiet somewhat doctored) answer?…

  26. bcindiana99 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:15 PM

    And now they took the poll down ruining our reindeer games.

    B.S., it’s 68% no and 32% yes with 35,000 votes.

  29. Terrell Owens says: Mar 5, 2009 4:17 PM

    they changed the poll because of you florio

  30. Humpty Dumpt says: Mar 5, 2009 4:17 PM

    holy crap.
    It’s only 4:15 pm and so far there are TWENTY posts in ONE DAY about T.O.
    Florio, you’re on pace for at least 10 more.
    and everyone thought the Favre drama was beaten to death. At this rate, by the time he actually signs with a new team everyone will be relieved that we won’t have to read every quote by every team official regarding T.O.

  31. vikingcole says: Mar 5, 2009 4:18 PM

    Look at this article by Judd Zulgad of the Startribune about the relationship of Childress and recievers coach Stewart. http://blogs.startribune.com/vikingsblog/?p=2596

  32. 1961vikesguy says: Mar 5, 2009 4:18 PM

    Send to the pack,and watch him explode when the QB chokes up in the 4th quarter

  33. pksmash says: Mar 5, 2009 4:19 PM

    It’s not even in their archives– bastards!
    This is going to be just like the Manny Ramirez deal–
    I don’t think ANYONE wants him.

  34. alewatcher says: Mar 5, 2009 4:19 PM

    Hopefully this is a non-binding referendum ;-) But, that is some funny sh!t.
    BTW, WordPress sucks. I kept getting the “You are posting messages too fast” message.

  35. Mhoobz says: Mar 5, 2009 4:20 PM

    Update: The poll has been removed. Well done, Michael.

  36. bosely says: Mar 5, 2009 4:20 PM

    In the spirit of PFT, I voted other in their latest, replacement poll.

    __________________________________________________________
    Actually no, it’s not legal. If the Eagles saw it as an attack on their business they could go after PFT for an attempted attack to shut their site down.

  38. pksmash says: Mar 5, 2009 4:24 PM

    Watch Jerry take him back– oooops!

    Don’t be an idiot. But alas, the Mpls Trib already has a poll
    since the news broke.
    Maybe the fudge pack could use him??

  40. Greenbird says: Mar 5, 2009 4:32 PM

    What’s next a friggin panty raid ? Talk about pathetic.

  41. chachi smith_ says: Mar 5, 2009 4:36 PM

    looking at iggles poll archives they average about 15,000 votes per poll daily. florio unleashed pft planet and got three times that in 10 minutes
    the webmaster must have had some sweaty hamsters..that sounds awful dont it

  42. NMEagle says: Mar 5, 2009 4:36 PM

    I don’t think this poll will be a true indication of what Eagle fans want. There maybe many people here from teams that would love to see the Eagles break apart then their poor teams may make the playoffs.
    VOTE FOR ME IS “NO”

  43. clemenza says: Mar 5, 2009 4:49 PM

    I THINK THAT BUM JOE BANNER HAD THEM EVEN TAKE IT OUT OF THE ARCIVES BECAUSE BRINGING OWENS BACK WAS WINNING,NO WAY THAT WOULD HAPPEN WITH 2 MOMMA’S BOYS LIKE BANNER AND LURIE IN CHARGE

  44. thefink7873 says: Mar 5, 2009 4:54 PM

    Spadaro is a tool. Eagles have changed their poll. Remember the linebacker depth chart debackle?

  45. MaineMan says: Mar 5, 2009 4:58 PM

    @ VBE —
    This kinda thing has been happening with polls on news sites and political sites for years and it’s been to court. The ruling is, basically, if you’re going to open a poll to the public, be sure you have enough hamsters. If they crap out from the response, tough s**t.
    PS – FYWP.

  46. GiantsFanInBirdsCountry says: Mar 5, 2009 5:30 PM

    Mike Missanelli on ESPN Radio in Philly (950AM) was arguing that TO makes the team BETTER, which, ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD, is true. In the locker room – that’s a different story.
    TO is a playmaker, and would make any team better – ON THE FIELD only!!
