Would Philly Fans Still Be Rooting For The Yellow Jackets?
From the world of what could’ve been, here comes the story of the Frankford Yellow Jackets. The Jackets were the original Philadelphia franchise in the NFL. Due to financial problems, the team went bankrupt shortly into their existence. Later on, the NFL granted a new football franchise to Philadelphia and the Eagles were born.
So, what would’ve happened if the old Frankford Yellow Jackets had not gone broke? There would most likely be no Philadelphia Eagles today. Philadelphia fans would be forced to cheer and jeer what would most likely be called the Philadelphia Yellow Jackets.
Now, that would be odd.
