Brian Dawkins schools Phillies prospects on how to handle boos

A group of Phillies prospects was in town this week for the organization’s annual prospects education seminar.

One of those lessons came from a legend.

Brian Dawkins, the most motivational athlete this city has ever seen, shared with the group his thoughts on playing in Philadelphia and responding to the passionate fan base.

“Playing in Philadelphia is different,” Dawkins said. “If you get on the field, there is a 99.99 percent chance you will be booed. The thing I always knew though was that you may boo me that one time but I’m not gonna make the same mistake again.”

Sometimes, the jokes write themselves…..

Isn't it a breach of confidentiality to write about AA players meeting to talk about handling boos?

Not an Eagles fan, but I doubt Brian Dawkins got booed much. Maybe the defensive unit got booed, but Dawkins was one of the most intense, and best, players at his position during his career. I remember him knocking much larger players out of the game with clean hits.

RIP deadspin:
The Philadelphia Eagles unveiled their Super Bowl banner tonight. Thirty minutes of game action later, Philadelphia fans booed the team off the field.

"Anyone here named Burns? That would help a lot, actually."
