Rollins to clarify comments on TV tonight


Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins will try again on the "Best Damn Sports Show. Period."

Fox Sports Net announced that Rollins will return to the show tonight in an effort to follow up on the remarks he made yesterday about Philadelphia fans.

You might have heard that asked whether Philadelphia was as tough a place to play as the national media sometimes portrays, Rollins answered:

“There are times,” he said. “I might catch some flak for saying this, but, you know, they’re front-runners. When you’re doing good, they’re on your side. When you’re doing bad, they’re completely against you.”

Rollins then mentioned the hometown of teammate, and fellow show guest, Ryan Howard as a differently wired fan base.

“For example, Ryan is from St. Louis and St. Louis, it seems like they support their team, they’re out there and encouraging. In Philly, can’t be no punk.”
