Donovan McNabb is set to retire as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday whether you like it or not—and he does not care if you don’t like it.
Heck, boo the man, he won’t mind.
As Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk noted, the retirement as a member of the franchise is going to officially happen Monday:
The Eagles announced Sunday that McNabb will announce his retirement at a press conference on Monday morning at the team’s headquarters. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will join McNabb at the podium for the announcement.
Feel free to show up and boo the man, because he truly doesn’t care(per Mike Florio, PFT):
“I truly wouldn’t care [if they boo],” McNabb tells Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News. ”To me, it’s an appreciation for the people who truly respected what I did. I’ve always lived by the motto that you can’t please everyone. So, for me, if I get booed, it wouldn’t be anything new. If they cheer, that would be great. Obviously I’ll be out there with my family and the teammates I played with. If there are any boos, I will smile.”
So there you have it. McNabb was booed to start his career and probably will be again as he ends it. The man had many accomplishments with the franchise, but simply not enough for the city of Philadelphia.
