Allen Iverson posts his love for Cowboys on Instagram

Sit down if you're reading this, Philadelphia.

You will see images that may be disturbing.

This city will forever and always love Allen Iverson. But when "The Answer" started posting on his Instagram account Monday night, that love probably flickered a bit.

Here's what the Sixers' legend admitted ...

We dem boyz!!!

If Philly didn't know about Iverson's Cowboys fandom, it does now.

A.I. has made it known before, though, that he loves Dallas. This isn't really news.

Just watch this video from inside his house.

Merry Christmas!!!

Still, the pictures have to sting. Iverson in a Cowboys jersey feels wrong. You probably feel like this right now.

But let's be real: Iverson isn't the first Philadelphia athlete to like teams outside the city.

Sometimes we forget these athletes aren't from here like the fans.

Drew Pearson has tremendous response for booing Eagles fans at NFL draft

As much as you might hate Drew Pearson, one of the Cowboys' all-time great receivers, you've got to give him credit for this.

Roger Goodell tried to have some fun with the Philly fans, who booed him mightily (so mightily it was expressed over closed captioning) when he took the stage at the start of Rounds 1 and 2 of the NFL draft.

But he paled in comparison to Pearson, who was ready for the awesomely rude reception. 

"All right. How about dem Cowboys!" he said. "I want to thank the Eagle fans for allowing me to have a career in the NFL. Thank you.

"I am honored as an undrafted free agent to be selected to make the Cowboys' second-round draft pick ... 

Raises his voice ...

"... and on behalf of the five-time World Champion Dallas Cowboys, Hall of Fame owner Jerry Jones, Gene Jones and the Jones family, coach Jason Garrett, all the Cowboys players that played before me, that played with me and played after me. 

 

Raises his voice ...

"With the 60th pick in the second round, the Dallas Cowboys select defensive back from Colorado Chidobe Awuzie." 

Fittingly, it's a corner the Eagles could have used.

A three-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro, Pearson spent all 11 of his NFL seasons with the Cowboys (1973-83) and won one Super Bowl. He had 72 receptions for 950 yards and five touchdowns in 20 career games — 15 of them wins — against the Eagles. He actually compiled more yardage and touchdown receptions against each of the other NFC East teams (Redskins, Giants and Cardinals) than the Eagles.

Here's the viewpoint from inside the boos:

New Eagle Sidney Jones deletes an old tweet — bashing Tony Romo

Here’s another NFL draft deleted tweet story, but there’s a twist.

It has become common practice for fans to search deep into the archives of the Internet to see what old tweets they can dig up when a player is recently drafted to their team. A lot of the time, the tweets are regrettable moments from many years ago, but for Sidney Jones, Eagles fans may forgive him for this one.

Moments after Jones was drafted, fans found this tweet from Oct. 2, 2012, one day after the Cowboys lost, 34-18, to the Chicago Bears in a game Tony Romo threw five interceptions.

Eagles fans probably don’t mind this sentiment from their newest cornerback.
