Having lived in Philly, I never wore another team's jersey simply out of fear. I've seen people attacked there before for that on the street (West Philly represent). I love the city, but it's not a safe city in the first place. That's probably the main reason. A dangerous city + known rough history = not a good idea to wear your jersey outside the stadium. Put it in your car and walk around without it. Why risk injury?

And for the record, I LOVE Philly. Give me Philly over NYC any day. But a lot of their fans take their sports way, way too seriously. To the point where you can get severely injured.
