Why wouldn't you say the city of Philadelphia? The county and city are the same, aren't they?


are we really going to make a big deal about me calling it philadelphia county or city of philadelphia both are correct.

Yes, but people outside the region would have no idea what you are talking about. Heck, a lot of people IN the region would not know what you are talking about since the Philadelphia County is a non-entity. There is no county government.

Just trying to be helpful. When you say something to someone, the idea is to communicate something, not just to make noises with your mouth. So, using terms that the other people understand is a big key to communication.

If someone told to meet them in Kings County, New York, would you know they meant Brooklyn? Most people would not as very few outside New York know that they are the same.

What will you name CSN-Philly, which has the Phillies as a significant minority owner?

I really wish you to include a disclaimer like "I suppose.." or "In my opinion"

Sorry, but you've yet to be correct on anything related to CSN-Philadelphia.

Well, there was an additional link to the meat and potatoes of the rebranding by Mr. Ebersol.

Here is the one outtake that I like:

"The aim is to give viewers everywhere a much better sense of just who we are, wherever they go."


It is not my style to read much into anything.
But if Ebersol will be in charge of NBC Sports without any influence from Brian Roberts, It may be a new day for us.

When is the rebranding supposed to take place?

Considering Comcast calls its service Xfinity, the rebranding makes sense.
