Let's clear this misnomer up:
No one was jealous of Fireman Ed. I think I speak for most people when I say we don't aspire to grow up to be a mascot. And jealous of what? The fact that he was on TV? The fact that he could spell a four-letter word? It's not like he did something that special to be jealous of.
If you ask me the root-cause of the reason that most fans disliked Fireman Ed, I can answer that.
