Shoulderpad Sean...The Mayor...I'm sure we can go douchebag for douchebag.

I'm still looking for youtube video from Buffalo, etc. Some things probably happen only in Philly. But you can post the video evidence if you get it, or relate a story if you witnessed it.

Let me go watch the video again and wait for those classy Eagle fans Number 5 is talking about to come in and defend those two 49er fans who were forced to leave the seats they paid for.

*Still watching*

Sorry Number 5, the vast majority of your fan base is trash, maybe the Raiders can lay claim to the same, but that's it. This video proves it. The entire section was enjoying it and not one of these so-called classy fans you're claiming are the majority tried to stop it.

I know for a fact if this happened here in FedEx (which it wouldn't in the first place) some Skins fans (including myself) would've stood between them and the snow telling everyone to stop. There is a limit, and clearly, too many Philly fans have trouble understanding that. It isn't a minority at all, or even half.

This is always a fun time of year. Its the time of year when the Eagles fans start pounding their chests with how good they are and the media jumps on with both feet slurping this championless bunch of pansies. They'll continue to beat up on weaklings, dancing, and showing off while they destroy inferior opponents, talking abou how they are the Gold standard in a division where there are eleven titles and they don't have one of them.

Thsi is the time of the year when everyone will start to think about how scary good they are, and how this is the year they pull it off. This is the time of the year where fans like number 5 will go into other fans boards and kick a team that is laying in the fetal position waiting for its rebuilding process. Because that's what they are. They are bullies. They kick helpless people. They beat up on the weak. They show off and talk smack even though they have NEVER won anything of consequence. But what happens when someone hits them back?

They're fans are just like their team. 50,000 strong they will beat up on children wearing an opponents jersey. They'll get drunk to forget the fact that their entire lives are wrapped up in this franchise that is always second best. They drink to forget. They get belligerent. Their pride, not in their children, or their careers, or their families. . . but in being on ESPN throwing batteries. . or snowballs. . .or having to have a court in their stadium. . . or dragging out a 55 year old Sylvester Stallone to pump up their crowd. Their biggest idol is a fictitous boxer in a movie from the 70's.

Why is this my favorite time of the year? Because it is the beginning. . . and the end is always so much fun! I can't help but wonder what fate will deliver to these losers this year. How will the football gods crush them this year? Some of the past ways seemingly can't be topped but the gods always find a way. After all "Tampa has never won in over 35 degrees". . .remember? . . . "Hell, we are 14 point favorites at home against Carolina". . . . "Hey its the last game at the Vet. . . ", "Finally, the superbowl, . . . is that Donovan throwing up on the game winning drive? " . . . . "Thank God TO is going to play . . . what a warrior!" . . . . "Cmon, guys, its ARIZONA!!" . . . .Personally, I can't wait to see how the gods do it to you guys this year. Tis the season... Someone always eventually stands up to the bully. Thsi year will be no different and personally. . . I can't freakin wait! :eaglesuck

Your a redskins fan. Pipe down and go cheer for a team that can actually make it to the playoffs so they can "hopefully, maybe, fingers crossed" beat the Eagles because I can think of one team that can't. After all it's that time of year.

Nobody has cared about the redskins since Reagan was in office.

Haven't been around these parts in awhile... still see some of the old school posters here - what's up guys... Happy Holidays.

So... I log in here and what do I see - the annual Eagle fan bashing thread. All is right with the world.

I've been in a few of these threads over the years - always fun. For those of you that don't know me - born in Philly, but grew up in Rockville most of my adult life... Bleed Green and a die hard Eagles fan, married to a die hard Skins fans and the majority of my best friends in this world are die hard Skins fans who have had season tix going back many, many decades. So let's not act like I'm just a passive Eagles fan who knows nothing about the Skins fan base. Hell - I may have been at more Redskins games (vs. Philly and vs. many other teams) than many of you posters on this board.

So let me get my .02 cents in real quick.

The Eagles fan base has a bad reputation. Correct.
They have their share of a-holes. Correct.
Every team has their share of a-holes. Correct.
Most stories I hear about a "bad experience" at an Eagles game, especially by Skins fans - USUALLY are second hand stories by somebody who's brother's sister's aunt's boyfriend's little cousin experienced and it's like that game called "telephone". Fan gets the "a hole" chant directed his way at the game - and by the time the story hits the boards - there were gernades going off and 34 redneck Eagles fans all beat up a defensless 6 year old girl. Um - sure.

Here is what I find funny - I've seen ish at both RFK AND FedEx that is easily as bad, if not worse, than ANYTHING I've seen at the Linc and just about as bad as some of the stuff I saw as a kid in the VET in the late 70s early 80s.

I know many Skins fans like to think they are immune as a fan base, and they are so much more upper crust than Eagles fans... hey - if that gets you by year in and year out while your team continues to be a laughing stock - so be it. It's what has kept the reputation going - and frankly - it keeps a lot fans out of Philly's stadiums - so I'm all for it.

Never in my life have I been in a fight at an Eagles game. I have been involved in a fight at RFK though. Go figure - it was a Skins vs. Detroit game that I went to - and the fight was between 2 skins fans. Super - their group got into it with the group I was with and blah, blah, blah.

Skins fan violence on an opposing fan - never would happen, right?

Wrong - http://espn.go.com/p...transcript.html

Long read - so let me highlight some for you -

MARK SCHWARZ, OUTSIDE THE LINES- Ed Allen can't help but wonder what he could have done differently. Surely none of this would have happened had he not rearranged his morning schedule as a personal trainer in order to attend a Monday Night Football game. Surely he could have prevented it had he not stopped on his way from Philly to D.C. to pick up a new Eagles jersey, something to wear proudly at FedEx Field to show Redskins fans where his heart was.

ALLEN- And we just thought, you know, everybody was going to know we were Eagles fans. You know, that was the point.

SCHWARZ- And maybe, just maybe, had he and his three friends -- Matt Brown, John Chynoweth and Chris Soto -- all wearing Eagles jerseys, not headed for the exit mid-way through the fourth quarter, he could have avoided what they say happened next.

As they started down the exit ramp, Matt lagged behind them. A woman alerted the other three that their friend was surrounded by a group of fans wearing Redskins jerseys.

MATT BROWN, ATTENDED EAGLES/REDSKINS GAME WITH ED ALLEN- And one gentleman pushed me, pushed him back, and at that point, just chaos pretty much came about.

JOHN CHYNOWETH, ATTENDED EAGLES/REDSKINS GAME WITH ED ALLEN- We all got there and started trying to break things up, and Ed was to my left, and I saw him get tackled from the side and fall over onto his back and basically hit his head, bounced off the ground. It was a pretty hard hit. It kind of sounded like an eggshell breaking.

ALLEN- Apparently, the same guy who knocked me down pretty much grabbed me by the shirt, as I was unconscious, and just beat on my face.

SCHWARZ- Moments later, Redskins fan Carl Sears decided to leave the game with his 14-year-old son.

CARL SEARS, WITNESS- We walked about 50 yards down the ramp, and we came across a guy who was totally flat out and unconscious on the concrete. And I initially thought he was a Redskins fan because he had a basically white jersey, but he was covered in blood. And that's why I thought he was a Redskins fan.

CHYNOWETH- Somebody was holding his neck for him so we could turn him over onto his side because the blood seemed to be running back down his throat, so he was having a hard time breathing at this point.

SEARS- It appeared to me that his head had been smashed on the concrete because his head was completely split open. He was covered in blood. And I really did -- I was fearful that it could have been a brain hemorrhage, or I was concerned for his very life.

SCHWARZ- Allen suffered several fractures to his face, requiring three hours of facial reconstructive surgery. Two titanium plates were inserted below his eyes, and his broken jaw was wired shut. Since the incident, Allen has lost 20 pounds and endured short-term memory loss. Dr. Eric Marchant, who performed the surgery, says that with just a few more punches, Allen's injuries could have been even worse.

DR. ERIC MARCHANT, PERFORMED RECONSTRUCTIVE FACIAL SURGERY ON ED ALLEN- And anything could have happened. I mean, he could have been more seriously injured -- I mean, serious brain damage, more than just a concussion but permanent brain injury, death.

SCHWARZ- Allen's mother, Pat, was forced to feed her 26-year-old son baby food. She maintains Ed did nothing wrong. He simply wore an Eagles jersey to a Redskins game in Washington.

PAT ALLEN, ED ALLEN'S MOTHER- Why wouldn't he wear the team that he loves? That's what he's loved since he's a little boy. He's a Philadelphia sports fan all the way.

SCHWARZ- You think that that was the only reason that you were the guy they picked?

ALLEN- That's the only reason I could see, yes.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's see.... drunken violent behavior from the fanbase... nah, not Skins fans.. right?

Wrong again my friends - http://www.washingto...5112001497.html

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again - I'm not saying that the Eagles fanbase doesn't deserve some of their reputation. All I am saying is that EVERY fan base has it's share. I know of whole lot of Eagles fans that have never been in a fight, never engage in demeaning trash talk, and are very successful professionals.

But keep on painting w/ that broad brush - honestly - most Eagles fans like myself love watching you all get your panties in a bunch over this topic. And as stated earlier - it keeps the Eagles games filled with mostly Eagles fans.. and that's okay by me. Trust me.

Hey - maybe you all should just expand F51 and those way cool Dead Tree Crew guys.... that'll sure help your argument about fan bases won't it.

I’m so sick and tired of coming in and reading crap about Philly fans in general. People take something, then go back, and rehash everything that has happened in the past, isolating a bunch of incidents and putting them into one summary making them sound worse than they are.

I did not see the video, since work blocks youtube, so I won’t comment on it til later. But the other stuff I will.

Again, Philly fan base deserves some of their reputation – and Philly fan base is PROUD OF IT. I love the fact I can go to a Flyers playoff game (Like last year against Pitt), and every Penguin fan have a hard time because people talk trash. I like the fact that when I go to a Phillies game in DC, 3/4ths of the crowd is Phillies fans, travel well, and support their teams. I love the fact that when the Sixers are struggling, no one shows up to games and sends a message “Do something about it”, and they bring back AI, and the place Sells out because they recognize AI’s accomplishments, give him his due, and appreciate the attempt on behalf of the organization.

I enjoy Philly fans, because they don’t take crap from players. You wanna half-ass your effort, we don’t want you hear (See: Hartnell, Scott). You decline to sign with the team that drafts you 2nd overall, because you want $10 million when the first overall pick got $2.5 million, you and your brother will get booed to no end everytime you walk in the stadium, along with as much said to you as possible from the stands (See Drew, JD – Drew, Stephen).

I love Philly fans because they will respect what you do, and show it. Pat Burrell, who struggled many times as a player, got booed plenty as a player on the Phils because his struggles. But through it all, never said one bad thing about the fans. Never. And when he came back for the first time in an opposing jersey, he received a standing ovation. Then the second game against his old team, hits a homerun, and receives a standing ovation until he rounded the bases and was in the dugout.

And you know what – I go to the Skins Eagles game every year dressed head to toe in Redskins gear. Because although I was born in Philly and love everything Philly, I grew up a skins fan, and I will always support them, and never be a b**** and not wear the colors. And I’ll tell you what, each game there is one thing that is done by a single person or group that is just dumb, but there are a multitude of fans that will sit there and discuss the game and the teams with you. It’s simple, don’t engage with the morons, and engage yourself with the knowledgable fans.

And don’t tell me at DC sporting events there aren’t Morons. I go to the Flyers Caps game at the Verizon Center each year, this year twice, and I hear s*** all the time. But I don’t engage. The same thing said to me from Eagles fans are said by Caps fans. Its when you engage and retaliate with words it escalates.

So don’t sit on here and say Philly deserves the crap they get, they get enough from the Media and people like you bad mouthing a WHOLE ENTIRE FANBASE when a few people ruin it. I see some people in here who should be clarifying their comments, but no, they just call a whole city trash, you my friends are not helping the discussion. And yes, everything in Philly is magnified, because everyone knows it’s the city that threw batteries, or this, or that, etc.

Other cities don’t get this much attention for what their fanbases do at all, and it’s a nationwide thing. I bet you if a Eagles fan poured a beer on Chris Cooley while he was on the bench, it would be remembered and re-introduced into anti-philly arguments for years to come by everyone….

…but I bet you without looking it up most of you wouldn’t know what fanbase the fan was from when a beer was poured into Shane Victorino’s face when he tried to make a catch last year.

Nobody has cared about the Eagles since...well, nobody has ever cared about the Eagles. ;)

The most press the Eagles have ever recieved was due to the Rush Limbaugh incident, in contrast to actual on the field accomplishments.

Historically the worst franchise in the East, or as most would say, the Least of the Beast! :finger:

You know you have a city full of morons, as somebody else already pointed out, when the local hero is a fictitious boxer.

Although I’m sure you won’t read all of that and this, just to expand, I really enjoy it on this site. I’ll engage in chats here, post here, spend time here because I’m a skins fan. But I’ll also add stuff to both the Nationals and Caps forums (maybe when the sixers get good and I start watching I’ll post in the wizards), and I have received great respect from the regular posters there, and I thank them. However, there are a few people who have told me to eff off and don’t engage in conversation because I’m an opposing fan. That’s fine, that’s how some Philly fans are. So don’t say they aren’t in your fanbase, when they are there and you ignore them.

Eagles fans are trash. Its that simple. That's why they are constantly being talked about like animals and quite franjly other than some of you posters in this thread most of the eagle fans LOVE that they are seen this way. They eat their tasty kakes and talk abotu how tough they are. If you look at the moron who posted the video that started this off in you tube you see he puts "yea, this is what you get when you come to our house". Im gonna bet that guy lives in his mother's basement right off of south street. For the most part their entire existences are wrapped up in being a part of the animals who make up that fan base. They are bullies. Plain and simple. Just like the team they support and as soon as it gets close to being a winner they start choking and wallah, they fall apart. . . again. That idiot Cataldi, that fur coat wearing moron eskin who just abuses the entire fan base and calls them idiots while they slurp him, even that idiot mayor/governor. What a joke you people are. Isn't there an eagles board out there where you can all go yell "yo adrian!!" together? Win ONE. Just ONE. Then come talk to me about how "relevant" we are. 11 titles in this division. ELEVEN. You don't have one. You won the coin toss with Arizona to get the boot out of our division and you talk down to us on our board? Wow. You guys are best known for your chicken wing eating contest. You lose all credibility when you actually try to argue that your fanbase is just like every other. You gotta be kidding. You lose even more credibility when you come into a board boasting three lombardis and start talking about relevancy. I'll see you all in three weeks when minny bounces you on your asses again.

However, there are a few people who have told me to eff off and don’t engage in conversation because I’m an opposing fan. That’s fine, that’s how some Philly fans are. So don’t say they aren’t in your fanbase, when they are there and you ignore them.


Seriously, and just be honest in front of everyone watching here. I am not talking about one or two idiots. I will agree with the overall sentiment that there are idiots in every fan base. I am not saying there isn't a jerk redskin fan anywhere on the planet. Of course there is. I am talking about the relative percentages of fans. Are you going to seriously suggest that the eagles fan base and the redskins fan base have the same percentage of morons who are willing to push 10 year olds down the stairs at their stadium for wearing the opposing team's colors? Go ahead and tell us you believe that so the rest of what you are saying can be put in proper context.

You either acknowledge that your fan base has a significant percentage of drunk, violent, borderline anti-social/psychotic idiots in it or you lose all of your credibility in here. Anyone, who REALLY knows that fan base knows the truth. They are neanderthals. That doesn't mean decent iggle fans don't exist. Im not saying that. I am saying whhat the original poster was pointing out. Throwing iceballs relentlessly at a visiting fan who is just sitting down in the seat he paid for is quintessential philly bullying. And just like any other bully, if it was just one on one I guarantee no snowballs are getting thrown.

The fans in that video are DISGUSTING. Defend it til your blue in the face. Tell us how "normal" that is. Go ahead. Those are two guys who paid their money to watch a football game and no less than a hundred morons assault them with iceballs. Its physical violence. If it was one time, I'd say, hey they got carried away but you know as well as I do (I lived in that disgusting city for a dozen years) that is par for the course. I have seen them literally beat kids. They were on National news a few years ago for fights during a monday night game. They had a freakin jail IN THEIR STADIUM. And they were PROUD of it.

So go ahead and tell me again how there is no difference in our fan bases? Or are you like the rest of your troll buddies on our board going to point out that our team sucks this year as your defense to the animals pelting those people with ice balls for having the temerity to buy a ticket to watch their team play football. Freakin goons.

Great video. You are not welcome to attend Eagles games if you are not an Eagles fan. It's that simple. You ask for trouble and you will find it.


My point personified. Listen to this guy. BUYING a ticket to a football game is "asking for trouble". These two people in this video BUYING a ticket to a football game got them physically assaulted by a hundred people who don't like the team they root for. I bet they all feel real tough. Because that's so courageous. Launching iceballs with a hundred other people against two people sitting down facing the other way. You sure showed them. Tough guys.

Ok, so I think I might save this comment for the future next some some Eagle fan brings up one of your own being verbally harassed at a 'Skins game and tries to equate the 2 incidents.

"Well they shouldn't have come to the game, it's their own fault. They were asking for it merely by being there, serves them right!"

Nobody should have to look too far to find video of skins fans pelting opposing fans during snow since we just had a game with a foot of snow. Anyone got that video yet? I don't understand since every fan base is the same, how is it that we don't have video of our fans violently attacking opposing fans with snowballs for daring to come root for their team?

YOu pick out one happening, that i dont even know if it's true, to define moron. Please see below, when i comment further on hitting kids. But yes, i think the Eagle's have more morons, but i think for the most part each fan base has about the same amount of morons who cross the line. And no, i dont put verbal stuff crossing the line becase you get that everywhere you go, yes, even DC.


The fans in that video are DISGUSTING. Defend it til your blue in the face.

I cannot speak on the video, like i stated, i have yet to watch it.

I have seen them literally beat kids. They were on National news a few years ago for fights during a monday night game.

I never read, or heard anything about kids being beat up, is there a link? this is, indeed, pathetic and no philly fan should be proud of. And i'm sure 99.9% of the fanbase thinks this is pathetic, and that once person represents that .1%.

They had a freakin jail IN THEIR STADIUM. And they were PROUD of it.

Yup. Because it made other fans not want to go to the games. Last year's Pittsburgh game caused the biggest uproar that Steelers fans overtook fed ex. Well that would never happen in Philly because of the intimidation factor

So go ahead and tell me again how there is no difference in our fan bases? Or are you like the rest of your troll buddies on our board going to point out that our team sucks this year as your defense to the animals pelting those people with ice balls for having the temerity to buy a ticket to watch their team play football. Freakin goons.

Thanks for reading my post and commenting :doh:. First off - i'm not a troll, i've been on this board LONGER THAN YOU. Also, i'm a Skins fan, did you miss that little fact?

Because 15 minutes into the game Giants fans outnumbered skins fans becuase they were out the door. it wouldn't have been a fair fight. haha

We are wasting our time. Its like trying to explain to a pitbull that they don't HAVE to attack the other dog just because its there. They just don't understand. Since they were kids their drunk fathers have been punching out opposing fans and throwing objects at people for rooting against their beloved iggles. Its all they know. They honestly believe that its something to be proud of. They actually think winging hundreds of iceballs at people who are sitting in their seats watching a game is them demonstrating their "toughness". And the ESPN's of the world just encourage it by putting these people who are starved for attention on TV and calling them tough.

Good one. See that's funny!! I can take that. I notice you didn't mention the behavior of the morons who threw iceballs at those poor people sitting in the seats they paid for. I am still very interested in the whole "eagles fans are just like everyone else" argument. Because up to now, all I know about eagles fans is that mom always said not to feed them from the table.

Wrong - http://espn.go.com/p...transcript.html


Interesting, I've always wondered if that story was ever reported. I was at that game (pretty sure it was the infamous pepper spray game) and was seated 20 feet away from where the incident occurred. We could feel the "thud" when the guy hit the wall. My friend left his seat to see what all the commotion was about and came back and said he thought he just saw a dead guy on the ground. I've never seen that transcript. I called around the news stations the next day to see if anything was reported. I always just figured Redskins security covered it up.

[quote name='Brotherz']You admit you didn't see the video then go on a page and half rant about how its just like every other fan base. I am not surprised that I have to explain why that is absurd.

Then again, why would i expect anything different. Have I "elaborated" enough on why it doesn't make a very credible argument to comment about something you have no idea about?

Ya see usually, when someone jumps into the middle of a conversation and starts defending the actions of a hundred people in physically attacking two defenseless individuals, and there is a video posting of the attack that forms the basis of the entire discussion one would actually go watch the video FIRST and then enlighten us all on why what it shows doesn't merely depict a bunch of drunk morons trying to feel better about the pathetic lives they lead. Do you understand now? Do you need me to explain it more for you? I can always find a village idiot to translate into philly if you want.QUOTE]

No, if you read my original post it was more about the fact that Philly gets blown up by media and other teams fans around the US, to an extreme that is above and beyond any other team. It seems Philly's incidents become nationally known, when other teams are swept under the rug and forgotten.

People moved on from comments on the video and got off topic and many things were repeated that Philly fans here constantly, because of a select few morons go to far. Then there are morons who try to top those morons, and it snowballs.

http://en.wikipedia....les#Eagles_fans
-Bounty Bowl parts I and II, especially II where a barrage of snowballs and batteries from the stands forced police to escort Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson, off the field.
-At the November 10, 1997, game against the San Francisco 49ers, featuring a fan with a flare gun, a large brawl on an upper level, and an Eagles fan being mauled because his friend was wearing a New York Giants jacket; all leading to six arrests and 269 ejections from the stadium, as well as a ban on beer sales for the remainder of the season and the introduction of the famous "Eagles Court" in the stadium's basement
-Pelting Santa with snowballs
-Cheering the Michael Irving career-ending injury

And of course, there were the "few drunk" Eagle fans who beat Chief Zee to within an inch of his life in Philly back in the day.

I guess on the plus side we should be applauding the Philly fans for toning it down. At least these were just snowball, no batteries inside them and no glass bottles in their place.

At the end of the day its tough to talk abotu a "fan base" without insulting the exceptions. The guys posting in here generally are not the people I am talking about. I think their defense of their fanbase is misplaced but obviously, there are exceptions and you have to make sterotypes and generalizations when talking about something as intangible as a "fanbase". I mean no disrespect to the INDIVIDUALS here in the forum. The "fanbase" as a whole is disgusting in my opinion.

Wait a second, I was just told that the jail was put into the stadium on purpose for intimidation of opposing teams? Oh you mean it was put in this stadium (and ONLY this stadium) because these animals started a mini-war in the middle of a football game because someone wore a blue jacket? Oh, well, that certainly shows how fecals fans are just like everyone else's. When is our jail coming?

So right there, i count Bounty bowls I, II, the 49ers game, and the beat up of Cheif Z Terrible incidents.

Pelting Santa with snoballs is the most widely know, yet most don't know the details on the actual situation. Wiki says booing the Easter Bunny - oh who friggin cares?

And cheering Michael Irvin, i don't give a rats A** because the guy got away with 92 million things, including attempted murder, and it was swept under the rug.

I dont understand how ESPN and NFL Network allowed him to be hired.

A "few"? Cmon. Really? Are you really going with that? Seriously? When you get home take a look at this video man. Look at the moron who posted it with the comments "hell yea, this is what happens when you come into our house". Look at the hundred or so people just in ONE section of this stadium, just last week, just at one game, throwing iceballs at two defenseless people just for wearing a white jersey. Its disgusting. And its not a few man. Its just not. Its the MAJORITY. I lived there for 12 years. I am not someone who doesn't know. You can't lie to me about this. I have been there. I went to every eagles/skins game at the vet/stink between 1999 and 2008. They are animals and you know it. We aren't talking about a "few" rogue fans man. They don't create a court system within the stadium for a "few" fans. They don't suspend beer sales for a "few" fans. They don't do these things for even a "few" incidents. They do it for a pattern of drunk violence perpetrated by a large group of human beings who don't know how to behave with other human beings.
