I’m a Giants fan so it’s safe to say that I don’t like the Eagles. I’m also still bitter about Vai Sikahema beating up the goalpost. Anyway, you may like this article from Tuesday’s WSJ “NFL’s Eagles Tackle Drunken, Rowdy Fans”

From ESPN……

The rowdy fan behavior became so violent — the 700 level of the Vet makes Raider Nation look like a tea party — that the city was forced to permanently assign a Common Pleas Court judge to the Vet on game day. Judge Seamus McCaffery handed out fines and jail time — while the game was going on! — in a make-shift courtroom in the basement of the Vet, the only stadium in league history with a judge on the premises to process the criminal element in the stands.

[quote comment=”112041″][quote comment=”111995″]Anything Philly equals choke. The Phillies. The Eagles. The 76ers. The Flyers. Even your horses choke. Poor “Smarty Jones” couldn’t handle the pressure of Belmont. :mrgreen:[/quote]
They may win, they may not. But how is it a “choke” situation? We got to the series, that’s awesome. This is my first chance to drink a beer while watching my team in the world series. I cannot believe it. I am so excited!!

It amazes me the absolute level of hatred toward Philly teams/people that thrives in the NYC metro area. For a city of people who take pride in being the “Center of the Universe,” there sure is a lot of time wasted on hating your smaller cousin to the south.

NYers often talk about how arrogant and rude Philadelphians are. . .but I’ve never seen arrogance on the levels I’ve seen up here anywhere else in the country or world (admittedly I haven’t been to France yet). I mean come on, “The City” and “Center of the World” really are two of the most arrogant terms – as though there is no other city. LOL NYers, can’t live with ’em, can’t kill ’em. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

You’ve got it all wrong. I’ve been to games in Philly and what goes on there with their fans is like no other city in the country. Vicious, hateful fans, looking for trouble. THAT’S where the animosity comes from. Remember, you’re the football fans that had to have a court house RIGHT AT THE STADIUM to deal with all the BS that goes on.
