    Wow, wow, I thought this kind of stuff only happens in Philly Florio?
    C’mon man, you guys can’t post individual stories for when stuff like this happens in Philly, then just put it in the one liners when it happens somewhere else. This is something that was actually confirmed, unlike the “Cowboys fan face slashed” which wasn’t…but that was front page news at PFT. C’mon guys, don’t totally turn into the machine.
    Poor guy, hope he’s alright.

    “I don’t sense no problem,”
    DeSean’s brilliant use of a double negative in this sentence would indicate that he does indeed sense a problem. Pay this man, now!

    So a Jets fan gets arrested and gets a whole article and this guy gets his skull cracked and gets a one liner? The next step would be death and get no mention at all. I guess I’ll assume a fan got killed at the Colts game also.

    I’m sure he could find a ticket on one of those buses he didn’t deploy during Katrina.
