Another proud moment for Philadelphia sports fans

packerfancar

Philadelphia sports fans always claim they get a bad rap.  Sure, they can be boorish.  But so are fans in New York and Boston!

Eagles fans got so upset Sunday about their unfair stereotype that they had to take it out on something, like the car of a Packers fan.

A Wisconsin native that now works in Pennsylvania as a college professor attended the Eagles-Packers game with his father.  His Toyota Camry was “stomped on, kicked and beaten.”  Mirrors were broken, wipers torn out, and dents made on the hood, trunk, and roof.

“When I left Green Bay everyone said to be careful — the Philadelphia fans have a reputation,” Peter Coenen (the father) told the Morning Call of Lehigh Valley.  “My son had a Green Bay Packers shirt on. As we drove in, they gave us the finger.”

Oh, we didn’t realize the guy had a Packers shirt on.  Dude was asking for it.

    Just because it happened at an Eagles game, doesn’t mean it was Eagles fans.

    Could have been a BEARS FAN!!!

  2. nepatriots128154 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:31 PM

    I would say I’m shocked, but that would be a lie.

  3. northernbeaches says: Jan 11, 2011 6:31 PM

    First dogs, now cars.

    You stay classy, Philly.

  4. bcknights says: Jan 11, 2011 6:32 PM

    I thought KC had the worst fans. You should be able to be a fan of who ever.

  5. jamie54 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:33 PM

    Dude you went into their house wearing that gear that’s just stupid. Don’t call it Filthadelphia for nothing.

  6. brasho says: Jan 11, 2011 6:33 PM

    And the Philadelphia Eagles franchise should be paying for ALL damages to this guy’s car. Granted, Philly fans are known to be classless a-holes, but that doesn’t give anybody the right to destroy another’s property. The man paid for parking at the Eagles lot and their failure to provide adequate security means they should pay for all damages.

  7. greggyd717 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:33 PM

    Do you enjoy posting stories like this so that your comment traffic goes up?

    Here come the rants generalizing the entire Philadelphia fan base because of the actions of three unruly drunk people at the game. Here come the slings of verbal epithets about how trashy the people of Philadelphia are when 90% of people have probably never even visited the city. Here comes the throwing snowballs at Santa Claus reference. Blah blah blah. Get a new shtick.

    Fans in other cities never fight, never harass fans of the opposing team, or do anything that could be deemed as remotely unsportsmanlike. Yawn. Onto the next one.

  8. bonesuggsnharmony says: Jan 11, 2011 6:34 PM

    another confirmation that PA people are idiots, i.e. the whole town of Pittsburgh

  9. heywoodjablome says: Jan 11, 2011 6:35 PM

    Way to dig this up Gregg. Trying to get a few more hits on the website? Can we talk about how my car got vandalized in New York? Oh wait, things like this only happen in Philly.

    Here comes the very original “stay classy” comments.

  10. zeussuperman says: Jan 11, 2011 6:35 PM

    Speaking as an Eagles fan, those “fans” are drunken scumbags and should be arrested.

    But they exist in every city. I am glad Rosenthal is going to be reporting on every incident of fan violence from now on for every team, right?

    (Also, I will cue the obligatory “cue the obligatory Philadelphia fan comments” comment right now).

  11. nbcstinks says: Jan 11, 2011 6:36 PM

    I’ve heard Eagles fans can be rough. I’ve been to a few road stadiums as a Vikings fan dressed in my purple (Phoenix, Cincinnati, GB many times) and I must say, while I haven’t seen a game in Philadelphia, GB fans around Lambeau aren’t a very classy bunch themselves. Some of the things I saw and heard this last time surely would make me think twice about bringing one of my sons to see a game there much less want to go back myself. Sad.

  12. benh999 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:36 PM

    Not getting a D-cell to the head, he should count himself lucky.

  13. grandpoopah says: Jan 11, 2011 6:36 PM

    Well played, Rosenthal. Condemn several million Philadelphia Eagles fans for the deplorable actions of a handful of drunks. Now go back to doing what you do best – i.e. mutilating the English language with your horrendous spelling and grammar.

  14. jimmysee says: Jan 11, 2011 6:36 PM

    Stay classy, Philadelphia.

  15. davidm1886 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:36 PM

    this happens in every city from time to time, but only certain cities get it published by the national media

  16. skulz fontaine says: Jan 11, 2011 6:37 PM

    Probably a good thing for Coenen that the Eagles fans weren’t packing Glocks.

  17. beastofeden says: Jan 11, 2011 6:38 PM

    I went to Philadelphia in week 4 draped in burgundy and gold. #26 Jersey, Hat, wallet, sweater. I was hootin, hollerin’, and bellowing “COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO” when Chris Coooooooley caught that TD from #5.

    I went to McFaddens before the game. Needless to say i was the only Redskin fan in there. I was yucking it up and giving out what was given to me.

    Yeah, major smack talk, name calling, the usual that you get in ANY opposing city.

    Honestly, Philly fans DO get a bad rap. This passive aggressive schmuck was more than likely to feminine to reciprocate the “love” .

    When you go to Philly, bring the heat or keep your a** inside. When they see you’re not gonna take it like those SF snowball fans, they’ll back off.

    It helps when your squad is up 14-3 in the 1st half

  18. ratbastardshanahandjob says: Jan 11, 2011 6:39 PM

    This was on the local news. Guy is lucky those AssClowns attacked their car and not him or his dad. If you went to the stations site and read the comments. There were some saying they deserved it….

    E-Girl fans need to take a trip to Pittsburg. They can see something at Steeler HQ they will never see in Phil. An actual Lombardi trophy…..

    Jeffrie Laurie thinks the E-Girls are the NFL’s “gold standard”. Ya fools gold….

  19. sdboltaction says: Jan 11, 2011 6:39 PM

    That sucks. Thing is, the car would have been stomped even if the Eagles won.

  20. xxwhodatxx says: Jan 11, 2011 6:39 PM

    I mean they got a convicted felon at QB what do you expect…

  21. adzack3441 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:40 PM

    Yeah just like that time they tackled the 6 year old with the Jets jersey on!! And when they threw glass bottles at the refs and got them permanently banned from all stadiums!!! Oh wait….that was Cleveland.

  22. cmstrick says: Jan 11, 2011 6:40 PM

    Stay classy, Philadelphia.

  23. wetpaperbag2 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:40 PM

    Philly fans keepin’ it classy since 25 B.C.

  24. theblowedone says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    And heres the video of the classy San Fran fans trying to kill each other and running over dozens of people in a car…

    but again, this is a non-story, I mean its not PHILLY so who cares??

  25. giablommi says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    There are some places you don’t go in with enemy colors on. It’s pretty unanimous that Philadelphia is the most notoriously hostile to outsiders, so really, maybe this guy should have smartened up and listened to the people who were advising him to be cautious.

    As a non-Eagles fan though I have to admit , I went to the Eagles Thursday night game a few weeks back with the wife expecting to be absolutely horrified by what I might see in the stands, but the crowd (in my section) was very well behaved and didn’t see any incidents. I have heard some pretty horrific stories though and that the h Linc is definitely not a place for the faint of heart.

  26. bluefan204 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    Oh boy, here we go…

    “The media makes it all up! We aren’t any worse than any other fans in the NFL!1!!1!”

    They don’t call it Philthadelphia for nothing. Bunch of low-life scumbags

  27. tantrim says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    When football becomes the most important thing in your life and you live in Philly what else can you expect from them.

  28. contra74 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    Dude was definitely asking for it. Every team has a fan reputation and Philly has a bad one. I live in Los Angeles and I remember that you had to be INSANE if you wore another teams jersey during a Raiders game. You had to be the TOUGHEST MoFo on the planet to do that and even then it wasnt enough. I went to the Vikings/Cardinals game in AZ 2 years back and was a bit hesitant to wear my Vikings gear but Cardinal fans were classy and actually game to toss the ball with us and play a game of bean bags. Exercise some caution folks because although it may be just a game to you it may not be for others…especially after they have had a few drinks.

  29. bigbeefyd says: Jan 11, 2011 6:41 PM

    Classy, classy people in Philly.

  31. vicktator says: Jan 11, 2011 6:42 PM

    do you ever post articles like this about boston or new york fans? no because you hate Philly, this article is garbage and perpetuates a stereotype because of a few drunk idiots, get a life Gregg

  32. b7p19 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:42 PM

    “Oh, we didn’t realize the guy had a Packers shirt on. Dude was asking for it.”

    Well, at least YOU understand…

    OK, so I don’t agree with taunting kids or damaging property…HOWEVER…I have no problem with giving opposing teams fans the finger. Thats harmless and you should expect it.

  33. selgaeinla says: Jan 11, 2011 6:43 PM

    Wow, the actions of one or two and you generalize that all Philly fans are that way. SO using your logic, since the shooter in AZ was a crazed white person, all white people are crazed political assassins.

  34. BleedingSilverAndBlack says: Jan 11, 2011 6:44 PM

    Every team has it’s share of these types of fans unfortunately.

    You have to understand about our hillbilly neighbors to our East. The average Packer fan is a WI country bumpkin with no idea how to make it in the real world.Even after Pa Kettle was warned ,they were most likely in a drunken stupor from too much Pabst and yelling “Go Pack Go!” Lucky that those Philly fan convicts didn’t shank him…

  37. august1969 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:46 PM

    Rosenthal,

    Everyone knows how Philly fans can be because of a couple of morons. I am an avid Philly fan and I would never do any of this to anyone. Stop making it seem like we are all drunken idiots who do this to people. We aren’t.

    Also, I heard this news Sunday night, its now…Tuesday night? Must be a slow day for you digging up old, nonstories.

    It was reported by some ppl at the game at the jaguars-giants game, giants fans were making (ill try to be appropriate here) “unclean, filthy, 18+” mocks and signals at the jaguars team bus and also threw garbage at the bus as well

    it isnt just filthydelphia

  42. purpleguy says: Jan 11, 2011 6:48 PM

    Pretty weak, even if it was a cheeser. Well, it’s not like the guy got stabbed in a bar for being an opposing fan. Oh wait, that was last year when a Pack fan stabbed a Viking fan had the gall to celebrate after the Vikes beat the Pack.

  43. connie75 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:49 PM

    They don’t call it philthy for nothin’.

  44. phillyhouse222 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:49 PM

    That guy shouldn’t have had his car vandalized, but I’m sure Packers fans would do the same thing.

  45. nockinon7sdoor says: Jan 11, 2011 6:49 PM

    Philly fans are not the only ones. I live in Baltimore. I am a Steelers fan. In September of 2004, on the eve of the Ravens-Steelers game in Baltimore, Someone climbed on my porch railing and took a $35 Steelers flag. I guess I am a slow learner because 2 years later the same thing happened, again on the eve of a Ravens-Steelers match up. I related these stories at the time to my co-workers, and most implied that I had it coming, being a Steelers fan and all.

  46. Brian Duper says: Jan 11, 2011 6:50 PM

    The city should ask Marvin Harrison to install some law and order at the stadium. I hear he runs a tight establishment.

  47. obamaczarofussa says: Jan 11, 2011 6:50 PM

    Philly is a sewer of a city,from the run down row houses to the homeless beggers at every traffic light. It’s not known for it’s classy people, so it’s no wonder their giving the finger to children and damaging a working mans car just trying to enjoy a game with his son….stay classy she-gul fans.. stay classy!

  48. didiwags says: Jan 11, 2011 6:51 PM

    Wow, how rude and disrespectful Philly is!!
    Great job in showing how classy Philly really is!

    Oh and I am a Vikings fan… maybe it is the MN nice thing! Such bad taste!

  49. blackglass3 says: Jan 11, 2011 6:51 PM

    I’d still rather deal with “Talk Talk Talk, backs down when challenged” Philly fan (and I have been part of it at Talk Of The Town there by the stadium, so I know what I am talking about) over scumbag Jet fans.

    The dude may have been asking for it. You dont know the back story. I was at this game and a Packers fan wearing a Greg Jennings jersey was running his mouth. Someone said something back and the Jennings guy threw a beer at his feet and they had to be seperated by security. The Packers fan then started screaming “Typical Philadelphia fan”

  57. botully says: Jan 11, 2011 6:55 PM

  58. east96st says: Jan 11, 2011 6:55 PM

    The best line from the entire story –
    “More likely, it will go down as another example of Philadelphia sports fans at their worst and add to their reputation as out-of-control, violent, destructive drunks and all-around sore losers.”

    No need to add to that. Sums it up perfectly.

    Are you kidding me Mike? This type of crappy journalism is exactly why your website takes so much heat. I have been a huge fan of of profootballtalk.com for a long time but this post is a bunch if $hit. This type of stuff happens in just about every other major city. I am a Philadelphia resident and despise reports like this because all your doing is highlighting the losers that do this crap and we both know that every city has them. How come we don’t hear stories of the trashy fans out in LA that attends the Dodger games that will threaten your life or the low class punks in Washington that spit on us when we go to a Redskins game. I’m not gonna even mention Mets/Yankees/Giants/Jets fans that are barely primates when we go to their stadiums. Every city has trash, but cheap page filling journalism pieces like this drive me crazy. Don’t be a sheep and just follow the heard and delete this garbage at the editing desk.

    I am sure the fine outstanding fans are back in there row houses talking about how another Filthy sports team got screwed

    Once again in the super bowl era no trophy for the filthy egals only team in the NFC East with out one

    Typical Philly fan…they normally only act like that in packs, one on one they are as soft as cupcakes. As a Cowboys fan I don’t even mess with them anymore, their frustrations are an accumulation of over 50 years of mediocrity and failure, and this year was no different.

    I appreciate the eagles keeping the division safe for us, but we will take over from here. Cowboys WILL be back for the East in 2011,

  75. nfl4ever says: Jan 11, 2011 7:07 PM

    I was at a Raider game. It was a Monday night game against K.C. I am a huge Raider fan. Damn game ended with a Andre Rison touch down with less than a minute left in the game to give K.C. the win. After witnessing a K.C. fan get attacked in the restaurant with heavy glass salt and pepper shakers, I found my Mustang convertable with a shattered window and a ripped up top. Over $1500 bucks in damage. And it was raining. Couldn’t belive it. Oh, forgot to mention, my care was RED! Hey Al, I’ll take a winning season in lieu of cash.

  77. jwil444 says: Jan 11, 2011 7:12 PM

    Why should anyone be surprised by this? Philly fans are the absolute worst, most classless fans in the league. They are a disgrace and it is only fitting their QB is a known dog killer. Who by the way, will ensure they never see a super bowl.

    They are a miserable, ignorant lot and know no shame.

    Every Freaking One of you Losers Should Be Sterilized.
    Its a game. Great to be passionate,but when does passionate turn in to obsession.
    You think because you wear a logo on your hooded sweatshirts of a team” its OK, your just a fan but” ask yourself when does it cross the line.
    Will it take a fan getting stomped to death in the parking lot to finally figure out the might need more help over there in Philadelphia. Idiots! You are dealing with classless animals.
    Even Worse is that any Philly fan AND EVERY Philly fan has this on there Fan Resume. You All Are A Waste Of OXYGEN. And They Should Lock All Of You In A Freaking CAGE! (like the one in your stadium.)

  79. moochzilla says: Jan 11, 2011 7:14 PM

    Typical lazy journalism.

    Name me a time when the Philly fans beat a kid, like in Cleveland.

    Name me a time when a Philly game had to be stopped because fans threw beer bottles on the field, like in Cleveland.

    Name me a time when Philly fans blinded an opposing fan, like in Chicago.

    Name me a time when Philly fans spit on a player’s wife, like at Yankee Stadium with Cliff Lee’s wife.

    Name me a time when Philly fans jumped out of the stands and BEAT a coach, like in Chicago (White Sox).

    Name me a time when football fans got drunk and beat someone up at their stadium? Oh, EVERY STADIUM EVERY WEEK.

    The fact that we decided to clean it up by having a courtroom made us a target. Every other franchise that didn’t do that is choosing to ignore it.

    But this was easy for you to “write” about, right?

    Lemme guess, you’re from (A) a city with no sports teams or (B) Boston.

    Oh, and Cliff Lee came back here BECAUSE of the fans!

    Philadelphia is like London or Paris compared to where most of you flyover state losers live.

    So have fun celebrating your anniversary at Arby’s you middle America trailer trash.

    “I am sure the fine outstanding fans are back in there row houses talking about how another Filthy sports team got screwed”

    Oh, because people who live in row homes are poor? If you live in 90% of the nation, those row homes are worth more than your McMansion.

    Oh, and most people in their row homes know that the proper use of “THEIR”. You can’t even speak English, you middle America trash.

    Wow Rosenthal. Really? Why do you guys on this site like to blow up situations like this. EVERY city has some bad apples. I live in Northern California and have been to plenty of raider and 49er games and have seen plenty of fights break out in both stadiums and Frisco is considered one of the nicer, friendlier stadiums. I remember last season, a chiefs fan was shot in the parking lot at a raider game and I didnt read any articles on here about that, but I DO remember reading an article on this site about a cowboy fan in Philly that got punched because they were wearing a Romo jersey. You guys love to pour it on with Eagles fans, dont you? Incidents like this happen in every NFL city, yet you guys love to write about every little thing that happens in Philly so you can label “all” Philly fans as being classless.

    My favorite comment?

    “You stay classy, Philly. But, I guess an ETERNITY of losing will do that to people. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS.”

    You do realize that you were LAST in the division this year AGAIN, right? I know…your team has won 3 Lombardi trophies. That’s so fantastic. It’s so nice to hear that your team hasn’t made the playoffs since 2007. Enjoy your terrible ownership and perpetual dominance of the cellar despite all of those high draft picks. I sure do envy your franchise as do most people around the league…..

    Nope. He begged to stay, and the whined and cried about where he was all season long. Tried to wreck the team before the season was done, via his “agent”.

    She was called every name you can think of. She never cheered a moment. Scared to death. Philly, don’t worry, they’ll never come back. You can live in your own sewer forever.

    To steal an old post, Philly fans are still upset that a burglary at team offices last year resulted in the theft of th team’s collection of Super Bowl trophies. So sad.

    We claim we get a bad rap? GR you are a p.o.s., this is playoffweek, coaching changes and you dig this story up as an NFL rumor from Allentown, forty miles north of Philly and claim that “Philadelphia Fans” did this? Do you think all 70000 ppl in the stadium decided collectively to jump this guy, maybe then we called all fans in a hundred mile radius and asked us to join in in trashing this guys car? This is pathetic that you would post this. What do you have a quota or something? We do have one thing in common with NY and Boston, but you missed it, we have REAL JORNALIST who write real stories about our teams that inspire and excite, you are trash.
    I am sure this guy was holding a bible and he had picked up a couple of nuns at the time, driving them home, probably never made eye contact with anyone in the stadium, no way a fan from another town could have started anything (did you ask?)

    There is nothing i can do about this, the way the you would write such a cheap story and blame every Eagles fan for the actions of a couple a-holes that got carried away. Just go to Google and type Eagles fan and just paste and copy the story for your next write (oh wait, you prolly already did, i guess you had to go shopping instead of being a REAL JORNALIST).

    Philly fans are not the only ones. I live in Baltimore. I am a Steelers fan. In September of 2004, on the eve of the Ravens-Steelers game in Baltimore, Someone climbed on my porch railing and took a $35 Steelers flag. I guess I am a slow learner because 2 years later the same thing happened, again on the eve of a Ravens-Steelers match up. I related these stories at the time to my co-workers, and most implied that I had it coming, being a Steelers fan and all.

  124. marcinhouston says: Jan 11, 2011 8:32 PM

    The Eagles definitely have the criminal element, just no champion element. If they have any energy before or after the game to wreck a car they are wasting energy that they should be using making noise for their defense like champion. Wrecking cars isn’t football. Wrecking your vocal cords is football.

Name another conference that has had all it’s teams play in the final four in college basketball. It’s not our fault that your stuck in some cesspool somewhere. It’s a world class city. Ask Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Washington and Franklin. The city hosts millions of visitors each year. When your cesspool sells out the season in football, hockey and baseball let me know.

    Those are not fans…those are thugs and morons. These are the same kinds of idiots that trash the town after a championship. There is a reason there was/is a jail at the stadium.

    We now have another flyover state nobody cheering for the “Taliban” to bomb Philly.

    I presume, if he even graduated grade school (instead of getting his cousin pregnant at 12), he’d have wrote “Al Qaeda”, since that is who attacked us on 9/11. Remember?

    So here we have a typical red state man-child wishing a terror attack on his fellow countrymen (men, women, children, military members who live there), all because 1 or 2 of the city’s 1.3 million residents broke some dude’s sideview mirror. Oh, ALLEGEDLY broke his sideview mirror.

    And he says “stay classy”.

    Beautiful.

    This is why not everyone should be allowed to vote.

    Look at Detroit and Cleveland. They love their towns so much they abandoned them.

    Look at Washington. They love it so much they live in Virginia.

    Look at Dallas and Houston, no one will live within a 60 minute drive of downtown.

    I wonder how many of the vitriol-spewing morons here have ever BEEN to Philadelphia? As has been said before, the drunken idiot fan is a mainstay of every fan base. It doesn’t mean Philly fans DON’T do these things, it’s that you never hear about it unless it was done there.

    And what exactly does any of this do with “never winning a Super Bowl”? I’m sure a lot of people said the same thing about New Orleans before last year. Do you people even care that what comes out of your mouth doesn’t make any sense as long as you get your volume up?

    I guess I was asking for it when I got jumped by two drunken idiots in Arizona after the NFC Championship Game for the crime of walking quietly to my car with an Eagles jersey on. After all, I was the Philly fan. And these guys WON.

    What a fantastic post! Real insight…………
    As a lifelong resident of Wisconsin and a Packer fan, I would like to personally award you with the moron of the day. Jealousy is an ugly thing. It’s much easier to simply hate another team rather than to invest yourself in loving one. That’s fine with me, but to generalize is just idiotic. I find it deplorable that an NFL fan of an opposing team cannot support their team in certain stadiums for fear of reprisals from a few obnoxious “fans”. Having been to Lambeau many, many times I have NEVER seen this behavior from anyone accept a few Cowboy and Viking fans. That’s to be expected from a few, but to be openly hostile to another fan who simply supporting their team is infantile.

    “Philly. NYC. Boston. San Fran. Chicago. LA.

    LA – Makes sense. Media capitol of the world. Home to the celebrities and icons that make up our culture.

    Boston – Historic epicenter of American history, and contains some of the finest institutions of learning in the world.

    San Francisco – Perhaps the best way to see into the future. America’s boldest city housing, not only the most educated square mile in the world, but one of the world’s greatest construction master pieces in the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Chicago – The birth place of improv theatre as well as some of the great writers in our history, including muckraker Upton Sinclair and poet Stuart Dybek. Not to mention some of the best dining for miles around.

    New york – Of course. This city features a little piece of all the previous cities and is the work place of the people that decide the future of our economy. For better or worse, no one can deny the importance and glamor of New York, New York.

    Philly – (you go ahead and fill this in. I can’t think of anything and if I went to Wikipedia it would defeat the purpose of this comment. So explain to all of us why Philly belongs in the top tier of US cities with the rest of the places you mentioned. I’m not disagreeing with you, I’m just curious. Besides Chicago, Philly is the only one of the above cities I haven’t been to, so please, enlighten me.)

    NFL4eva – I lived in Philly, NYC, Boston and Chicago. I gave Chicago a pass in one my posts.

    I almost moved to Atlanta, went down there and explored it extensively. Traffic was the #1 reason I didn’t, dining was #2, heat was #3. Everything was sugary sweet, and there was NO downtown. Buckhead is a frat house, and the bars are what you’d find anywhere else in a top 25 market. Nothing special. Dining was not what you’d get in NE, CA, or Europe taste-wise. But I understand that’s cultural down there, they like things sweet. To each his own.

    Chicago is a great town, I lived on the North Side by DePaul. Loved it. Better urban park (Lincoln) than Central Park in NYC. Affordability an A+, you can get a great apartment or condo for much less than in NYC or Boston and in a great location. But the dining scene loses out because the seafood places sucked. Now, maybe that’s changed in the past decade as seafood can get out there quicker, but over the time I was there it was poor and over-priced. And crime is worse than in Philly.

    I’m really a top-10 market elitist, not a NE elitist. Get it right!

    To me, Philly and Baltimore get the worst rap, people think we’re all living like Wallace in “the Wire”.

  176. nfl4ever says: Jan 11, 2011 11:19 PM

    These stories keep coming out year after year, and until you guys get a clue about sportsmanship then they will continue to be posted.

    Yea it happens to a certain degree in all stadiums, but demolishing a man’s car is way over the line.

    You are what you eat and the city must of eaten a bunch of a$$holes.

  178. moochzilla says: Jan 11, 2011 11:40 PM

    disco…

    I would not go toe-to-toe with NYC (lived in Village and U W Side) or San Fran, as I consider both world class cities, and my two favorite places to visit. In terms of dining, both are well beyond Philly or Chicago or pretty much anywhere else in the US.

    My take – from having lived in both places – is that Philly is about the same as Boston, in almost every aspect. Working class towns with hard working people of immigrant ancestry. They have great schools, museums, and historical significance. Great neighborhoods, and an under-appreciated dining scene.

    What I observe is that Boston gets more credit for these things, Philly less. A lot of this is because Bostonians leave and spread the word about how awesome Boston is. Philadelphians stay at home. This is due in part to the Puritan Boston (go out and change the world) vs Quaker Philly (stay home and make it better locally) mindset. Boston has GREAT PR, Philly bad PR.

    Ponder….

    Colleges – Wharton is one of, if not the best, business school in the US. Would you agree? The others I noted are – overall- comparable to Boston’s when taken as a whole. Leaving MIT out as that’s in a category all by itself. BC and Villanova are now about as hard to get into – albeit both over-rated. Not that people over-rate Boston, but you knew about Boston’s schools and didn’t know about Philly’s.

    History – Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross, etc are comparable to Boston’s. What separates it here is that the places are tangible. Many of Boston’s – like Bunker Hill or the Freedom Trail – are not actual structures you can walk around in. Not saying its better, just a more tangible experience. But you knew about Boston’s and not Philly’s.

    Culture – The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the nation’s best collections. The Barnes is probably better pound for pound and is being moved into the city. They advertise shows at the PMA in Boston’s metros, as many US exhibitions such as Monet and Dali only came here. The Mutter Museum is a unique place to visit, featuring the oddest collection I’ve seen.

    Architecture – unlike NYC, many buildings from the 1800s remain in place.

    Again, seems to me people think of Philly like I think of Detroit (unfairly as I have never been there), a bombed out hell-hole.

    So I thank you for the opportunity to explain.

    You’re serious with improv in Chicago? C’mon, the architecture sells that city. And the museums. And urban quality of life. You sell it short, my man.

  179. moochzilla says: Jan 11, 2011 11:47 PM

    And I am a big fan of Dreiser and Dos Passos as far as Chicago writers go. But, of course, they were never put in the pantheon of similar talents like Hemingway and Steinbeck.

    Damn right a Redskin fan. I hope you guys enjoyed the game where you scored 59 points. Too bad you couldn’t have borrowed some of those points against Green Bay, huh?

    I could give a damn if we don’t make the playoffs for the next 50 years. We’ll still have 3 more trophies than the City of Brotherly Chokers will ever see.

    Not to mention having a better city than that sh!thole Philthy… better fans than the animals that inhabit the Linc…. better tradition… more HOFers….etc. etc. There’s a reason no other fans respect the Eagles the way they have respect for teams like the Packers, Steelers, 49ers, etc.

    But you guys stick together…. much like prison inmates!

    And yeah….I’m really sad we haven’t made the playoffs in 3 whole years… boy, I think i’d give up those 3 trophies just to have had a one and done on my home field in 2010. LOL.

    You think because you wear a logo on your hooded sweatshirts of a team” its OK, your just a fan but” ask yourself when does it cross the line.
    Will it take a fan getting stomped to death in the parking lot to finally figure out the might need more help over there in Philadelphia. Idiots! You are dealing with classless animals.
    Even Worse is that any Philly fan AND EVERY Philly fan has this on there Fan Resume. You All Are A Waste Of OXYGEN. And They Should Lock All Of You In A Freaking CAGE! (like the one in your stadium.)

    I am sure the fine outstanding fans are back in there row houses talking about how another Filthy sports team got screwed

    Once again in the super bowl era no trophy for the filthy egals only team in the NFC East with out one
    ___________________________
    I’m sure that Mr. Lurie would have no problem paying for the repairs to this guys car…just as soon as Mr. Mara pays for the repairs to all of the cars vandalized by his team’s fans after the Eagles knocked the Giants out of the playoffs a couple years ago. Mr. Lurie’s bill would be a fraction of Mr. Mara’s.

  184. osmocosmo says: Jan 12, 2011 12:18 AM

    Read the article. It was a group of young, drunk punks in a parking lot, a remarkably common occurrence at any public event: vandalism. Happened in Indianapolis and Kansas City this weekend. Happens in every city, every day.

    The difference? Wasn’t Philadelphia fans.

    PFT continues to prove that they don’t care all that much about bringing their readers actual news, they’re much more interested in playing the role of internet schoolgirls. “Another proud moment for Philadelphia sports fans” — seriously?

    Again: read the article. He had a positive experience (as most will, at any stadium, the Linc included) with “friendly banter” — and wait, what’s that you say? He wasn’t beaten to death, despite his Packers gear?

    Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret: aside from the drunken idiots in the parking lot, he had a positive experience because Philadelphia fans are just like every other fan base out there — human.

    These. Things. Happen. EVERYWHERE.

  185. stanklepoot says: Jan 12, 2011 12:20 AM

    @discosucs2005,
    Pretty much everything positive you said about Boston could be equally applied to Philly. Every bit the historical center as Boston. Actually, perhaps more so, seeing as how Philly was one of the original capitals of our country and our nation was actually formed in Philly. Ever hear of the declaration of Independence? It was signed in Independence Hall in Philly. Philly also has it’s own Ivy League University, the University of Pennsylvania. Perhaps you should do a little more research before you post next time. New England (and Boston in particular) may have been the epicenter for the unrest that led to rebellion, but Philly and New York both served as centers of government before the creation of D.C., and both hosted various stages of our nation’s formation.

Patriotism isn’t patriotism when it comes with the stipulation that you always get your way. “Liberal elitists” may complain about some of the things the country has done, but I’ve never heard them talk about trying to overthrow the government or leave it.

    True: Every team has violently drunk and stupid fans at their games, though some teams more than others.

    True: This Packers fan asked for trouble the moment he bought his ticket, though he could’ve never foreseen such violence and he technically has a right to be there.

    True: Philly fans have earned this reputation fairly because of the frequency and ferocity with which they abuse their opposing fans, teams, themselves (death by cheese steak is a hell of a way to go), and even their own team.

    True: The Raiders fans are still the scummiest, trashiest, most worthless people in the history of organized sports.

    Philly fans are up there, but let’s give credit where it’s due, Raider fans should be euthanized or sterilized like stray animals so they don’t spread their criminality and disease to the general public.

    I find it rather rich that some of the Eagles fans posting here trying to fight against their image were shouting bad journalism. The fact is that the negative image of Eagles fans are well deserved.

    Why did I say it was “rich”? Simple. On August 5th, 2007, the Philadelphia Inquirer printed an AP article about the induction speeches made the day before. That morning most of the sports fans across the nation were abuzz about Michael Irvin’s moving speech the night before.

    Only the version of the article printed in the Inquirer had no mention of Irvin whatsoever. The article had been edited to read that Charles Sanders, who played for the Lions, stole the show with his speech, not Irvin!

    The leading newspaper of Philadelphia committed journalistic dishonesty by editing an AP article not written by any of its employees, and omitting any references to a well-known HOF receiver and crediting a less-known (but completely deserving of HOF) player for a show-stealing speech.

    That, to me, is a damning indiction on Philly sports culture. Yeah, stay classy, schmucks!

  200. insider7 says: Jan 12, 2011 4:53 AM

    Excuse me, Mr. Rosenthal. Your suggestion that Boston fans are on a par with the “boorish” behavior of Philly fans is off base.

    Attending Super Bowl 39 in Jacksonville (Patriots-Eagles) was an eye-opener as to how outrageous the Philly fans really were. They were over-the-top with their foul language (even the women, in the presence of young children) and desire to start fighting with anybody who was not cheering the Eagles on. I’ve attended 6 Super Bowls and this was the worst behavior I’ve seen at a Super Bowl, by far. It was much, much worse than anything I’ve seen, even at Yankees-Red Sox games. The Jets fans that I have encountered at NFL games are like choir boys compared to Eagles fans.

    These factual recountings about the Philly fans are widely documented and confirmed by members of the national media who attended Super Bowl 39.

    Even New York fans are better behaved than Philly fans, and that’s saying something (coming from a Boston fan).

  201. gbfanforever says: Jan 12, 2011 7:22 AM

    Hey Philadelphia! Just because someone wears opossing colors does not make it acceptable to trash them or their cars.

    And i’m tired of the one person doesn’t represent all of Philadelphia – its a culture. Drunk people will always be obnoxious however its the fact that no one in Philadelphia is going to stop them from trashing a car that they were allowed to do this.

    Let me tell you something else from my experience having lived in NYC (Manhattan, Bronx), Chicago (Lincoln Park), Boston, and Philly.

    NYC – people are very friendly, but mostly at work. When you live on top of one another, there’s an aversion to getting too close to people across the hall or next door. But the notion of the nasty, grizzled New Yorker is, to me, a total myth. You also tend to only interact with only those who are in the same economic class as you. NYC is diverse, but the busienss world in Manhattan isn’t.

    Boston – if you are not from New England, you’ll never be fully welcomed in. They’re civil to you, but not warm. That’s not a slam, that’s just the way it goes up there. Not much diversity.

    Chicago – all in very friendly (and not necessarily in the cheesy Midwest Nice way), but they tend to keep with the people they’ve known all their lives. Neighborhoods and suburbs are VERY segregated by race and income.

    Philly – when we moved to here the neighbors were very welcoming. They talked to us, they played with our kids. These were new yuppie residents as well as old-school locals who lived on the block for years (and made fun of us for paying so much for our homes there). We had rich neighbors, ones who were struggling, older people on pensions. Of every race.

    That was a major issue for me – and it killed Atlanta. Seemed like any given area was all-white or all-African American. In Philly, everyone mixes.

    Now, that may be my personal unique set of experiences. I’m just telling you that these are the people I’ve met in my travels across a few of the nation’s bigger cities.

    I would love to retire to the Bay Area, but for now I’m staying here.

    And yes, the Eagles game is a rough environment. But it’s the same as Jets, Giants, Browns, Pats, Raiders, etc, etc. NFL Sunday is a drinking event. Let’s be honest. For that reason, I don’t go the games no matter where I live. It’s like St. Patty’s Day and New Year’s Eve – amateur hour – all rolled up into one.

    Another thing about Philadelphia and it’s rich sports history.

    They have a statue of a fictional character (Rocky Balboa) in front of the Art Museum, now that is LAME!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Steps

    ======================================

    It’s lame because that’s where all the tourists flock to. None of the locals go there…

    And why does everyone try to sweep under the rug the horrible behavior of NYG fans? They trashed cars in their stadium parking lot after losing to the Eagles last season. They also taunted Saints fans about Hurricane Katrina when that “home game” was moved to NY.

    First off, I do not condone the actions of what occurred on Sunday night to that Green Bay Packers fan’s vehicle.

    But with that being said it’s completely unfair that this story is being blown up in both local and national news media simply because it occurred in Philadelphia – home of where Santa was ‘supposedly’ hammered by snowballs.

    It’s funny how it’s not brought up how Green Bay Packers’ fans disrespect visiting teams Players, Coaches and fans to Lambeau stadium by throwing rocks, flipping the the bird, cursing, and giving them the Ol’ Lambeau Salute (mooning the visiting team while they leave the parking lot in their team bus.)

    Those actions I just mentioned happen nearly every solitary home game at Lambeau field. And yet, a poor decision by a few drunken Eagles fans have to tarnish our reputation even more.

    It’s just not right and not responsible that the majority of Eagles fans have to be blamed for the mistake of a few drunken idiots.

    In all seriousness, ‘kingdomofeagles’, mooning a bus, and jumping on a Camry filled with a dad and his son are two very different things. I think that comment by you raises the issue; what you consider ‘horsing around’ is actually assault.

  216. moochzilla says: Jan 12, 2011 9:36 AM

    Yeah, the booing of Santa became snowballs at Santa and in a few cases car batteries at Santa.

    Whatever helps a C- writer make his deadline so he can lave at 5pm. No professional pride.

    Funny that the red staters who claim the actions of one Eagles fan implies guilt of ALL Eagles fans (inclusive of something that happened with Santa before I was born).

    Yet those same people would be aghast if you claimed the actions of on gun nut school shooter implied the guilt of ALL gun owners.

    I am a season ticket holder in Philly. There were plenty of GB fans that seemed to be having a great time on Sunday at the game. There were some who had a really bad time though because they couldn’t shut their mouths! If you go to an opposing stadium and talk sh*t and get in people’s faces prepare for a beat down! No excuse to trash a man’s car though.

  218. cindyvvideo says: Jan 12, 2011 10:27 AM

    I went to the Packers-Falcons game the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It was in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. My dad and I wore neutral colors (blue) so that Falcon fans would leave us alone. They did. But there were hundreds of Packer Fans at the game and I would have been comfortable wearing my A-Rod jersey. But Dad was really uncomfortable so I wore blue for him. You pick your fights with your elderly dad and this wasn’t one worth fighting for. Go Pack Go!

    Mr. Rosenthal, I am a Philly fan. As Anthony Gargano would say, I’m four for four. I appreciate your sentiment regarding this man’s car. I’m probably more pissed about it then the owner of the car. I resent being lumped in with those neanderthals. However, your tone suggests that every time something like this happens in Philly, we take the stance that it happens everywhere else too. No, that’s not what we are saying. We are saying that if you are going to be outraged over this, then show your outrage when it happens elsewhere too. Is it that outlandish to expect equal treatment?

    “Wit or witout?”

    “Umm…what?”

    “Get the f—out of here. Next!”

    I grew up an hour from Philly, a lifelong Steeler fan. Dealing with Eagle fans made me hate the Eagles more than any sports franchise, even more than other AFC north rivals. Philly fans are obnoxious and fair weather. No class. Thankfully as a Steeler fan one thing always ends the argument: 6 rings…no rings. Philly, much like Cincy, always brings in idiots(T.O., Vick, Stallworth etc) and just like Cincy you’ll never get over the hump with those types. I love when D. Jackson immediately throws Vick under the bus after the Sunday loss. Beautiful. Jackson epitomizes the franchise and their fan base. I’ll take old, slow Hines Ward over DJax anyday. Have fun coming up short every year Philly. Stay classy.

    hey philly fans, here is an idea why not act like grown ups and not trash other people’s things? why not act civilized, like you were hopefully raised to be? you don’t want the bad rap then do something about it. the reason philly gets mentioned more than any other city is because something seemingly happens there all the time.

    i didn’t read one single philly fan say anything negative regarding the actions of his fellow fans. its sad really that you don’t seem to get it. you don’t play for the team, you’re not a badass and with any luck karma will make you its bitch.

    New York.

    Oakland.

    Ohio State…(seriously…these people are not rational)

    Philadelphia.

    But Philly takes the prize as they are the only ones who’ve managed to combine:

    1. Booing Santa Claus.

    2. Cheering when an opposing player has a significant injury.

    4. Bringing alkaline batteries to a game (now THAT is planning ahead).

    5. Having the only NFL stadium to have it’s own on-site courtroom.

    5. Endorsing and hiring a convicted felon for a QB…c’mon, you’re just reinforcing and encouraging the drunken morons in the stands now…

    Yep…Philadelphia…the undisputed and undefeated champion of asshattery…

    I think its time that the NFL starts to put major fines on teams like this that are repeat offenders of fan violence. Joking around is one thing but harming people or property says that the organization needs to take the proper steps to fix the problem or risk losing the franchise. Scum like this is what gives the Philly fans a bad name. I know many philly fans that hate this behavior and I also know some that love it. Constant problems require action!

    I enjoy those who criticize the Eagles for “giving a felon a job.” If any of you were convicted and needed a job, would they say the same? Maybe that’s a little too personal because you would never do such a horrible thing.

    How about if a family member (child, parent, sibling, etc) was convicted of a crime, came out of prison a changed person, and an employer said “No” simply bc of their criminal history? Would that be ok with you or would you be thankful that someone was willing to give them a second chance? Think.

    @greggyd717:

    Welcome to corporate America, bub…99% of the Fortune 500 jobs will dismiss you immediately for a felony conviction.

    And if the NFL does not rank towards the top of the Fortune 500 companies, I don’t know who does…

    No…”think” before you do the deed…not afterwards…

    Most felony convictions don’t happen because of an “accident”…felonies usually involve “intent” or “criminal negligence”.

    Now…think…

  238. greggyd717 says: Jan 12, 2011 7:44 PM

    Does a Fortune 500 company dismissing someone based on the past justify it and make it alright? It surely makes the employment screening process much easier. However, does that mean that all companies should do it? If one serves the time for the crime committed, he/she has paid their debt and deserves a second chance if someone is willing to give it to them.

    If a company (business, sports, pick your realm of work) decides to take a chance on someone who has paid said debt, then good for them. They shouldn’t be ridiculed for doing so. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie had a long, long meeting with Vick and deemed that he was remorseful and a changed person. Why would the team not hire him if he and the rest of the coaches felt that he would be good for the job? While his actions in the past are inexcusable, by no means should he (or the Eagles) be chastised for their decision.

    I’m with the guy who said that the Eagles should pay for this. Don’t they have parking lot security at these things? How did they make dents in the hood? Did they really jump up and down on the hood and no security saw it?

    I live in Scranton (2 hours North of Philly). I have been to lots of Eagles games. I am at the point now that I actually cringe when I see a poor soul walk in wearing the opposing teams gear. I cringe because I know that unless that person sits there quietly and does not make a sound, they are going to be verbally destroyed by the fans. Even something as small as a fist pump or a clap when their team does something good and they are going to be cursed up and down. It’s pathetic.

    Unfortunately, these poor souls actually bring their young children to the games with them. That’s just dumb. I can’t put it all on the Philly fans. At this point it should be common knowledge that you can’t bring kids to Eagles games.

    Moochzilla,

    We all get that you’re a little insecure about Philly.

    But that doesn’t give you the right to insult Boston by saying it’s like Philadelphia.

    Boston is nothing like Philadelphia.

    I’ll agree with you that Wharton and Sloane are roughly the same. Nothing special. Neither can be mentioned next to HBS.

    Don’t tell. Let me guess. You didn’t get in, right?

    BTW, I looked up Fairmount home prices on Zillow. You’re bragging about that? You’ve got to be kidding. The average looks to be about $400k. For that amount of money most of the people in your neighborhood can just about afford to be homeless in Boston.

    What a load of B.S.

    I have been to Lambeau several times, and despite the fact that all liquor laws are suspended on Game Day, I have yet to see a fist fight, wanton vandalism or degenerate behaviour from anyone there. While the locals may engage in some good-natured ribbing, they depend on the money that football brings into their state and treat all visiting fans with respect.

    On the other hand, we shared a taxi with a couple from Philly for the 2007 Lambeau Field home opener. He was an Eagles fan while his wife was a Packers fan. During the ride over, the woman remarked that she could not believe “how nice” the people of Green Bay are. Both her and her husband stated that had she wore her Green Bay sweater to a game in Philly, she would have been verbally abused and “spit on”. They both said that fans of opposing teams simply aren’t welcome at the Linc.

    I personally have never been to Philly, but judging on what others have told me, you lot have a reputation for a reason. Some of the comments on here from the Eagles fanbase stating this guy “deserved it” because he was a Packers fan, and that if you “roll up in somebody else’s house sporting the wrong gear” you “shouldn’t cry” after being abused doesn’t exactly make me chomp a the bit to go there. The city sounds like a Class A ghetto and the people there sound like lowlife degenerates. Then again, what do you expect from a fanbase that embraces a sociopathic, VD spreading ex-con QB simply because he wins a couple football games?

I don’t think hes that good but his play has nothing to do with why I hate him. I’m an animal lover, and what he did was a sickness. It is a sickness. I only pray he bleaps up again before we sign him.I didn’t want my 1st SB to be with him at the helm. So please stop saying we all like this guy. I have no class and throw whatever at opposing fans but I do not like R.Mexico aka DOG KILLER aka Mike Vick. Now please call me/us classless, snow ball throwing, santa haters. Thank You
