Fight leads to charges at McCoy charity softball game

Alcohol and sports don’t mix.  Even when the sport is a meaningless charity softball game.

Though we don’t know whether the combatants were consuming alcohol, a pair of men were cited for disorderly conduct after fighting at LeSean McCoy’s charity softball game.

If they weren’t consuming alcohol, the incident would go from being quite lame to completely pathetic.

According to PennLive.com, two men were separated by police, ejected from the game, and ticketed.  One man was left bloody, with one of those pro wrestling forehead cuts that bleeds enough to make the guy look like Carrie.

The cut was described as “minor” (i.e., it happened to someone else), and the man was treated at a local hospital.

Since it’s exactly six months to Christmas Eve, it makes sense to point out that the fans who fought at a charity softball game are from the same fan base that once booed the man who has risked getting much worse than a minor scalp laceration when invading homes worldwide.

    My Sierra Nevada during a 49ers game objects to your opening statement counselor.

    Seriously, Lancaster, Pa hardly ever gets anyone famous here & this is how we act when someone does come, SMH! !!

    Both men were trying to steal money from the collection box at the same time, and an altercation resulted.

    I REALLY wish people would drop the “they booed Santa” BS, even the guy who played Santa that day said it wasn’t a big deal…

    Correction: Alcohol and idiots don’t mix. Alcohol and sports go together just fine. A hundred thousand sports bar owners can’t be wrong.

    They were obviously arguing on who the starter should be clearly.

    Maybe next year McCoy will appoint Roger Goodell as Safety Commissioner for the event. Goodell can then bank on his success of a perfect score on his incident report card when he makes his bid to be POTUS:

    “I was the first guy to have zero complaints filed during this event, in fact not even one person ever sipped a beer. I said there will be no alcohol at this charity event and poof it was gone like magic. That was me that took the lead then and it is me that takes the lead now to make America the safest country in the world now that we all know how much money there is in this safety business. I mean we’re doing the right thing and some money flows around in convenient directions, so it makes sense and nothing else to really say about this natural phenomenon of how moral and ethical guidelines have an effect on what happens with various cash piles.”

    How original with the booing Santa line

  11. pflynn20 says: Jun 24, 2013 7:50 PM

    The Santa Claus reference again! Yea that only happened 45 years ago.

  12. 12strikes says: Jun 24, 2013 7:55 PM

    wow a Santa reference. that’s some in-depth investigative reporting. hope you did not burn to many sources for that information.

  13. skulman7 says: Jun 24, 2013 8:03 PM

    Hugely successful event where McCoy got over 5,000 fans to show up to support ALS research and the two articles that stem from it are:

    1. McCoy doesn’t care who’s the QB
    2. Two people (out of 5000+) got in a fight.

    smh

    It’s hilarious to watch Philly fans get so burnt over Santa references. lol But they so have a point if you stop to think about it, there is soooo much more to the terrible fan behavioral history of Philadelphia fans.

    The Michael Irving cheer which was horrendous.
    Fans intentionally throwing up on other fans kids.
    The judge on duty during games at the old Vet, along with the jail IN the stadium.

    On second thought, Philly fans should be happy for the reference to Santa, looking at some of their other performances the booing Santa game is probably one of their better behaved Sundays.

  15. 4thqtrsaint says: Jun 24, 2013 8:20 PM

    Well at least we know McCoy doesn’t care who started the fight.

  16. dwats says: Jun 24, 2013 8:25 PM

    Insert 50 year old battery throwing joke and Santa booing reference here.

  17. lindakink says: Jun 24, 2013 8:53 PM

    really? still talking about santa Claus?

  18. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 24, 2013 9:03 PM

    One of them challenged McCoy to a race. The other one was the president of shady’s fanclub. Fisticuffs ensued.

  19. icdogg says: Jun 24, 2013 9:13 PM

    I’m sure the only place that drunks ever get into a fight is in Philadelphia. Every other city never has problems like that.

  20. b3nz0z says: Jun 24, 2013 9:21 PM

    Oh good one, the Santa thing!

  21. youcantmakemepickausername says: Jun 24, 2013 9:27 PM

    Who is Michael Irving?

  22. narfmoo12 says: Jun 24, 2013 9:37 PM

    Browns fans throw glass beer bottles, Yankees fans spit on Cliff Lee’s wife. Detroit fans start the malice at the palace, Toronto fans mock “Boston Strong” … Clearly a 50 year old incident about Philly is the worst.

  23. revskip says: Jun 24, 2013 9:38 PM

    The Santa thing is a microcosm of how hostile Philly fans are.

    I saw a Giants/Eagles game at the Linc a few years ago with my wife. Thankfully the fans directly behind us were pretty cool and just razzed us a bit but guys three or four rows back eventually ended up fighting with the guys right behind us because they thought the guys behind us were treating us too well. They ended up getting into a fist fight over it. My wife and I still laugh about it.

    There are overly violent fans in every stadium and fights between fans of the home and visiting team do unfortunately happen, but Philly is the one place where I have seen the home team fans fighting themselves.

  24. narfmoo12 says: Jun 24, 2013 9:42 PM

    Oh yeah, LA fans beat a Giants fan into a coma. The raiders and 49ers can’t play a preseason game because of violence. I guess Philly is the worst.

    Between you and Craig, you make me really like Kurt Helin more than I should….

    Lets kick each others asses.

    For charity!

    Now he’s just f’n with us. lol

  29. 4thqtrsaint says: Jun 24, 2013 11:10 PM

    Yes, we’re still talking about Santa Clause… Just like every Saints article has “Drew Brees wants an explanation”, “Bagheads”, “Aints” and “Bountygate cheaters”. If you haven’t learned by now, everything your team does will be held against them & you. Ahhh, the life of a die hard. ;)

  30. tinbender2000 says: Jun 24, 2013 11:14 PM

    @clk320cpe; I’m from Oakland, I thought all stadiums had jails and courtrooms. And yes I’m serious.

  31. eagles512 says: Jun 24, 2013 11:16 PM

    Great new joke-only 50 years old.

  32. eagles512 says: Jun 24, 2013 11:19 PM

    Clk, the Irvin thing is misconstrued. Deion Sanders was doing some weird dance around him and most were booing him. There are some bad eagles fans but I’ve been to games in other passionate cities (Northeast) ad it’s the same.

  33. umainebearman says: Jun 24, 2013 11:21 PM

    “Correction: Alcohol and idiots don’t mix.” Philly fans, the idiot is implied.

  34. orivar says: Jun 24, 2013 11:32 PM

    You have people getting shot and stabbed in recent times at other stadiums yet people still like to use the Santa Scenario that happened OVER FIFTY YEARS AGO.

    It’s old, fifty years old, is not a major incident in history and makes anybody that attempts to legitimately use it as stupid.

    “Fans intentionally throwing up on other fans kids.”

    Talk about hyperbole as it wasn’t fans, it was one guy who promptly received a beat down because of it. Anything else that needs to be dissected?

  35. seaeagle707 says: Jun 25, 2013 1:08 AM

    A right jolly old elf………..until he got to Philthydelphia anyway. Then, he got mugged, beat up, shot at, and had his sleigh jacked. All of that was in the parking lot at the Linc, mind you.

    And to this day kiddies all over the City of Brotherly Affection still wonder why they only get anthracite in their stockings.

    To this day Eagles fans still haven’t learned the lessons of good karma and bad karma, which is why rings continue to elude them.

    And to all a good night…….

  36. nutsacker says: Jun 25, 2013 1:23 AM

    Michael Irvun sucks. I’d boo him afain if I ever got the chance

  37. unex9885 says: Jun 25, 2013 6:02 AM

    They should have fought the lady outside with the “Dog killers not welcome, Vick go home” sign…. what an idiot, get over it.

    First off, your Michael Irvin reference is way off, they cheered a big hit from a back up safety (Tim Hauck), when Irvin stayed down the stadium got quiet until Deion decide he needed attention and started doing a rain dance around Irvin on the field, which brought a well deserved cascade of boos, not the cheers that the Philly haters have changed it to.
    Secondly, as bad as our behavior is, we are not the city that had fans run on the field and assault a coach, or murder an opposing fan in the parking lot. Hate all you want, but at least keep it real!

  39. 1trinieagle says: Jun 25, 2013 10:31 AM

    All y’all non Philly fans can kiss where the sun don’t shine… KEEP HATING, we don’t care, Shi# Happens, we love our teams passionately, when we wear or teams colors it is not intended to be a FASHION STATEMENT hahahahaha.

    All teams suffer drunks and disorderly conduct, and y’ea, ” be afraid when you come to Philly.” hahahaa” be intimidated by our fan support for our teams and be SILENT.” hahahaha.

    The few fans that reflect negatively on our teams are dealt with by the law and other Philly fans. we are not all bullies or criminals…Call us FANATICAL about our teams, call us Passionate, but don’t call us INDIFFERENT. Flyers, Eagles, Sixers, Phillies for life. hahahhaa.

  40. markcycy says: Jun 25, 2013 11:32 AM

    how bout the beer bottles in cleveland. or the father and son tandem that beat up the first base coach. Fans from everywhere act like idiots. it is not just one fan base but every fan base has done something stupid
