Brawl breaks out among tailgating Eagles fans hours before kickoff

The NFC Championship Game is a couple hours away, but we already have some hitting in the parking lots.

Tailgating Eagles fans brawled outside Lincoln Financial Field, requiring Philadelphia police officers and Pennsylvania State troopers to break it up, NJ.com reports. One fan with blood streaming down his face was handcuffed and led away.

It was unclear what led to the fight. Reporters on the scene said everyone involved appeared to be wearing Eagles gear, so it did not seem to be a matter of fights erupting between fans of rival teams, as happens too often at NFL games.

There is no immediate word on how many fans were arrested.

  1. Eagles fans are trash. No excuse for the hooligan mentality and behavior. I turned down a promotion and huge pay increase simply because there was no way I would move my family to FILTHadelphia.

    The Kardashians even have more class than Eagles fans,. They are an embarrassment to the whole darn league…..and to civilization. Pathetic at every level

  2. “Reporters on the scene said everyone involved appeared to be wearing Eagles gear.”

    They turn on their OWN!! Idiots!!

  3. The problem with Eagles fans is that they can’t handle their alcohol. They’re all lightweights.

  4. “I turned down a promotion and a huge pay increase simply because there was no way I would move my family to FILTHadelphia.

    Impossible, you would have to had a job in the first place.

  5. I guess there is a reason Minny fans were given instructions on how to not get beat up if they made the trip. You know it’s crazy when fans fight their own tailgaters and the police are applying cooking grease to lamp-posts. lol

  6. 1. The Census ACS 1-year survey reports that the median household income for the Minneapolis-St Paul-Bloomington Minnesota metro area was $73,231 in 2016, the latest figures available.

    2. Median household income in Philadelphia, PA is $41,233.

    Violence is an economic issue. SKOL VIKINGS.

    “… have had to grease younger family members to keep Viking fans off their cousins.”

    I’m not sure you’ve really thought that statement/joke out.

  8. I’m a Packers fan and cannot stand the Vikings but I’m okay with them winning with seeing this. What a disgrace and it will only get worse. Kudos to the morons who got arrested. I hope they paid a mint for tickets and I hope they don’t see the game while in the pokey.

  9. There is no disputing the tackiness of the Eagles fan. I’ve seen it first hand and it’s pathetic.

  10. I think it’s more of an East Coast thing. People in that neck of the woods just have bad attitudes to begin with, and apparently can’t control their emotions.

  11. You know. Up here in the NFC north, we have some pretty good tailgating. Vikings fans have picked up their game when it comes to that. But you wanna see some serious tailgating, go to Green Bay. Philly, this is directed towards you. Green Bay fans tailgate way better than anyone. And they don’t have any issues or problems. Philly fans make this a disgrace. There needs to be a line drawn between passionate, and stupid. Green Bay, passionate. Philly, stupid.

  12. Eagles fans are idiots. Either they can’t handle alcohol or have other drug issues. The sewer that is Philly probably means its drug fueled.

  13. Why can’t eagles fans act like vikings fans:

    Officers charged a 40-year-old Lakeland, Minn., man with felony substantial battery after the 3:36 p.m. incident. They arrested the man after bystanders described him to police. Police radio broadcasts during the incident said authorities were seeking a man wearing a purple sombrero.
    Every fan base has losers!

  14. The Vikings use a state of the art system to control rowdy fans. Two seasons ago, that reporting system caught male fans urinating in their seats and on each other. When an officer went to get them under control, he was slapped in the face after slipping in their urine. In another case that same season, cops caught some people smoking pot in their seats and when they didn’t want to leave they started spitting at police.

    Stay Classy Vikings fans….keep pointing the finger…lol

  15. I predict eventually stadiums will have to stop allowing tailgating parties because of all the idiots who get drunk and start acting stupid. What person in their right mind could feel safe taking their family to a game anymore?
