Because it's was a rarity for them...there have been many things that have happened here since the 30 years you mentioned,whatever that means. The throwing snowballs at Santa was just symbolic of their nasty attitudes...the pelting of batteries,having a jail on premises,the 2008 Phillies riots,fans beating up/vomiting on others and generally repelling fans from visiting teams are just a few that come to mind.

Does the department of tourism in Philadelphia pay you to post on this site?

Soooo it is a rarity for other cities but not for Philly?! HAHAHA what a double standard!

Throwing snowballs at Santa? Like I said, that was over 30 years ago. Come to modern times man.

Nasty attitudes? Don't all sports fans? Have you ever seen Football (soccer) fans in Europe? If you think Philly fans were bad you would cry and whimper in the corner my friend.

All across the world sports fans are like that. Where have you been? Why is this something only unique to Philly? Why so many double standards?

I will agree Eagles fans are nasty. Even Flyers fans can be nasty... but I am a Phillies fans first and foremost and I find the fans to be extremely tame and calm. In all the games I have been to, aside from fans booing other teams fans (and most of them jokingly, and which all sports fans do in every stadium across the country), I have only had one bad experience. 4 people were being loud and obnoxious and drunk. One bad experience.

Pelting of batteries? Again. Over 30 years ago man.

Having a jail on the premises? Most football stadiums do. Look it up. You're not very knowledgeable of this stuff.

2008 Phillies riots. No team won in Philly in over 20 years, are you serious right now? That would happen in most cities. You consider that bad fans? You're absurd and afraid of the world

Fans fighting? Where does that not happen? Fans fight everywhere.

Vomiting on each other? I heard of this happening once. How is this not a rarity? It is now a norm? HAHAHA. What a joke.

Repelling visiting team members? What fans don't?
Nationals "Take Back The Park" From Phillies Fans, Give It Right Back To Them

You have so many double standards. It is such a joke. Have Philadelphia fans gotten rowdy before? Absolutely. Are they any more rowdy then Dallas, New York, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, LA fans? Absolutely not.

So people can post anything they want about bad fan behavior in Philly but I can't post something about other sports teams fans?! HAHAHA. You're too funny. You think there aren't rowdy fans in Dallas, NYC, Boston, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, etc. etc. etc.? Funny.

Last time I went to a phillies game it was about as pleasant and family like as it could be... The one thing I noticed about sports in Philly is it is a bigger deal in the suburbs.
