You forgot the wink smile or razz to let us know you were joking.

I agree. I'm an Eagles fan, but I'm OK with the Steelers....I'll root for them as long as they're not playing the Eagles.

Hmm, not so sure you want to wear any jersey other than an Eagles jersey. I have seen alot worse then jusy heckling. I watched a Giants fan being dragged down the steps at the Linc 200 level, and Ive seen alot of beer poured on a female that was in a Packers jersey. Wasnt it Vick's mom that was abused in Philly also.

I am NOT a season ticket holder, however I attend at least a game a year, and made every home playoff game since the Vet except the Viking game before we won the championship. I am able to say I froze my ass off but finally got to see the Eagles make it after all the money I spent seeing them lose year after year.

Sorry I got off base.

Dont do it

I've been going to Eagles games for 20 years and have never witnessed any trouble....not even a fight. Granted, I've never sat in the 700 level for Eagles games (been up there for Phils games), usually had 200 level seats at the Vet and have sat in the club seats for a few games at the Linc, but I have sat in the 500 level at the Vet for Eagles games and don't remember anything bad happening. Not to say that there's no drunken knuckleheads around, but I think the claims of opposing fans being harrassed and having things thrown at them and beer poured on them are rare and are the exception rather than the rule. I have seen fans of the opposing team (including Dallas fans) at every game I've gone to and they had no problems.

Default did everyone forget the stadium courts???

Wasn't it just a few years ago that courts were set up at the stadium to arraign Eagles' fans for severe fighting? And wasn't it Eagles fans that attacked a child? Or was it Flyers fans?

GO STEELERS!!!

No it was Clinton Portis' mom a couple of seasons ago when the Skins made the playoffs. I believe it was the last game of the regular season.
