It just shows you the level of intelligence of these mentioned fans. Only an idiot would waste a $9 beer to dump on someone.

You've got to realize though that a lot of these fan bases are poor, depressed, and disgruntled. Just add alcohol.

Yes...kick ass game.

A non-American in a panther jersey in philly sounds like suicide.

It's Philly. Most of the white people there are Italian anyway.

You will be fine, wear the Jersey. The reason people have problems is because they are assholes to begin with. Be a humble visitor and have fun with it.

I've seen many of our redneck fans starting poo with visitors for no reason too. I've seen them pour beer on visitors for no reason, and knock drinks and food out of their hands. I saw one asshole agree to trade jerseys with a Pats fan and then just grab the guys Jersey and throw it off the ramp and run away.

He is probably used to attending Soccer games which make even the craziest football game look like a church picnic.

Did you hear the one about the Eagles fan who gagged himself and threw up on a teenage girl sitting in front of him simply because she was wearing a Giants jersey? Don't think I've heard of that happening anywhere else.

How about the youtube vid of the Cardnials fans getting escorted out of Lincoln Financial Field because Eagles fans were throwing snowballs at them... they were minding their own business watching the game and were getting pelted in the head with snowballs to the point that the police feared for their safety and escorted them out.

I'm not saying anything of these things will happen to you if you show up at an Eagles game wearing the opposing team's jersey, but why pay good money to attend a game in a place where stuff like this happens on a regular basis?

To the OP, I hope you have a great time and wish you luck in getting those autographs... I think you should wear your jersey if you want, I just want to make sure you understand what you may be getting yourself into.

GQ ranked them the worst fans in America. But by all means don't take my advice....

Ah, excellent point. Because when I seek intelligent sports commentary my most trusted source is the Gentleman's Quarterly.

Guys with no sense of style read that bullshit and then go and drop $400 on a brown belt to wear with black shoes. It's not as bad as MAXIM but it still pollutes your mind.

I went to the opener in AZ last year with my girlfriend, and to my surprise the fans there were some of the worst I've ever dealt with. Philly is probably twice as worse but I had multiple guys want to fight me every time I would freak out after a touchdown, I had a "Yes We Cam" sign that I got trash talked about the entire time with some of the lamest jokes I've ever heard.

One fan even tried to tear it in half but there was no fuging way that was going down. I had a drunk dude smack me with his rally towel in the head so I grabbed it and tossed it as far as I could. And after the game, I watched two Cardinal fans beat eachother to a bloody pulp until being tazed.

People are absolutely nuts, but you just gotta stand up for yourself. Don't let some drunk dumbass take away from cheering your heart out for your team.
