The Philadelphia fans are known for being extremely rude and violent. There are no "neutral/away" sections in the NFL so you will be around them. It may be best to dress impartially to avoid fights or having beer spilled on you. Just be aware of your surroundings and avoid large groups of unsupervised Eagle fans in the Parking areas.



This is one of the more entertaining things I have read on here in awhile....extremely violent? be aware of your surroundings? avoid large groups of unsupervised Eagle fans? hahahhahahahahahahahhahahahaha Good stuff.

Much of the rude treatment people get in opposing stadiums is brought on by themselves. Sure you can come up against a drunk or rowdy fan or a group of folks looking to stir things up but my experience in most stadiums is if you are respectful to them most of them will be respectful to you. Philly is a blue collar town where the fans take their football seriously and they are die hard fans. They love their Eagles and will talk junk. If you are alone and talk a bunch of smack back, the situation will escalate. But if you are with some Eagle fans and don't act like a jerk, most folks will treat you okay. If the Panthers win you shouldn't gloat because honestly that makes any home fan mad. If the Eagles win expect some ribbing and comments. After all you are in their stadium and need to act accordingly. But as Johnny Rockets said, it isn't the Vet and there are much better security measures in and around the stadium.

Fortunately i'm not from North Carolina and would never go to a shithole like Philadelphia. Hopefully for the good man from Italy he will catch the game and the 1st flight out of town.


Fortunately???Ha

yeah okay? Where are you from?

I've been to 47 states, NC is Top 5 hands down....sorry your state sucks....

Fortunately for us you're a Redskins fan....Why are you here again?

Philadelphia may not be the prettiest city, but it's sure as hell a better city than Baltimore and DC...

HOLY SH*T. The Huddle, supposed to be full of the best Panther fans around, is encouraging NOT wearing Panthers' gear to an away game? F*K the A HOLES in Philly, represent your team. This is why we get punked when teams like the Eagles and the Steelers come to Carolina. You act like a bunch of GOD DAMN 9 YEAR OLD GIRLS SOMETIMES. Fine, why don't one of you guys send him a warm sweater and I nice Chianti he can tailgate with.

What your saying is you would renounce the Panthers under threat of a beer (which the stupid philly fan probably paid 8 bucks for) being poured on your head? How many times do I have to call you fatty before I get your lunch money?

Hey guys, i was come back yesterday from my USA trip, finally this time was a NFL oriented trip! it was Amazing, i've seen 3 NFL Games, ( Colts@NE, Panthers@Phila and Pittsburgh@Baltimore)

cause of what i read here, i didnt know if wear or not my Carolina Jersey, but at the end i decided to wear it, and there were no problems at all... when i arrived to the stadium in my mind was thinking " im the only Panthers fan tonight!" but once i was inside i've seen a pair of people with Smith Jersey, so i make a pic with one of them... while we were doing it, 2 other guys came to us and said " here we go, here we go, we come out with a W tonight!" they were right!!!!

once i arrived to my seat near me were 2 guys that look me in a strange way, but after the first touchdown they give me 5, and in front of me there were 2 other people with Newton's Jersey... so i was in a sort of little group of Panthers Fan!

i was in row 16 on the 40, and was behind the Panthers Sideline, so once the game was nearly finish, Smith start talking to some people near me with Carolina Jersey, and he saw me lift my arm and respond me! it was a really good emoction for me! he is my idol since i start watching Football!

at the end i was so happy about all, right when i bought tickets i hoped for a game between 2 teams fighting for a PO spot, and watching Cam vs Vick, but what really matter was the W, and we got it!

it was so strange how u live ur stadium, i mean in Italy its completely different, u cant put home fans n away fans in same place or u get a Fight every game! i really like this experience, like the Trash Talk during the game too with other fans it was cool!

hope next time i can come to Bank of America Stadium, maybe for a PO game!

ps: sorry for the english, porbably i made some mistake

That is awesome! Great to hear some positive experiences from an international Panther fan, not too many good stories these days on the Huddle. Glad you enjoyed and I hope you get to make it to Bank of America Stadium in the future.

Glad you had fun, and got to see the Panthers win. You should have started some Italian football chants. The environment for those games is something we should aspire to here.
