Philadelphia Fans Fight in First Game Back2 min read
The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional American football team based in Philadelphia. The Eagles compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) East division.
In the 2017 season, the team won Super Bowl LII, their first Super Bowl win in franchise history and their fourth NFL title overall, after winning the Championship Game in 1948, 1949, and 1960. The team consistently ranks among the best in the league in attendance and has sold out every game since the 1999 season. The team’s fan base have been cited as one of the most intimidating in the NFL and possibly all of sports.
Eagles fans were throwing violent haymakers at each other while breaking every COVID-19 protocol in the book during Philly’s loss to Baltimore on Sunday. It is unclear what prompted the massive brawl in the stands at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly, but the fight was insane. A man in a Carson Wentz jersey climbed down about 10 rows of seats to get to another man and he let the punches go as soon as he got in striking range. The two traded blows for a few seconds, when suddenly another man came into the melee and started throwing bombs of his own!
Other fans were eventually able to break up the scrum and, fortunately, despite the violence, nobody appeared to be too injured. The Eagles had just been given the green light to allow a very limited number of people to attend Sunday’s game, and protocols stated fans were supposed to stay in their pods, wear masks and social distance at all times. But, Philly is gonna be Philly even in a pandemic. Let’s just be happy no police horses were punched in the face this time. Come on, people be safe!
