The Best Fans In The Country

Philadelphia fans always describe themselves at the “best fans in the country.” That may be accurate if Philadelphia was a country. Everyone else in America, and the world, know Philly fans – especially Eagles fans – are mostly drunken, white trash thugs.

Don’t believe me? Read on

Sixers forward Mike Scott may be loved by Philadelphians, but he is a Washington Redskins fan and found out on Sunday that supporting his favorite NFL team is not that easy to do in Philly.

Scott organized a tailgate to hang out with some Eagles fans at the team’s home opener and he wore a Redskins jersey. At the tailgate, an alleged fight broke out between Scott and some Eagles fans at Lincoln Financial Field. It was all apparently caught on video (which includes NSFW language and graphic content).

The Philadelphia 76ers have released a statement regarding the altercation: “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information. We will have no further comment at this time.”

So Scott, a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, hung out with Eagles fans for some reason, and they decided to fight him because he was wearing the “wrong” jersey. Yep, best fans in the world.

I swear to Vishnu, I am out of this city and out of this state the moment I retire.

  1. Ronni – Rabid is fine. Violent? Not so much. The irony here is you can wear an Eagles jersey in Dallas and no one bats an eye. If the roles were reversed, the bats come out.
