Re: NFL Discussion thread
It's actually sad to me, and I am a die hard, born and raised philly sports fan (minus the 76ers, because the NBA is a joke)...but I have to agree for the most part. I go to maybe on eagles game a year, and it can be ugly. I truly believe that the old school fans gained the reputation for being tough fans, and now the younger generation (the kids that just now are able to drink legally) takes it to a higher level because they feel like they have to or have the right to do so because they are eagles fans.

The whole time, he never heard a single thing from the other Flyers fans around us...even when the Caps scored. But the same can't be said for anyone walking into Philly wearing a Crosby jersey!! Haha.
