“Eagles fans are the people who get into fights at an eight-year-old girl’s T-ball game, possibly with the eight-year-old girl (Meltzer)”. Being an Eagles fan for my whole life, I can agree with that statement. In some peoples’ views, Eagles fans are the scariest fans in the NFL, but statistically, they are number five. The Philadelphia Eagles fans are the scariest and most passionate fans.
They are also the scariest fans in the NFL, and I personally have experienced it. Back in 2006 when Terrell Owens left the team, I wore one of his jerseys to the game. Keep in mind I was 7 years old at the time, and a group of Eagles fans came over and started yelling at me because I had one of his jerseys on. Terrell Owens was not the best teammate and he was not a nice guy, but they still should not have harassed me because I was wearing his jersey.
The Eagles fans are a different breed of fans. When the Eagles won their first Superbowl, there was a parade hosted in Philadelphia. 700,000 people (including me) attended it, which was a once in a lifetime experience. The one thing that influenced all the fans was Jason Kelce’s speech. He basically talked about the Eagles being an underdog in all three games leading to the Superbowl. Even though they were underdogs in all three games, they still won all of them.
The Eagles fans are the most passionate fans in the NFL, but also the scariest fans, because they start fights with other teams and occasionally with the same team. The passionate part of the fans overpowers the scariness of them because 700,000 fans came to support the Eagles after they won the Superbowl. Jason Kelce’s and Nick Fole’s speech emphasized on the fans of Philly and how great we are. By far, that overcomes the scary part of the fans. The fans of the Philadelphia Eagles are the scariest fans and the most passionate fans in the NFL today. I learned after I saw the fight occur that it is very stupid to get in a fight with someone else over a football game, especially with your own team.
