Vikings’ Fans are Scared of Eagles’ Fans

The Star-Tribune did an article about Sun Country airlines adding an extra flight to Philly from Minneapolis in case people wanted to make the trek to Philly and “paint the town purple” while watching the Eagles win. They also gave some travel tips like Tony Luke’s, Chickie’s & Pete’s, and Oregon Steaks. The comments section of this article is the real story here.

It’s basically a slamfest of Philly fans that I tend to take as more complimentary than disparaging. These folks make Eagles fans out to be a rabid, violent mob. They are frightened by the Philly fan reputation and it’s a wonderful thing. They are scared and I like it that way. We need as few of them as possible in the building on Sunday. Check out some of these comments.  Oh, and props to aceman0 for trolling the fanbase.

aceman0 Went to 3 Eagles games at the Vet.  Never had a problem.  Quite an enjoyable experience.

Oh wait, I’m a 40 years Eagles fan living in Minnesota. LOL

Truckman182 I attended a Vikings game at the Vet. My advice to Vikings fans is don’t go. I should have left right away when I saw a guy in a Joey Browner Jersey get thrown down the stairs then pummeled. Philly is no place to wear purple and not expect to be harassed constantly. Go at your own risk.

Howlinjags one thing you can expect – philly fans will be hostile and abusive.   the bigger group you come with the better and sitting in move expensive seats a good choice   I was a season ticket holder in upper deck end zone for 7 years – I’m speaking from consistent observation

mnturbo @howlinjags 100% they are pretty terrible

markpalmen @howlinjags – You have that right!  I last went to Philly for the playoff game in 2004 and will NEVER go there again. The fans are very hostile before the alcohol kicks in, which it always does, and security just lets it happen. A city that put a magistrate and a jail in a stadium knows that there is a problem.

UpNorthLakes Let’s get Rowdy in Philly!! Skol!

Delusiondog @UpNorthLakes  Try it and see how that works out for you!

Flicka1492 Prepare to get mugged and punched in the face, not necessarily in that order. Philly is a dump.

Michelin33 @Flicka1492 Wow, I thought folks from Minnesota were nicer and classier than to make such comments as I’ve seen on this thread. Silly me, I guess I was just stereotyping…

Morg @Michelin33 Stereotypes exists for a reason: because they’re based on truth. Google philly santa snowballs.

Mnturbo @Michelin33 @Flicka1492 Seriously Phily fans scare me, they will not be nice to the Purple

thom1056 I would think that any advice about attending a game in Philly as a visiting fan would include information about subjecting yourself to the abuse you’ll likely experience. I’m not saying don’t go, but people should know to be prepared. Skol!

Squarn @thom1056 Agree. City of brotherly love….not!

Chasgoodnite @squarn @thom1056 City of Brotherly Shove.

3 observations. 1. Minnesotans are terrible at creating commenter handles. 2.These fans are the softest group of Vikings I’ve ever heard of. 3. Coming into the Linc wearing their purple would go against the basic principles of “Minnesota Nice.”

Fly Eagles Fly.
