This is such BS. You can be a fan from another team. Be respectful. You’ll be fine.

Have you been to a game there AW? Hell, they fight with each other never mind other fans. There weren't 2 judges and a jail right in the Vet just for laughs. It's better inside the Linc now but the parking lots are just as bad as they were before. The tailgates start at 7:00 AM in the lots that allow grills so you can imagine what shape they are in by game time. The reputation of Philly fans is well deserved. You've got to use your head when you go to one of these games.

Steve Erban , the tour operator says with a dead serious look of concern:
"The first thing you better understand is...you are in foreign territory."
"Do not be 'over inebriated' (sic-this passes for English in Minneapolis) because they will be." (And that means certain death for 'outsiders)

Rob Olson, the newsman in the airport, is also dead serious about his warning.
Clearly , the chances of a visitor returning in one piece from an Eagles' home game, are next to zero.

A couple genuine assholes.



True story. It's just a sample of one but the irony here is entertaining:

In the 16 years we've been spending our Winters in Florida, we've become acquainted with other Snow Birds from all over the northern US and Canada. There's a group of up to 16, give or take, who frequently socialize. Moderate alcohol consumption, cordiality and good humor is the consistent ethos among the group, whether it's during the day on the beach, on a big party boat or at some evening get together. With one notable exception. One guy, after a few drinks, almost invariably starts an argument and grows increasingly hostile. Never any punches thrown...not even close It's not that kind of crowd. He just spoils things for others. His antics usually end in ruining the evening for his wife (who spends much of her life apologizing for him) and sometimes, if it's in a restaurant, for all of us.

The point of all this... again, an unrepresentative sample of one...he's a big Vikings fan from the lake country in Minnesota.

I'd say that he probably shouldn't go to the game then.

No 6 he definately SHOULD go. Sounds like he needs a good ass kicking.

Be respectful and remember where you are. Come in acting like you own the place and playing the total ass, it’s gonna get ugly.
