Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin told the media today that there was a section of fans at last week’s game at Lincoln Financial Field that were yelling vile things towards some of the players and coaches.
“Really, I was speaking to … during the game there was a good section of fans chanting some of the most vile things I’ve ever heard,” Babin said, per CSNPhilly.com. “Not just at a football game, but in life, in general. Talking about attacking Coach (Andy Reid), talking about people’s wives and kids and chanting them. And I just thought there was no place for that in the NFL, none whatsoever.
“Just some of the foul things people were saying. Yeah, I’m gonna be protective of Coach Reid, Coach Wash and my teammates. It was upsetting that a few bad apples were chanting that kind of stuff, but what are you going to do?”
Babin says he never heard anything like it in his life.
“I’ve never heard — listen, I don’t want to even repeat what I heard, it was that bad,” he said. “And I’ve got a pretty high threshold for adult jokes, to give you an idea of what they’re saying.”
All I can say is, welcome to Philly Jason. Eagles fans have a reputation of being some of the most classless fans in football with the things they say and do at football games.
Fans from opposing teams usually don’t dare to go to a game at the Linc because of how often they start fights.
