Lions fan claims he was beaten by Eagles fans

According to,  a Detroit Lions fan claims that some Eagles fans beat him following this past Sunday’s game at Lincoln Financial Field.

A Michigan native who has lived in Philadelphia for two years says he was harassed and beaten unconscious by a group of Eagles fans outside Lincoln Financial Field after the Eagles’ 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

The 33-year-old Center City business owner, who spoke on condition that he not be identified, said a half-dozen men in Eagles gear targeted him – first with snowballs and other projectiles, then with fists and kicks – because of his Lions jersey and ball cap.

The man, who lives in Bella Vista with his fiancee, said he was treated at a hospital Monday for a concussion and minor injuries. He said doctors also examined him for internal injuries after he urinated blood Sunday.

Capt. Laurence Nodiff, commander of South Detectives, said detectives took the man’s statement Monday morning and were searching for surveillance footage that might have captured the alleged beating.

Glad he’s OK.  Not a surprise that this happened in Philly.  They don’t have the greatest reputation as a fan base.
