I don't doubt that Philly has a LOT of fans that take it too far...it's one of the reasons I'm a Ravens fan. And it definitely is a dangerous place due to a recurrence of incidents. But I was responding to that guy, and let's be honest, similar to this incident, every fanbase on HF will likely have a few posters who are not the brightest candles in the church. But you follow me. I just don't think it's fair to lump me in with this garbage. It's incredibly embarrassing for the good fans to take all this crap from this incident when we've truly done nothing wrong. I wasn't there, I couldn't have stopped them, and I surely don't wish this treatment toward any opposing fan. But it was summed up pretty well with Occidentalist's comment.
