    I've been around the Philly area visiting a friend. Went to Philly once but for a Phillies game. The sports complex there is really cool- Phillies, Eagles, 76ers and Flyers all basically share one giant parking lot with all the stadiums together iirc

    Never been but I will say one thing: Be CAREFUL

    Those Philly fans are brutal and a lot of them are just looking for a fight, especially if they lose.

    Yep like Cubby said be careful. Don't get into any serious debates just make them all in jest and you should be ok. If you survive I would like to have come back in and share your experience.

    Just wear your purple! I was very surprised when I went to Vikes Panthers last month that the stadium was probably 30% Vikings fans. There will definitely be more than what you're probably expecting.

    Ya, Def wouldn't expect it to be anywhere near 30% since it's a playoff game. But always seems like there are more than I expect anytime I've seen them play here @Car, or @NYG or NE when I lived in CT.

    Oh come on BDawk, you know Philly fans are more rough then almost any other fan base outside of maybe Oakland.

    No I don’t know that and how on earth is that even judged or proven as fact? There are idiots in every fan base. Fights/altercations in every stadium. It’s a false narrative.

    Narratives like that though are built up over the years. Year in and year out, altercation after altercation. Some fan bases have a larger proportion of idiots is all I am saying. People looking to fight.

    Reasons for narrative:
    Booing McNabb at draft
    Cheering Irvin's injury
    Snowballs at Santa
    Holding cell/court underneath Veterans Stadium

    These things have all led to the narrative of "Philly is a rough stadium". There's no "larger proportion of idiots" or "more people looking for fights".
