The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles are bitter rivals and have quite the history. Philadelphia has been known as a particularly hostile environment for the Cowboys. Michael Irvin injured his neck and the Eagles fans cheered once.
Rookie running back Joseph Randle was making his first trip to the city of brotherly love and said he got the full experience. It included old ladies flipping them the bird.
“We got a full taste,” Randle said, via the Dallas Morning News. “They flipped us off on the bus a few times. It was funny. It was old ladies flipping us off, young people, everybody was flipping off the bus.”
The Cowboys aren’t exactly innocent victims in this either. Rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams was seen waving to the crowd after his fourth quarter touchdown reception put the game out of reach.
“Yeah,” Randle said, “that was [telling them] to beat the traffic.”
Still it is crazy to think that old ladies are getting so worked up over a football game to flip off players. Of course after seeing what a male Jets fan did to a female fan, nothing seems to be too shocking any more. A few harmless gestures might be civil as far as this rivalry goes.
