Raiders fan flips Riley Cooper the bird (GIF)

In the aftermath of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper’s controversy filled summer, he has lost some fans and became unpopular. If he wasn’t already unpopular for that, catching two touchdown passes on the road will get you the attention and ire of the hometown fans. One of the touchdowns was a 63-yard bomb from quarterback Nick Foles.

Cooper was near the stands and looking away when a Raiders fan decided to give him a piece of his mind. The fan leaned forward  and extended his left hand and gave Cooper the one-fingered salute. Cooper didn’t appear to notice though, his back was turned and he was looking the other direction.

Right now the Eagles are leading the Raiders 34-13 early in the fourth quarter.
