John Harbaugh responds to Adrian Peterson: ‘Who doesn’t throw snowballs?’

Dec 8, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh looks on during the game against the Minnesota Vikings at M

After the Baltimore Ravens beat the Minnesota Vikings in a wild finish to the game, running back Adrian Peterson took some shots at the fans. Mainly, Peterson was upset with Ravens fans for throwing snowballs.

“They’ve got the worst fans in the NFL. [They were] throwing snowballs the entire fourth quarter, like kids,” Peterson told the media.


Ravens head coach John Harbaugh had a response for Peterson when asked about the comments on Monday.

“Who doesn’t throw snowballs when it snows?” Harbaugh said with a chuckle, via the team’s website. “Maybe in Minnesota because they’re so used to snow, maybe that’s gotten old for them.”

Harbaugh also defended the Ravens fan base.

“What do you want me to say?” Harbaugh said. “We have the best fans in the NFL, I can tell you that.”

    Wow, thought John would have more class than that. Or is he a douchebag like his brother in San Francisco? Bad apples in every stadium. Raven fans reading yes it is unfair to label all you fans as the ‘worst’! There is no excuse though for fans to behave that stupidly and childishly! Here’s hoping the Ravens address that situation buy threatening to revoke season tickets and/or banning from attending future home games! No excuses for that kind of disrespectful behavior!

      Fact: at least two fans that were throwing SNOWballs in the direction of the Minnesota bench were ejected from the stadium. I know: I was there. However, I guess after AP’s first twit wasn’t that favorably received (snowballs being thrown) he decided to change his tune and say they were ICE balls. Funny…I was there the WHOLE GAME and there was no ice on the ground…only in the sodas of people foolish enough to be drinking cold drinks in those conditions. Grow up, AP. You’re a hell of a RB and your tough play gets my respect. Your childish ranting after a loss doesn’t.

        Thanks for the feedback. Glad security ejected the two fools or more involved from the stadium. No need for that kind of behavior from any fan base to be throwing things(snowballs,batteries,dog biscuits,beer cans or bottles,etc.) at opposing players or on the field of play Yes agree with you in regards to him carrying on like a baby after his team lost the game. And it was unfair of him to label your fans as the worse. I don’t buy that at all. Philly and Oakland fans are far worse behaved! Peace!
