Eagles fan spits in face of Saints fan after playoff loss (Video)


The Philadelphia Eagles lost their NFC Wild Card playoff game to the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night in heartbreaking fashion, so there were understandably some out of control emotions at Lincoln Financial Field.

Nursing a one-point lead, the Eagles defense couldn’t stop the high-powered Saints offense as they marched down the field and kicked a game winning field goal as time expired.

Filming the moment was an over-excited Saints fan, who promptly began harassing Eagles fans as soon as the ball went through the uprights.

Of course, there isn’t a fan base known for their salty attitudes more than the Eagles who didn’t take too kindly to the Saints fan’s taunting.

As the fan loudly promoted that his Saints were traveling to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in the Divisional Round, an unhappy bird fan suggested he was going to spit in his face. He made his threat become a reality moments later, spitting on the fan who was recording the entire exchange.

    Taunting, no. Excited, yes. People need to grow up and stop being sore losers. If it was the other way around, Philadelphia fans would be going balls crazy and it would be described as “joyous fans support local NFL team”. Not “Local NFL fans taunt visiting team fans”. SMH. I hate one sided journalism.
