Here's where you rank among the NFL's rudest fan bases
Philadelphia Eagles (Start fights (including with Santa))
I think the list was numbered incorrectly...so I put us where we belong.
My father and grandfather were both at the Santa game. Since most people don't know the story (other than snowballs at Santa), some explanation may be in order...borrowed from Wikipedia
The night before the game at Franklin Field there was a large snowstorm that left most of the stadium, including the seats, covered in snow. At kickoff, temperatures were in the low 20 degrees (Fahrenheit) and wind gusts reached 30 miles per hour. The snowstorm prevented the Santa Claus that the Eagles had booked for the halftime Christmas pageant from arriving at the game. Bill "Moon" Mullen, who was the Eagles' entertainment director, needed someone to play Santa Claus during the halftime Christmas pageant, picked out Frank Olivo, a 20-year-old fan who was dressed as Santa Claus, to play the role. Olivo, who regularly attended Eagles games, would always dress as Santa Claus for the last regular season game of the year.
Olivo appeared at the underbelly of Franklin Field to the song "Here Comes Santa Claus" alongside a 50-piece band and Eagles cheerleaders dressed as elves. Olivo was supposed to appear on a large Christmas float featuring eight life-sized fiberglass reindeer, but the float got stuck in the mud, so Olivo was forced to appear in the Christmas pageant on foot. In place of carrying a Santa sack, Olivo carried an equipment bag filled with soggy towels. Philadelphia sports talk radio host Glen Macnow described the incident as "a bad game, it's a cold game, are sitting their rear ends in snow, and here comes this lousy, little Santa running down the field."
Olivo's cousin, who witnessed the spectacle, stated " comes out, the PA announcer goes through this big thing, 'Here comes Santa Claus. Let's give Santa Claus a rousing welcome, Philadelphia welcome' ...all hell broke loose." Olivo began his appearance by throwing candy canes to the fans, but when he reached the endzone fans started booing and throwing snowballs at him. Fans then soon started throwing other projectiles including beer bottles and hoagies at him. Olivo suspects that he was hit with more than 100 snowballs during his appearance. So many snowballs were thrown at Olivo that his fake white eyebrows, which were part of the costume, were knocked off. However, he took the pelting in jest, shouting at one fan "you're not getting anything for Christmas." Olivo later stated that he understood why fans were frustrated and that fans were not booing him, but the disappointing season. There is no video of Eagles fans throwing snowballs at Olivo.
The Eagles' public relations director at the time, Jim Gallagher, said that Olivo "was the worst-looking Santa I'd ever seen: Bad suit, scraggly beard. I'm not sure whether he was drunk, but he appeared to be." However, Olivo contests that his costume was high quality and he was not drunk but conceded his fake beard was poor quality.
I'm proud to be from a town where we don't accept imposters, and let people know how we really feel, especially when they are one of our own. My father used to complain every time the national broadcasts would mention the incident..."they have no idea what happened".
