Only In Philadelphia: Linc Security Practicing Chasing Fans Who Run On Field

Aug 26, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

I totally would have volunteered to play the role of the fan who ran on the field. Simply for training purposes of course.

You can see the scene at the Linc today after the Eagles final preseason practice that was open to the public there. Something in the vicinity of 12,000 fans showed up to watch.

    Facing criticism that it took 5 minutes to corral that fat guy, the entire circle responded, “C’mon man, we talkin bout PRACTICE”.

    The unnecessary tag of “Only in Philadelphia” only fosters the negative image of the entire city of Philadelphia. I travel a lot for business and have visited many professional stadiums across this country and in England. The type of hooliganism control being addressed by stadium security is practiced everywhere. And, let’s be real here, actions like this are almost always influenced by alcohol. That is a taboo word due to the $$$$$ it generates. So, these sports facilties are, in fact, fueling this behaviour. Let’s NOT kid ourselves!!

    Think about it!!

    I would love it if they had paniolos* on horses with lassos waiting to round up these runners and drag them off to the hoosegow.

    *cowboys, but of course you don’t want to have folks rooting for cowboys at the Linc.

    The important question is, did the runners slide before they got hit?

    If any of them were good at tackling, can they play safety?

    Sorry 700 level, it’s being practiced everywhere. This is their job, remember.

    Shouldn’t our secondary be out there working with security? Maybe they can work on cutting down on the bad angles.
