Watch Shady McCoy steal a Redskins fan’s flag

Nov 17, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

Prior to kickoff this afternoon at the Linc, some Redskins fan was attempting to fly his Redskins Country flag in South Philadelphia. LeSean McCoy was not having any of it.

Shady went over to high five some Birds fans and snatched the flag right from the aforementioned Redskins fan. He then walked away and tossed the flag.

Our football team may not be able to win games at home but that doesn’t mean they’re going to let you punk opposing fans get away with these sorts of transgressions.

Love you, Shady.

        sfsu another internet tough guy.. must be from washington… shows as much heart….

    I’m surprised it was McCoy that had to get rid of that flag.. Who gets away with displaying a ” this is redskins country” flag at the Linc? Had it been the vet, that guy probably wouldn’t have been watching the game.

    • Mamareign - Nov 17, 2013 at 6:38 PM

      I think the fans are to worried about getting kicked out nowadays or worse… arrested and fined. At least if McCoy gets fined he can afford to pay the fine.

    I’m sure he’ll get fined for that. NFL is a joke when it comes to that. I think it’s awesome and the birds’ fans around him shouldn’t have even allowed it.

    • Bukakke - Nov 17, 2013 at 5:49 PM

      I agree, he’ll probably get a fine from Goodell’s pussified NFL… way I see it though, the guy was really in Shady’s face with the flag. And Chuckito said it best- you think ripping the flag out of his hands was bad? If this game had took place in the Vet, having his flag taken away would be the last of his worries.

    He only lost his flag? things have calmed down. Back at the Vet he would have been in traction sipping a hot pretzel though a straw.

  5. sfsu - Nov 17, 2013 at 6:04 PM


    Oh wait, it wasn’t DeSean Jackson? Nevermind then!

    • Matt S. - Nov 17, 2013 at 10:51 PM

      Sad but true.

    • willh888 - Nov 18, 2013 at 8:28 AM

      Nah if DeSean grabbed that flag he would have run straight out of bounds

    Very disappointing , thought he had more class than that!!!

    • Mamareign - Nov 17, 2013 at 6:36 PM

      HAH! This is FOOTBALL not the Opera.

    • BenE. - Nov 17, 2013 at 7:27 PM

      Nope, and it was fucking awesome.

    • kramer - Nov 17, 2013 at 7:41 PM

      shut up

    • XDU brah - Nov 17, 2013 at 9:54 PM

      Classless is going to an opposing team’s stadium and waving around a “this is redskins country” flag. What a flaggot.

    • Steve - Nov 18, 2013 at 12:57 AM

      I was a little diaappointed too,would have been great if the clown held on to his towel and pulled a header into the ground and missed the game.

    • Jcr - Nov 18, 2013 at 1:10 AM

      I bet you love the “everybody plays, everybody wins” mentality and give your children the world for their mediocrity. The wussification of America continues. Make sure you make an appointment with your therapist to discuss all of your hurt feelings after reading the responses.

      • Barb Abel - Nov 18, 2013 at 4:54 AM

        I do not love “everybody plays everybody wins”! Far from that, you get what you earn. I do not need a therapist, maybe Shady does!

      • Marvin Monroe - Nov 18, 2013 at 1:20 PM

        The league has banned you from attending your son’s little league games, haven’t they?

      • Barb Abel - Nov 18, 2013 at 6:52 PM

        You win!!!! and you have proven what kind of a person you are. I do not believe everybody plays & everyone wins.My children were taught to work hard to reach the end goal, whether it be school, sports or life, if they won great, if they didn’t work a little harder. Guess what it paid off, they are successful. As for you I think your therapist has his work cut out for him or her.

  7. Larry H - Nov 17, 2013 at 9:30 PM

    I thought it was funny that Shady rip the flag out of the Redskin fan’s hand.

    • BenE. - Nov 18, 2013 at 1:28 AM

      That was my favorite part.

      • Lava - Nov 18, 2013 at 1:52 AM

        Mine too!

  8. christina - Nov 17, 2013 at 9:39 PM

    At the vet the guy would have been pulled over with his stupid flag! Guess he got off lucky, hopefully he still learned it’s rude to wave shit in someone’s face!

  9. Nick - Nov 17, 2013 at 11:43 PM

    I thought signs werent allowed at the Linc? Or is that just for Eagles fans?

  10. Docterry - Nov 18, 2013 at 8:21 AM

    From the Rules for Lincoln Financial
    “Signs, banners or similar items that are obscene or indecent, not event-related, potentially offensive to other patrons, capable of blocking the views of other guests or otherwise deemed dangerous or inappropriate by the Eagles are prohibited. They may not contain commercial messages, logos or political endorsements and may not be hung on the stadium structure…. Lincoln Financial Field reserves the right to confiscate signs that are in violation of stadium policy.

    Shady was only doing the security’s job!!

  11. willh888 - Nov 18, 2013 at 8:32 AM

    nice to see someone actually give a damn when a divisional rival comes to town. Then he continued disrobing the opposition’s crotchle area

  12. gaylesaunders - Nov 18, 2013 at 12:54 PM

    That Redskins fans bringing in that sign is equal to someone coming into your home and saying “F*ck Yo couch! Hell… I’m glad Shady did what he did…It’s our house! Someone has to step up and be a man!

    • Barb Abel - Nov 18, 2013 at 1:11 PM

      That may be how you conduct yourself, but it just shows your ignorance! I want to be proud of our team, fans and city. Most people do not consider stealing “being a man”.

      • another Dom - Nov 18, 2013 at 2:43 PM

        Stealing is when you take something that isn’t yours and keep it. Shady was simply relocating the banner to a more appropriate location.

      • gaylesaunders - Nov 18, 2013 at 3:18 PM

        Ignorant? sorry you missed the Chappelle reference. Barb were talking football…where we watch players beat each other up senseless so that we can be entertained. You can’t be politically correct all the time Barb. Football is not a game of puppy dogs and ice cream. If you disrespect someone in their house you better expect someone to say something to you about it. Yea I’m proud of our team and I’m proud of LeSean for making a statement. Its about time the team stands up for themselves at “Home” especially when a fan from the opposite team comes in and taunts them with a banner.

      Buy another one you richer mother f*cker.
