Philadelphia sports fans are known for their passion and intensity, but according to a recent poll of anonymous NFL players released by The Athletic, they are also the “most annoying fanbase” in the league. The Eagles narrowly beat out their rivals, the Cowboys, with 25.3% of the vote going to Philadelphia and 24.7% going to Dallas.
One player had this to say about the Eagles’ fans: “Just loud, rude and obnoxious. They just swear they’re the biggest football gurus on earth.” Another player echoed those sentiments, saying, “They’re just so passionate, but sometimes it’s too much. They take it too far.”
While the Eagles may not be well-liked around the league, they do have some redeeming qualities. 4.8% of the players surveyed said that Lincoln Financial Field was their favorite stadium in the league to play in. This is a testament to the passion and energy that Eagles fans bring to every game.
Despite being the most annoying fanbase, the Eagles are having a great season. They currently hold the best record in the NFL through the year’s first 10 games, with a 9-1 start. This success can be attributed to their talented roster and strong coaching staff, but it’s also a reflection of the unwavering support of their fans.
They say they’re ‘passionate’
It’s no secret that Philadelphia sports fans can be intense and sometimes over-the-top, but at the end of the day, they just want their teams to win. As one fan put it, “We’re passionate because we care. We want our teams to succeed and we’ll do whatever it takes to support them.”
While it’s easy for outsiders to criticize Philadelphia fans for their behavior, it’s important to remember that they are some of the most loyal and dedicated fans in the country. As another fan said, “We may be annoying to other teams, but we’re always there for our own. That’s what being a fan is all about.”
Despite the negative label of being the most annoying fanbase in the NFL, Eagles fans should be proud of their passion and dedication to their team. It’s what sets them apart from other fanbases around the country and makes them a force to be reckoned with on game day.
