Report: NFL looking into fan behavior at NFC Championship Game

You know, we were really going to make a real effort to not talk any more about this sort of thing, but a story just came across that would appear to be of interest to fans of the Minnesota Vikings. According to Mike McFeely of the Fargo Forum, the National Football League is looking into the conduct of fans in Philadelphia at January’s NFC Championship Game. According to McFeely’s article, the investigation has been going on for several weeks, and that the NFL’s chief security officer has sent out an e-mail that says that the league “will publicly announce changes that will be implemented going forward.” The notoriously rough Eagles fans, fueled by alcohol during hours of tailgating, infamously acted like thugs to Vikings fans in parking lots before the game and inside the stadium during it. They threw full beer cans, threatened to rape some female fans and unleashed a verbal, vulgar assault on anybody wearing purple or cheering for the Vikings. Most of the Vikings fans who experienced the ugliness felt the Philadelphia police and stadium security did little to protect them. Well, in their defense, they probably only felt that Philadelphia police and stadium security did little to protect them because Philadelphia police and stadium security didn’t actually do anything to protect them.
