Mike Scott's hard play and aggressive neck tattoos made him a cult hero in Philadelphia after being sent to Sixers midseason in the Tobias Harris deal.
But he pushed his luck in the City of Brotherly Love by showing up to the Lincoln Financial Field tailgate for the Eagles game against Washington wearing all sorts of Redskins gear.

Also, the ass clowns who tried to throw hands w/@mikescott are the reason why we’ve got a bad rep. We’re not all like that, Mike. You know that.— 24th Letter (@drxgb) September 8, 2019
Mike proved once again why he reminds me of the OGs from 33rd and Diamond. Never seen someone more accessible and more Philly. pic.twitter.com/fRba6oincn
The Sixers issued a statement on the incident:
"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information. We will have no further comment at this time."
