Despite the best efforts of the referees, the Philadelphia Eagles went on the road and defeated the Carolina Panthers 28-23 last night in a match-up of division-leading squads.
During the game, one frustrated Panthers fan pummelled on another in the Bank of America Stadium stands.
dude bro & his chicka were standing for the entire game. words gradually got more and more escalated. there previously was a single mom and her son between us, they left halfway through the 3rd. after that, the lid was off. the dude took offense to the couple never sitting down and obstructing his view. the victim telling the dude bro how they’re being jerks and how rude they are for not sitting. the dude bro turns around and calls the victim a “geriatric fuck”, “faggot”, and “hick”. then sucker punches him right in the face. i don’t know if he got away or left in handcuffs, but i hope it’s the latter. edit: to clarify further, both the puncher and punchee were wearing Panthers attire. The assailant was seated in section 541, row 24, seat 10.
You can flip through the IG post to see all the blood that got on the seats.
The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and the NFL are both investigating the incident, but so far the guy in the Newton uniform hasn't been identified.
Surely he will be. And with a temper like that, we'd hate to be his chicka.
