And now, your obligatory YouTube video of a fight in the stands
Posted by at 8:36 am ET 134 Comments

What happens when you start tailgating at eight in the morning for a one o’clock Eagles game and then head back out into the parking lot to drink some more before heading up to Section 427 to take in an NLCS Phillies night game?

Fights.

UPDATE: Some eyewitnesses chime in on the comments and give backstory. Sic’d like a mutherfucker:

i was sitting 427 row 11…this all started when one troll looking girl stole a guys rally towel then later turned around and started cursing him out, everyone booed her and she eventually just walked away…then her drunk little boyfriend stayed, and started getting in the face of the guy and a few girls who werent involved to begin with..then he smacked one of the girls in the face and thats when the kid in the howard jersey jumped down two rows and got into his face and eventually fought

the dad and his daughter stood next to our row during this, he really did a good job keeping her out of it..i could hear you guys screaming YO DAD cause you had seats for him, but we were told they got relocated to another section

So there you have it. Another commenter recognized the kid in the Howard jersey from the Eagles game and said he was drunk by one o’clock, so I pretty much nailed it. See how good I am at drawing obvious conclusions? Way to go, me.

(Thanks to The Fightins reader Tom who captured this gem last night)

    what would cause two phillies fans to start fighting? really? Did a giant fan have camo on?

    This, unfortunately, is what you have to deal with when your team is winning. You get the dickbag low-life ‘fans’, the same retards that riot when they won the world series.

  • http://www.yankees.com Nick Swisher

    Thank you, meech, for posting this.

    This is EXACTLY the shit I’m talking about. This is why you guys are clowns. It’s NLCS game 2. Your team is down in the series, 0-1, yet winning this game. This appears to be somewhere in the neighborhood of Section 425 or so, which means these clowns probably paid upwards of $200+ for their tickets. And what happens? A Phillies fan fights another Phillies fan. It’s not like some a-hole from San Fransisco was up there starting shit. You’re phighting your own phrickin’ phans. What gives Philly?

    Maybe it’s the dude who appears around the 16 second mark…yeah, the clown with the Eagles jersey and the Eagles bomber cap. Yo bro….you’re at an NLCS game, maybe you should throw on some red.

    And #6 (Howard) with the blue cap perfectly personifies Philly. Looks like white trash. Has white trash friends with Miller Light in hand, and can’t phucking wait to get into a phight.

    I love this video!

    Giants in 6.

    When I’m not fantasizing about A-Rod’s centaur, I spend too much time obsessively dissecting video of CBP “phan phights”. And then publish an exacting, meticulous -and if I may say so myself -Pulitzer-worthy play-by-play of said video.

    One could conclude that I have no life, and sadly, I would have to agree. Such is the lot of the sociopathic loser. Thank you Fightins Blog, for providing the therapeutic sounding board that I so desperately require. It’s a necessary relief from my usual routine of compulsively arranging and re-arranging the toilet paper rolls in my hall closet.

    Hey Nick Swisher, a simple YouTube search of “Yankees fans fight” would tell you to shut the fuck up. And shouldn’t you be curled up in a ball rocking back and forth? Cliff Lee’s coming tonight.

  • sarah p

    The guy in the Howard jersey was sitting in front of me at the Eagles game. He was drunk and annoying by 1pm.

    Nick Swisher the player is an asshole, so it’s not surprising that’s the name the commenter chose. I know it’s shocking, but people get drunk and do stupid things. That doesn’t reflect on an entire fan base. I have been to over 20 games this year and never got into a fight, but that might change if you were sitting next to me. You probably don’t go to the games to support any, though. Even your own.

    We tried to get the dad and daughter into our section away from the fights. Thats why people kept yelling DAD, YO DAD.

    That’s good to hear that others cared, #26.

    I know that I go out of my way to make sure my son, Spike Eskin, has an easy life. He doesn’t even need the kneepads (he just likes them so he can be like his dear old dad).

  • Dubee Dubee Du

    Just as we have trolls among us on our Phillies blogs. There are trolls among the crowds at our games. They’re too afraid to reveal themselves as a nonPhillies fan.
    Recognizable traits are:
    1) Loner (has no friends) dressed in Phila. garb so as to blend in.
    2) Does things at inappropriate times to annoy those around him.
    (feels he best serves his team’s cause by not allowing Phillies fans to enjoy themselves.)
    3) Starts his confrontational final play with a female hoping that she hits him so that he can be escorted out without much physical damage.
    4) When being pummeled by an obviously bigger individual he cowers and falls into the fetal position.
    5) When saved by security if he is still consciuos he will make some inane gesture giving himself a sense of victory.
    6) Usually will be found jerking off in the holding cell celebrating his day.

    Yo Adam I actually appear in this video! I am the dude in the red hoody (not the one fighting with the jersey on top, just red hoody pulled up). The dude in the Howard jersey and his buddy in the track jacket were maddd wasted to the point that I knew something was going to happen at some point in the night. Actually, this all started between some chicks though. Not shown in the video, some broad that was with the jersey/hoody dude that ended up getting pummeled started it. She was just talking shit and then attacked the 2 chicks behind her. It seemed kind of unprovoked.

    A.) Lack class.
    B.) Were beaten with an ugly stick inside a burlap sack as children.
    C.) Have a small penis; which probably started the whole argument to begin with.
    D.) All the above

    You stay classy boys AND at home so the rest of us can enjoy the game at the park.

  • Chuck

    Nick Swisher, you’re somewhat of a dick (after all, you’re posting under the name of another dick)..

    BUT..

    You actually make some good points in your #11 post. Two Phillies fans fighting each other at an NLCS game makes ZERO sense.

    Still…this isn’t indicative of our fanbase as a whole.

    AND…

    I’ve seen some pretty crazy shit up there in the Zoo…so it’s not just Philly.

  • SantaClaus

    Philly was more fun when all they did was boo fictional holiday figures. Last year the Easter Bunny got raped in the Linc bathroom at the Dallas game.

    I watched this from 330, sounded bigger than it actualy was I guess.
    We had a drunk older guy take a header down the stairs, lost 2 teeth, bled all over. It was a mess. One of the attendants/ushers went over to the major blood pool and fished out the 2 teeth with his bare hands. He was holding onto them like a lucky pair of dice.

  • dougie

    This is a disgrace. I love this website but there is no reason why this post would have to be included. First of all, people read this blog that are not from the city and probably already have a poor opinion of the way Philly fans act and this isn’t helping at all. As a proud Philadelphian and a Phillies fan I really wish this was never posted because the majority of the people in the stands know how to act like adults and control themselves in public.

  • steph

    seriously. you people suck. and you have no idea what happened. and the guy with the howard shirt was not drunk, he was the one that pulled them off of us. whoever recoded the video started it late so you dont see that part. seriously though if you plan to come to a phillies game leave all the hate at home…that girl was mad at the world to begin with.

    Also “Nick Swisher” is a 37 year old south philly fetal alcohol baby living with his parents and waiting for them to die so he can get their rotting house for free. He became a yankees fan in the mid 90′s because it wasn’t cool to wear phillies hats .

  • Matt Diaz

    I got here as fast as I could (cough cough).

    You need me to “get involved”?

  • will.H

    I dont think you guys get it.. No one will ever stop responding to Nick’s fake baseball opinions. Even if we did, he wouldn’t go away. He likes the Phils more than the Yanks based upon how much time he spends on us. We’ll just have to deal with his love for Philadelphia’s passionate fanbase. Yanks couldn’t even pack the park on Where’s Steinbrenner night. 89.5% capacity to honor the guy, priceless.

  • Cody Ross

  • bigmyc

    This Nick Swisher guy is just gonna be negative about anything that will happen. I don’t understand why people allow him the pleasure of twisting everyone up.

    The guy’s an obvious buffoon who has nothing better to do in his life but critisize a baseball team who has done nothing but succeed in the last half decade or so. How’s that for irony?

    He’s a nobody and should be treated as such.

    @ Muscles — he looks like a little sissy in a schoolyard.

  • Wes Chamberlain

    There was a huge brawl in K lot before game 1. There were like 3 simultaneous fights (including one chick fight) going on with at least 20 participants. I tried to record it on my phone, but I had already drank like 20 beers up to that point, so my footage was terrible.

    My night really wouldn’t have been complete if I didn’t get to see a fight.

    And it’s a shame that the little wiener in the video didn’t get stabbed in his chest.

  • Joe Buck

  • Joe D

    I like the way Ross puts his bat down real quick after a walk. Who the fuck does he think he is? Rickey Henderson? You are still a fucking white trash scrub Ross, understand that.

  • will.H

    he hit chooch with the bat on Saturday night during his sweet little bat flip.

  • Joe D

    I’m just laughing to myself thinking about how foolish Doc is going to make Ross look in game 5. He’ll probably spin that dirtbag right into the ground.

  • bigmyc

    Guys, give Ross his due. He’s an equal opportunity NL East spoiler guy. He did the same to the Braves and the Mets for the last few years.

    I don’t understand why he has to be Public Enemy No. 1. I mean, I’d be fired up too if I was owning some of the best pitchers in the game and in post season.

    If anything, Doc and Oz should be ashamed that they threw that same fateful pitch like they were Bill Murray on a pitching mound on a baseball field in Puxatauney, Pa.

  • bigmyc

    Jdog, I saw you were drinking Miller Lite, but by the looks of you, I’d have you down for a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale guy…no wait, that’s too retro….no, maybe a Fat Tire man, eh?

  • Joe D

    Hey bigmyc….if I want to hate Ross I’m going to hate him. So he ran into a couple of fastballs down and on the inner-half. Good for him. But he’s STILL Cody Ross. He’s acting like he’s Babe Ruth. If I’m him I’m sprinting out of the box after home runs thinking “holy shit I suck and just went yard off Halladay…AGAIN! OMG! Let me touch the plate before I wake up from this dream!”

  • IncBomb

    I was watching the game at a bar in Austin and a major drunken brawl broke out between an SF fan and some other guy (not a Phils fan.) The guys next to me knew I was in town from Philly and were super apologetic, like, “this never happens here,” etc. I told them I was used to it being from Philly and all. They looked at me like I was insane.

    Fuck Nick Swisher. I was at a game with my aunt, my sister, and my mother, and both my sister and my mother came decked out in Phils garb, I had a hat on and so did my aunt. They had seats up in where the 400 section would be for us, except higher, pretty nosebleed stuff. My aunt and I had seats field level.

    My mom and sister come down after four innings. Fucking Yanks fans poured beer on them. Called em dumb sluts, c**ts, bitches, anything you can think of, absolutely ripping them apart. Mind you, this was the game in which Doc was getting hit around and CC had our number, game 1 of that 3 (4?) game series at the tail end of interleague. So its not like they were up there cheering cause we were kicking the Yanks ass. I’ve never been so angry in my entire life.

  • will.H

    keegan, nick swisher is too much of a coward to address your post.

    Not to mention that’s a little fucked up. Picking on women needs to be stopped by the men in the section (see phillies video above). Obviously New Yorkers didn’t care.. it takes courage to stand up to people who harass women.

  • http://twitter.com/4who4what ScottGraham

    Only time I ever got into a fight with a Phillies fan was at a local “philadelphia bar” out here in Los Angeles. It’s mostly where the transplants go to watch football. I was there for an WS game in 08 and this dude just wouldn’t shut the fuck up with his Eagles chant. Phillies score? E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles! Yankees score? E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles! Commercial? “DALLAS SUCK! DALLAS SUCKS! E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!” I was drunk and had enough of his shit so I threw hands. Guy was ruining everyone’s World Series experience. Totally justified.

    Fuckin’ saw him on the local newscast once the Phillies won the series saying “Well, the Eagles are still our number one team, but go Phillies!” as a response to the reporter saying “A Dallas Sucks chant broke out after the final out of the game.”

  • Mike P

    I’m still kind of shocked about the “YMCA” business going on at Yankee Stadium. I thought the “you’re gay!” insult was something that died off after the age of 10 or so, when it becomes clear that it’s generic, lame, and uninteresting. Most normal people could come up with any number of more interesting insults that would avoid being interpreted (properly, I should add) as hate speech. I guess there’s an intimidation factor–surrounding the person from all directions, pointing down at them, and screaming slurs in their face–but that doesn’t make it any less pathetic.

  • http://twitter.com/4who4what ScottGraham

    Mike P, it’s a problem with most sports teams. Hell, look at the Dirty 30 crowd back at the vet. They were truck drivers and garbage men with middle school educations who spent thousands upon thousands so they could go make idiots out of themselves for 3 hours on a sunday for 8 weeks because they felt like celebrities for doing it. It’s the idiots that are usually the loudest, most obnoxious people at games, so doesn’t surprise me that guys who spend half their salary on yankees partial season tickets have chips on their shoulders when it comes to gays, and aren’t bright enough to realize they probably shouldn’t be singing gay epithets.

    One thing the CBP doesn’t have that the Vet did was room to fight. Those lower level walkways around the retractable seating….

    Got to watching some good stadium fight videos and came across this. Vintage fight footage before cellphone cameras. Caught by the tv guys. The Vet at its finest.

  • Mike P

    @ScottGraham

    Sure, I get that harassing other teams’ fans is typical. It’s just that, for some reason, I found that one particularly disgusting, and I don’t think it’s just because they’re in New York.

  • steph

    Haha geeze this video is everywhere…but seriously let’s get this crap straight. So the canadian fellow to my right was twirling his towel like the rest of the stadium when the chick in front of him turned around and grabbed the towel out of his hands screaming about how he keeps hitting her with it…which he wasn’t doing on purpose. So after a couple of innings listening to all of us behind her talk about how messed up it was she got pretty angry and turned around and hit m in the face and grabbed my hair. Once we got her off of me she fled and tried to leave I guess security grabbed her. But her boyfriend was in my face about how we wouldn’t stop talking about it (we would have if she game him back his stuff) and was trying to provoke me to hit him, that’s when the guy in the howard shirt got involed to get him away from us. The scrawny dude hit the guy in the howard shirt first that’s pretty much where the video picks up. Enough of this crazy drunken philly fan crap, that girl (who you don’t see in this video was obviously not happy to be at the ball game since she was starting fights. I paid plenty of money to be in that seat and have a good time, do you think we were there looking for a fight? Geeze be realistic and yeah they did let us stay why would they kick us out?

    There was lots of white trash at that game including in section 132 where I was sitting. Two guys dressed in Eagles’ gear showed up after the 1st inning, proceeded to get beers sold to them every inning even though they appeared drunk & very slurred speech, yelled incoherent shit including the one guy yelling ‘Throw the Cuuuttteer!” often when Oswalt pitched. The capper was when he belched/threw up in his mouth in 6th and proceeded to get some on the lady in front of him. Before the lady’s husband figured out what was going on, these two guys high-tailed it out of there.

    The capper was the idiot was the 24-year old idiot from MA who rear-ended me after the game when I was stopped at a red light on Pattison Ave. He tried to flee the scene which wasn’t a good move on his part since a bike cop saw him & pulled him over. Started yelling initially but he wasn’t so tough when he was crying after he got arrested for DUI and was headed to jail last night around 11:45.

    Hey Steph, I was one of the canadian guys in the seats next to you, glad you guys got to catch the end of the game. Lol wow I didn’t expect to find this video online, and much less find a huge comment thread dedicated to it.

    The girl in front was definitely a psycho, my friend was waving the towel above his head like everyone else, even if he did hit her it was obviously not on purpose but she flipped out completely and just ripped the towel out of his hand while screaming her head off. At first the boyfriend was apologetic for her and tried to offer his towel to my friend (to which she promptly screamed ‘no’ and snatched his towel from him) but then I guess he decided to flip out after his gf turned into an even bigger psycho later on. We weren’t very happy when security made us leave but understood and didn’t make a scene, they have a tough job trying to figure out what’s what in these situations and I’m sure the crazy chick told them all sorts of crap. I think a few of them felt bad when they saw our IDs, realized how far we had come and that we hadn’t done anything besides one of us accidentally brushed someone’s hair with a towel.

    Oh well, at least it was the 8th inning and the game was almost over. Still a very fun trip overall!

  • steph

    @ryan I felt so bad you guys got kicked out! Once they realized she flat out assaulted me they calmed down and let us stay but said they already told you guys to leave! I’m glad you didn’t let it ruin your trip because0 I know we were all having a great time :o )

    Thanks steph and Ryan…. I will update the the video description accordingly

  • will.H

    its a shame the canadian guys got kicked out. CBP security employs a hand full of retards. I’m sure they do a great job most of the time.. but they often get it wrong and kick out the wrong people because they think they’re defusing some type of situation. What if it was a serious altercation, you think old head doc brown lookin dude from the video is going to stop anything from happening? No one noticed there was a problem for what.. 5 minutes? They were 9 feet from the tunnel stairs.

    well, the flair on his hat alone should have been enough to diffuse the situation.

    hey there i read your web logs all the time, you have some tremendous things to say. My subscribers would like your style, do you imagine you could be a invitee blogger for me?

  • ryan

    @Steph: Yeah no worries at all, made for a good story back home! You could tell some of the security guards felt bad, but there was one dude (I think the head one?) who was pretty amped up and wouldn’t let us get a word in to explain, just that we were leaving right then and there and to give him our IDs to copy down.

    But you and everyone else in the other rows (besides the towel-snatching psycho) were friendly and a lot of fun, was a great crowd and great game! Oswalt was amazing.

    And yeah I felt bad for the Back to the Future guy, he was the only employee up there for a little bit until the guys in blue arrived, there was no way he was going to try and break anything up by himself haha
