His dad was ahead of him and he was jumped by what he said were about two dozen Eagles fans. They took him to the ground and beat him. In the process they dumped beer all over him and burned his Cowboys hat right in front of him. It was a Cowboys sideline cap that he just bought two days before.
It was really bad and he was bleeding all over. He had multiple lacerations on his face and ear. He was bruised badly and his hand was hurt from defending himself.

This is a shame! Why doesn't the league do something about this situation? If a fan cannot go to a game without risking harrassment or harm, I would think that a discrimination suit could be brought against the Eagles organization. Stranget things are in court all the time.
I work at a prison as an administrator, I once got sued by a convict because I transferred his cellmate to another prison. He claimed I broke up their common law marraige! No Sh*t! It got into court!
Anyway, why can't the Eagles organization be held liable for creating an unsafe and hostile environment?
