Roger and Who? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s helmet to helmet hit experiment was successful. Here he’s shown contemplating who he is.

NEW YORK (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s crackdown on dangerous helmet to helmet hits, has gone a step further. After another incident occurred in last night’s Philadelphia Eagles 27-17 victory over the New York Giants, Goodell decided to don a helmet himself in order to demonstrate the seriousness of such contact.

Goodell placed the helmet over his head and was met full force head to head by former NFL linebacker, Derrick Brooks, who gladly obliged.

A prayer circle was formed around Goodell who regained consciousness two hours later. He addressed the media shortly thereafter. (more…)

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Ghad"OFF"ensive Star? Perhaps.

LEHIGH VALLEY, PA (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Embattled Libyan Leader Muammar Ghaddafi, whose exact whereabouts have been bandied about for days, surprised several players, coaches and fans yesterday when he unexpectedly showed up at the training camp facility of the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles have made a splash in the NFL this season by acquiring several top players and are a favorite to win the Super Bowl. But the Eagles have also been a team known for giving troubled players a second or third chance – case in point – Michael Vick.

“Coming here was the smartest thing I could have done,” said Vick. “It changed my life. I don’t condone what Muammar’s done, but I’m down with his decision bring his game to Philly and try to turn his life around. Brother’s got skills.” (more…)

Why Eagles Fans Hate the Cowboys (and their fans too)

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Did you see it last night?

Cowboys 41 Eagles 37

An exciting game if there ever was one.  Back and forth.  Offensive explosion. And a few boneheaded plays.  When the dust settled, the Cowboys were 2-0. The Eagles were 1-1.

The rivalry goes back to the early sixties.  There’s something about the Cowboys that stirs deep, deep anger in the City of Brotherly Love more than any other team — including the Giants. 

Here it is…you ready?  The JFK Assassination.

Moments before the world was shocked and Eagles fans found a new enemy.

Moments before the world was shocked and Eagles fans found a new enemy.

Think I’m kidding?  I’m not. 

The booing, the hatred, the all out disdain that Eagles fans love to bestow on the Cowboys dates back to the first game the Boys played in Philly RIGHT AFTER JFK’s assassination. Philly fans, in what was obviosuly cloudy, grief stricken, perception somehow blamed the Dallas Cowboys for the death of this nation’s beloved 35th president. “They’re from Dallas. They Killed Kennedy” That was the reasoning. Ask any 70-something blue collar, Irish-Catholic, Democrat from Philly and they’ll tell you the sentiment of that time. “Cowboys? Oh, they killed JFK.”

Now you know. The city famous for booing everything and cheering life-threatening injuries of opposing players somehow got it in their heads that the Dallas Cowboys pulled the trigger.  Yes, you heard right, Oswald or the guy on the grassy knoll, or Castro, or whoever it was, were actually practice squad members of the team.  Guilt by association to the tenth degree.  It happened in Dallas…so, Dallas is repsonsible.

I’m not kidding.

They really and truly felt this way — then.

And now? Aside from the “everything’s bigger and better in Texas” bravado, the five championships, the who’s-who list of Hall of Famers, the cheerleaders, and the prestige second only to the Yankees — the real “original” reason Eagles fans hate the Cowboys probably isn’t even known, let alone remembered by any Eagles fan 50 or younger. 

That’s because it all goes back to a dark and terrible day in Dallas in November of 1963.
