Considering the price of Super Bowl tickets these days, I'm not so sure I'd be throwing the word 'theft' around too much.

There are many Philadelphians that have old Franklin field stadium seats in their basements and garages.

I chuckled.

As much as I loathe theft, I can't be a hater in this situation.  Even if I had been fortunate enough to attend Super Bowl XLVIII, and even if I had been really drunk, I wouldn't have it in me to steal a seat from the stadium....but damn, it would have been an awesome souvenir....and quite the conversation piece in my living room.

Minnesotan here.  Been to that stadium.  It's nice, but for the price it's not that nice.  For the cost of attending the Super Bowl?  Even I can't begrudge some Philly trash from taking a seat.  Not only is it justifiable, it's also in their nature.

Indignant, Fick took the destruction personally, and tried to chase down the culprits to stop them.

Everyone has their own preferred method of how they'd like to die (naked girl avalanche).

Chasing down drunk, violent Eagles fans who caused minor damage to a billionaire's property wouldn't be my in my top 10.

my favorite part of the whole article

"The MSFA has not filed any damage or theft reports with Minneapolis police, and has not asked police to investigate any such cases, said police spokeswoman Darcy Horn."

basically they made so much money last sunday, they can't be bothered to chase down a few souvenir hunters

Whats funny is I've found Philly drivers to be very courteous. Yes really. As a CDL driver. But I guess all WTF stupid when they turn Eagle fans.

The Vikings lost. Get over it. I'm supposed to be outraged because someone took an insured seat from some subsidized billionaire's stadium after watching his team finally win a championship?

Yup, I have a pair of seats from the Vet. Watched the game Sunday sitting in one.
 
2018-02-08 07:56:46 AM  
And another thing: what kind of cheap-ass seats does the stadium have that a fan could remove one? I would think you'd need an impact driver to make any progress.

This guy is an amateur.  Some guy in our city got caught stealing ENTIRE SECTIONS of aluminum bleachers from HS football and baseball fields, then selling them for scrap.

Oh yes, attack the man and not his point. It was a crime. Philly fans were guests in Minnesota, and probably were treated 1,000,000 time better than when Vikings fans visted Philly. If you don't want to labeled as all assholes, don't defend assholes.

Well, they are designed to be replaceable - I mean, if you read the story, and bunch of Philly fans decided to just up and break them. 

Also to be fair, they didn't seems to have any problem with this until Philly came to town.

I am sure there are plenty of reasonable Eagles fans on Fark and in the real world. H31N0USjust doesn't appear to be one of them.

And why would we enjoy your parade? Have fun at your parade! Eat some horseshiat for the rest of us!

I apologize.

Apparently there are multiple people who don't grasp that as Vikings fans we aren't bitter that we lost, we are bitter that there seem to be a lot of asshat Eagles fans doing asshatty things. I apologize for calling out the one asshat and will not make that mistake in the future.

I sincerely am happy for the non-asshat Eagles fans. There were TONS of you at the Superbowl, which I worked, and it was frankly awesome to see the befudled and joyful faces of all those fans FINALLY getting their Superbowl. It did my heart well to see what I would look like if my team ever figures out how to get one. You deserved it. Sorry if the asshats in your group make it hard to make that clear.

That's the thing. I think most fans, even Patriot fans like myself are happy/ok with how things turned out. I'm happy for Eagles fans, I mean, they are so happy some of them are eating horseshiat. That's nuts!

But the ones who riot and break things and whatnot are just jerks. Don't defend jerks.

Compared to the high prices of food and beverages at the Super Bowl....$125 for an AWESOME souvenir?  Not bad...not bad at all.  Hell, I went to Eagles @ Seahawks back in December, I would have paid $125 to keep my seat.

The guy that stole the seat?  Legend.

The people who were breaking the seats?  Assholes.

Yes, there is a difference.

Yes, there are always some drunk jerks after any team in the world wins a championship..  or loses.. Lets not forget New England had more arrests than Philly that night.  And Minnesota has spilled blood in the past as well..  tho not for winning a Super Bowl.

This. Stealing the seat is one of those "I know it's bad, but if I could get a stadium seat from the biggest game in my team's history for $125, I'd probably do it."

Breaking sh*t just for the sake of destroying something sucks.

Basically, stealing in this case comes from a place of love and appreciation, and destruction comes from a place of assholery.

So what's your saying is it's a FANS CODE and I wouldn't understand?
