Nola.com writer Jeff Duncan wrote this postseason's version of the same hackneyed "Oh those Philly fans!" column, adding to the standard Santa/Michael Irvin/booing fare anecdotes like "the time I saw an old lady give the middle finger while flipping bratwurst" (note: that woman is a HERO). Now he's onto the predictable Twitter trolling.
Wow. Just got to Philly after daylong sojourn to discover my inbox & timeline filled with invective. Who knew Philly fans were so sensitive?

Wow. That's sad. I don't even fault the guy, this is low-hanging fruit. Though if you wanted to find fault, do so in that he was so overzealous that his story was factually incorrect and had to be revised by his editors. But I digress.
What I wanted to do here was warn you, the good people of Philadelphia, about the Saints fans you may encounter tonight. Why? Because they're louts, that's why. Check it out:
THEY GET DRUNK, CHARGE THE FIELD, AND FIGHT COPS!!!!
THEY SHOOT YOU IF YOU DON'T ROOT FOR THEIR TEAM!!!!
THEY WEAR SHIRTS WITH VULGAR PROFANITIES ON THEM IN PUBLIC (AROUND CHILDREN)!!!!
