From the amazing isn't sports fans stories. Philadelphia Eagles fans have donated over $7,000 dollars to the Mike Zimmer Foundation which is the charity of Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. The Mike Zimmer Foundation is located in the Minneapolis which assists young children in the Twin Cities region. The national news media like to portray Philadelphia Eagles fans as rowdy and acting in an uncivil manner to fans of the opposing team before, during and after football games at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. The fans who have made donations to the Mike Zimmer Foundation added notes to say they were ashamed of the bad behavior of some Eagles fans. Two theories have come from this kind gesture from Eagles fans. The first reason is that Eagles fans are thankful that the Vikings were defeated in the National Football Conference Championship Game. The other reason is that Eagles fans are fearful of payback from Vikings fans at Super Bowl LII at U S Bank Field for their unruly behavior which is understandable.

Are those your theories or what was posted about the gesture. Somehow I find the gesture skeptical.

I think Eagles fans are afraid of getting the same treatment in Minneapolis during Super Bowl 52 from irate fans of the other teams,

@Deepizzaguy They probably are, and a donation would soothe ruffled feathers.

@just4him Although bad behavior in sports events is not only in Philadelphia since there are reports of fans behaving badly in Europe during soccer matches.

That is unusual since Eagles fans are known to boo Santa Claus.

@rheicel It came from many sportscasters on television and in print that Philadelphia sports fans are tough to deal with.
