Tom Brady

Rowdy Philadelphia Eagles fans celebrated the team's first ever Super Bowl win by destroying property, overturning cars, and setting fires in the Center City area after the Eagles upset the New England Patriots 41-33 in Minneapolis on Sunday.

Philadelphians lit fires in the street, overturned cars and threw debris through a Macy's window minutes after the Eagles won their first Super Bowl in team history.

The Philadelphia police and members of the fire department surrounded city hall to prevent property damage and helped put out fires as drunken fans celebrated in the streets.

In one bizarre ritual that could have ended badly, dozens of fans stood atop a Ritz Hotel canopy awning waiting their turn to perform "trust falls" -- throwing themselves into the crowd below in the hopes they would be caught.

The canopy eventually collapse under the weight of the revelers, spilling dozens of people onto the sidewalk below. There was no word on injuries.

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning
    All those "Frat boys" out there bugging.
    I wanted them both to lose.
    Real Winner: Giants Commercial and Kevin Hart ass

  • Michelle

    Let them be great. They happy. I'm from Ohio State and it gets deadly when we win championships so I'm here for it ???

  • Yoni7

    So how many people were shot by police for this drunken lewdness and criminal destruction of property during this "celebration"?

  • Phillybruh

    Let us be great! Too be fair they told all the businesses to board up and put stuff up they didn't want broke if they won...lol Should have taken that down...lol

  • Yoni7

    O-H

  • Kemi

    It was a great game and halftime entertainment! I’m happy for the Eagles’ fans and can understand the hysteria. But they destroyed their community in the process... ??!! Congratulations tho!

  • iWasteTime

    where is my tea cup ...

  • Yoni7

    In lieu of THIS post right here........you get a red Solo cup with no straw.

  • Kemi

    It was a great game! Congratulations

  • Phillybruh

    They were acting the fool in each and every part of the city and to the polices credit treated them all the same from the hood at 52nd and market to Center City.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Good game..Justin was trying to pa homage but ended up being disrespectful of Prince's religion and wishes. If the man openly said that he thought the use of MJ's image as a hologram was in poor taste..why would you ever think it would be cool to do it to him?

  • millz

    So.... THEY can celebrate like this and it's not on every news channel... but when WE march peacefully we get... oh never mind...any who Justin did a good redeeming performance ... tee hee

    Prince was super pleased .... Ask me how I know ... He was proud of Jt and so am I....

  • tintin

    ok this is just stupid.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Whye people never have to pay for their actions/behavior.

    Looks like a suicide drill to me ?????

  • iWasteTime

    Happy for you ... Kinda ... lol

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I love the fact that Eagles won. I can't stand Brady. I can't stand that people kiss his ass. Fuck whoever mad don't quote me because i won't respond.

  • Yardgirl

    I am sooooo happy for the Eagles and their fans!! Philly needed the win and after watching that game, they deserved it. Even though I live in New England I hate the Patriots so I was glad to see them lose, hahahahaa!!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I-O!

  • Yardgirl

    Hells yeah, let them be great!!

  • Yoni7

    But were they treated as "thugs" or fans? How did the media report it?

  • Solstice

    Cheers (red solo cup) LMBAO ???

  • iWasteTime

    I was cheering for my boxes.
    Can't get down with either team.
    If Tom would have went down the with those 2 mins left, ya girl would be UPPP right now ! Dislike him more now

  • Phillybruh

    This morning the local news reported it as disrespectful unruly fans. The mentioned the number of arrests that were made and how it shouldn't be tolerated. But it was simply too many people in that area for the cops to really do anything except what they did.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But blacks are animals when we riot?
    Mkkkkkkkkkk!!!

  • You Could Never

    Nope Prince couldnt stand Justin. JT didnt have to do the Prince tribute. The NFL are the ones who could have found someone else to do THAT portion. SB performers share billing ALL the time.

    I kinda feel....This is our punishment for knee taking. Stay woke.

    Stay safe to the fans.

  • iWasteTime

    They could have did anything in that moment.
    Put a real screen up, play his part from his SB performance and have JT watching, or outfit changing or getting his audio right!
    Could have paid tribute to him before the game anything else!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I think it's the overall bias based on why people are 'rioting' and even if the police did treat everyone the same it was because the majority of the rioters were white.

  • You Could Never

    For folks asking about the crowds in Philly and the police...they were nice about it. HOWEVER, Some Patriots fans didnt fare so well. THEIR most racist city asses got pepper sprayed and arrested. So if it makes anyone feel better some mayo folks indeed felt the wrath last night.

    "UMass Police reported that fights broke out shortly after the game ended, and the crowd threw objects and set off smoke bombs and firecrackers. Police issued multiple dispersal orders before using pepper spray to clear the disturbance. UMass Police are proceeding with criminal charges"

  • casiepriest33

    We were supposed to be protesting the NFL. We have no unity! We can't even stop watching a stupid game! If we can't turn off a dumb game, how are we going to successfully fight white supremacy?Collectively we have the intellect and attention of an ADHD child!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He may have been proud of JT but most people will choose their religion OVER anybody.. and being he was all about his spirituality and his privacy and how he was presented to the world..nah you can believe that if you want to and you can be proud of him if you choose but unless you were in his inner circle oh say like Shelia E. who tweeted about this foolishness..then I will give your opinion validity. But me a Prince fan since DMSR thought it could have been done without his image we would have know the tribute was to him without that.

  • Shira Harding-James

    ????? Isn’t this backwards?! They won right? Then why the riot?! I’m so confused!

  • Kanyade

    I saw a vidja of a fan at the stadium during the concert. It was dead quiet in her area. She said the only "live" part of the concert was the paid fans cheering around the stage. The rest of the stadium couldn't be bothered. LOL.

  • Phillybruh

    In that general area yes, but as I stated celebrations and people gathering in the street was taking place all over the city.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Destroying thier own city over what should be a happy and positive occasion. Just dumb.

  • ShWa

    Some foolish behavior....

  • Phillybruh

    Colin Kapernick was at Ava Duvernays Super bowl Party...lol

  • Kanyade

    LOL!!!!!!

  • Solstice

    It would’ve been nice if JT could have had incorporated Mint Condition along to do the tribute. They are from Minneapolis and they are a whole band. Which Prince also had. Still wish he was still with us though ?

  • ShWa

    Stupid-ness.

  • ShWa

    So true, everyone watched as if nothing ever happened this is why we stay losing....

  • wonderwoman

    Did anyone see Kevin Hart trying to get on the stage for the trophy presentation?Security wasn’t having it, they didn’t let him up there. I could hear him saying, but I’m Kevin Hart. He was drunk too, dropping the f bomb on nfl network.

  • Shira Harding-James

    I love me some Justin!!

  • You Could Never

    So if HE was watching....*trails off*

  • JV

    It was not THAT bad. The awning was a (stupid) accident. I have not read of even one car turned over. There was no "riot," come on..

  • Torae

    So it’s okay to riot if your team wins and nothing is done but a peaceful protest and MFs going to jail...”This is Murica” ?????

  • Solstice

    Lmbao!! I was wondering who that was??!! I said the same thing to my daughter! I was like somebody got denied for real ????

  • Shira Harding-James

    Just a question how does turning off the game bring about change?

  • V Dubb

    Theyll be militant in another week with Black Panther. No worries their support wanes with the occasion.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Exactly....

  • imright

    the funniest part of the game was Kevin Harts drunk midget ass ????

  • Kim’s Original Face

    dummies! congrats to the Eagles but isnt there a better way to celebrate...sheesh

  • iWasteTime

    He was bugging. The commissioner of the league and the teams owner was on that stage. They only let 1 player on the stage. Kev was Wildin!!
    He was WASTED ... lolol

  • You Could Never

    I have not read of even one car turned over.

  • Mark mcharm

    Said no black person ?

  • Phillybruh

    They did turn over a few cars.

  • Mark mcharm

    protest for what? they are putting money in place for social injustice let people live

  • Kanyade

    Is it just me or did Kevin Hart not drink alcohol or do cannibus like when he first came out because he talked about his dad's struggles with the narcotic and alcohol. I thought Kevin was a sober fella and was just naturally funny and "lit" as the youngins say. Perhaps I was wrong.

  • V Dubb

    Did he really? Cause she tweeted this.....The only football player I’m checking for this weekend. ‘Cause I cannot pretend that everything is okay with this enterprise. #ImWithKap pic.twitter.com/ug9LPU12SS

    Whites who do it are just being "rowdy". :-|

    Well I'm sure you'd know better than me, lol

  • casiepriest33

    Comedy! Sad but true. We're lost.

  • JV

    So I guess Prince didn't even like Justin, so why did he try to do a tribute?

    Probably because his own act is getting stale.

  • iWasteTime

    new post Kartrashians

    Princr hated pop artist like him

  • Kemi

    Social inequities/inequality

  • Solstice

    Didn’t watch. Checked scores via Google. But turned right on for the last 2:35! Couldn’t wait to see Robert Kraft and Tom Brady’s faces showing defeat. ??

  • V Dubb

    It doesn't matter the masses will never stand for much.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe he's trying to win back some goodwill, since a lot of black people werent feeling him after he butted heads with Prince.

  • EMILY POST

    Those are the people’s who never played sports... they just want to belong .

  • Phillybruh

    Do what I did donate too his cause. I didn't watch much football this season. But I did watch last night.

  • V Dubb

    One day they won't have a choice at what side they are on. They will say they don't know how not watching will make.a difference but state they will not watch a pedofile/sexual assault persons show or movie. Cosby, Kevin Spacey etc. They make money off of how many people watch. That's been knowledge...it's why you get the things from Nielsen reporting people. But it doesnt matter..people support what they want.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly

  • casiepriest33

    If that needs to be explained: may the ancestors guide you. Do you think Richard Spencer was watching the big game? If we can't disengage from a game we're pathetic. We're in a race war and we're busy playing and watching games. Get some dignity sister.

  • xenaD

    Damn Man. I was so excited Justin did all of my jams!!! Goes online,I was so alone, apparently us black people are supposed to hate Justin! I missed the friggin memo ????? I’m waiting on *NSYNC and everything. Otp with my lame ass sisters mad hype! We r such lames lol (even reminiscing about how durn condescending him and Cameron Diaz were acting towards me and my sister long ago... they were also mad high but that’s another story lol) I feel so lame ?

  • Kemi

    My only guess is cos Prince was from Minneapolis! JT wanted to incite some excitement with the locals there. Dunno

  • casiepriest33

    Collectively if we had the mindset of you and I, we'd be unstoppable. Too bad we're unicorns and deemed crazy by our people. I'm done trying to educate our people, after all we've been through: if you ain't ready now, you'll never be ready.

  • V Dubb

    Commendable, and I'm sure you didn't make a big difference being one person watching last night but there really have been some to not miss a report. And you're probably a Philly fan (seeing as your name is Phillybruh) so I get it. Point is there were many doing the same during the Civil rights movement and right now it doesn't seem bad. Until the next killing or mishap on our community then there's outrage. Not watching football for some is a way of silent protest for those that cannot donate, or have a physical way to assist. There are plenty doing their best in their own ways. I'm not just supporting for him but also.my stance on CTE for the family, friends, I have that played ball all of their lives with no knowledge of the damage.

  • Look@m3

    But when black people riot and do it for a cause.....nm!

  • JRock

    I'm not an Eagles fan but my team did not make it to the Bowl but I was team Eagles yesterday because I didn't want Tom "deflate gate" Brady's cheating ass to win. But really Eagles fans? It's not that serious for you all to risk life and limb over a football game for not just your life but the lives of others such as innocent bystanders.

    On to another point. I saw that drunk ass midget Kevin Hart's drunken debacle last night when he tried to storm the stage where the Lombardi trophy was being presented and then he later posted a pissy drunk video to apologize.

    ...another point. It isn't if some men aren't dangerously stupid already but when you constantly do stupid stuff and think affixing an apology to it like "fix it glue" thinking it fixes your mistake it's really quite pitiful. That's what the too short curb jumping drunk midget did last night. Entuit, girl your husband will be cheating on you again in the next 5.4.3.2....

    PSA - get ALL the dangerously stupid people off the streets before C.O.B (close of business) today. Please start with 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

  • Look@m3

    That performance was weak!!! I didn't watch it but what I saw on the news was a Justin trying to dance but his motions gave off the vibe that he was just going through the motions. There was no energy what so ever...I didn't miss anything that's for sure.

  • Phillybruh

    The silent protest is commendable and I completely understand the reasons behind it.

  • Look@m3

    Yeah they said he (Prince) was a HUGE fan so they wanted to do a contribute to him. Just bad that Justin was the performer I guess....

  • Blue

    Hoping Ishkabibble's is ok.

  • V Dubb

    It's going to take a lot to combat this racist system but every little bit helps.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So what is going to happen to Wentz?

  • You Could Never

    YES. Took the bird. I was like well DAMN

  • V Dubb

    I don't completely fault the ones who just don't believe because there were slaves who didn't fight back or try to escape, and those during the Civil rights times that wanted us to just sthu and quit making noise. It's the one week I'm mad the next week Im not ones that get me. It's a mess with our community in all areas. It's why the outsiders win.

  • Phillybruh

    The Zoo is not in an area where folks would just walk to it like the center of the city..lol But where did you read that.

  • Yoni7

    #bottomsup LOL

  • hottlanta

    Wow what happened to the word “THUG”rotation and the rotation of the phrase if they had both parents at home they wouldn't be acting like that. Where is their dad in their life? Is the Ritz gonna take the picture of the people on top of the awning identify them and bring them in for damaging their property. The #JanetJacksonDay was lit. Janet is a Jackson she doesn't need Justin to be revelent. If she never makes any more music she is Ms.Jackson. She was getting record deals back in the 90's for 80M.Justin dissed Prince and made fun of him at an awards show by
    lowering the mike because Prince couldn't come to get an award. I
    heard the diss last night on one of his albums and I said wow. Folks
    had me dying saying the sheet was from Bed Baths and Beyond. I wonder are the white people jobs gonna look at their facebook accounts and fire them for lewd behavior and damaging property. You know some of them put that stuff on facebook. Janet needs Justin for her career like I need a cold sore on my lip.

  • Renee26

    Damn THUGS looting in the streets damaging other people's property....because they're HAPPY

  • xenaD

    I’m a NE Pats fan! But like a trooper i watched til the very end! ??? Congrats ?

    They say it was a GREAT night!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • hottlanta

    I am still laughing at Kevin feeling like a poor/black man last night. All that money and still couldn't get in.

  • Renee26

    Thank you for the receipts...even still the news reporters say things didn't get "that bad"... it's always a double standard

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yes baby the city was crazy last night!!! We need this win but honestly the defacing property was mostly those Temple, Drexel and Penn students who were doing all that mess. They aren't even from Philly smh. The city feels good this morning and Im proud of it. The damage wasn't that bad just as much as any other city who wins the Super Bowl. It was so much love in the air last night. People were everywhere. Yall gotta understand Philly is a crazy city we give no damns and boo'ed Santa once. And as much as I was scared before the game of what would happen in the streets it all went away last night cause alot of people were peaceful and just walking to city hall. I hate my city sometimes but last night the love I saw between races, ages, income made me cry...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    There were men in eagles green draws on roller skates with green capes on. I aint neva in my life seen that it was so fun!!! I got in at 4:30...

  • Phillybruh

    Did you want them too?

  • Phillybruh

    Nothing, happens to Wentz his play put them in the position to win last night.

  • Coy little wink

    Lawd...why y'all boo Santa ?

    My coworker from Philly said y'all threw batteries at Beyonce for singing the national anthem in a Lakers Jersey.

    Y'all savage!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I love my city lol....They turned over the cars in front of the Bellevue and those big ass flower pots on the Avenue of the Arts. But its cool the city gonna fix all that up... They also tore down the street signals on chestnut street... Macys front window was broken and that WaWa on Broad and Chestnut was raided but oh well the news says all the damage will be taken care of by the end of today...

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Prince hologram was the best part of the half time show and I'm not being funny...... Ah, hahahahaha

  • Phillybruh

    With the exceptions of light poles it was mostly cosmetic.

  • Yoni7

    Just wondering how there is a difference between what is considered "looting" vs. "celebrating" by the media. And to answer your question, no, I don't want anyone shot. I just want the narrative to be consistent.

  • Noirluv45

    I just imagine Sandra's commentary and the thread here if these hooligans were Black.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Ya'll boo'd Santa??? LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

    They said they looted the old navy and t-mobile stores. I don't think it was ignored.

  • Coy little wink

    It wasn't a hologram hun...but you right that was the best

  • Dahl

    I’m glad my city finally won, and outplayed that cheating franchise. Believe it, Philly PD was well prepped for all that activity, just like security was for Kevin Hart’s little dumb behind...

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I heard someone call it a hologram on the radio. Then she said that they gave him a tail, instead of wings. I was like, baby that was his guitar...

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Yes, I guess they forgot to deflate the football this time.

  • Phillybruh

    They got outcoached, the way he ran that clock down in the 4th qtr and guaranteed a field goal or a touchdown. He's the real MVP

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Every team has a performer and they perform when that team goes to the superbowl. NC has Beyonce. Eagles had Prince and that's why he had a tribute. At least that's what I was told... Didn't Prince perform the last time the Eagles went to the bowl?

  • TRUTH

  • hottlanta

    Are black people gonna move out of their white neighborhoods after seeing all of the violence last night. Stop saying riot to make it seem less threatening. Those people were commiting violent criminal acts. Just because someone didn't get shot doesn't mean a crime wasn't committed. Where are the committees to stop this violence. Like they always say if one black person does something the whole race did it but if a white person does something the 1 white person did it.

  • 888

    I agree, but do you see the white people on the canopy? Its just sad cause when a black person does it, they are a menace, but when white people do it, "they are just having fun" its not fair. But no one said it would be right, so in the end, yes all these people need to stop with the f*ckery. Why was that even considered fun? Geez, they are lame find a better way to celebrate.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What do you mean nothing happens to Wentz?
    I read that if the Eagles won last night that Foles was going to get at least $25 million contract.
    The Eagles can't afford both of them and even if they could I doubt Wentz wants to be a back-up quarterback after the season he had even though it was truncated.
    Maybe Wentz will go to the Cardinals since their quarterback retired.

  • Lady_Elle

    So... people NOT of color tore up Philly last night?
    I know this is so... "Chaos in the streets of Philly" was the clue!
    Sandra would've referred to them as thugs otherwise.
    No references to single-parents either. rofl

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It was a long time ago but it still its prevalent today. Just like the "Curse of Billy Penn". There was a long history of buildings in Philly that were not taller than the William Penn Statue on top of City Hall. Once our city started booming in revenue more buildings went up higher than the William Penn (Billy) statue on top of the building. Since the building of those tall skyscrapers in Center City our city has sucked in sports. They call it the Curse of Billy Penn. The "curse" was lifted when the Phillies won but people still think it lingered afterwards but now with this Super Bowl win hopefully the curse is ova....

  • Vonn

    Those (mainly) CAC' s lost their Damn minds. Anyone standing on, or under the Ritz canopy should have been hurt for being so stupid.

  • Phillybruh

    Wentz is in the first year of a four year contract. Foles did an awesome job these last few games, but where they are is due to Wentz and the coach. He was playing lights out all season long. Foles didn't get them to the playoff, Wentz did. I doubt they let either of them go anywhere.

  • Vegas1989

    I agree...First of all black folks ain't going to do dumb stuff like what dude did on the canopy...SMH..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So you think Foles won't be wooed by another team for a chance at a starting QB position rather than a back-up for Wentz?

  • Phillybruh

    Nope because the set up won't be the same. He can go be a starter somewhere else but the offense and defense and most importantly the coach won't be the same.

  • Dahl

    Thanks luv!

  • PhillyFacts

    The Crisco Cops were ready greasing them poles, and that meant nothing. Needless to say love is in the air; minus a few fools.... Philly is no different than any other city, and the damage here was mild compared to Detroit in 1984, or LA in 2000, Boston 2004 to name a few. No one died from the celebrations here last night so, so that's a plus. God Bless! E A G L E S !!!!

    That is not a White neighborhood, it has mixed areas due to so many colleges & grad schools in the area. -they live on campuses and University Townhouses & Apartments near the school zones that are not far from the poorer communities surrounding Philly.

    Most of the Whites are students from all over the country & world. You have Drexel, Temple, LaSalle, The IVY League UPenn, Thomas Jefferson and a number of Medical & Dental and Law Schools.

    It wasn't a hologram. Prince was totally against that! -it was merely a snippet of some of his taped concerts & videos placed on a larger screen.

    yeah Wentz >>>> Foles and he'll cost lot less to boot. That's great Foles went all the way, but the Eagles don't need him.

  • hottlanta

    I said the whites were doing all of the violence.

  • J2PC

    My response was to your "Are black people gonna move out of their white neighborhoods after seeing all of the violence last night?" You're assuming that this is a White neighborhood when it is most likely a school zone. You needed to visit East, West & Rough North Phillay to see that Whites are minority there. lol Most of the time, they are not out walking in public after 6pm (to play it safe) and are protected by private police protecting a large school zone. -cus most of Phillay is a hell-hole. lol

  • hottlanta

    So I guess the black people should have went in at 6pm as well last night to play it safe. You making me laugh so hard.

    Last night was a celebration aka the exception. -I know from experience and the list of warnings (of do's & don'ts) that police give to students in the area. Students can ask for a campus ride or call for a campus escort should they not feel safe or it is after dark.

    -we know the sketchy areas to avoid and which areas become sketchier as the late evening or night approaches. I guess when ignorance is bliss, folks laugh harder. lol

  • hottlanta

    Stop making excuses for white thugs. They celebrate like that all the time. Last night wasn't nothing new. They were all experts.

    "Rowdy Philadelphia Eagles fans ", which is the title white rioters get when compared to "thugs" for black people peacefully protesting. There is a double standard in the way the media cover large groups of crowds whether protesting or celebrating.

    Let's see: no deaths, no injuries... Sounds like a good time to me.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There were no deaths and no injuries. Did you call Freaknic a thugfest?

  • Noirluv45

    I didn't call anything a thugfest. It doesn't matter if there were no deaths or injuries: You and others still would've been throwing Black people under the bus if they behaved in this fashion. Their behavior was wrong, was it not? No excuses...except that they are White.

    I need dignity because I asked a question? You say we’re in a race war, but we’re also in a war against ourselves. You can not expect change until there is unity. I don’t recall insults as a characteristic of unity.
