Eagles Fans Dish Out the Ultimate Insult to Patriots Fans on Their Own Turf


New England Patriots fans who are trying to forget what happened in Super LII will have a stark remindern for the preseason kickoff — and right in Gillette Stadium’s own neighborhood.

A Massachusetts-based Philadelphia Eagles fan got a billboard put up right down the street from the Patriots home in Foxborough that reminds Patriots fans who beat them in Super Bowl LII.

“Go Birds. World Champs,” the billboard, located on Route 1 in Foxborough, reads.

In the middle is an image of someone wearing the Eagles dog mask (symbolizing the Eagles “underdog” image before the Super Bowl). To his right is an Eagles player wearing number 41 with “MVP” on the back of his jersey. To his left is a Patriots player wearing number 33, being tackled.

In case you forgot, 41-33 was the final score of Super Bowl LII.

The fan tweeted back in June that her co-worker, a Pats fan, would pay to put a billboard up if she got 4,100 likes and 3,300 retweets for her post showing Brandon Graham stripping the ball from Tom Brady in the Super Bowl. He thought she had no chance in Pats country.

But she easily reached those goals, and then some, and then launched a GoFundMe page to reach the $5,000 needed to put up the billboard.

They reached the funding goal and now the billboard is up, just in time for Thursday night’s preseason game between the Patriots and Eagles.

It was originally supposed to say “No one likes us, but we don’t care,” but was changed.

The GoFundMe page has remained open as they are now looking to get $10,000 in donations for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz’s AO1 Foundation, which has a mission of “uplifting individuals and communities around the world by demonstrating God’s love for His people.”

The group has raised about $6,500 for Wentz’s foundation so far.

How long it will remain up is not clear, but one fan tweeted that he thought it would be up until the end of the month.

Pats coach Bill Belichick is for using bulletin board material to inspire his troops, now he has billboard material.
