Eagles fans donate to Mike Zimmer’s foundation to apologize for behavior
24 January 2018 Eagles News
A nice gesture by a fan base that is stereotyped and for the most part, always framed as the”bad guy.”
When the Eagles took on the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday, videos of pregame and post game antics surfaced everywhere. Sure, their are some bad fans out there, but the rest of the Eagles fan base wants to let everyone know they are not that bad.
The donations, which benefit Minnesota youth through the foundation, were made in the name of Eagles fans looking to apologize, Zimmer’s daughter Corri explained, as ESPN’s Tim McManus reported. As of today, the Eagles fans have donated over $7,000 to Vikings’ head coach Mike Zimmer’s foundation.
So, the next time Eagles fans are generalized and throw balls on Santa are mentioned, everyone better bring up the good deeds they do too. This is a great gesture by a fan base that for the most part is very misunderstood.
