What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?
  • "I saw some Redskins fans intimidating two older couples (in their 50s) wearing Eagles jerseys in 2005. It was offensive and inexcusable, and I would have defended the Eagles fans had they been actually touched. The Eagles fans were sitting in their seats, not making a sound."
  • "One time a Redskins fan belittled a female fan of the opposing team so badly she began to cry. He was drunk and was picking fights with everyone and cussed in front of kids, who were sitting all around him."
  • "How about when a whole section of the crowd was tear-gassed, then the gas drifts on to the field, causing players and fans to throw up? Amazing."
  • "An Eagles fan, after running his mouth for about three quarters, was given the option to shut up or be tossed off the top of the stadium."
  • "I saw a full-scale brawl involving blood, a blown eye socket and no security response whatsoever -- and that was in the club section. I can't imagine what it's like in the nosebleeds."
What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?
  • "Beating the Giants on Christmas Eve to make it to the playoffs; it was Amazing."
  • "The blocked field goal against the Cowboys' Mike Vanderjagt that Sean Taylor ran back and was face-masked on, giving the 'Skins 15 more yards and a final play on which to kick a game-winning field goal."
  • "Eh ... RFK has all the memories. FedEX field is about as fun as a cold-water enema."
