Fan wearing Cowboys jersey to Eagles practice told to remove it or leave

Don’t bother representing for another team if you get invited to attend Philadelphia Eagles training camp.

CSN Philly wrote about how a Dallas Cowboys fan wore a Dez Bryant jersey to Eagles training camp practice. Kind of a troll move, but harmless enough. But Ed Kracz, a beat reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times, tweeted that the fan was told to remove the jersey or leave.

Do you buy that it had nothing to do with the fan wearing a jersey of the rival Cowboys, and that a Tennessee Titans or Los Angeles Chargers fan would have been treated the same way? Me neither.

The Eagles told CSN Philly it wasn’t a team policy, but they find it disrespectful for people who were invited to training camp to wear another team’s jersey.

It seems kind of petty, but the NFC East rivalries run deep. Eagles practice is no place to fly your Cowboys flag.
