Jeremy Roenick Calls Philly Fans “Crazy Sons of Bitches,” and it Wasn’t a Compliment

Roenick_fansThere are so many things to hate about this screen grab

Oh my. I temporarily blacked out while watching this video. 

Jeremy Roenick is a jackass. I’d rip Jay Mohr and the other dude who I don’t know sitting on set, but really, why bother?

Via Puck Daddy comes this clip from “Master Debaters,” a new FUEL TV (?) show debuting tonight at 10:30. In it, Mohr and his greasy-haired cohorts discuss the country’s most annoying fans. Guess how long it took them to get to Philadelphia?

Exactly one minute.

In voting Philadelphia the most annoying fans, the following exchange took place. [Don’t think we don’t know what they’re doing, though: releasing the clip to get people riled up and talking about the show, which will inevitably be cancelled before Halloween]

More: I say Philadelphia are the most disgusting human being I’ve even seen in my life.

Unknown: They’re terrible.

Moor: They pick fights with cops, they spit on the players…

Roenick: They booed Santa Claus…

Moore: They boo Santa Claus. They threw snowballs at Michael Irvin on a friggin’ stretcher, the guy might have had a broken neck and they threw freaking snowballs at him [editors note: no, we didn’t]. 

Roenick: Do you remember when Tie Domi of the Maple Leafs were playing the Flyers and he was in the penalty box and that Philadelphia fan dove through the glass into the penalty box after the guy?

Mhhor: Didn’t work out well for them.

Roenick: That is messed up fans. Philadelphia fans [are] crazy, crazy sons of bitches.

Unknown: It doesn’t matter what event, what sport it is, the fans are ridiculous. They hate you. They had a jail under Veteran’s Stadium. Like it’s crazy there.

 

There’s mohr, too. I guess they forget about the stabbings, DUIs, and fights involving California sports fans. Or the Cowboys fan who tasered a marine at the Jets game on Sunday.

Yeah, this show is going to be canceled in a minute. And as for you, JR, you were dead to us when you cried after the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals. Go to hell, you ungrateful prick.

Watch the video after the jump. Caution: blood will boil.

  1. ehhh, i don’t know about this one, Kyle. sounds like a poorly written comedy routine, not a seriously malicious conversation. the subject will generate ratings for them just as it will generate page hits for you.
    nothing but love.

  2. “Do you remember when Tie Domi of the Maple Leafs were playing the Flyers and he was in the penalty box and that Philadelphia fan dove through the glass into the penalty box after the guy?”
    Well he does have a point there


  3. That was nice of him to congratulate us at the end on the geniuses at Master Debaters calling us the most annoying sports fans. I would take more heed of this if it were Snooki saying it than these clowns. I have it on good authority that Eric Byrnes was never once asked for an autograph – that kind of hurts their credibility at the get-go.

  4. Wow. The way Mohr told that wheelchair story, I got the same feeling that I get when I have a friend that I know that lies a lot. He is such a shithead, no wonder his career is in the fucking toilet. I feel like Roenick is trying to be funny and play along, more than rip Philadelphia (but that was uncalled for, should’ve stuck up for us). The Santa Claus bit is so tired. I lose complete respect for anyone who references that.

  5. This is disgusting, and so misleading to the rest of the country that has no clue, cause they’ve never been here, Where the hell do Eric (Has Been) Byrnes, Jay (never was) Mohr, Jeremey (Still Hanging On) Roenick, and who ever that other guy is get off talking about Philly this way…What the hell is this show anyway ?

  6. I’d say the most annoying fans are the one’s who leave the seats empty in their home team’s stadium. Just say’n. If i were a player, i’d rather have enthusiasm in the stands, good or bad, than total indifference.

  7. The “Philly fans are the worst” thing is just tired.
    God forbid a fan base give a shit about their teams. Do we sometimes get a little out of control? Of course, but what fan base (or group of humans, for that matter) that cares don’t once in awhile? I mean, what would be worse: Phillies fans boo Santa, but sell out CBP for the rest of eternity, or the Marlins, Nationals, Braves, Astros, Rays, D-Backs, etc. play in half-empty or nearly empty stadiums night after night?
    You know which fans I think are the worst? The ones who don’t exist, or don’t give a shit.
    On a side note, I’d love to hear a European soccer fan’s perspective on this subject. If here, the worst thing a person can do is boo and throw things at players, I’d love to know what kind of insanity those people consider to be out of line. They’re called “Soccer Hooligans” for a reason, ha ha.

  8. No accountability up there on that stage. Just say whatever the hell you feel like no matter if it happened or didn’t. I give the show two to three weeks before it’s yanked.
    There wasn’t any snow when Irvin went down, it was October 10th (Week Five) in Philly. Get yer facts straight before you open your mouths you jackasses.

  9. @Cataldi’s Nose That video was hilarious! But I love how they make it seem that philly fans just act this way outta boredom. 1. That jackass from the maple leaves threw his drink on one of the fans, but no let’s ignore that because we wanna make the fans look like they are outta control and crazy. 2. Santa was FUCKING DRUNK and has stated in MANY interviews that he deserved to be booed and have 1 damn snowball thrown at him! Pathetic find something relevant to reference or shut up!
    Plus I was watching the union vs utah game and anytime one of their players tried to score their fans would throw streamers at the goalie to distract him to make it easier to score. But of course nobody is as bad as Philly.
    p.s that 12 year old kid sounds awesome! Reminds me of the last flyers vs pittsburgh game I went to in Philly where this 6 year old kid had a stuffed penguin on a noose and was swinging it around.

  10. 1) the santa claus story? really thats the best you got?!? pathetic… at least if you are going to rip us, use some modern and accurate examples. Everyone knows that we booed santa and threw snowballs at him b/c he was drunk acting like an ass.
    2)@ Jay Mohr, i used to like you, but if we are so disgusting, then why do a)free agents take less money/years to come here(cliff, halladay), and b)why would a life long philly player take out a billboard on 95 thanking us for being so awesome(akers)…

  11. I’m surprised that J.R. didn’t break down and cry because he never had the chance to be booed in Philadelphia, kind of like when the ‘Hawks won the Cup.

  12. Actually…it is a compliment, being annoying is what we’re supposed to be to the opposition.
    Anyway…JR was always a bit of a pussy in the corners don’t you think? and was Jay Mohr ever really funny? A poll of the relevant current athletes would be way more credible and entertaining. Over the years you’ve had the Mike Schmidts and the Scott Rolens who imagine a fans roll as pay for your ticket, sit down and shut the f*ck up but we’ve also had our Cliff Lee’s. We need to get over it and embrace it.

  13. FishBone – dead on!
    Boris Johnson – dead on!
    Fact is, Philly is scapegoat for these discussions. Plain and simple. When it comes to fans and the most annoying/worst ones, Philly has been typecast into that role.

  14. This whole thing is just a sad, old, and easy way to come up with a TV segment or article when shitty sports commentators have nothing to talk or write about. When are people going to get that the same old drunken shenannigans happens in most sports cities, especially the top-tier ones like Philly who have some of the most passionate,knowledgeable, and genuine fans out there.
    Where is all the media coverage and fan-bashing with the incidents that happen in all the other cities? Just look at the past six months!! (Pittsburgh taser incident, cowboy fan taser incident, Fan beating and shooting at SF v Oakland game, incident with baseball fan being beaten into a coma). I find it a little ridiculous that the fat shit that puked on someone here got as much attention as the shit that went down in California sports stadiums recently. I bet if that taser incident happened in another city, it wouldn’t have come close to the story it was here. I bet if those clowns in the green suits next to the penalty box in Vancouver lived in Philly, our fanbase would probably take another hit.
    Its not as if getting drunk and throwing things or fighting is exclusive to Philly…Sure we’re a little rambunctious, but again, no more than any other city…and its a result of our passion and commitment to our teams. As other people have said, I’d rather have a huge market and great fanbase with a few bad apples ,than a fanbase that A) either doesn’t show up or care (Florida baseball teams, nationals) or B) Are complete frauds and bandwagon jumpers (IE Penguins and yankees fans).
    I don’t even understand how the issue still has steam with new media and technology the way it is today.

  15. Despite the fact that everyone on that show is a total loser. why are we the worst fans when every other sports team has the same problems drunk idiots who give the rest a bad name. People seem to confuse passionate fans with drunkards. They can all eat shit.

  16. 1 the booing of Santa in Philly is the oldest clice
    2 No snow on the field when Irvin got hurt
    3 Domi squirted his water bottle over the glass
    4 EVERY new stadium has a jail it in
    5 JR threw a check in a all star game which is the same as farting in a crowed elevator, you just don’t do it
    6 I don’t ever remember hearing about shootings, stabbings and a little boy get run over in Philly

  17. I liked how they combined throwing snow balls at Jimmy Johnson and cheering while Michael Irvin was on a stretcher into one story..
    next time it will..remember that time Michael Irvin was dressed in a santa suit and got snow balls thrown at him while he laid on a stretcher.

  18. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE
    lol at the story now transforming into we threw snowballs at Irvin. Philly fan store are the stuff of legend and lore and like that stuff, its gets changed with each fan / hater passing the story on. I hope they all get raped with a pitchfork

  19. YAWN! Yet another limp dick, brainless turd of an ex-athlete turned media whore takes a potshot at Philly. Is this even supposed to be news anymore? Frankly speaking, it’s not even worth getting up a good mad-on these days. All it does is make me tired.

  20. “Speaking of JR… can someone tell why does EA sports think he is a legend?”
    I really didn’t see a need to include two Blackhawks from the same Cup-less era of the team’s history on an NHL Legends pool that can’t even comprise a full team.

  21. At least JR has his name on the cup; oh, wait, never mind. JR should call Mitch Williams for the PR advise. He seriously blew an opportunity to make a legendary mark on his legacy with Philly. But instead he blew that just like he blew every chance he had at winning a cup. Losers gonna lose.

  22. What makes me angry is the fact that JR didnt stick up for Philly after playing here and saying that he loves Philadelphia. Jay Mohr did most of the talking, JR just gave the old cliche snowballs at Santa. You do have to admidt the fan who went after Tie Domi was asking to get his ass kicked when he started leaning on the glass

  23. if i knew who any of these idiots were besides Jr, who is now dead to me, or what show or station this was on i would care but frankly im guessing none of them minus Jr has even stepped into philly let alone been to a sporting event so let them say what they want. Hopefully they do come see a game and we can give them some real brotherly love.

  24. All these “points” they bring up are 10 plus years old.
    Santa claus incident happened close to SIXTY FUCKING YEARS AGO.
    Jay Mohr has always been an unfunny cocksucker. even in this age where public figures reinvent themselves, and are constantly in the spotlight this prick cant get a job.
    Jeremy, et tu brute? all we did was support you. I want the the game where you were injured, and every fan was silent for a good 2o minutes. after you were escorted off ice, we gave you a loud ovation.
    I even went to the game when you returned. I was excited to see my favorite flyer back on the ice again. I am sure every person in that stadium was excited to see you again.
    To completely rip us like that is a complete slap to the face and I am almost glad that your second Profession is going up in flames.
    all in all, it was a ratings move with two washed up Sports stars, an unknown Black man (always seems like there is one, eh?) and a fucking asshole “comedian” who somehow is giving a paycheck. also, did you notice he only mentioned what happened to himself? what a bastard.

  25. Hahaha why does everyone care so much about what the national media thinks? Seriously whooooo cares. The national media, especially ESPN, is a fucking joke. I laugh at the stupidity of these shows more than anything. And the only way Jay Mohr can even try to stay relevant is by making up some stories and making fun of Philly fans. It’s so pathetic that it’s funny. LOOK AT THAT LINEUP!! WHO THE FUCK ARE THEY!? AND WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?! hahahahaha this show is hilarious!!
    Let them say whatever they want. I’ll be too busy trying to figure out who the fuck they are that I wont hear their inaccurate, misguided, broken-record insults.

  26. An open letter to Master Debaters …
    If you’re going to insult our fan base over stuff that happened 40 years ago … please, at least get the anecdote right.
    Jay, please, for the love of christ, we all know you love to hear yourself talk, but you’re chomping at the bit at every opportunity to talk over your guests.
    Who the hell is Na’Im?

  27. oh and Eric Bynes … That story was actually REALLY funny. I can see where YOU wouldn’t think so, being on the receiving end of it and all, but it was. That got a good laugh out of me …

  28. Seriously no one said anything about the bottom scroll? Phillies Fan threw D batteries at JD Drew? That was the best part of the picture and blog!
