If you watch/listen to a Philadelphia Eagles game on the television or radio or internet you will hear the crowd at Veteran's Stadium doing the Eagles cheer.
"We had a pretty good following wherever we went and we had that in New York and Washington. It was different in Philadelphia. It's a different type of fan here. The other places are difficult as well, but here the fans are real blue-collar and tough. I enjoyed the fans' passion for the game. There were a lot of places we played where I would say the teams did not enjoy the home field advantage. Here, there was and is a definite home-field advantage."
-Troy Aikman on Philadelphia Eagles fans
