Philadelphia Eagles? Need second opinions.

My buddy is an Eagles fan, and that's totally OK with me. What is not OK is that he exclusively refers to them as the "Iggles." He claims this is what other Philly fans call the team but I just cannot accept that an entire group of fans would adopt such an emasculating nickname.

So my question is are any of you Eagles fans, and is there any merit to this crappy "Iggles" nickname? Or should I continue to berate him (as I always have) every single weekend when he inevitably mentions it.

Not an Eagles fan, however, your friend is correct.

Continue to berate him, that's what friends are for.

"Death chart" is what he kept for dog fighting. "Depth" chart is what he flew up.

Re: Philadelphia Eagles? Need second opinions.

Philly fans are world-wide...and we're pretty despicable in San Dog as well...next time any of you are in town come to Plum Crazy (WFS) to watch the game with the rest of us!!

Re: Philadelphia Eagles? Need second opinions.

Vick did fly up the death chart.. people who want him taken out for his actions off the of the field.

But, this is about the "iggles". Second best NFL Team in Pennsylvania.

Re: Philadelphia Eagles? Need second opinions.

I've been a die-hard Philly fan since I was 8 years old. That being said I only refer to them as the "iggles" every now and then and usually in tongue and cheek fashion. Maybe my other bretheren do it differently.
I'm cut off from the pack. I live in Oklahoma so I'm surrounded by *shudder* Cowboys fans.
