Dave, after sitting through every game during a season like this, I actually looked forward to Fan Appeeciation Night when I saw it was noted on my ticket for last night's game. In the past, there have been giveaways as you leave the stadium, autographed prizes and events all throughout the game.

Last night, however, Jeff Lurie chose to celebrate "Fan Appreciation" by playing pre-recorded thank you's from a guy who's only been active for a month (Vinny Curry), gave away free season tickets to two people, and our parting gift after we stayed to watch the Eagles lose yet again on our home field? A handful of Sports Authority scratch-off coupons.

Was that supposed to be a joke?

That sucks. So much for the gold standard.

This organization knows how to alienate the fans. Its getting like the old days.

Cancel your season tickets, that'll show 'em! I suggest that at least 15,000 to 18,000 season ticket holders cancel. Don't sell them to someone else, that would keep the revenue stream in place. Cancel, outright. Teach them a lesson!

Let me guess, you're somewhere between 15 and 18k on the waiting list?

They did try to take away $125,000 from a guy with a brain condition who did nothing but try to play for them did you expect much else from him
