Mall of America security threatening to kick out Eagles fans over chant
Philadelphia Eagles fans are taking over Minneapolis ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl, and their loudmouth ways apparently aren’t sitting too well with the security for Mall of America.
According to a report by NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Josh Ellis, security at the Mall of America in Minneapolis threatened to kick out Eagles fans after an extra loud “E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!” chant broke out Friday.
From Ellis’ report:
After a particularly raucous moment and loud Eagles cheer on Friday afternoon, security was on the case looking for who started the chant. We were told by mall security that fans starting the Eagles cheer would be given a warning before eventually being removed from the establishment for starting the chant.

That’s not the only aspect of behavior Eagles fans have been asked to change; they’re also told not to wear the Lane Johnson-popularized dog masks in the mall for safety reasons.
This is the first Super Bowl for the Eagles since the 2004 season, so it’s understandable why their fans would be quite enthusiastic about matters. They just don’t want to end up kicked out of the mall.
