08:07 AM ET 11.02 | Fans in Philadelphia aren't known for their hospitality, but Jason Babin believes they are taking things too far these days. Babin questioned the loyalty of some Eagles fans on Twitter this week, but he said Thursday that it was in response to "vile" chants about Andy Reid and others at Lincoln Financial Field during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Falcons. "During the game there was a good section of fans chanting some of the most vile things I've ever heard -- not just at a football game, but in life in general," Babin said. "Talking about attacking Coach, talking about people's wives and kids and chanting them. And I just thought there is no place for that in the NFL. And I'm going to be protective of Coach Reid and Coach [Jim Washburn] and my teammates."

When the Dalai Lama comes into the stadium with a bunch of Tibetan monks and starts chanting negative things about the head coach, it gets noticed.

It sounds like the Iggles may have a home field disadvantage.

Shameful that people have to use bad language around others who simply want to watch men get crippled and maimed.

Philadelphia derives from a Greek word. It literally means " brotherly Love." Honest!
