Cowboys fan at Eagles training camp asked to leave or remove jersey

Cowboys fan at Eagles training camp asked to leave or remove jersey

Who doesn't love a good tale about a Dallas Cowboys fan being inconvenienced?

That's apparently what happened Tuesday over at the NovaCare Complex where the Eagles had a morning session of training camp.

Ed Kracz, a beat reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times, posted a photo of a fan rocking a No. 88 Cowboys jersey and later followed it up by saying, "Fan in #Cowboys jersey told to leave or take it off. Team policy. Said it would be the same if it were any other team jersey too."

Poor guy.

We asked the Eagles about it and they said it's not technically an official team policy, it's more of a common courtesy thing for people who were invited to training camp at the NovaCare Complex not to wear opposing team's gear as it could be viewed as disrespectful. Fans in attendance today were guests as the practice was not open to the general public.

Sixers players react to Gordon Hayward's horrific leg injury

You absolutely hate to see it.

That's how the sports world felt Tuesday night when Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury during the NBA opener against the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The injury, which is graphic, can be seen here. Hayward has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle.

Instantly, an outpouring of support spread across the NBA.

Here is some reaction from Sixers players:

Eagles rookie Sidney Jones knows about tough injuries. He's recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.

And the terrible injury produced some powerful scenes and images.

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.
