One of the bigger Eagles fan personalities out there, The Mighty EROCK, (Eric Michael), has created a GoFundMe project geared to doing what Eagles fans love to do: trolling Cowboys fans.
The project involves flying a banner above Cowboys training camp stating “We Got DeMarco!” The goal has been reached, but with more money donated towards the cause, Eagles Nation could certainly add a few bells and whistles to this prank.
The Eagles play Dallas in the second week of the season, hosting them in a 4:25 nationally televised game at The Linc.
UPDATE: 8/9/15, 5:09 PM
The pilot tasked with flying the Eagles banner over Cowboys practice has died. He passed in an accident while the plane was taking off from Los Angeles. EROCK has stated that all money compiled in this project will be donated to his family. Philadelphia Sports Nation sends his family our condolences in this difficult time.
EROCK has converted the above GoFundMe link into a fundraiser for the pilot’s family. We encourage all to donate, no matter how much.
UPDATE: 8/9/15. 10:01 PM:
It turns out that the pilot set to fly the Eagles plane did not crash. Another pilot suffered a tragic death, passing during a crash while lifting off, and thus the airport was closed. . Philadelphia Sports Nation sends his family our condolences in this difficult time, and the GoFundMe project funds will go to his family.
