The loss of Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 38-35 did not go down well with the fans who enjoyed the event in the city of Philadelphia, because at the end of the commitment they caused some damage.
Apparently, the city center was one of the places where the fans most congregated to enjoy the final of their team. However, at the end of the game, the anger and indignation was reflected in the streets with shouts like “Fu** the Chiefs” and people climbing on light poles and bus stops.
However, and according to some media reports, the anger and frustration would not be due to the defeat itself, but rather due to the refereeing. In the final part of the game, when more tension had been due to the tie at 35 points, Eagles cornerback James Bradberry was penalized for holding KC wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.
This move generated controversy even on the television broadcast since several commentators did not expect to see the handkerchief on the field. Many believed that the action had been incidental contact and that there was no chance of catching the ball.
This fact gave rise to the Kansas City Chiefs being able to finish playing time and later score a field goal with which they would be crowned in Super Bowl LVII. This is his second championship in four years.
It is not the first time that this type of overflowing emotions has caused destruction in the city of Philadelphia. In February 2018, similar episodes occurred amid celebrations for the Eagles’ victory in Super Bowl number 52 after beating the Patriots 41-33.
