Eagles First To Cut Season-Ticket Holders A Break, Will Others Follow?

Given the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season due the COVID-19 pandemic, it certainly makes sense for NFL franchises to allow fans to opt out of the current season.

Most stadiums will be less than half-filled this season because of Corona restrictions. 

But perhaps Philadelphia Eagles season-ticket holders could thank their polarizing and Adolph Hitler- quoting wide receiver DeSean Jackson for the break the team announced Wednesday afternoon via email:

 “We understand that, even with safety measures in place, you may have concerns about attending games in person. As such, we would like to offer you the option to defer your Season Tickets for the 2020 season. If you choose this option, we will pause your account for 2020 and resume your account in 2021 with the same seat locations you would have had in 2020. If applicable, your SBL and any other ticket or club seat license agreement will remain in effect and you will resume season ticket purchases in 2021.”

The timing of the Eagles’ email seems a bit curious. Desean Jackson’s controversial social media posts have been dominating the news. Jackson has had to apologize for coming off as anti-Semetic over Twitter. His friend, former NBA player Stephen Jackson, fanned the controversy by coming out in support of DeSean.

Well, now Eagles fans have something else to talk about rather than another one of their receivers getting caught in a racial firestorm.

Anyone know if Riley Cooper is an Eagles season-ticket holder?
