It appears that the City of Brotherly Love may not exactly be home to the most welcoming fanbase. According to a recent poll from USBETS, Philadelphia Eagles fans were voted the most likely to start a fight at an NFL game. And there's more: Eagles fans were also voted most likely to win a fight.

"Not only do fans feel that Eagles fans are most likely to start a fight, but they're also most likely to win one as well," USBETS explained. "Philadelphia might be known as 'The City of Brotherly Love,' but apparently not when it comes to football." 

Let's be real here: the Philadelphia fanbase doesn't exactly have the best track record when it comes to past behaviors. Philadelphia fans infamously threw batteries at J.D. Drew when he didn't sign with the Philadelphia Phillies after they drafted him No. 2 overall in 1997. They also booed and threw snowballs at a horrendous representation of Santa Claus back in 1968.

The Raiders, Steelers, Patriots and Cowboys rounded out the top five of the "fans who would start a fight" section of the poll, while the Raiders, Steelers, Bills and Cowboys came in under Eagles supporters for "fans most likely to win a fight."

As far as which fanbases would stop a fight if they witnessed one at an NFL game, Seahawks supporters were ranked No. 1, followed closely by Vikings fans, 49ers fans, Cardinals fans and Titans fans. Colts fans, look away: Indy supporters were ranked as the fans most likely to lose a fight.

The poll is a result of 2,000 fans being surveyed in October -- 50% of respondents were male and 50% were female. The average age of respondents was 34.
