What did we learn today, boys and girls? We learned that Raiders Nation – ever classy – has officially gone international.
A man wearing a Raiders shirt apparently tried to get into multiple fights on his flight. When he finally landed in Manchester (England), he stripped off that Oakland shirt, along with the rest of his clothing, and promptly tried to fight the pilot.
First, the aggression that got everything started.
The woman with him was not entertained with his antics, slapping him in the face at one point.
“He must have been drunk because when he came off the plane, he took his top off and shouted ‘come on then’ in a Manchester accent and was trying to get the captain to fight him,” a witness told the Daily Mail. “Then he carried on taking all his clothes off. I have no idea why. The woman he was with gave him a slap for it.”
Security was eventually forced to taser the 52-year old.
easyJet has already released an apology regarding the belligerent passenger.
“The passenger had arrived into Manchester on flight EZY1328 from Malta,” the company said in a statement after the incident. “The safety and security of its passengers and crew is easyJet’s highest priority and, like all airlines, disruptive behaviour is taken seriously.
“The passenger was met by the police as a result of his behaviour.”
We can only imagine what’s going to happen when the Raiders themselves play a game in London.
