Eagles fan trolls team with dying wish about player pallbearers

A Philadelphia Eagles fan took a brutal shot at his favorite NFL team with a dying wish, according to his obituary.

Jeffrey Clayton Riegel passed away at the age of 56 on Aug. 18, per his obituary published in the Press of Atlantic City.

The pertinent passage where Riegel absolutely destroys the Eagles is as follows:

He was beloved by all. God gave Jeffrey the miracle of time to prepare which allowed him to verbalize his last wishes. He requested to have 8 Philadelphia Eagles as pall bearers so the Eagles can let him down one last time.

Boom. Roasted. reports that after inquiring the “Eagles did not immediately respond to requests for comment.”

Yeah, probably a good call. What could the team possibly say in response to that epic slam?

It’s not uncommon in the least for an obituary to feature some comment or reference to the deceased’s sports loyalties, or lack thereof (more on that here). But Mr. Riegel’s savage slam is among the best ever.
