Eagles fans are raising money to troll the Dallas Cowboys with a "We Got DeMarco" banner

New, comments

It's only August but Eagles and Cowboys fans are already in mid-season form.

A group of New York Jets fans recently paid for a plane to fly over New England Patriots practice with a banner that reads "Cheaters Look Up!" This antic has seemingly inspired a group of Philadelphia Eagles fans to troll their own division rival, the Dallas Cowboys. Eric Michael (AKA The Mighty EROCK) has set up a GoFundMe page to raise at least $1,800 to pay for an airplane banner. Here's an excerpt from the page:

"We are raising money to fly a banner over Cowboys Training Camp, Aug 9th, during their Blue/White scrimmage that reads...

"WE HAVE DEMARCO! - Eagles Fans"

The date has been locked down with the flight advertising company. We can pay up to the date of the flight."

The banner obviously refers to how the Eagles signed 2014 NFL leading rusher DeMarco Murray away from Dallas. The Cowboys' success last season was very dependent on Murray. The Cowboys haven't really done anything to replace him, instead opting to place their faith in unproven backup Joseph Randle.

But Eagles fans aren't the only ones raising money for an airplane banner. It appears a group of Cowboys fans are aiming to troll the Eagles as well. New Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy, who was suspended most of the 2014 season and four games of the 2015 season for domestic abuse charges, even donated $300 to their goal:

... which inspired the legendary Jimmy Kempski to come up with this creation:

Boom.

The Eagles and Cowboys are first set to face off in Philadelphia during Week 2 of the 2015 NFL regular season. Something tells me fans are itching for Sept. 20 to get here.
