76ers won’t discipline Mike Scott for scuffle at Redskins-Eagles game, team says

Mike Scott won’t be disciplined for his involvement in a scuffle with Philadelphia fans ahead of Sunday’s Redskins-Eagles opener, but the 76ers forward hopefully learned not to wear rival colors in Philly.

It all started when Scott, a Virginia native who was traded from the Clippers to the Sixers last season, posted a photo of himself on Twitter wearing a Redskins jersey and hat before heading to the game. Some fans tried to warn him it was an unsafe move, but Scott didn’t seem to care.

“What gon happen,” Scott replied to one user.

Things escalated when Scott reached Lincoln Financial Field and approached an Eagles tailgate to take pictures of a coffin surrounded by Redskins paraphernalia. Even though he was accompanied by Sixers security, Scott was unrecognized and became engaged with some hostile fans.
