Eagles fans continued their celebration of the team’s 25–11 win into the parking lot, which in turn, disrupted a live post-game segment by Tampa’s local ABC affiliate.
While reporter Michael Paluska was attempting to solicit the reactions of Tampa Bay fans leaving the stadium, he was instead swarmed by joyous Eagles fans during the live segment.
“These are not the live spots you want to do after the Bucs loss. People are coming out screaming in front of the camera,” said Paluska. “They said it looked more like a Eagles home game out here. There’s a lot of things that happened... and I’ll try to get through a live shot.”
The reporter did his best to handle the surrounding distractions of the opposing fans screaming and yelling, but he couldn’t completely hold back his raw criticism in the heat of the moment.
“The Eagles fans were annoying before the game, they are even worse now,” Paluska quipped.

Ultimately, Paluska was forced to send the hijacked segment back to the studio after aptly describing the chaos as simply something that “happens” after a home loss.
While the Eagles improved to 3–0, Tampa Bay fell to 2–1 with Monday’s loss. The Bucs will have a chance to rebound in Week 4 on the road against the Saints.
