At first, it seemed like an isolated incident: When KDFW/Channel 4 reported the news that Dallas Cowboys star running back DeMarco Murray is leaving for the Philadelphia Eagles, its website included a vine of a fan torching a Murray jersey. Here it is, with a H/T to Fox 4.
Then KTVT/Channel 11 had a report simply headlined Cowboys Fans Burning DeMarco Murray Jerseys. It includes the same Vine, it also included this Twitter pic from Cowboys fan Kevin Keogh.
