CBS NFL analyst Boomer Esiason had an eventful train ride when he was confronted by an upset Baltimore Ravens fan after his team lost the AFC Championship Game.
While waiting at the Baltimore Amtrak station Sunday after the Ravens’ 17-10 loss at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs, a Ravens fan confronted Esiason and two other CBS analysts: Nate Burleson and Bill Cowher.
Esiason revealed the details on WFAN’s morning show Monday, with the former quarterback calling the fan an ‘a**wipe, douchebag’ and suspecting he was drunk.
The fan complained to Esiason and Cowher that the NFL “rigged” the game — with Taylor Swift part of the upset Ravens’ man’s theory.
Cowher got the fan involved — who got in the face of the Hall-of-Famer and former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach while trying to watch the NFC Championship Game on Esiason’s iPad.

The supporter was clearly upset after his team lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game
‘Coach is great because he’ll defend the NFL, like “I don’t want to hear crap from some drunk-ass fan who just lost a bet.” He will die with that shield…’ said Esiason of Cowher.
“If he gets closer, I might have to stand up and punch this guy in the face. I’m pissed now.
“I’m trying to watch the game and this idiot is yelling about how the NFL is rigged and it’s this, that and the other thing.”
Esiason said that Burleson was away from the group, but when he arrived, the former wide receiver was “ready to get out of his suit and rip this guy’s face off … He was right in the middle of it all.” ‘
Gauging the situation, Esiason figured he’d be the one to step in if things got physical — since he has the least to lose while Cowher is based in Canton and Burleson has a role at CBS News.
‘If I did, no one would care. If (Cowher) had done that, it would have been all over the place,’ Esiason explained, although WFAN co-host Gregg Giannotti disagreed.
Another Ravens fan stepped in and cooled the tension before anything got physical. But Baltimore police were involved before the situation dissipated.

“Why is this nimrod coming at us screaming that it’s rigged and they wanted Taylor Swift in the Super Bowl?” Esiason said.
CBS has the rights to cover the Super Bowl this year — meaning Esiason, Cowher and Burleson will all be in Las Vegas in the coming days.
Unfortunately for the conspiracy theorist, the Kansas City Chiefs will play for Super Bowl LVIII glory against the San Francisco 49ers.
