Eagles running back LeSean McCoy leaves 20-cent tip on $61.56 bill, restaurant says

LeSean McCoy is a good running back. And, it would appear, a bad tipper.

A Philadelphia burger joint posted a photo of the receipt left by the Eagles star to its Facebook page, adding that McCoy had left a 20-cent tip on a $61.56 bill on Monday afternoon.

"The twenty cent tip that the Eagles' LeSean McCoy just left our server on his $60 check is going to come in really handy for that new official NFL McCoy jersey he had his heart set on," the message posted to PYT's Facebook page reads. "That is a .03% tip. New record!"

Rob Knelly, McCoy's server at the restaurant, told NJ.com that the running back's party was being loud.

"As soon as they sat down, they were pretty rude," Knelly said. "I asked some questions; they weren't really responsive. They were cursing, making derogatory comments. I put their order in and forgot one of their appetizers, which I apologized for. They ordered things and, once they got it, said 'We ain't eating this s---. We don't want it.'"

When reached for comment by a reporter for the Philadelphia Daily News, McCoy said, "It's bull----," but declined to elaborate.



McCoy signed a five-year, $45 million contract extension with the Eagles in 2012.

Knelly, a Baltimore Ravens fan, told the paper he did not recognize McCoy's friends but believes they were also football players.

"They were extremely rude," he said. "I kept my cool for as long as I could, where you just don’t want them yelling and cursing you."

Some Facebook users, though, criticized the restaurant for posting the receipt.

"Bad form PYT," Aaron Pruzaniec wrote. "Posting this is disturbing and unprofessional. Have you read your Yelp page?"

McCoy's tip is in stark contrast to the one that was left in June by his teammate, Lane Johnson, during the team's annual "rookie dinner." Johnson, a second-year offensive lineman, tweeted a photo of the $17,747 bill, which included an automatic gratuity of $472.20.
