    I was just watching Sportscenter, and I'm not a huge BBall fan, but find it totally inappropriate for players to be fighting with fans...regardless of who threw the first cup. Fouls happen. If I were a random fan in the stands-shoot, hit me again, I'll own your team in a few hits...hit me again biotch! Another case of thugs in the lime light...i say suspend the a-holes for life. Kids look up to these guys for what again???

    Just saw it too. I think all those fockers should have their asses handed to them. They have absolutely no business going onto the stands like that. Just another reason that I will NEVER go to watch a so called "professional" sports game. I'm not going to fund all the overpaid clown BS that goes on

    Let's just say that I am on the opposite spectrum as you two. And I'll leave it at that.

    I'm just glad that the worst thing NASCAR drivers do is drop the "F" and "S" bombs every so often.
    They actually appreciate their fans.

    Just had gotten back from watching an outstanding HIGH SCHOOL football game - two great teams engaged in a well played, hard fought game that went into two overtimes. Great fans, great support. Then I see the footage of the NBA gangsta league lowlights - reminds me of which is better - high school sports or NBA? Thanks NBA for reinforcing what I already knew.

    I was eating that stuff up last night. I think that the players need to set an example and have a lot of patience with the fans, but let's face it, they are people too.

    It's like when you go into a resturaunt and see someone treating a waitress poorely, or at least not being totally polite. Yes it is their job to serve you, but that does not give anyone an excuse to be rude even if they mess up an order - it really ruins their night, and there is a better method.

    Similarly, just because someone is getting paid to play a sport doesn't grant the fans carte blanche to be irresponsible and throw things at them. Heckle all you want, but when you start getting physical be it by throwing something, punching, whatever, you got to be ready for it to come back atcha.

    I am not excusing what they players were doing, but I think you got to cut them a little slack. And it sure was fun to watch!!! I wish I could have been there /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    A much better way to handle it that would've sent a message to morons who disrupt games in the future would have been for the players to stop, walk over to the area it came from, point at the fan, and waive over security. With the gazillion cameras going, I'm sure the security folks could've identified the idiot who did it, and escorted them out of the arena. The message would've been sent and the players would've had a bit more class.

    they routinely do this...ever seen a San Diego Charger and Oakland Raider game? The police increase the # of units there to handle the out of control fans. Yes, the player is human, but its not his job to handle the unruly fan-hes there to play...thats it. I'd be PO'd too, but theres something to be said for a man in control of his own emotions in a situation like that. Hate to say it, 2 wrongs don't make a right..and I'm sure the event will only hurt him in the end (monetarily at least).

    Hit me! hit me again! Each hit has got to be worth at least 10 mil easy. I'll sue the player, the players manager, the players momma for raising someone who cant control their temper, and I'll sue the arena for inadequate security.

    What do ya all expect when the pro sports hire a bunch of Thugs to play ball. The fans are just acting just like the people they see playing pro sports.
    Scum Thugs like Rodman started all this crap. Pro sports is going down the Toiliet. I say. Give em all full autos /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Last man standing wins. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
