Basketball incident

I know you are all waiting for comment on the fight that broke out at the Pacer game last weekend. Here's the quick comment as I will post my true feeling on the website as I think this deserves a little more indepth study. ;-)

First, I think all players should be suspended for the year and Artest should be handed at least a two year suspension. I think that these "roll models", as everyone likes to call sports figures, should have enough common sense to hold back their aggression. Also, they are too young to understand the real world. A message to the players: You make a lot of money playing games. Think about it. You are just grown up children. Get a grip on reality.

Second, I think that John Green, the fan who threw the cup at Artest, should be charged with assault and banned from attending any major sporting events. This includes his son's little league baseball games. This guy is the epitome of what fans have become today. I've been to my share of sporting events and I think the fans have gone way of the edge. All they do is drink beer and harass the players. Hey Idiots! It is only a game. A GAME. Not life or death! A GAME! It does not mean anything. Nothing. Nada. You are so stupid to pay so much to see a bunch of grown men play GAMES and get so mad. Put things into perspective. OH, and get a life, too.

There you have it. Later!

I definitely agree, all sports is these days is overgrown toddlers in short shorts tossing a ball around. Any moron can do that in their backyard for free.
