Stadium Violence

By now, everyone has heard about the San Francisco Giants fan who was beaten outside Dodger Stadium on opening night. He was in the ICU in a coma for a while, but from what I’ve read, he’s awake now and regaining the use of his extremities. While that event was tragic, it seemed to be an isolated incident…. until yesterday.

There were two¬†different instances of violence last night at the football game between the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers. One man, during the game, was beaten in the bathroom and left with what they are calling life threatening injuries. After the game, two men were shot in the parking lot. One of the men was apparently wearing a shirt that read “Fuck the 49ers”. One of them is in critical condition while the other has “less severe injuries”.

I just don’t get it. I love going to sporting events (when I can afford it), but I have never thought about beating or shooting somebody for rooting for the other team. That’s just idiotic. To me, the only reason to shoot somebody is because they’re attacking me or my loved ones. That’s it. I love my teams, but I would never beat anyone who rooted against them. To do so is ridiculously stupid.

The people who perpetrated theses acts are an embarrassment to all sports fans everywhere and I hope that California throws the book at these jackasses.

One thought on “Stadium Violence

  1. I don’t get it either. I went to see the game when the Bengals beat the then undefeated Chiefs, and after the game my buddy and I were leaving and as we were heading through the main area that surrounds the stadium, we saw one guy jump off of a picnic table and sucker punch this guy who was surrounded by other guys. He was wearing a Chiefs shirt. I would have jumped in, but there were nine of them and not so many of us. It’s just fucked up. As much of a lover of alcohol and beer as I am, these incidents are exactly why alcohol needs to be banned from sporting events. They won’t do it though because alcohol helps to draw people in. Getting paid is better than having people jumped and potentially killed at the event.
