Ah, but are average sports fans intelligent enough in the first place? Actually, intelligent isn't the best word. Moral or ethical is better.

That's a debate for someone more qualified than I. Good question though. I do feel like most people wouldn't take it to that level. I think the only people that would take things to that level are of questionable intelligence anyways. Once you say it you can't take it back. If the guy who wrote that was someone I knew I'd be putting him on blast and severing all ties to him.

Has anyone ever seen "Big Fan" starring Patton Oswalt? Now that's definitely not an average fan... Interestingly, he plays a hardcore NYG's fan.

I've seen that movie, it's pretty great. I've often wondered what I or someone else would do if we were in Oswalt's position. If it were me I'd probably sue the athlete and press charges, I wouldn't want a prick like that playing for the Skins anyways, and on top of that I'd want him to pay for any and all damages occured, i.e. hospital bills, pay for wages lost, etc.

Big Fan is great and should be mandatory watching for all Warpath members. We all have a little "Big Fan" in us, gotta keep things in perspective.

The movie is a true story based on Giantone's life , with a stellar performance by Michael Rapaport as Philadelphia Phil.

One could infer from Giantone's typing that he is only smart enough to work as a toll booth operator.

Correct. Even the dumbest of people understand the concept of unprovoked violence is wrong.

I'd beat his ass, then prosecute. I've accepted that fact that there are many asshole players out there (NBA/NFL/MLB/MLS/NHL/etc) and are human like everybody else. Which is primarily the reason I never put them up on pedestals like many fans do. I don't want their autograph, I don't care if they are going to attend this club I'm visiting, I don't even care if they are sitting next to me in a restaurant. I just want them to produce come game day and act like non-retarded civilians on the outside.

Imo, booze and anger...are two goons always trying to murder...or at least stun Lady Reason so they can get their facetime. For only a temporary moment, the fan turns into the raging fan, and the raging fan's moral compass is going just a bit haywire until he becomes just a fan again.

Totally gonna name drop here, but my mother gave me a football autographed solely by London Fletcher for x-mas (as well as a photo of him + her to prove it) and you can believe me when I say that football and picture will be one of the treasured Redskins-related artifacts for the rest of my natural born life. London Fletcher embodies everything about what a role model should be, and I have no problem giving him the props he deserves for that.

As far as the whole "players of questionable intelligence" thing goes, I wouldn't put any player on a pedestal that didn't deserve it. I'm sure there's a dickhead or two on the Redskins right now, and if I knew who they were I'd probably pull a SmootSmack come gametime and root for the plays they make, but feel a pang of guilt on the inside for rooting for an asshat.

Good thing the league willingly acknowledges that and takes maximum preventative measures to keep that from happening during games, instead of massively promoting it as it is a key source of income.

Oh wait

Speaking of fans, I'm not sure if I would ever hit that "crazy" fan stage in my life. I have seen some fans do things that I would never ever even contemplate. Greeting the Redskins, at Redskins park, when they roll out on the team bus or greet them when they arrive home from away games at Redskins park. I know fans right now that do that every single away game. They end up spending about 3 hours (drive to and there and 45 mins waiting) just to wave at the players on the bus driving past them. Now, to each their own really, but I simply have too many other things going on in my life to ever dedicate myself like that to the Redskins.

Bingo.


I think this has more to do with those idiotic tweets/death threats than intelligence or even morality. Alcohol makes us do some stupid ass things. Combine that with anger and you have something potentially volatile on your hands.

Unless you are referring to another situation, I thought the only flag that was thrown was for Davis. My point was that the refs let the situation continue, instead of ending it when it happen.

Another situation. The one he's talking about happened later on in the game.

Yeah that's something I don't think I'd do. Drive an hour to Ashburn in the middle of the night, stand on the side of the main road into Redskins Park, just to wave at the Redskins as they return, and then promptly drive an hour back home...

I love the Redskins and all, but...

Yeahno.
