Idiotic sports fans

I realize that the word “fan” comes from the word “fanatic.” What I don’t understand is the totally unacceptable behavior displayed by fans when things are not going in their teams’ favor. Booing and heckling (“If you had one more eye, you’d be a cyclops!”) the officials is part of the game, but some of these fans consider blown calls to be the equivalent of finding their house burglarized.

Last week, NFL referee Ed Hochuli clearly made a mistake in the Denver Broncos vs San Diego Chargers game, which directly led to Denver’s winning the game by 1 point. The man admitted he made a mistake and apologized, but he is still getting hate e-mail from San Diego fans.

As the saying goes, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.” If any fans were stupid enough to make threats (and I’m sure there were), they should be tracked down and spend some time in prison during football season with no television privileges.
