I watched the local news here in Cleveland in horror this evening, as lame football fans were throwing shit all over the field following a bad call by one of the officials. Now, excuse me, but it's fucking football, not a war, not social injustice and not anything else that's worth showing people on national television what kind of moron you are.
If that wasn't bad enough, the CEO and owner of the Browns get on and act like the whole thing was perfectly OK. What kind of leadership is that? Why don't they just get up and say, "Hey, next time you stop by a game, feel free to act like a complete asshole and injure someone just because you're not getting your way in a stupid game."
The reporter from WEWS was fired up and seriously pissed off, as he got hit twice. I say good for him, he had every right to be pissed, especially after reporting on the comments of the CEO and owner. You don't see a sports guy get that upset over anything, so I give him a lot of credit.
You know what the worst thing is? Later on the officials explain the entire thing, and said that the replay tapes proved conclusively that the play in question (a missed catch) was indeed not a fair catch, and that the replay request did come down before the next play had taken place. Bottom line, what happened was apparently fair, however unfortunate it might have been.
In the end, it's still embarassing to see that kind of dumb shit happen in your own town. Today it sucks to say I'm from Cleveland.
