Why are sports fans becoming increasingly more violent?
We were in complete dismay when we watched a few Philadelphia Flyer fans beat up two New York Rangers fans over a hockey argument after the Winter Classic earlier this month, but now there's this!
An angry commenter on a FoxSports.com team page has threatened the lives of employees after moderators banned him or her from the site for posting an "inappropriate comment".
"All you moderators are c**ksuckers and one day you are going to get your faces caved in to your brain. You think just because you do this over the Internet you cannot be located. You are wrong …. Watch your ass you f**king b*tches. I am coming for you …"
Wow. Talk about an overreaction!
Fox security officials are "not taking this threat lightly" and are "extremely concerned for the safety" of the staff. In fact, they even got the LAPD Threat Management Unit involved who are tracking down the suspect.
First of all, this should be a lesson to those who think it's okay to write threatening messages on internet comment boards behind a veil of anonymity. Cross the line like this anonymous person and the police might figure out a way to make you not-so-anonymous anymore.
Secondly, can people take a chill pill when it comes to sports?
Yes, they are fun to watch and play, but at the end of the day it's just a game, folks. It is a competition meant to entertain the masses. Unless you've got money riding on it, the outcome of a game does not and should not affect your life.
If you discover your blood pressure rising while discussing whether or not Tim Tebow is a good quarterback, you should get some help because there are much more important things in life.
