I can't stand that, when they are the ones instigating getting angry at me or my friend because a football player or a coach is beyond reproach but all that common courtesy and decency goes out the door if you don't like there person standing right next you.
Were you were making inflammatory comments in a public setting? Sometimes you need to be confronted, especially if your words are especially vulgar or derogatory. Do you have the right to say what you want? Yes, sure, of course you do. But everyone else also has the right to call you out on your bullshit. During the last home game, after a missed pass, a guy a few seats behind me said "Maybe if [they] didn't eat so much fried chicken, their fingers wouldn't be so greasy". I cleaned up the language in the quote, but you get the gist. I took exception to that statement, and told him so. Maybe he was just talking to his friends at the game, but that type of ignorance combined with racial comments thrown around is a detriment to our University, and a poor representation of our fan base. I'm not sure what was said to you, or what you said in the first place, but confronting a person for their comments in a public area is not always a lack of courtesy or decency.
