I agree, and to an extent because we don't know what was said. I am human, and some things people say I can turn the other cheek too, but there are some things, well they call it "Temporary Insanity" for a reason. I don't know what the guy said to him, but it was enough to make him go ballistic. As I read more, apparently this one fan has been a problem since day one. It still is not right, but we aren't all right all the time.

Looked like the fan mouthed "I'm sorry" to Smart right before he got shoved. Both are idiots, but I don't think Smart is as bad of a guy as some people are making him out to be.

There's no real mystery what he said. The fan has admitted he called Smart a "piece of crap."

If the fan had said anything worse, I seriously doubt Smart would have apologized to him.

Smart apologizing for his actions does not in any way prove that the fan didn't use a racial slur

Sure it does. Otherwise I'm pretty sure Smart would have made reference to it in his statement.

Moot point really since there was no racial slur. Fan called him a "piece of crap". Smart has been suspended for 3 games.

i bet the university changes the seating arrangements of the fan. From now on, every camera will be checking that guy out. He is an embarrassment to society and may need counseling.

i feel for marcus. because of that idiot he will be suspending and remembered always for pushing a fan.

Shirley, you can't be serious? Have you ever attended a sporting event in your life? Fan is short for fanatics. They are by definition nuts.

Smart better learn to deal with them. After his suspension, he still has to play at TCU and Iowa State. Do you think those fans are going to try and get into his head?

1) I never said "you all", I said "you guys", I wasn't talking about everyone, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE HAS A GUILTY CONSCIOUS!

2) Why would I stay away? If I never let y'all interact with your betters then y'all will never learn.

The school investigated and asked other fans, reporter, photographers, and camera men if the fan used the N word. No one heard him say it.

Smart is making it up and using it as an excuse. However, the fan definitely said something to get his goat and both are in the wrong.

The fan is paying a heavier price than Smart since Smart only got 3 games. The fan is banning himself for the rest of the season.

No, but the sideline audio does. It really pisses me off smart made a bad decision and then made up some shit that the fan called him the n word. What kind of man tries to make up excuses when he does something wrong, hes probably used to being spoon fed and nothing being his fault(like a lot of todays generation). No way id draft him if im an NBA team, hes been playing like sht first of all, flops, and now is the next Ron Artest. What a scrub.

If the fan leaned down and said something as Smart was underneath the crowd level there is a high probability that the only ones who could hear him were Smart, Orr, and the pointing lady next to him...who is probably also his guest. He's a season ticket holder who probably sits next to the same folks all year so I don't think they would necessarily throw him under the bus either. I don't know what was said but I'd be willing to bet a lot of money it was not "piece of crap". And LOL at the fan paying a heavier price than Smart. He is a fan who is going to a sporting event...Smart is a college athlete who is working for his future.

Spare me.


The fan is getting a ton of negative exposure and is likely under the microscope at his job as an air traffic controller. This incident could have a negative impact on the Orr for the forseeable future while Smart will just bounce off to the NBA and make millions. Yes the fan is to blame for bringing this on himself but to say that Smart is geeting the shortend of this deal is laughable.
