The fan is an embarassment to fans everywhere, and part of me likes the fact that Smart was not going to take his crap anymore. Smart was suspended, as he should be...what will happen to the fan? Probably nothing but I wish he and people like him would just STFU
He can be subject to some retribution, like being a called a POC back to his face or being called some other names. That is is about the extent of the "retribution." There is no reason to get all bent out of shape because some one in the stands is talking crap to you. You don't like what he has to say, well that is life. People are going say things you don't like and it is their right and you have to learn how to deal with it within the rules.

If you want to get in an athletes face and engage a confrontation then you better be ready to deal with the consequences. And for the record I have no problem with fans yelling and even ribbing opposing teams players...you just better know when enough is enough.
It's not just any old public setting, it is a basketball arena. This kind of crowd interaction taunting the players is allowed and accepted to a certain degree.

I say they set up barriers between the players and the fans...

It won't stop the taunting and it will just be something else for the players to run into and get hurt. And if a player is really upset they're just going to jump over it.

I guess he didn't get the memo...and it still doesn't change anything I posted about possible repercussions from an employer. Once it starts negatively reflecting on their business they tend not to give a shit if it was a basketball arena or not.

I'm pretty sure the NCAA and the NBA can find ways to make it safe.

Barriers definitely wouldn't create more injuries than rows of cameras and people.

LOL...what rules? I am talking about common decency! Where are the written down? I am just saying that I have doubt that this pansy ass fan would not dare say those things to Smart's face if thousands of people were not around. I just do not get why people thing that because they are at a game, they get carte blanche to say what they want. If he had said that to Smart on the street, I think that the outcome would have been different.

Hey, I'm just glad everyone is not on here talking about how Sams is going to hell for being gay.

This board has really grown and matured over the years.

You're splitting hairs here. Whether he went "into the crowd" and how many steps he took, whether he was actually in the stands, etc is NOT the point. An athlete NEVER EVER EVER touches a fan. THIS is why Smart is in trouble and got suspended.

Just watched it again and the biggest thing I just keep getting out of it is how big of a loser you have to be to be a 50+ year old grown man calling names to a basketball player during a game. I get that Smart needs to be held to certain standard but I also expect much more from an adult who has kids the age of Smart who he called a piece of crap publically. Just blows my mind that people are cool with saying whatever the hell they want at a sporting event because they paid a ticket and classify it as part of the experience.
