Default Fan Behavior

I know that this story is not directly about the Gamecocks, but it does cover an issue that relates to our team, and our fans...verbally abusing our players.

http://www.oregonlive.com/sports/ore..._player_t.html

The headline reads:
Ex-Ducks player to Oregon fans 'Go (bleep) yourselves'

Excerpt:

"I Love The Ducks. I Hate Duck Fans."
Directly behind me were a couple of drunk (expletive) who criticized Marcus' ability to throw the football, DeAnthony's ability to run the football, the lineman's ability block, and the coach's ability to analyze film and call plays. After hearing so much ignorant (expletive), I turned around to tell the "fans" to chill the (expletive) out.

Unfortunately, This article reminds me of a lot of things that I have seen & heard in the stands from our fans over the years.



I hope, that if you hear our fans abusing our players that you will have the guts to address that "fan" and let him/her know that it is not OK to treat our players with the kind of venom found in this article.

Unfortunately, this is just a part of attending football games... or even watching them at a bar or a party with others. There's a ton of ignorant fans who just want to criticize and bitch about everything. It's not going to stop, so there's no point in having the "guts" to call out a stranger in a large group of people. Been there, done that. As much as I hate blue collar comedy tour, I have to agree that "you can't fix stupid". This is one of the main reasons that I no longer buy season tickets or go watch games with people I don't know.

Default Re: Fan Behavior

You hear this stuff every game. "That guy" is in every section. These jerkoffs seem to believe that every pass thrown should be completed, and that each completion should be a minimum of 20 yards. They think that a 3 or 4 yard run is garbage, and complain after running plays are called. Apparently, every run should be broken for a touchdown, or else our OL sucks and our RB has poor skills. If Clowney doesn't have a sack on every play, he's winded and not trying.

Default Re: Fan Behavior

It only bothers me, when people yell it like idiots as if they are talking to everyone in their section of the stadium. However, several times I have people butting into my conversations with my friends at games, because they heard and took offense at what my friends and I were saying to one another and were very sensitive about it. 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.

Default Re: Fan Behavior

My favorite has to be the guy that yells, "stop throwing the ball, we need to run it more." Then when a run is called and only get 2 or 3 yards, starts yelling, "throw the ball, running the ball is never going to work."

Read Rooster, this is what I have been telling you about how offensive your behavior is to others. You have said you don't give a sh*t about what others think. I have said you need to be considerate, but you will not.

After reading what that former player felt when fans such as yourself vented in the stands, I would hope you would reconsider your obnoxious behavior.

Your always going to have those DA's in the stands. Typically what you find out is " those people " have no clue about the game and have never played a sport in their life unless it was on the Rec level if that.

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.

I'm not talking about swearing or saying something racist or making some wildly inappropriate comment, but if I am don't like how some one is playing its my right to express my opinion on it. And no I don't expect every throw or run to be for big yards or a TD, but there ARE expectations.

So a football player was shocked that football fans complain and curse in the stadium?

And the solution was to curse at those fans and write an angry letter?

This is fake.

I care what people think to a degree, but I'm not obligated to be some kind of sunshine pumping cheerleader. That is not why I watch or attend games. I disagree with heckling, but if anyone has a problem with whatever comments I have to say even if it is part of a conversation with someone else, that is a YOU problem. If you are someone that can't leave well enough alone because of an obsession with the views of others falling in line with your own, than you might not be one to be preaching one what is considerate and what is not. Because in my book that is not being considerate at all. You know what else is not considerate? Not getting your kids to sit down and run around all over the place. Making me get up and down every five minutes because you keep walking around. There is lot of annoying things people do at games that one could whine about this is bothersome, but I let is slide, because that is just part of going to a game. Welcome to the world. It's not here to accommodate you or give you warm fuzzy feelings. It's filled with different people who think and act different and requires a little something called "tolerance" to survive. Good luck working on that.

Just as a parent has an obligation to make his kids behave, so to does a person have an obligation to be considerate of others around him. This is just a basic issue of courtesy. If you know the demeaning comments are offending the others around you, then I maintain you are acting as a boor and you should modify your behavior out of consideration for others.

Just because our society has a bunch of *ssholes, does not give you leave to be one yourself.

Nobody is saying you cannot do what you're doing. We are saying you should be considerate. If you wish to continue being inconsiderate, then that is on you and you are the *ss.

And by the way, I agree that nobody should let an obnoxious boor near them bother them and detract from the game experience. However, it is sometimes hard to avoid the negative feelings toward the *sses around us.

Objection noted, but denied. It OFFENDS me that you expect me to modify MY behavior because YOU might be offended. Why don't you modify YOUR behavior by not being offended so easily? We are also not together one who is being an *sshole, here. Not saying you HAVE to be more tolerant but you should be to allow people to express their actual true opinions of the games with the people they came with. Never to memory have I ever gotten into it with another Gamecock fan. But I do have a couple of buddies that like to talk a lot of smack to opposing fans. It happens every time. They seem to absolutely love it. Some people just find this the most entertaining part of the experience, especially if they can find someone on the other side will to return said smack. I don't usually actively participate but do egg them on a bit, as I find it kind pretty amusing. Still I am more focused on the game.
