Cleveland Brown Fans
 
The only thing worse was Lerner and Policy defending the work of the drunken mob that attends their games.

should be ashamed of themselves.

beer should not be sold at sporting events-no one loves to watch the game with a beer more than me(well i'm sure lotsa people do, but i like it a lot) but some people, mostly men in this case, cannot handle themselves.

I agree that they should be ashamed of themselves. I also agree that it was outrageous for the owners and coach to be defending their fans. I really hope the NFL talks to them about that.

I don't agree about the alcohol comment. Not that alcohol doesn't have the ability to make normal people do really stupid things, but I think to blame it on the beer in this case is too simplistic.

The behavior is partly a group think mentality, but I also believe that it is symptomatic of an underlying sense of frustration and anger and confusion that plague men in our society. Men are given very confusing messages about who they are supposed to be, how they are supposed to deal with their emotions. The fact is, well adjusted people do not behave the way those fans behaved. They just don't...

Yep, makes me proud to be a Clevelander. I bet my mom was at that game--I should give her a call...

The fans in New Orleans displayed the same class last night.

you are right. though i obviously don't know any specifics i would venture to say that these men do not exhibit these traits elsewhere in public-they aren't at their jobs throwing beer bottles at people.
i would also imagine that they were consuming some portion of alchohol as the dawg pound is famous for.
put those two factors-alchohol and men distressed about not only their crappy football team but their lives-and you have a recipe for disaster.
i've been to hockey games in ottawa when the leafs are in town. the leafs are my favourite team and the two cities have developed quite a rivalry so it's always quite fun and we are always vocal in our support of the visiting team-and some guys, even those with their own kids beside them, become enraged-it really is scary.

What's even more scary is that these drunken idiots at the games have to drive back home drunk.
