Raucous, irrational fans are notorious for the worst kind of anti-social violence. So we have to ask: When will Rutgers fans seek to castrate UConn fans? Is that where we are heading? Don’t snort. Exactly that scenario played out in Oklahoma when a 53-year-old Oklahoma fan (who happens to be a deacon in his church) apparently attempted to castrate a Texas fan. The victim’s only “sin” — wearing a Texas t-shirt. This incredible story is here, and here. Yes, this story is not breaking news; we offer it up as a harbinger of what could come to Piscataway as booster culture takes hold and sports cretins proliferate.
Don’t think the triumph of mindless fandom depicted in the film cannot happen here. Gresham’s Law bodes poorly for Rutgers tomorrow, unless we join together today to put an abrupt stop to the spread of booster culture.
Tell us what you’ve seen and we’ll highlight the most egregious incidents of rampant vulgarity, i.e., fans being fans.
