Win Idiocracy: New Contest

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.

Email us with hot tips about misbehavior by Rutgers fans. A copy of Idiocracy will go to the informant with the sorriest tale of Rutgers fan hooliganism. See some of Idiocracy, see more here.

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.

    Here’s my typical example of Rutgers “fans being fans.” I take the bus after every home game from the Stadium to the RAC parking lot. Because this is the parking lot of last resort, it’s also where all the fans of the visiting team end up parking, and the busses usually hold a good mix of those wearing scarlet with those wearing the other team’s colors (back in the days when the Knights were less successful on the field, it was typical for Rutgers fans to be outnumbered on some of these busses).
    Invariably, after wins and losses, any conversations that I’ve seen or had with fans of opposing teams on this bus have been good-natured and friendly — yes, even with fans of the West Virginia Mountaineers. There are sometimes things yelled from the stands during the heat of the game that one might find off-color, but this isn’t Oklahoma or Glasgow or Yankee Stadium; there’s no need for our visitors to feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
