Fan Lunacy Is Already Here

May 6, 2008

Blog readers pointed us to powerful, troubling evidence of Rutgers fan misbehavior.

* Watch Maryland fans (in black) pelted by laughing Rutgers fans. Yellow jackets are security. The red shirt wearers are guess who.

Pretty funny. At least the Rutgers fans think so. No word from the Maryland fans, however.

Just think…if they get more seats, they can get more violent! More classless! More stupid!

Keep those links coming! Potential stadium donors will want to see exactly what their money will buy.

Win Idiocracy: New Contest

May 5, 2008

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.
