So, an Auburn student was banned today

This seems a gross over-reaction. It's to the point a fan can't ridicule to 'get under an opponent's skin' anymore without offending someone...somewhere...somehow.

That super-sports and (presumed) entertainment network can give the details...I'm not plugging hyperbole. In closing, suffice to say, I miss the 'your momma wears army boots!' days! Sheesh!

From what I've heard ole Fike would be empty given today's sensibilities. I heard what was said to Auburn was so bad a Georgia qb may get to transfer. :)

Just actually saw what he said. Candy a's at Auburn. What if he said go back to Knoxville? The terrorists have won.

That was a lame comment by him though. I don't feel sorry for him.

So, 'lame' is the qualifier?

I'm all for being correct and respectful...I'm also all for fans having fun...kids being kids...and people having skin thicker than tracing paper. Clearly, you and I would never agree, though. So...

Yeah...I am for it too, but there is line that shouldn't be crossed. I think the ejection was good. Banning may be too extreme though. Ejection is fine though.
Anyway, yelling at an exchange student on the opposing team and telling him to go back to his own country and this is America is just lame.

years?

They always read the statement "No sexist, racist, derogatory comments or intimidating actions directed at student athletes, coaches or officials shall be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the premises"

Easy rule. Just don't break it and whine about people being sensitive afterwards

That was before the Hate Crime Amendment to the Constitution. Try to keep up.

You have the right to say it, but you can also be banned from the arena. Freedom of Speech doesnt protect you from any consequence.

You can get fired from your job for saying anything you want too. Freedom of Speech protects one from the government.

You can say whatever you want to. But the powers that operate the sporting event always hold to right to remove you from the venue.


Yes...I have...

What's derogatory about needling...or is that out of line, now? We all grew up saying similar, all knowing it was meant as nothing more than ribbing the opponent. Nothing serious meant whatsoever. But, in this day and age of thinking Facebook and Instagram constitutes social interaction, clearly, I'm the dinosaur in the 'forum'...and it's time I bow out...

Go save the world...

the term ###### started out as homophobic, because it's so fun to call your friend that for being stupid.

like at a Clemson volleyball game I went to ages ago a Clemson student yelled at a player from New Zealand. "You dirty Kiwi!". Now it was clearly meant as a joke but you can't judge intent.

Easy rule? Sounds like offensive holding in football. Nearly everybody in the place could be ejected. Some things could be cut and dry, but nearly anything could be viewed as a violation.

Obviously not. Good point.

I'm just tired of people being offended for other people.

and what's worse is people who are offended 100 times more than the victim. It's getting to the point where children will end up suing their parents when they find out they changed their diaper in public when they were 3 months old.

He said, “This is the USA”. That’s offensive to many snowflakes and Bernie Bros.

If he was from Uruguay, he was probably the least offended in the building. South Americans seem to be rarely bothered by things Americans think are rude. My wife is commonly called "negra". It literally means black girl in reference to her being dark skinned for the area. Our daughter is often called "gordita" or little fat girl. I would recommend for the next person to find a different group to intimidate, because I would be surprised if it bothered that player in the least.

Kids lucky. If he'd been in one of the tolerant states like Cal. Or Oregon or N.Y. he'd have been treated to a public flogging outside the arena and "felt the Bern"

The Exchange student would have been given permission to invite as many "family" members as he wanted to come along next time.

If no family members wanted to come, he'd be compelled to find someone, even if they were no relation.

Good thing he wasn't wearing a MAGA red hat, or he probably would get banned from campus.

I’m sorry - compare this light heckling to an entire fan base singing their version of the neck song loud enough to be heard on TV. Any of them get thrown out? No. So spare me the outrage until you clean that trash up.
