They intentionally make sure the cameras don't show people who run onto a field/playing surface. Probably to try and reduce the number of people who think they can do the same thing and get 20 seconds of fame.

So did the Knicks, from what I have been hearing they didn't show the fan on purpose.

Ye they normally do that in baseball as well so that the fan doesn't get any attention for it.

Yes guys, both TV crews for each team just happened to be sleeping while the fan ran onto the court and forgot to change camera views. Whoops.

For ACC a standard penalty would be ejection from stadium, Police would charge him and typically will get a one year ban from ACC.

I'm more concerned about those tweets that sound like they could have been setting up a terrorist attack. Though I'm sure if it was a brown guy he'd be monitored.

I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often in basketball. You go to 2 Football games and your bound to see atleast one guy run onto the field.

As previously explained multiple times, it doesn't happen often [anymore] because the TV networks stopped showing them. In the most recent ones you see as soon as the fan gets onto the field/rink/court the camera immediately switches to a view where you can't see the person. They realized that the more attention they give them, the more reason people have to do it. Who really wants to go to jail if you're only seen for a few seconds by the crowd, rather than a being replayed on sportscentre for a day or two and making the morning news?

However I can understand if one thinks it's just the guys in the truck asleep at the wheel again, as they do seem to completely miss technical fouls and scuffles, and botch breakaway dunks by switching views at the last second.

pretty sure for "streaking" or interrupting a game you get banned from NBA games for life.

If charged for doing this, I would argue I was desperately looking for a rest room and got lost due to insufficient directions, counter-sue for emotional duress.
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Nah one time when I was younger. I took my girlfriend to the Raptors game against Pistons and we both made out and I was feeling her up and ****. The security guard was like to me, your disturbing others. I was in high school at the time so I am like, tell them to look the other way or at the game. Either way me and my girl was told to stop making out to explicitly or we would have to leave. So I just felt her felt as we watched the game. Security can't do much unless you run on the court. There rent-a-cops.

I think they did this on purpose. They don't want to make running on the court a fast way to find fame. but i agree, pretty annoying.
