Its not right or tasteful to cheer an injury, but understand their perspective.
At the end of the day, freedom and lives are not at stake in sports. I understand the importance though but it doesn't make it right to be disgusting human beings even in instances of actual war. Is rape, torture, killing innocent civilians etc. right in war as well?
I understand you're upset, you have a right to be.
But the Toronto crowd redeemed themselves after the initial reaction, everything was in the heat of the moment.
Where do you think arena based entertainment originated from?
Heat of the moment, I understand. Fans waving goodbye to a man laying on the ground who suffered a severe injury is not in the heat of the moment and not understandable. Fans chanting in excitement f**** KD when it is clear the man was injured is not okay. That fan who wrote that disgusting snapchat caption is a scumbag.
The classy fans I respect. Like I said in previous posts, I do not like to generalize. There were disgusting actions from people that day, and respectful actions as well from the same fanbase.
Imagine your son or daughter breaking their leg in a sports game and having opposing parents cheering and laughing at your child.
I don't care that sports evolved from arena based entertainment..Why do you think we dont fight to the death anymore for people's enjoyment?
