The Play That Got Randy Moss Kicked Off The Vikings

I know he was tripped up, but he could have still caught that ball. I was not on the field, I’m only looking at how close the ball was when it landed. If Randy continues to run and not jog he catches the ball. Just my opinion, but I think a lot of people agree with me.

Listen to the announcers. Some people will say that they acted unprofessional, but every fan wants their home-team announcers to show this kind of support for their team. Don’t you?

Canucks’ Rypien attacks Wild fan

Vancouver Canucks center Rick Rypien went after a Minnesota Wild fan Tuesday night in Minneapolis. Shortly after the Rypien grabs the fan you will see security come and remove the fan and his friend. I don’t know if they were removed from the game but nothing should have happened to them. If fact they should have been compensated for being attacked by the visiting team.

Watch the video closely. You will see that the fan is doing nothing but clapping and then Rypien goes after him. I say the fan should get seasons tickets, but seeing where the seats are, he may already have seasons tickets. At least give the man a hot dog or something.

Given that we live in a world of crazy law suits, I would not be surprised to find out that the fan is charging Rypien for assault.

What would you do if you were the fan?
