Rotten, Spoiled Fans (9/25/07)

Papa John's Cardinal Stadium was the site of an embarrassing, disastrous performance this past Saturday.

But I'm not talking about the Louisville Cardinal football team. I'm talking about the thousands of their alleged "fans" who made an already disappointing day many times more miserable with their classless and immature booing and obscene remarks directed at the U of L players and coaches.

Of course, the immediate knee-jerk response of these childish boors to any suggestion that their behavior was over the line is, "I have the right to boo my team. I want to send a message."

Well, you have the right to do a lot of stupid things. But that that doesn't mean you should. And the "message" you're sending is that you're a spoiled moron who throws tantrums when you don't get your way.

If your self-esteem depends upon the success of a bunch of college football players, you have problems that are far worse than poor pass coverage.

There's a reason playing on your home field is supposed to provide an advantage. It's because the fans have a job to do just like the players. And when they do it, it can make all the difference.

But all the boo birds? As badly as they think the Cards did their jobs Saturday, they did theirs a hundred times worse.

What's your thought? Call us at 588-2433 and let us know.

I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my Point of View.
