Fucking can't believe all the violence and killing over professional sports games. A huge problem is all the gangs that identify with their home teams in NorCal it's the "Nortenos" that identify with the 49ers, in LA it's "Surenos" with the Dodgers. Now not only are you seen as a fan of an opposing team, but a potential rival gang member. It's so fucking pointless and retarded it boggles the mind, these people really need something positive in their lives.

This is really insane and mind boggling. Who the hell cares if a person roots for a "rival" team? Newsflash, the teams don't give a fuck about you or the opposing fans.

If it's becoming that dangerous where people are getting beat up and killed, it would be nice if both the teams could do a joint presser or something and request the fans to calm the fuck down.

People really are dumb and I think if you are going to a game to root for the away team, it's better not to wear their jerseys.

Apparently it's not all the uncommon, this was off SF turf, but I bet the perpetrator was a gang banger piece of shit.











SF always get's mocked by people from other states, people think it's all flaming homos and feminine hipsters, but shit can be pretty sketchy there at times.

Seems like you can root for a losing sports team and don't invest yourself emotionally in the franchise.

It's fun to root for a losing team and be outcome independent, and it seems like the biggest problem is the people who have nothing better going on in their lives.

Fireman Ed seemed like a pretty cool guy, just enjoying going to the Jets game and meeting people and making them happy, then the loser Jets fans harassed him enough he decided to retire.
