They’d better pace themselves


Recommended Posts



Rumor is that the Blue Jays will be playing their games in Buffalo this summer, this time in front of fans. I wouldn’t mind going to a game or two.

At least they're socially distanced and masked.

I can't wait to see how high the positive cases and death rates go.

While I like watching sports, I often find it odd I am watching other grown men play a game.  I am certainly not risking my health over it.

Why does this happen?

I didn’t see the clips first time I opened it. Thought it was about baseball. Who doesn’t love a good brawl?

Even though we’re all vaccinated now I’m still not going to an Angel game this year.  I’m good giving covid another year or two to settle down more before going to any stadiums.  

Our rates are really low in OC but we’re still not eating in restaurants nor going to any busy public places like malls yet.

How do we mark this as 'solution'?

Only mods and the author can.

Well then, someone mark this as solved.

Most of us learned in high school chemistry that alcohol is a solution.

I wasn’t aware that alcohol consumption was a huge issue for fans at MLB games. NFL, yes, where there is a huge tailgating agenda for some to get as intoxicated as possible for game time. But baseball? On a mass scale?

I’ve seen reports of fights at California baseball games, but had attributed it more to local team rivals (with near gang-like loyalty), and attributed it mostly to Dodgers/Giants games. But this game was a cross country team (maybe Cincinnati?) making me wonder is this a Dodger Stadium issue? A Californian baseball thing? Or happening at MLB games regularly, everywhere?

I hope this isn’t the real reason @ChrisL got concussion #4!

So true.  I'd much rather be playing the game than watching the game, and I definitely ain't going out of my way to pack myself into a crowd to watch any game.

Chis has mentioned sporting events and the ensuing azzhatery of the fans out here.  Not sure if it is certain teams or leagues, or across all cities and sports.

Dodger fans are some of the worse in all of sports.  If they aren’t attacking fans of rival teams they are constantly running their mouths talking shit. And it may sound like I’m over generalizing but you just have to see it to believe it. With maybe a few exceptions Dodger fans are ass holes.

No, it’s not a CA thing it is only a Dodger thing.   I have been to more Angels games than I can remember and the only issue I ever had was with a Dodger fan. I have also been to Giants, A’s and Padre games and the fans are super cool.  I will never ever go to Dodger stadium ever again.

Is this a Yankee fan describing Red Sox fans or a Penquins fan describing Flyers fan sort of analysis?  Or is this really an "any rational person would see how insane Dodger fans are" sort of thing?

Maybe ask some Padre fans and see what they say.  It’s really just a Dodger thing...

I fully believe Eagles and Raiders games are dangerous to go to as a fan of the opposing team. But the wide spread fighting in the crowds seen above is nutty.

Is it gang related? Are there “professional” agitators who go for a good fight? Or just a fight-lovin’ group?

They attract a huge following of the East LA Hispanics so there is a gang association with them but it’s more than that.

They can’t just talk up their team, they will talk shit on your team in the process.  You are basically a loser if you follow any other team and they will tell you as much at every opportunity.  Defend your team and be ready to fight, either verbally or physically.

My cousin is married to a huge Dodger fan and he is a highly educated college professor.  At family gatherings he knows I’m an Angel fan like his wife and he always gave me shit about it.  I once called him out on regardless of the socioeconomic background of Dodger fan, they are a bunch of shit talking ass holes.  My cousin burst out in laughter.  He actually owned up to it and agreed. He also stopped bagging on my team to me.

Big mouth ass hole is a very consistent trait of Dodger fan.

It looks like the first video is Dodgers fans fighting one another. I can’t imagine too many Reds fans in LA for that game.
