Police Chief Asks 49ers Fans Not to Beat, Kill Each Other at Sunday's Game

Sports fans are as bad as barbarian hordes
Football is a sport notorious for causing life-long injuries  -- and we're not only talking about the players. Fans can be just as brutal, as evidenced by the barbaric behavior we saw during the 49ers and Raiders pregame showdown at Candlestick Park earlier this year.

So we think it's fair to say that Police Chief Greg Suhr would be negligent if he didn't advise fans to keep their cool when the New York Giants come to town this weekend for the NFC Championship Game.

That means no punching, biting, slapping, kicking -- and c'mon, don't shoot each other.

"The only upset that I'd like to bring a Giants fan is to send them home with at least one point less on the scoreboard than the 49ers," Suhr told reporters.

Police will be stationed at Candlestick Park for Sunday's game, but in case you see something they don't, Suhr said people can report unruly fans by calling 656-4949 or texting 69050 with the keyword BADFAN, and will be kept confidential.

"For what these tickets cost, it would serve everybody to enjoy what's going on and be respectful of everyone else, lest you don't get to see the end of the game," he said.

And that would be the real tragedy.

I notice in sports.where the spectators actually play the sport ,the fans are more civilized, example, Golf, and tennis.


Societal 'rot'... Nihilist Wez say "You can run but you can't hide!"


Sometimes a stern warning in advance helps, ask any parent.   At least we can hope that no one loses their life over a game.
