    I think its a push.
    Fan was an azz, BEGGING to get beat. I imagine once his wife is off the pain meds, she'll be giving him some whatfor.
    The pitcher should get stuck with med bills, season tix and suspension.

    It doesn't matter, since there are caps in CA , and the judge has discretion to reduce or increase amounts as long as they do not exceed the set cap.

    And the cap for pain and suffering is a lot higher than the cap for things like negligence, medical malpractice, etc...


    The one w/o a cap is wrongful death.
    Well caps are there cause people are asses - but what can ya do - I personally think they are gonna settle and none of this will go to court

    Only problem I forsee is if this ends up being a civil jury trial - I have NO faith in jurors anymore - they will screw MLB, the Rangers and the pitcher, given the opportunity

    I am not saying the player had a right to do it. He didn't.

    I am saying that if this guy sues MLB and the whole Rangers organization, instead of JUST Francisco, then I hope the case gets thrown out. I cannot see what he can claim? Negligence? No, this has never happened before, so its not a known condition or cause and effect thing that could have been corrected. And it was in Oakland, so it would be their responsibility if it was neglect. Pain & suffering, yes. But 1 person brought that, not the whole team. Certainly not MLB.


    I alos hopes that if he asks for a ridiculous amount, the judge says "um...no, you have some responsibility to your wife here too, buddy. You should have stopped when you were told to."
    Everyone has a duty to mitigate their damages - even if they dont, when it comes time for the $$$, what should have been mitigated is factored in -

    i wonder how much of this fan abuse is alcohol related.not ever being to a sporting event in the states, i can't relate or compare on what the procedures are for drinking. in england the bar shuts 15 mins before k.off, is re-opened at half time for a further 15 mins, then is closed for the day.

    bearing in mind,english football(soccer), consists of 2 45 min halves. the whole event being half the time american football lasts.

    is the bar open permanently throughout the game in the mile high.the course of the game will last on average, 3 hours( at a guess going on tv experience), plenty of time really for getting drunk, or getting halfway there, do a lot off people get ejected from games for drunken behaviour??

    if so take the source of the problem away(alcohol) and you cut down on the few idiots who ruin peoples days.

    english football games,became a no-go zone a few years back,the bar being open all day,pay at the entrance to get in, standing areas,where fans were packed in like cattle made for a very hostile atmosphere. for instance a game of intense rivalry i.e broncos v raiders would be bought forward to a morning k.off, to cut down on the number of drunks, an to make the atmosphere a lot less hostile.

    on the whole sport in the states has been more civilised,and more of an event than in england. but if you can get alcohol in the stadium, in the long run it will lead to problems...

    Interesting subject.... but I have a totally different question...... if some of you would be so kind as to fill me in on which side of the stadium faces the sun. I have been a die hard bronco fan all my life and I'm finally going to get to be in denver to watch a game but I don't want to buy a seat where I'll be looking into the sun. Yeah, what a wuss, I know.... but if you could help me out with some info, I'd really appreciate that. In relation to the 'open' end of the horseshoe, where would you recommend I look for available seats?

    thanks, again.....

    oh, and as far as the question of what 'rights' do fans have.... well, I think that just because you buy a ticket to a sporting event, that doesn't give you the 'right' to turn into an a-hole. It's not only annoying to the players, but it's even more annoying to other fans who may not want to listen to that sort of crap.

    Your the opponent so when you come into someone's Stadium or Arena it's you and your team against the other team and their Fans. You should expect that the Fans are gonna try to get rowdy and make you feel unwelcome as best as possible. Players shouldn't take anything Fans say to heart. Players should have more control over themselves because Fans are always trying to find ways to lose your cool to get you to play bad or get you kicked out of a game and suspended.

    Like its been said before, heckling has been going on for millenia. I'm sure the Spartans were talking mad trash to the Athenians at the original Olympics. Its all a part of the game, and must be delt with. Thats what makes the whole part about being on the road so difficult; different environment, different cilmate, different fans. The egos must be kept in check; you can't be royalty everywhere you go.
    Like Kirk said after the big Klingon brawl, "Who threw the first punch?" Ultimately, this is America, where freedom of speech exists. If the fan didnt touch the athlete, then they're clear in my opinion. There are no rules for what you can and can't say (well except for "Fire" in a theatre etc) and no such code of conduct at a game. But, like that CoC thread here on the board (just read it since I'm new) the fans will conduct themselves as a reflection of their beloved team. Come on, its the Fader Nation out there, with the fans reflecting the team; we've all seen it. If the A's want to be reflected as having fans with a worse mouth than John Rocker talking about NY, then so be it. Other fans can show that they have class and pride in their teams.
    I'm not saying the lady is an angel, I think its pathetic how she's pulling the sob "OMG I was so scared" story when a min before she was swearing enough to make marines cry. I think its funny what happened but ultimately, the player was wrong in my book. Role model debates aside, who threw the first punch?

    Rock on Broncos, and dang let this noob say some of your sig's are awesome; I'm blown away.
