I get it, and I weighed it out knowing I was really mad. But here's the thing, WHY was I so mad? It wasn't just 'cause it was Sparty...
I agree with W.LA: Look at the intent. This is mob mentality. This is NOT the first time for them (not just Sparty, but this SAME GROUP of young men).
A spontaneous bar fight is one thing. Could someone end up dead? Sure. At least it's a momentary lapse of judgement, and based on raw emotion.
Holding onto anger, to the point of not being able to let go of it after walking away (long and far enough to round up a posse), and then planning a crime is a whole different story. It suggests a total lack of self-discipline, respect for law or humanity, and the total loss of fear for consequence.
Nothing (visible anyway) done by MSU would suggest that the school or football program has taken a strong stand to let these guys know that this is not acceptable.
