I'll never forget the game last year against Ohio. I had two guys behind me screaming "hurt him!", every single time Denard touched the ball. Sparty and Ohio are in the same trash can as far as I"m concerned.

I find that hard to believe unless you were sitting in the Ohio section...and even then I kind of doubt it.  Personally, I have never seen Ohio fans do anything like that (except maybe in the 90's).  Sparty fans are a different story...like the weather in Hawaii, if you haven't seen them do something classless, wait 10 minutes.

how pissed would you be if you were a michigan state player that you have so many horrible fans like these people. I think they enjoy making their teams and university look bad. it's in their blood or something.

AND good fans.  I was married to a Sparty a few years back.  I finally wised up and booted her, but her parents were totally awesome people.  Hard working, honest, decent human beings who supported MSU, but also devoted much time and money to other worthy causes.  Exactly the kind of people you'd want as neighbors, assuming you could tolerate the silly green flag. 

I hate Sparty, but not all their fans are douches.  My ex in laws are great people.

I'm going to paraphrase a George Carlin quote: "I hate groups of people, but I love individuals." When someone is acting with a group of people, they aren't necessarily the same as they would be individually. I grew up in the Lansing area and most of the MSU fans that I know are great people. I also traveled to the game at MSU last year and I couldn't be more disappointed with how their fans acted as a whole. And sure, maybe you remember the terrible fans more than you remember the nice ones, but a good proportion of the fans that I saw were assholes to me that day. That having been said, we have some assholes too. I've seen it in our stadium, but I've also seen someone get yelled at by their entire section for shitty behavior before. It was awesome, and I'm glad that a bunch of people realized he was being a douche and made it a point to let him know.

Holy crap, their fanbase is true garbage. Every post is filled with petty, jealous vitriol, wishing injury on a classy guy because he plays for a rival. Wow. Brother issues, Sparty?

One of the many things that separate us from Sparty. I'm all for hatred of a rival school, otherwise what is college football for? But still, wishing injury on an opposing football player? East Lansing keeping it classy as always.

The fact that entire fanbase is so threatened by a single 20-something year old kid is disturbingly pathetic. I've read message board posts from 50 year old men, calling Denard names and wishing ill-will on him.

I hope DR has his biggest game ever tomorrow.

I will be the first to say that football is more than a sport. However, there is a line that shouldn't be crossed and state is doing that (at least those participating in that thread). The comments hoping that a hit will end Denards career are sickening, I don't want to just win tomorrow I want to embarrass state tomorrow.

Go blue! Fuck state.

Well the play of Michigan State exemplifies it, too. They seem to revel in dirty hits, trash talking, unsportsmanlike conduct, and an overall lack of discipline. The example of bad sportsmanship and deliberate disrespect comes from the coach, through the players, and out to the fanbase. Not surprised fans openly celebrate intent to injure as well. It's just another baby step from where they are. They want a Spartan to end Denards college career "on a clean hit, of course." Why stop there? They've already debased themselves. They're already trash. It's funny to watch them try and dress it up as somehow acceptable.

Remember last year when one of the safeties from MSU came out and said they were going to try to hurt Russell Wilson, then on the first play of the game, Montee Ball put his shoulder down and injured said MSU safety trying to make the play? That team is trash. The fanbase is trash. I hope we fucking dominate them.


October 19th, 2012 at 9:30 PM ^

He's a human being, wtf is wrong with them. How can anyone wish or even try to predict anothernpersons injury. At the end of the day it's just a game, they think it should literally be life or death. This is absolutely sickening, they are a disgrace to humanity.

When your rivals want to get some kind of screen shot of your team's blog message-board, because they think that moderators and any supervising adults will be horribly embarassed, you gotta figure something's going wrong.

I do hope that the whole thing can be preserved for posterity.  Somebody copy it before they lock it and delete it.
