His he insuating that the dude was asking for trouble because he wore his Giants jersey to the game at Dodger Stadium?  Who cares how old the guy is, he almost lost his life, and who knows what kind of permanent damage has been done to him, all because he wore the enemies jersey.

What a tool that writer is.

Best (worst?) part about the article is that it originally had numerous erors that have since been corrected. He had Mr. Stow's last name wrong ("Snow") and listed him as being from Sacramento when he's actually from Santa Cruz. Oh, and to top it off, "outgrown" in the headline was "outgrow". 

Also, same writer has some interesting comments regarding homophobia and "effeminate men" just above the picture of Mr. Rogers. Dude seems pretty worthless.

Guy wore a Giants jersey to a Dodger game, therefore he was asking to get nearly beaten to death.

It's people like this that make me weep for the state of humanity.

Eh, I didn't read this article as "he was wearing the enemy's colors so he got what was coming to him."  It was more a harangue on people older than college-age wearing jerseys to games.  Which, fuck off just the same.

aren't just for kids. Sports are for EVERYBODY from the time you can start understanding sports all the way until you die. Sports are an escape from reality. Sports are something that can bring you back to your childhood every once and again. And damnit, we might not be part of the team, but without us, THERE IS NO TEAM.

What an effing scumbag writer. Firstly, he can't write, secondly, he's blaming the victim, and thirdly, he's a douche. There's no accountability, so this guy's pageview-whore act will most likely go unpunished. I can't even put into words how wrong this man is.

Some paragraphs:


They were protecting Dodger turf.


It doesn't.

Do you find that unbelievable?

I don't.

It doesn't surprise me a bit.

My HS had a "ComTech" class that was in charge of putting on the daily announcements on closed-circuit TV in a "Six O'Clock News"-style format.  It made things more interesting and the kids had a great time doing it.  I say if you can make your niche in the field, it's a storied, honorable profession with a bit of an idiot problem.  (To be fair, the same could be said of most fields of study.)

I've seen a lot of bad sports articles, but I think this is the first one that I've ever seen where there isn't at least one person who comments to agree with him.  There are probably around 500 comments, and I don't think there's a single one sympathetic to the "author".

...it is known that Dodger stadium has become a place where many gang members go. Many people now avoid going to Dodger games because the family atmosphere that once existed has turned to a gang atmosphere.

I almost couldn't believe when he started blaming the guy who got mugged because he was wearing a jersey. This is probably one of the worst sports articles I've ever read.

The most ironic thing about this article are their TOS rules:

According to their own TOS, shouldn't his article be deleted?

Sometimes I think people write stuff just to see how many hits they can generate.  Writers like this guy, whom nobody has ever heard of, seem to write the most outlandish stuff imaginable with the sole motivation of driving up hits.  Also (ime), checking for spelling errors and accuracy are no longer the editors job.  No, their job is to find which sentence or paragraph needs shock value.

And then he wrote this piece of drivel.  

The only thing we know for sure is that his podunk news paper (I live less than an hour drive from Washington PA and have never heard of this paper) has never and will never get more page hits on their website than this stupid article has delivered.
