Listen, everyone is horrified by this incident. As an MSU grad, I'm not proud that the goons who committed the act were in Green & White. I truly hope that Mr. Kampfer fully recovers and that Conboy and Tropp lose their right to represent our school.
I understand the "fuck you State" chants, and I think it's to be expected that people will direct their anger at the school as a whole, and not just the two idiots who do not represent what we're about. Rivalries tend to bring out strong emotions, and an ugly incident like this is bound to bring out a lot of anger. With that said, making wild, offensive generalizations about the students of a University isn't really a great way to get your point that a classless act is an extension of the University and its students. To say things like "Every cheap HPV carrier slut I knew in school went to state" are offensive and have no place in a rivalry, much like the cheap shot that has horrified everyone here.
I don't mean to take away from the primary issue at hand, and I am definitely not defending the actions of Conboy and Tropp; but I think that asinine, hateful generalizations are bad for all of us both as sports fans and as adults. So I offer a respectful fuck you to Argus99, and hope for a speedy recovery for Mr. Kampfer
