I'm far from a prude or a geek or whatever you want to call it, but the atmosphere was so hostile and unenjoyable — even though my team won, heh heh, shutting up the thousands of idiot fans — I will probably never go to another NFL game.
And no, I wasn't wearing my team's jersey or even cheering for them, I didn't want to deal with the bulls--t, so I wasn't part of the problem.
I was just amazed at the lack of basic adult behavior.

I also doubt that the fans of every major league team would have acted like spoiled 2 year olds over a terrible call. In fact, I didn't see any trash being thrown on the field after the Seattle/Green Bay game with the replacement refs? Honestly, I feel worst for Chipper. To have such a long and storied career playing for only one team... and then to have the fans of that team embarrass themselves and their team so badly in his last game, it's unfortunate.
