Shining example of humanity rips seat out of U.S. Bank Stadium

You’re wrong for pointing it out, though

NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, we’ve had any number of assurances that criminal conduct is completely acceptable, and even encouraged, as long as you have the proper beliefs.

Apparently, for some people, that means that it isn’t just enough to win the Super Bowl, but it apparently covers your urge to vandalize someone else’s stadium.

Behold this from Barstool Sports.

At the risk of being called “soft” or “weak” or whatever insult du jour the East Coast sports bros want to fire off, I would like to take a moment to point out that normal sports fans don’t do this sort of crap.

Seriously, who does this idiot think he is?

Honestly, the best case scenario is that someone, whether it’s U.S. Bank Stadium or the National Football League or whoever, figures out exactly who this is and prosecutes them to the fullest extent of the law. I’m going to go way out on a limb, though, and guess that nothing will happen. After all, we’ve been excusing criminal behavior for the past two weeks. Why should we change anything now?

I would like to thank this person, however, for highlighting the fact that the proclivities for violence and stupidity that we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks had absolutely nothing to do with the results of the NFC Championship Game or the reaction of Minnesota Vikings fans to that particular game. It’s just people that have had their behavior excused for so long that they simply don’t know any other way.
