Well, after watching the video, it is hard to see, it actually looks like she punches him first . The police have filed assault charges on both parties involved. Moral to the story, don't wear an opposing teams jersey to a Jets game (or Bears or Philly for that matter). Those fans are CRAZY!!!!

I have heard Philly can be kinda rough.
I went to a late season division game in Detriot in the early 90's they played the Packers. The guys I went with were GB's fans and they won that day. I was pretty nervous gettng out of there to say the least.

I took my 7 year old son to the Nassau Coliseum this year to see the Islanders/Rangers and Game 3 of the playoffs against the Pens. The Isles/Rangers games can be totally nuts, but I was pleasantly surprised to see people being well behaved, except for the obnoxious Ranger fans when the Rangers won in OT. My son looked at me on the way out and said, "Dad, those Rangers fans are bragging." I said, "yes...yes, they are, but they have to be Ranger fans the rest of their lives, and that is a terrible fate." :-) Game 3 was probably the craziest loudest sporting event I have attended. Again, the people were bonkers, but they were great. Isles lost again. My son may turn into a Ranger fan. I digress...

There is something about football games that get out of control. Perhaps it is just the sheer number of people. 85,000 knuckle scraping Jets fans in one spot is never going to end well, especially when you throw a few Massholes in for good measure. ;-)

I also find it hilarious how vested people are in their teams. Is your real life that horrible that you need such an outlet? Its best to stick to concerts; you really cant lose.

Tell your son to be a Ranger fan. Not only do we rule (even if the team does not) but MSG is a heck of a lot easier to get to than Brooklyn.

The mix of alcohol, lack of civility/class, in a competitive environment, is why I don't go to pro sporting events anymore.

Looks like this drunk Jets schlub and a woman are being pulled apart, the out of nowhere the blonde woman in the retro Pats jersey goes after the much bigger Jets fan.
What's she thinking about there?

FWIW, the Jets fan, a cop's son, who has a previous conviction as a minor for killing someone in a knife fight, the 2 women and one of their male companions have all been booked on assault and disorderly charges.

When I go to sporting events, I NEVER wear a team t shirt or jersey. If I have to wear a t shirt with a picture or logo on it, let it be one with the Allman Bros Band or something like that! Matter of fact, I've worn my ABB shirts to games, and quite often I get compliments, and get to exchange pleasantries with other fans!!! I suppose whereas wearing team colors brings out the worst in people, the ABB can bring out the best!!!

For Long Islanders the commute to Barclays is exactly the same as the commute to MSG. Only difference is having to change trains at Jamaica.

Now, their is a simple answer to why there is sooooo much more violence at football games and it is a one word answer..............ALCOHOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have never been to a Giants or Jets or any other NFL game the parking lots are 3/4 full 4 hours before game time and the alcohol is flowing from the time people get there. So basically most people are tanked before they even go into the stadium and then when they get in the alcohol continues to flow. By the time the game starts it's a wonder anyone knows what is going on during the game. This is why I stopped going to NFL games live years ago. I am even hesitant these days when offered free tickets. I would rather relax at home with my 50 inch HDTV than to travel 90 minutes each way and pay a boatload for gas and parking and then have to deal with the droves of drunken idiots. Hockey games can be bad as well and as an Islanders fan I stopped going to both Islanders/Rangers games and Islanders/Flyers games years ago. Just too much potential violence to be able to enjoy the games but even those games are tame compared to NFL games where the alcohol flows starting hours before the games start.

Get rid of the booze and the violence for the most part would disappear. Good luck with that though. The NFL and the teams themselves receive so much revenue from booze sales that they will never stop selling it. They could and should enforce a no drinking in the parking lots before games or wait until 2 hours before game time to open the parking lots but I guess keeping the drunken and rowdy fans happy is more important than stopping violent situations like the one this post is about and there are a lot more incidents just like that one that happen every weekend around the country but don't get caught on video.

So here's the NFL coming up with a New rule in what seems like every five minutes, all designed to "Protect the players"... perhaps they should come up with a rule intended to protect the fans...from each other....It's getting where people can't bring their children, wives or loved ones to a NFL game anymore.....much less wearing a jersey for the other team....

Maybe these events should be alcohol free?... Perhaps they should have weed vendors, it would mellow out the crowd and immensely improve food sales. Win/Win.

My brother was at the Eagles-Packers 4th and 26 playoff game in Philly. As a Packers fan, he knew to wear something ambiguous, so he wore a green shirt and his brooklyn hat, thinking it innocent enough. He got got pelted with "get the f*#k back to Brooklyn" several times during the game. Every brave soul with a Packers jersey was pelted with homophobic venom. Philly fans are insane. Although I've heard similar things from friends who have gone to Giants games. Every fan base has it's crazies who take it too seriously, but they should never have put Giants (and Jets) stadium in a swamp in Jersey - you can't help but get pissed off.

As a Packers fan, I may be a little biased, but nicest fans you can find. Even when the hated Bears come to town, Bears fans can usually join someone tailgating in the parking lot. A little ribbing here and there, no doubt, but come on people, it's sports. Plus, the Packers usually win, so what do we have to be upset about? Wanee and Lambeau Field, two of the happiest places on earth.

i attend lots of games in NYC. I have season tickets for the Jets and Rangers and attend about 2 or 3 Jets games and about 10 hockey games a year. I used to attend more but now will only attend games at 1 in the afternoon. the reason for all the drunks and morons is that with stub hub and all the tickets exchanges, anyone can get tickets and these people are usually the drunken morons. In the old days, i pretty much know all the faces around me at the games. That was the nice thing about season tickets. Now you have different faces at every game. Many of these people come to one game a year or are fans from the other teams city and they are drunken idiots, loud disrespectful to others around them and many time curse and get up and blatantly root for the visiting team .

If you want to see your team in another arena, there is no reason not to root quietly but these people are usually roughnecks looking for a fight. And as the game drags on people drink more and more. It is just amazing to me how much people drink at these games. I am no saint and drink in the parking lot tailgate, but knowing i need to commute back home, i do not drink once i get into the stadium.

Speaking of Philly fans, you guys have to check out this video of two 49ers fans in Philly, being pelted for 2 minutes straight by snowballs. Security eventually comes to escort them out for their safety. As a Philadelphian, and die-hard Eagles fans, I've never been more proud.

Thats the sad part. Here in Canada its only in the last 20 or so years that you can get booze in sporting events. Its amazing the courage some can get from 4-6 $10 beers.

Be great if they took out the inside beer sales but that ain't happening, ever.

I like the NCAA rule of no booze in stadium. Teams are now opening beers gardens at the end of the 1st qtr and now that is getting out of hand as folks don't go back to thier seats and watch game on tv.

Good times!!!

This is probably the grandaddy of them all , unfortunatley. I remember watching this live as it happened. 9yrs next month. I was stunned. Right before the 2 min mark of the video is when Ron goes into the stands.

Don't you remember anything from health class? Alcohol is an acceptable, healthy way to relax and socialize, especially in a competitive my town vs. your town setting. If you have to drive a little buzzed so be it. But weed? That supports terrorists, turns straight A students into matricidal axe wielders, promotes Satanic acitivity and killed the Easter bunny.

Thee is no reason to be nervous about wearing opposing sports teams apparel in Detroit. The fans there are great and respect the fans of opponents. Of course the bad guys will get you regardless if you're wearing a home team or an opponent jersey.

Something about beer and official NFL and NHL jerseys that turns fat guys into tuff guys. Late trains out of penn station are brutal after ranger games. Still love my pro sports though. Hate the hype and all the non stop ads and coverage but the games themselves are still fun to watch. Especially playoff hockey.

But Concerts get whatever budget I have left for my own fun. My team is undefeated at the beacon since 89

your team may be undefeated but it can get pretty rowdy in the beacon orchestra as well. as much beer as an NFL or NHL game.

I have seen the Allman Brothers Band over 60 times, more than half of those at the Beacon and even with the alcohol flowing I have never witnessed a single fist fight or physical altercation. Rooting for the same team probably has a lot to do with it.

yeah, never had a problem, it's generally a great group of people. The only trouble I had was once when some dill holes behind me started loudly shouting some really messed up stuff towards Warren when he started singing "I've Been Loving You Too Long" because it wasn't an Allman Bros song. They shut up pretty quick after pretty much everyone in the section told them they could leave if they didn't like what they paid to hear.

I think anyone SHOULD be able to get tickets to a game. One of the problems, especially for NYC sports fans, is the average fan is getting priced out. A lot of people can only afford 1 game a year. With the Giants and Jets charging ridiculous prices for season tickets in the new stadium, who can blame the average fan for having to dump a few of their tickets for money? Extra incentive since the Jets are not consistently good - if your team is good, your fans will come to the games rather than sell them to the opposition. Though, as Packers fan, there are plenty of Vikings and Bears fans who find their way into Lambeau every year. Plus their stadium is in a swamp 30 minutes outside of their city and across state lines.

As a Packers fan, I was looking into getting tickets to their game at Giants Stadium, but their tickets are more expensive than a ticket to Lambeau, which I'd rather pay airfare to in a heartbeat rather than a bus to NJ. Obviously NYC is a more expensive place than WI, but the cost of going to a sporting event in NYC is getting ridiculous. I'd rather get tickets to a Cyclones game than a Yankees game any day.

of course anyone s/b able to attend a game and yes tickets are expensive. The point i was trying to make it that it is rarely or never the people that hold the season tickets that you see making the trouble. It is people that show up in your section for that one game and act like idiots and make the game unenjoyable for everyone around them. And it is obviously only a few idiots as well.

And you can get tickets to any Jet game for $50 this year and the way the Giants are playing, i would bet you can see the Packer game for less than $100 a ticket.

I've seen verbal altercations over an ignorant sign that read WSP>ABB in '09 or whatever year that was that Panic and ABB co-headlined. I kinda wanted to get involved but I didn't feel like wasting my buzz arguing with an infidel. That show confirmed my dislike of WSP, I tried to dig the music and I absolutely love Jimmy Herring's playing but the hordes of frat boys always ruin it for me.

Coincidental, but son's name is Luke and he would never ever join the dark side!! Actually, we went to the game last year that ended in a 1-0 win for the Rangers in OT. It was toward the end of the season so it was to see who would play the Penguins in the first round essentially. I thought my son was going to cry when the Rangers scored. However, in typical Long Island fashion, this old time Islander fan came up to him and got in his face and said, "Hang in there kid!! And NEVER cheer for the Rangers!!" I told him that was sound guidance. :-)
