Just about everyone in the sports world knows about what happened Friday night between the Pacers and Pistons. For those of you who don't there was a brawl that broke out between fans and players. Artest and Stephen Jackson went a little beyond the scope of sanity; but does this warrant a 5 foot nothing fat out of shape chump without a stitch of athletic experience to judge the most athletic entertainers in the world. David Stern has no idea what it is like being pushed to your limits by media and drunken fans day in a day out. Stern doesn't have the credentials to judge these men as peers. It is dusturbing that the NBA (most likely featuring the best athletes in the world) has a chump governing it. In terms of economics, David Stern is most concerned about dollar signs. He wants fans to generate revenue by following the NBA and participating as much in the game as possible. In this case the fans were behaving like monkeys. Throwing beer and other drinks on men who are playing a game with high end emotion is unbelievable. Drunken fans talk trash about wives, family members, and ridicule the most intimate aspects of one’s life. Often times these fans are overheard by those very players immediate friends and family who went to support and enjoy the loved athlete. When heckling ones most intimate emotions is combined with physical abuse, you have one heck of a problem. The David Sterns knows nothing of physical competition or the emotions that come with pushing oneself to the brink of mental and physical stress. Many argue that Artest is a psychotic along with Stephen Jackson, and Jermain O'neil. Columnist Bill Simmons blames Artest for “going after the wrong guy” Simmons says “It wasn’t that guy but the guy behind him who threw the cup of beer”. When you temporarily lose sanity do to the abuse of 20,000 it is hard to tell one apart from the other. Although only say 30 people were guilty of throwing things, most everyone is guilty of defemation of ones character.
