ESPN NY – An 8-year-old New York Jets fan was tackled by an adult Browns fan after Sunday’s game. The boy went to the game at Cleveland Browns Stadium in a Jets jersey with his father, who was born in New York. The boy’s mother said the fans in the stadium were great, but things got out of control after the game. “Calling him a bad word, to my husband and to my son, throwing food at them,” she said, according to WEWS. When the family reached the parking lot, the situation got uglier. “As [my husband] was walking, holding my son’s hand, a guy from behind tackled him. A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad’s hand. He was on the ground crying,” Danielle said. The boy was left with a scraped and bruised ankle. The mother said her husband didn’t call police, opting instead to quickly get in the car and leave. The city of Cleveland, which operates the parking lot where the alleged incident took place, previously had added extra security. The boy’s mother had been nervous about her son attending the game, but believed “kids are off limits. Clevelanders are such great people. I knew that they would never hurt an 8-year-old kid, never.” The boy might be seeing his next Jets game in New Jersey. “My husband asked him, ‘Did you have a good time?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘Would you want to go back sometime?’ And he said, ‘No, I don’t like Browns Stadium.’ Who could blame him?” the boy’s mother said.
How many times do we have to say it? You walk into enemy territory with the opponent’s jersey on your going to get form tackled and left with a bloody ankle every fucking day of the week. That’s goes triple for a Jets fan. I don’t care if you’re a 1 year old toddler or a 95 year old decrepit old man with shit in his pants. That’s how it works. You knew exactly what you were doing when you slapped that jersey on. You entered into a contract that everyone abides by. You want to be an asshole and stir up trouble? Well trouble is what you’re gonna get. Like this is fucking Cleveland pal. Don’t know if you’ve heard but they don’t handle losing real well? Wake up idiot. Probably the type of kid that shows up to class in a Lebron Heat jersey to give a presentation on Art Modell then sues the school when he gets stuffed in a fucking dumpster.
