Some people simply won’t behave properly, despite repeated requests to cease the violence. The state of Alabama received a lot of attention last month. The incident on the riverboat demonstrated that Black people can unite for the correct causes. The incident at the Bama game, however, demonstrated another side to human folly. One of the football players fought with the referee after the game before punching him in the face.
Sports bring out some of the oddest emotions from fans and players. In the heat of the moment, people involved in sports will say or do anything. It’s especially tough when the game is close and one of the teams loses. Fans and players, alike, get upset with the referees, and accuse them of tipping the game to the opposing team. Sometimes, people can take things too far.
After the game, it was obvious that one of the Alabama State players was upset. After the game was ended, he managed to get into a fight with one of the referees. Right in front of the bleachers, the two were engaged in a heated argument. The spectators enjoyed a front row seat to the game as a result. After the altercation, the player became angry and struck the referee in the face with a swing at him.
