Hehehehe, maybe so, but in a sport where coaches cuss at officials and kick dirt on home plate and you have bad sportsmanship all around, what do you expect?

Sportsmanship is all well and good. We should have it in most sports. The problem is, the human nature calls for no holds barred bloodsport and everything has gotten so PC that sports don't satisfy that anymore. I'm not a sports fan at all, but I miss the old days of football where every player had their own signature celebration dance after scoring a touchdown. What pansies have we become to limit celebration after a big score?

That's why I like hockey. Got a problem? Duke it out.

Any fanbase would have reacted that way. If that happened in cuba there would be a full blown riot.

Whatever, I'm proud of our fan base. The next time some Jerk tries to publish an article calling Atlanta sports fans the worst in the country, let him take a good long look at the above picture first.

Blame it on MLB for this stupid one game playoff. Your season can end b/c of one bad call. Play 8 months and win 94 games but if u want to make it to the real playoffs you have to play one game against a team that has won 7 fewer games than u.

I think it was an appropriate response for the situation...the whole charade left a bad taste in everyone's mouth and people vented their frustrations. I agree that it (or worse) would have happened in any stadium.

No its not! This is passion & frustration & alcohol. Its good the Braves fans are passionate about their team. Its good to see fans rage out sometimes. Its been a long time since Braves won anything & I'm sure the frustrtion is there.

Stay classy Atlanta...

Or is "classy Atlanta" an oxymoron?

Sorry, but your opinion is not very popular here, and your criticism of Atlanta fans is obviously unwelcome. I'm not sure why anyone would take such a stance on the day after last night's fiasco, but doing so certainly doesn't display any class.
