Beyond belief, pretty rude and obnoxious. I am surprised other fans in the area didn't take action or speak up, I would have. All it would take is leaving to go to the washroom, tell security on the way.

The kicking game was the one aspect the Lions did well for many years. Now we're awaiting kicker number three. I don't recall a situation like this before. Rough going as everyone on the scrap heap was cut/released for a reason. Just hope whomever is signed can kick the ball end-over-end as opposed to sideways.

Giorgio Tavecchio tweeted, Dear Lions, do you need a kicker? #Sergio #Ready He was the guy who did well in camp for the Packers when Crosby struggled in 2012. McCarthy kept calling him Sergio instead Giorgio and he was pretty good.

A Lions fans was also using the laser pointer when Carpenter missed the 51 yard field goal early in the game. He was complaining to the ref about it after the kick.

Isn't he on the Raiders now? Lions cut him last minute and kept Freese. Odd thing is, Tavecchio was better in camp.

It would be incredible if this is the guy who used the laser pointer & he was dumb enough to tweet about it.

Quote:
Some Bills fans and others posting about the incident on social networks believe they identified the person responsible after sharing screen shots of tweets bragging about what happened. The Twitter account has been deactivated.
NFL investigating Bills laser pointer complaint

"Got Kyle Orton complained to the ref when I got him with the laser," one deleted tweet from the account @MarkoBeslach said, according to a cached version of the Twitter page hosted by Google.
