I sit at the scorers table which is directly across from the home and visitors bleachers at girls and boys sophomore and varsity basketball games and have witnessed so many fans acting beyond rational behavior. It is sad. I don't know if it is getting worse than it was 40-50-60 years ago, but it isn't getting better.

Just last Saturday at a girls sophomore game a fan was berating an official. There was a foul against the other team and it was the 7th team foul, but there were no free throws given. The fan was upset. The official calmly told him there were no free throws because it was a player control foul. The fan looked at him and said, "What's that?" :roll:
