Fair enough! Its time this story dies and that stupid player learned from his mistake. Remember, the fans pay your salery.

Sure the player deserved to be suspended, I think 6 games is a bit much, but what about the fan? When are fans penalized for being stupid? I don't believe he only said what he said "way to be professional", that comment wouldn't be the start of something like that. There's more to it than that. And of course he seeks legal advice, give me a break. Fans think they are so safe to open their mouths,..seriously, he wouldn't say it to the guy if they were on the same ground level and it wasn't in the area that he was in at a game. He felt safe. ha! Open your mouth? Then you deserved the consequences too.

Ron Artest thinks this mouth-breathing goon got off way too lightly.

I'd prefer to see a cage fight match between Rypien and the pencil necked fan who taunted him. Let's see how tough Mr. Poindexter is when he doesn't have the safety of security ppl around.

And now this idiot fan has already contacted a lawyer and plans on suing for emotional distress. Give me a break some low-life punk thinks he is going to get rich off this now. Pathetic
