One Reason Why I’d Be Overthrown If I Ruled The Dodgers But I’d Do It Anyway

Because I’d’ve forfeited yesterday’s and every damn game going forward until the apprehension of the suspects wanted in the post opening-game beating that put a Santa Cruz paramedic and father of two into the hospital in critical condition. Plus I’d put up $100,000 in team money as a reward for their arrest and conviction.

But nothing so extreme and outrageous and defiantly zero tolerance occurred to the the Dodgers who instead give us a front office spokesperson who gives us this: “It is extremely unfortunate that this incident took place on what was otherwise a great day at Dodger Stadium for tens of thousands of fans.”

Really?

Sure, I understand the show must go on and theĀ  game must be played. But I also understand that doctors are trying to decide whether or not to remove a part of the victim’s brain.

From the Daily News:

Bryan Stow, 41, is in a medically-induced coma today with brain injuries delivered by two Dodgers fans. Stow, wearing San Francisco Giants apparel, was jumped, knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked in the head after Thursday night’s game, his relatives said.

According to police the attackers are 18-25 years old, were wearing Dodgers attire and had shaved heads and thin mustaches. One had a small goatee, and the other had numerous tattoos on his neck, said Detective Percy Morris at a news conference Friday. A female reportedly drove the getaway car the suspects got into after the assault.

Police urge anyone with information on the attack to call police at the Northeast Station at 213/485-2563.

  1. You know Dodger fans are the rudest. Its not like being at an Angels game at all. The last time we went to an Angels/Dodgers game at Dodger stadium some fan from the upper regions that snuck down to where we were actually dumped a beer on boys for cheering for a good Angels play. Sorta put a damper on the whole game.

    The two thugs that did this ought to be banned from Dodger Stadium after that stunt on top of whatever other punishment they get. Its not good the poor man is in a medically induced coma as that is a treatment of near last resort with head injuries. I hope he fares well.

    Its just sickening.

    1. Well, let’s not put them ahead of Red Sox fans. Those have to be the worst o’ the worst (up until now, anyway….)

  2. They should forfeit the entire season when they run commercials that celebrate thugs:

    If I’d written or approved the ad copy that says “Blood will run blue.” (Not to mention editing it to an image of a tat and a voice over that says “We’re here to be aggressive, we’re coming after you”), I’d be feeling pretty dirty and small right now in light of what happened the other night.
