UTAH FANS WORST IN THE NBA-SOME RACIST TO THE CORE
Latest news: Fan in question banned from UTAH JAZZ for LIFE….
The Utah Jazz “ugly fans” raised their heads last night in their NBA contest with the Oklahoma City Thunder in Salt Lake City. Known for being the least accommodating fan base, the racial overtones directed toward the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook was outrageous.
Fans that attend NBA games should know that racist shit and/or personal insults toward players with regard to words and content have limits and the fans Utah again went over the line. For one of the most religious and peaceful parts of the country, the Utah fans in question are not representative of the city or state. Yet, the Utah franchise of the NBA is responsible to monitor their fans and remove said fans that break the rules of being an appropriate fan that attends a game they hold. From reports, four fans of the Jazz were ticketed with “yellow cards” by the on-site security.
Continued disrespectful fan behavior in Utah is expected as this has been an ongoing problem with the Jazz fan base and the opposing players. Fans in other cities would not be allowed to come back to the arena for a period of time. That is, they would be suspended and their season tickets taken away. Not in Utah. They continue to attend and spew their racist shit.
As for Russell Westbrook, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Thunder fans that have to spend time in the Salt Lake City basketball facility, expect to be disrespected, yelled at, cursed at, and if black, racially assaulted.
That is the way I see it sports fans.
