A Rant...

I think I'm going to post any photos I have of tonight's game against Chicago later... I'm simply just too incredibly pissed off. I have never been so disappointed in the Cauldron's behavior.

I can understand being upset about the non-call on the absolutely obvious penalty involving Omar Bravo. It made me think that Michael Kennedy still hates the team formerly known as the Wizards. Little Napoleon seriously needs to pull his head out of his ass.

That still does not excuse the deplorable behavior from the Cauldron. Boo, sure. Carpet bomb the field with F-bombs, okay. Start the Who's Your Daddy chant, fine. But DO NOT start throwing stuff on the field. There is absolutely no reason for beers and other liquids to come flying out of the stands. I was sitting on a stool in front of the Cauldron and if one of those drinks had hit my camera and fried it, I would have been needing the security or police to hold me back to keep me from shoving my monopod where the sun doesn't shine. My camera is expensive and I don't have the money to replace it, so if you break it, you'll be buying me a new one.

It's bush league bullcrap and we, as a fanbase, need to be better than that.


  1. Except that the majority of the bottles came from the concourse/bridge above the Cauldron.

  2. Understood, Mark. Probably said it was The Cauldron because I couldn't see where most of it was coming from and I was more concerned with not getting hit with it. Apologies to those people who were behaving themselves...

    But my larger point remains... We, as a fan base (not just the Cauldron, but everybody), need to be better than that...
