Seahawks Players & Jags Fans Both Acted Reckless
Seattle-Jacksonville are two teams that do not play each other often. They used to be cousins when the Gus Bradley regime was there, but things changed a little bit since the last time around. Jaguars are contenders for an AFC South crown, and Seattle is fighting for their playoff lives. In a game where the Jacksonville dominated in certain parts, it came down to the wire. With a testy finish due to a dirty ass play by Man of the Year nominee Michael Bennett, Quinton Jefferson and Sheldon Richardson were both ejected from the game. All hell broke loose as Jags fans threw a beer at the Seahawks players, and we nearly had another Ron Artest moment on our hands. No one should be pointing the finger.

Here’s the thing… Should you ever throw things at players? Absolutely not. Should the Seahawks defensive end not tried to end a guy’s season by rolling up on him? Yes, no question about it. Two wrongs do not make a right. We all know that. We’ve been taught that through our years, but people seem to want to shame the Jags fans only. Why? Because they’re Jags fans or is it that the players are never the bad guys anymore? It’s almost become taboo to hate on players unless it has to do with them handing out concussions.
Bennett should be down for at least a game, and Jefferson shouldn’t be even though he clearly wanted to fight a fan.
