Should booing be banned at sporting events?

Tue Mar 10, 2020 5:46 am

I think that booing at a sporting event is disrespectful. What do you think should happen?

No.

A. If you're not against the other team, there is no reason for sports.

B. It brings camaraderie among the fans, especially when booing a bad call made by the refs.

C. Booing can be just as fun as cheering.

Of course not. I mean when Tavares came back to NY after leaving the Islanders they booed him, flipped him off and burned his Jersey in the parking lot. All justified!

Are you kidding? No way.

Growing up, attending SF 49er or Giants games and booing the Rams or Dodgers was what most of us looked forward to most. Hearing 50k people chanting ‘Beat LA!’ is a cherished memory of any Bay Area kid.

Regardless of reasons for or against it, how exactly do you propose to deal with a ban on booing?

I like the booing, but I'd ban the beer. Don't like the smell of it, as it's split by many. I'd rather people smoke pot than drink beer at a sporting event.

This a stupid PC idea, crowd participation (including booing) are why people go to live events rather than stay at home and watch on tv.

How would you implement such a policy? Good luck trying to stop thousands of people booing.

Any other daft ideas?

Bah, that's nothing. Shouldn't the fans invade the field and attack the players instead?

That's what happened in some local football matches here, even when the players are juniors (eg, under 18). Someone doesn't like a call the ref made, then it's an all in brawl! :roll:

short polite boos indicating disapproval are OK, and as well an exceptionally fine play by the other team deserves tepid applause. Stories from yesteryear. LOL

I'd restrict alcohol to just the first half of the game. You can then allow the effect to wear off when the game starts getting more intense and avoid a recipe for disaster if two drunks from opposing teams taunt each other while walking out.

Oh come on...


Basketball booing is actually encouraged during certain events like opponent free throws.

Also..."refs you suck" chants are not going anywhere.

It's professional sports, not kid's no one looses house league. It's also part of home advantage; People boo you on the road it's part of the game.

Now there are times it is very wrong... During national anthem or moments of silence for example... But during game play no. Really booing is cheering, just done differently, do you want to get rid of cheering and applause too? Ban the wave? Kick people out for whistling?

While no 50k, hearing 15k Sharks fans yelling "Beat LA" for the first 5 minutes of a playoff game is fantastic, if only because for the other 55 minutes the 5k Kings fans get to tell " You choked"...Again

See, there has to be booing and talking trash in sports, as long as it's done in a "friendly" way, the idiots that want to fight because of it I have no time for.

I do have to wonder what American sports fans would think of some of the EPL chants.

Every hockey game I have ever been to, the same thing happens. No matter how many opposing team fans there are in the stadium, all the fans come together when those black and white striped jerseys come onto the ice.

One of the greatest goalies in Canucks history was Roberto Luongo. When he stepped onto the ice at Rogers Arena, the entire crowd let loose with "LUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!" One of my nephews one time asked why they are booing their own goalie....

This is what I find most hillarious about sports on the club level: owners of those sports clubs do it for the money, players on the field/court/pitch pick and choose clubs based on who gives them the best deal, great deal or any deal.
Only the poor fools in the stands go crazy when someone "betrays" their, purely imaginary, sense of club loyalty.

It makes perfect sense. This player gives the fans some good seasons and then leaves. There was magic and excitement tied to that player. It goes the same way when a source of pure evil joins your favorite team. Mark Messier was on the Canucks and it dragged the team down.

I don't personally like booing, but it is part of fan support in many sports.

What I find disrespectful is booing the winning team at the end of a fair match. This happens all the time with fans of one particular team in my sport of preference and they can just go screw themselves.

Yes, and while we're at it lets ban all alcohol sales, fan clothing and jeans. A polo shirt or tie to support your team is fine. Anyone in contravention of the dress code shall be ejected from the venue. Any booing or disrespectful comments is grounds for a life ban.


Seriously though, I'm trying to imagine going to the Showdown between the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide AFL teams, or the State of Origin between the QLD and NSW Rugby league teams without booing or any banter and to be honest I'd think I'd rather stay home and knit (like a good portion of Adelaide's fan base).

Or cheering...

Actually, it reminds me of another boring sport to watch - Golf. Does anyone boo at a golf tournament anyway?

Back to OP - why should booing be banned? Not necessarily against the opposing team, but there's always those very questionable ref decisions.

I'm not saying you do this, but I have absolutely no respect for people when they get all pissy and boo a ref or a call against their team when the person knows their team was in the wrong

For example, the ref saying it was a touchdown, it goes into review, we all see the replay and it's absolutely clear there was no touchdown, the decision is reversed, and then the fans boo it. Give me a break. I thought we wanted to win by being good not because of an accidental bad call

Dude was wrong about the San Jose crowd being the loudest. Vancouver really gave it to him. Remember they rioted after getting embarrassed at home in game 7, they sure as hell weren't going to put up with Bettman's riff raff.

Side note: I know in the NHL the commish represents the owners, but what the hell do they see in him? Does he really bring anymore financial success to the league than an average schmo executive? Why do they tolerate the league being represented by this clown?

The Adelaide teams boo the visitors during matches but are good sports in the end. Brisbane fans aren't.

When Messier put the but of his stick in Linden's eye and Linden got a 5 minute major, when Babych was tripped and got a 2 minute, when Bure was hooked and he got a 5 minute major, and you ask why we are angry?

The Rangers BOUGHT The Cup. They could not have won it any other way. Bettman needed the Rangers to win so Americans could love hockey.

Never had I before that one incident,or incidents. I guess you had to be there, I was not the only one not pleased, but as I said, my timing was off. My Grandson is now playing JV and I do not boo as I had not before as I said. I do not think my record is too bad, my son now 52 played sports, never boo'd once in his career.
