I’m not questioning what happened in this video clip. However, this video clip should have ended up with the police first, not Coug Center. My post centers on Coug loyalty.
Initially, I didn’t see any publicity from major news outlets, until Coug Center started publicizing it. As a result, all this blogging (which is more than the Huskies are doing) has put a pall on the most important victory in 4 years that Coug fans have ever had. I’m not saying don’t go after the person who did this. Involve the police. But look what has happened. Several mainstream news outlets have picked up a Coug Fan video clip & words from a Coug fan blog site. Forget about the 99.99% innocent fans. In other words, the police should have made this public first, or at the least, a Huskie website. Blog after that, if you will, but why be the ones to initiate it?
As a fan, I am disappointed. Now, you’ve made sure everyone “remembers” this. Thanks for dampening my spirit of this victorious game. And, I may not be in your champagne category, but I’m old enough to be your parent and perhaps a little wiser. Here’s the bottom line, though. I can’t even fathom a Huskie fan site obsessing over a similar incident at their stadium. As a matter of fact, to crystalize my point, here’s a direct quote from their blog, “In case you hadn’t heard, the guys at Coug Center have video of ASJ getting roughed up by field-storming fan after the game. Before you go blowing up over this, do note that ASJ has basically blown it off.” Need I say more? This article needs to be deep-sixed.
