If you’re so emotionally invested in a team, that you’re willing to commit a crime to show your allegiance....

The jail is full of them here in Columbus on fall weekends. And I'm not talking about drunk kids puking on the sidewalk, I'm talking about "adults" who commit arson, assault and vandalism in their belief that it makes them Buckeye fans.

Trees can be cored and rings counted. That’s how we know CO2 causes Gorebal Warning.

I read he named his 2 daughters Bear Bryant and Crimson Tide. Crimson has a FB page and her photo is one of the trees burning. I think she was born in 1970.

Remember, it’s just entertainment.

Not to an average University of Alabama fan who never attended the University of Alabama.

I've lived all over the country. I've seen all kinds of fans of different universities with outstanding football traditions. As I sit here, a few hundred miles away, the University of Alabama is the only situation I've seen where fans honestly believe they are better in the eyes of God because they support a particular college football team. And the fans I speak about generally never attended a class in Tuscaloosa.

I believe if you could take an anonymous poll, the majority of Alabama fans who didn't attend the University of Alabama (and quite possibly a majority of those who did) are cheering Mr. Updyke.

That might be so... but poisoning someone else’s property over a football game?

I hope a judge adds as a condition of the sentence that this idiot is barred from attending Alabama games; owning Alabama paraphernalia; stepping foot on the campuses of Auburn and Alabama Universities; as well as watching them on television or listening to them on the radio.

We would do, in essence, a ‘Philip Nolan’ on him, except he'd be the Man Without a Football Team.

This would warrant the death penalty in Carmel CA.

This is like the A-hole who burned the Texas governor’s mansion. It’s just senseless vandalism.

In response to this felony by a man who just happens to be an Alabama fan, you bring up Auburn and probation? How ‘bout a little class.

I had a bama fan tell me that the bama clothes this man was wearing in pictures were not his. Just whose were they? A bama fan has gone to a t shirt place and has t shirts, mugs, etc made up with “ FREE UPDYKE” on them. I am from a small town in MS, went to MSU and I have never been around fans of either State or OM who act like these bama clowns. I do not understand it. My word, if it depended on State’s football wins to make me happy, I would be down in the dumps all of the time. Life is too important for that junk. I have been around fans from AU, AR, TN, SC, NW, OM, etc and they do not act like this. Some bama fans think they are God’s gift to mankind and can not understand why others do not feel the same way. I have lived here since 1966 and it gets worse year by year. It was worse this year because AU dared to have a better team. : )

Why do you bring something like this up when this thread is about something not even connected with it? Poor thing.

This is being tossed around on Facebook. One of the photos from his Facebook page, and a Photoshopped photo of him in orange (Auburn-colored) prison scrubs.

Photobucket

My guess is the clothes are his, particularly given that he named his dogs and child or children after the Crimson Tide. Also, would you wear an elephant that you simply borrowed to wear if you weren't a die-hard University of Alabama fan?

This is exactly the kind of crap that requires a Singapore-style FLOGGING.
