New York Fans Can Be Douchebags Too!

Cliff Lee just fucked up the Yankees' day.  So how did their fans respond?  By throwing beer bottles and other debris into the Texas Rangers bullpen.

After the Rangers took an 8-0 lead in the top of the ninth inning, TBS cameras caught a stadium attendant picking up bottles, debris, and a foam finger from the Rangers' bullpen as Yankees fans, who have an ingrained sense of entitlement, chorused an "asshole" chant.

Cameras immediately cut away from the scene and it was never discussed by awful announcers, Ernie Johnson, Ron Darling, and John Smotlz.  How about that, another case of the national media ignoring bad fan behavior not in Philadelphia.  You could have counted down the seconds to a Santa reference if that were in Philly.

Oh yeah, a fan ran onto the field earlier in the game too.  That was barely discussed.

Video after the jump, plus a video of Cliff Lee falling during his post-game press conference-  just cause he looks nice when he's vulnerable.

Thanks to Chris Foresta for the video.

  1. Well, I don’t even know what to say. It’s unfortunate that out reputation precedes us. It’s like when the Flyers owned the Bruins in the most recent playoffs. The one promo for the NHL had Flyers coming off the bench to celebrate and also avoid a barrage of trash being thrown. Did anyone say anything about that?
    At this point, the bias and journalistic sloth is just sad.

  2. Philly has people run on fields and get national news coverage. NY has someone run on the field AND they throw bottles at the opposing team yet no national news coverage…fuck ny

  3. NY is a sh*thole anyway. They need all the help they can get to not look like the taint attached to the ass that is north jersey.

  4. Stop trying to always shift the attention away from Philly. You’re fan base is putrid and amongst the worst in the league. You can’t enjoy a baseball game at Citizen’s Park without some asshole doing something stupid. And every time an incident like this goes down, this biased website loves to report it because it makes putrid Philly fans feel better about there disgusting selves.

  5. “We are the best fan base in Philly, we are so loyal to our teams!” I’m laughing my fkn ass off. Check the attendance of the Phillies from 2000-2006, its fkn laughable. Let me rephrase that. “Philly fans are the best fans when their team is winning.” Atta way to boo Ryan Howard at the Eagle game the other day you bunch of fkn haters. Oh and lastly, check the attendance of the 76ers. Gee, what a “great fan base.”

  6. This is just proof that these classless things happen all over the country not just Philly.
    And Jon check your grammer before you come here talking sh*t. Their, not there

  7. John,
    You are all that is hated by everyone outside of your NY/North NJ. Clearly you cannot understand what is being written. The point is not to necessarily bash the Yankees, but to prove that the media has a slanted view towards Philly pro sports. Sure we have given them reasons but we are and have never been alone. The fact that we take extra punches from the media is what this article is trying to express. Now go cry about your loss on some other site…. we dont want your trash, ya PITA! (Pain.In.The.Ass)

  8. And another thing Jon the fraud. I love how a METS fan would dare bring up attendence. Your’s has been dispicable itself. I would also like you to show us all what basbeall teams sells out games when they aren’t playing well..? None. That’s how baseball works. Bringing up the Sixers attendence? Weak. You’re going to get an arena sold out when the managment makes no attempt to put together a competitive team,especially when the Eagles,Phillies and Flyers already sell out every game.. You’re probably a Nets fan,and bring up attendence. Funny. Furthermore.NY fan behavior is just as bad as Philly. No one booed Ryan Howard at the Eagles game,you loser. You need a girlfriend or a hobby in the worst way.

  9. In Philly we throw rocks into the Yankees bullpen and try to hit the players? I didn’t know that…

  10. don’t feed the trolls people. the internet connection in his mothers basement can’t handle all of this attention

  11. The Yankees have NEVER sold out a game in new Yankee stadium….never….great fans you got there Jon ya douche

  12. and then you have to go say something like that to give philly back the edge. Thanks a lot asshole

    That’s friggin’ awesome, Kate. First, it’s his spelling, not his “grammer”. Second, you misspelled “grammar”. Please stop criticizing Jon, and go punch your second grade teacher in the face for failing at his/her job.

  14. Remember when the sox won the 3rd game of the series to tie it up at 3?? It was right after a-roid smacked the ball out of Bronson Arroyos hand and the Yankees were within one run if tiying the game. The umps overturned the runs and a-roids double and the fans got so pissed they threw practically everything they had at the game onto the field. All the announcers said was they should be ashamed of themselves and it never got any national attention. Just because they have 27 championships they think they are baseball gods and are entitled to do whatever they want especially if they don’t win and last I checked they don’t play the games the players do so it’s the players job to take care of it.

  15. Stop the pissing contest. Don’t feed the trolls. Jon has shown his baseball intelligance, or lack thereof.
    NY has the WORST fans. They’re fairweather. And half of them aren’t fans…they just wear the brand so when they DO win, they aren’t left out.

  16. I guess Jon must be a Mets fan with a lot of time on his hands this time of year if he’s spending time spouting nonsense on a Philly sports website! Go someplace with your goons and yammer about next year — or better yet go get your back waxed.

    Again, friggin’ awesome. Loki, don’t use words like “intelligence” if you can’t spell them. Please join Kate on her field trip to punch your elementary school teachers in the face for not caring about their jobs. Wheeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!

  18. WOW looks like someone’s a little pissed off that they lost the spelling bee in 2nd grade.

  19. artofhiting, that’s like saying the inmates beat up the guy with the shank. the story here was the bottles and the fans running on the field.

  20. OK, I’m not excusing it, but at least the Yankholes (arrogant fans who feel they can do whatever they want because they feel entitled) only threw that crap onto the bullpen’s field, and not directly at Ranger staff and pitchers in the bullpen. This was before Feliz even started warming-up. It’s not as bad as what the asshole cubs fans did to Victorino last year. Still, I hope the NYY security took care of these unruly Yankholes.

  21. they need 2 ban those fans for life from going 2 a yankee game.i am not a philly or a yankee fan. i am a cubby fan. i would never do this at a cub game.i just dont think they need 2 put these dumb shits on the t.v. for there five mins. of fame.

  22. “You can’t enjoy a baseball game at Citizen’s Park without some asshole doing something stupid.”
    Wow good argument!!

  24. This is it! The Texas Rangers finally got their ticket to the World Series 2010! and fans start also to get their Texas Rangers Tickets It was no walk in the park. To get to the 2010 World Series the Texas Ranges had to go through a seemingly impossible line of tough baseball teams.
