A WHOLE PIE!

It is all over the media. Chris Long had bottles thrown at him as he walked out of Bank of America stadium. Even Terry Bradshaw has called Panthers fans stupid for the incident.

 

The real story is not so clear cut.

 

You see, I am the guy that is seen walking behind Long as he was ejected. I took great note of what was happening, after all, its not every game that a player is ejected and forced to do the walk of shame across the home crowd.

 

My best description of Chris Long's demeanor was that he thought he was a pro wrestler. With his helmet off, he cursed the fans with expletives while making direct eye contact with them.

 

The first bottle thrown at him landed just a few feet from me. It was an empty aluminum beer bottle. The second bottle thrown near the tunnel was a water bottle,

 

I spoke with two police officers who were investigating the incident and trying to identify the first bottle throwing offender. Apparently he would be ejected from the game.

 

Chris Long then took to Twitter to complain about bottlegate...
 

 

Chris Long @JOEL9ONE 13h

Thanks Carolina fans 4 the flipped birds+few bottles to the head. Sticks n stones may break my bones but aluminum zimas will never hurt me.

 

 

Pretty funny actually.

 

While the throwing of the bottles should not have happened, Long deserves some of the blame that it did. You cannot expect to walk three feet from a large group of fired up football fans and shout expletives to them without any repercussion.

 

To avoid the entire situation next time, Chris, keep your helmet on and your mouth closed. I suspect there would be a better result.

I thought the route he took & the way he was walking/carrying himself was going to lead to something like that.. funny how Terry defended him, if I'm Howie Longs kid, I'm not getting caught up in this with fans. Its not like he was minding his business heading towards the exit. He did confront the fans, then the following action ensued. Bradford being carted off didn't lead to a wave of cheers (which has happened to other QBs in home/road games) and I thought it was classy that they didn't.

I always drink Zima with a strawberry jolly rancher in the bottom.

 

And one in the Zima too.

Exactly the Reason why I threw gum at Jim Cornett, manager of the Midnight Express and it stuck in the back of his hairsprayed hair back in 88!

Don't call the Fayetteville Memorial Arena a bunch of dumb rednecks!! I will protect thee.


I assume The few bottles thrown at him were only in protection as he seemed like he would jump into the crowd Ron Artest style at any moment.

Yeah who walks around the field when they get rejected?  The NFL needs to make it policy that players that rejected take the quickest possible route to exit the bowl area.  Even if it means crossing the field.

The guy was acting as if someone had just fuged his mom. Not condoning the bottle throwing, but the punk was asking for it.

Zod, He's claiming he was pointing to who threw the garbage, any chance that's true from your perspective on the field?
