Steeler wide receiver Mike Wallace tweeted that Giants fans were throwing things at him during his teams contest at Metlife Stadium.Photo Credit: Creative Commons The Steelers and the Giants played an intense, well-fought football game this afternoon, where the Steelers came out with a victory, 24-20. The game had many ups and downs, and was a well-played game by both sides; the kind of football any fan should enjoy watching. However, at some point, I would assume as the game was wrapping up, Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace said that Giants fans were throwing things at him:   Lol the Giants fans were really throwing stuff at me!! #Crazy — Mike Wallace (@Wallace17_daKid) November 5, 2012   As a Giant fan, this absolutely disturbs me. I hate when a couple of idiots ruin the reputation of a great fan base, like the Giants have. Under no circumstance is it ever acceptable to do things like this. Paying for your tickets, no matter the price, does not mean you get to lack human decency. I am sure some people will use alcohol as a crutch, and blame it on the booze T-Pain style. If you can’t handle your liquor, and your teams loss like a man/woman, just stay home. The Giants got beat, fair and square, in a hard-fought game by both sides. Simply put, the Steelers were the better team, and instead of being bitter, these knuckleheads should appreciate the effort both teams showed on the field. This doesn’t even consider the great act by the Steelers to travel to the game day-of in order for citizens of the New York/New Jersey area to be able to stay in hotels, as many of them are still without power and homes due to Hurricane Sandy. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first, or last time something like this will occur, as fans seem to think their purchase of a ticket gives them free reign to do whatever they please.
