People are mad at Ryan Braun. So much so that a fan decided to go to a Brewers game this week wearing his jersey but with a twist. According to USA Today Sports, Karen Eidem wore Braun’s jersey, but she placed the letter F over the B in his name and the letter D over the N. Basically, it said Fraud. Upon seeing the jersey, stadium security informed Eidem that if she didn’t take the shirt off she would be immediately escorted out and that was the end of that (or so they thought). Eidem decided to take her story to the media, and reaction from the Brewers team wasn’t surprising. They issued a statement saying: “In this case, the fan absolutely should have been able to wear the jersey without any intervention by our staff. We welcome the opportunity for fans to express their opinions. The only circumstances that would warrant us intervening is if someone were to display a message or item that would be considered offensive to other fans. This is not a case where that line was crossed, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience to her. We will reach out to Ms. Eidem to invite her to another game this year as our guest.” This probably won’t be the end of these kinds of antics, but it would be interesting to see what plays on Arod’s name the fans in New York will have.

  • Security guards are nothing but rent-a-cops, wanna be policeman. The Brewers should can this assshole for hassling this lady, especially since she's right.
