Footballer Tim Howard Seyz Kansas City Security 'Negligent' Amid Mother Lovin' Cursing Match With Sporting Fan
Defiant blame game tactics from this soccer dude who stumbled upon trouble and an EPIC suspension after his encounter in Kansas City.
Here's part of what he says . . .
Tim Howard: "I feel compelled to elaborate a bit more based upon the responses of others. After reviewing the incident in Kansas City, my league and my team chose to admonish me and suspend me for almost 10% of the season, but they did not say a word about the fan’s antagonistic behavior or the negligent security. While I regret my reaction and understand the need to take action on their part, I am surprised and concerned that the full context of the incident wasn’t considered and responsibility wasn’t shared.
"We all want passionate fans but there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed. It is not ok for an apparently drunk fan to get inches away from an athlete’s face and yell obscenities at them. While I should have controlled my reaction, I want to make it clear that I have never been put into a situation like that until Kansas City. I’m not a security expert, so don’t know the details of how a fan could get so close, but it was not the norm and not right . . . "
