Fans running onto the field of play doesn’t seem to happen as often as I remember as a youngster. And even when it does happen, television cameras cut away. The idea behind not showing these nuisances to game play is that it discourages copycat behavior.
Be that as it may, I believe watching Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner absolutely destroy a fan running on the field and eluding security would have a similar impact:
On the one hand, saying you got to share the field with stars like Aaron Donald and Deebo Samuel is pretty cool. But on the other hand, what good is that story if you’re not alive to tell it? Seriously. Wagner, an All-Pro linebacker with a championship pedigree, absolutely unloaded on that fan.
There are all sorts of fines and punishments that fan will have to deal with, but none as painful as that hit. OUCH!
