Braves Fans

Please be careful when you are walking around the upper decks of stadiums and arenas.

Ronald Lee Homer Jr. was a lifelong Braves fan and it appears to have been an accident but the police are still investigating.

The family believes the Braves are at fault.

“He went up there to smoke a cigarette,” Ronald Homer Sr. said Tuesday morning in a phone interview. “He was 6-foot-6, 6-foot-7, and those railings where he was are not tall enough; they are not tall enough for being that high up and that dangerous.”

“This is not going to be the end of this,” said Homer Sr., who added he and his wife, Connie, have considered talking with a lawyer about the incident.

“They need to fix that. That’s a flaw in engineering,” Homer Sr. said. “I don’t care if we don’t get a nickel, no one should go through what his mother and I are going through right now.”

Just a sad story all the way around. The Braves had not comment.

    Hey opportunistic parental units, ya know what I do when I’m standing near a 65 foot drop off? I don’t go near it. Evidently, your dumb ass son isn’t as smart as the rest of us. Your son’s body is still warm, and you’re already threatening a lawsuit. You are scum.

    This is the Braves’ 17th season in Turner Field. Probably close to 50 million fans have seen the Braves play at Turner Field since it opened. Yet, after all that time and all those fans, only NOW do we discover an “engineering problem”??? No, there’s no engineering problem. The only problem is with your dumb ass……………..and probably liquored up…………son. Given your response within hours of his death, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree……… pun intended.
