A former Oregon Duck player decided to attend the UCLA-Oregon game over the weekend. His experience went so poorly that he felt the need to share it with John Canzano of the Oregonian in a letter.
The ignorance was very bliss in the section of the former Duck.
“My friend and I took our seats where I soon became acquainted with the most ignorant people in all of college football. Directly behind me were a couple of drunk (expletive) who criticized Marcus’ ability to throw the football, DeAnthony’s ability to run the football, the lineman’s ability block, and the coach’s ability to analyze film and call plays. After hearing so much ignorant (expletive), I turned around to tell the “fans” to chill the (expletive) out. Marcus had overthrown a receiver on a tough play and the spectator made comment, “Hey, Marcus! Throw it inbounds, dumbass!” in, which I finally had enough, and turned around and asked if he would like to get down there and take Marcus’ place. The man responded, “No”. Then I asked if we were all still rooting for Oregon, in which he responded in an aggressive, irrelevant and incoherent manner and so I decided to discontinue the conversation I had started with him.”
The anonymous former player received verbal slander from fans, telling him to shut up and that he doesn’t know football. Despite of the disturbing experience, he will still support his school but left the fans with one message in his letter.
“I will always love the ducks: my coaches, my teammates, my brothers and family. The rest… Go (expletive) yourselves.”
