Was that wrong?  Should he not have done that?

Is it a home game?  It makes a difference.

Minus the gun part, that is exactly what happened in the opening game of the 2010 season.

Sounds like a way to get some fans back in the stadium.

Actually that isn't too far outside the realm of possibility.  His face covered in coke and stripper juices waving a Colt Peacemaker around screaming for justice.  He finally collapses in a sobbing pile crying out that it's all Goodell's fault.

Oh, that's a red card for sure!

This.

As a Skins' fan, Jerry Jones charging Fed Ex Field armed is probably win-win for me.
 
2018-03-12 09:44:30 AM  
I'd watch that and I hate the Cowboys.
 
2018-03-12 09:54:04 AM  
I wouldn't even call bullshiat if you told me that already happened.
 
2018-03-12 09:59:31 AM  
Why doesn't the stadium just arm its teachers?
 
2018-03-12 09:59:38 AM  
are we all sure this has not actually happened?  because it sure sounds like a Jerry Jones kind of move to me.

That would be a game worth watching.

Trouble?

A ref dies or Jerry Jones dies.

Sounds like a win-win.

Now I want a scene that combines this with the scene in Dark Knight Rises. If it could be the opening of a movie where you have both an environmental apocalypse (a la 2012 or whatever) and a zombie uprising, it would take all of my money.

He must have had a lot of money riding on that one.

He's Greek so we can't blame Buckfast.

Something very similar happened at an LA Stallions game.

Luckily Die Hard and Major Payne were attending the game and they were able to avenge the death of Catwoman by killing a few people.

He's only allowed to do it in Texas.  FedEx field is in PG county, the home of some of the most trigger happy cops in Maryland (yes, even more than Baltimore).

The Greek PM decided to shut down all professional football over this incident.  Somewhere Trump is watching that going "You can DO that???"
 
2018-03-12 03:40:06 PM  
Actually, given the relative weaponization of each country's populace, it's more like Jerry Jones coming onto the field with a jar of smallpox and an RPG.
 
2018-03-12 03:56:31 PM  
If this were a more reputable league, this guy would not only be banned for life from any soccer stadium, they'd probably force him to sell the club.

Then again, this is the Greek Super League.  With a few Euros being sent their away, they'll forget it ever happened.

I always had Jerry Jones pegged more as a shotgun type of guy than a handgun guy.
 
2018-03-12 04:41:12 PM  
An arrest warrant has been issued against him.

Betcha did dick hightailed it back to Russia knowing he just shiat the bed and there's no way that was going to be overlooked.
 
2018-03-12 05:45:30 PM  
Holy shiat - I thought the gun-toting part of it was a headline exaggeration, but nope - that actually happened. Maybe he's mad that he's a billionaire but still dresses like a hobo.

Bob Kraft is in the high 20s. He wouldn't use a gun;  he would just have Darth Hoodie use the Force to choke the ref.

If he ever does anything evil it won't be with a handgun.  It will involve his yacht, a helicopter, and a submarine..and he'll go full Bond villain.

So he lost his temper but left his gun in it's holster? If dude was allowed to carry (billionaire, so I'm guessing yes) then this is much ado about nothing.

It's more of a 'straw that broke the camel's back' moment. A long string of incidents that FIFA keep telling them to sort out. (And if FIFA are telling you to maybe sort out your corruption problems...)

And as a Forest fan, yes, it is deeply amusing that we traded one hopeless owner for an even more hopeless one.
