Bravo Jazz Organization! Thanks for raising the bar higher.
If this sort of ridiculous behavior continues by the "security" at Jazz
games, they won't have to worry about enforcement of the code of conduct
since there won't be any one to worry about. Jazz fans are no
different than fans at any other arena, and aren't any more
"abusive" now than they've ever been. It's simply a case of PC
enforcement being taken to the extreme. SMH
Go Harden!Go Utes!
Looks like the NBA and the Utah Jazz have adopted AYSO’s spectator policy.
It was only a warning. I am sure they just wanted him to stop being obnoxious
before he said something really stupid.
@Mr. BorisWho won the game and who is going to win this series??.. I
will give you a hint... It won't be the team you are rooting for!!!...
Won't be long and noone will go to the pro stadiums. Infact, why would you
Keep spending your hard earned money on this garbage fans.....just keep spending
your money. Oh,and by the way........next year ticket prices go up more,so
you'll get to pay more to have the Miller's tell you to pipe down.
Apparently the heckling worked. 0-15 start for Harden.
Million,Part of enjoying the game is the home court and a big part
of that is the heckling. That makes a live game fun. Honestly, stay
home if that kind if heckling is offensive.
Please, Jazz fans. Sit quietly in your seats with your hands folded in your laps
and duct tape covering your mouths. We mustn't show any emotion for your
team or against the opponent. Heaven forbid you rude, crude fanatics!
I can’t watch this new generation of hypersensitive NBA player and soI don’t watch anymore. The millennial mentality is alive and
well with professional athletes as well.As long as its not racial
stop crying and play ball.
Million - Riverton, UT" non-stop bullying style, name calling
remarks"Fan was yelling "go Harden". Not sure if that is
bullying or name calling. Seems we're all a little bit touchy any more. Why go to a game? I stayed home and yelled anything I wanted during the game.
Correct me if I'm wrong but this heckling was pre-game, not during the
game. Doesn't Bear do pre-game entertaining antics, some of which could be
described as heckling or bothersome to the Jazz opponents ? Jazz fans have the
reputation of being obnoxiously loud in hopes of helping and inspiring the Jazz
and intimidating the opponent, of COURSE within reasonable decorum. I, for one,
don't want to reach the point in basketball games where we as fans have to
be TOTALLY silent while the opponent, ( James Harden ! ), shoots free throws and
I'm pretty darn sure that any opponent would not want that either !
Obnoxious fans who make non-stop bullying style, name calling remarks ruin the
game for other people who just want to come and enjoy the game. And the fans
who laugh at their remarks just encourage the boorish and churlish behavior. I
applaud the efforts by the arena staff.
Sure, there should be no racist, sexist, etc things being said, but now Jazz
fans aren’t allowed to heckle? Too bad professional sports has gotten so
soft. Jazz fans should just stay home and watch one tv rather than pay all that
money to enter the fun zone zone.
Wait, fans can't call Harden a "flopper?" Is it also wrong to refer
to Gobert as "tall?"
You've got to be kidding me. A fan got a warning for that. If it was me,
I would never spend another dollar to see another Jazz game. The Jazz
organization owes this fan an immediate apology. This kind of anti fan attitude
will backfire on them if it continues.
Harden got the last laugh anyway tonight. If only the Jazz could get someone
else that opposing fans would do the same kind of mocking, teasing, etc. to. I
would love to see that happen to the Jazz when they travel.Unless we
do we will continue to exit the playoffs early on.
What the fan did was NOT against theFan Code of Conduct. There was no
obscene language or gestures, no throwing of objects, no fighting, trying to
enter floor, etc.Teasing is not allowed for the modern professional
athlete. Heckling is not allowed for the modern professional athlete. No poking
fun at, no joking, no mocking?Most important part of this fans
behavior toward James Harden, no telling the truth about Harden if it hurts.
I guess that it's appropriate at Easter that the Jazz organization has
grown a set of " rabbit ears " !
Come on, this was completely different than the Westbrook incident. Nothing
offensive was said.
This is turning into golf or polo. Nothing disrespectful or personal was said.
Political correctness gone amuck. Yes, if someone googles a player and starts
talking smack about their kids, using the kids names, or swearing, or saying
racist taunts. Sure, warn or toss them. But Go Hardin? Look, I’ve never
sworn at a player, but 30 years ago I loved to yell at them. Now, it’s
just, “Well done”. The players in the 80s and 90s are rolling their
eyes. I can’t wait until the NFL tries this with Raider Nation. Or the
Yankee/Red Sox games.
