Fans

This evening some fans accosted Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub at his home. What would make someone do something like that? There have been stories in the past of fans stalking athletes and doing things like burning jerseys. In Schaub’s case there has been a sandwich named after him called the Pick Six, his jersey been burned, and now this situation. Fans are short for fanatics and sometimes their passion has gone over the line, but in this case there was no call for that. Remember when Tommy Maddox has his lawn trashed after an interception that was returned for a touchdown in an overtime loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2005. What would have happen if it became a physical confrontation between Schaub and that fan?
