While New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall was catching just one pass for 17 yards and dropping a critical throw in Monday night’s loss to the Detroit Lions, fans began tweeting their complaints and grievances at Brandon Marshall. Only the Brandon Marshall they were tweeting was, in some cases, not the Brandon Marshall they intended to direct their ire toward. Instead of the Marshall that plays for the Giants, the tweets were being directed at Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall.
Last week, the Detroit Lions asked a season-ticket holder to surrender his tickets after he disparaged African-American fans near him during the team’s home opener on Snapchat, calling them “ignorant [racial slur]” because they sat during the anthem. The tickets, of course, would wind up in someone else’s hands, but one fan asked the team if he could buy them and let the tickets go to a better cause. Andy Morse, a 30-year old from Warren, Michigan, approached the team and asked if he could buy the tickets and let charities around Wayne County, where Detroit is located, use them.
If you thought the New York Giants couldn't look any worse, you were wrong. After the G-Men's abysmal MNF loss against the Detroit Lions, a video of two Giant fans fighting in the MetLife stands surfaced this week. Allegedly, the argument started when the fan in the jersey threw up on the man in the white shirt, and then escalates when the Giants fan in the jersey throws a punch at the other fan.
