I appreciate your perspective, on what was happening at the time of the play at first regarding Braun and Pujols. My impression of what happened was the following: Yes, reaction cheering for hopefully a safe call at first, then booing the umpire yes, then cheering again as Albert is rolling around on the ground. The initial play, crowd reaction yes was loud, booing was loud. Then the longer the injury situation seemed to go on, the cheering was definitely there, and it wasn't just a few. The audio of the crowd noise was in my opinion lowered by the production crew, from what seemed to be happening when I was there live. That, or I just happened to have all of the several hundred people in the stadium who were cheering the apparent injury sitting right around me.
My point all along on bumping this thread was to try and bring attention to celebrating injuries to another team. No, I am not celebrating the injuries to the brewers in bumping this thread. I just think to celebrate injury to another player, even a very much disliked player from another team, is yes, classless.
I am sure this will not change what others are saying in this thread, and that is fine, nothing will probably change their mind.
Wow, you really need to try and come up with some fresh material, lol. And even your screen name says it all, if you buy into stuff that Haudricourt is writing, HAHAHAHA. That is even better. I'm not trying to stereotype or judge ALL brewers fans, just trying to say that stuff like this thread that you started, celebrating injuries from another team, any other team, or players, even if I don't like them is classless. That was my intent from when I bumped this post.
I did not post anything about Braun when it looked like he might miss 50 games, or anything hopeful when it looked like he might have a serious achilles problem. The guy can flat out hit, and play, and I enjoy seeing him play and put on a show.
Not trying to say all of em are. I do have a lot of Brewer fans and Cub fans who are friends of mine that I enjoy talking baseball with all the time. Not just sticking things in their face, genuinely talking about our teams, other teams and players in the league, etc. I am not trying to direct this at all Brewer fans.
There have been multiple times over the last several years, when I've tried to take my family or my son to games at Miller Park, and we have had ridiculously bad experiences from fans. I won't go into all the details, cause I know you guys don't want to hear them. It's just frustrating when you can't just take your kids to see a ball game without something happening.
Like what? People that aren't brewer fans go to games all the time. I see plenty of people wearing opposing team colors at games and they seem to get by just fine. Even last time when in my section there were two of the most obnoxious and idiotic fans I've ever seen and nothing bad happened to them. Though both of them deserved an <ass kicking.
I mean do you sit in the bleachers? That could maybe explain it if you do.
Usually we have been in terrace reserve, just because of finances, and that is all I can afford when I'm bringing the family. Usually buy them through stubhub.
Ok, here is one of the trips to Miller Park with just me and my 10 year old son. We make it a point to not be obnoxious or anything. We are going to cheer for the cardinals, though, and we wear cardinals stuff.
Anyway, this family sits behind us, mom, dad and mid-20's son. Dad and son are drinking like crazy, and from the beginning of the game the son is dropping fbombs like crazy, yelling crazy stuff, and I am convinced he was doing it just to try and irritate my 10 year old son, and yes it was irritating for him. I can hear the mom say to him, hey tone down the language a little bit. He says, that is just part of going to the f-ing ballpark, and he should get f-ing used to it. There were other kids who were brewer fans around too, other families in the area. It was really over the top. Then as he and dad get up to get what was at least round 4 or 5, he knocks his last one over and spills probably 1/4 cup of beer down his back. I try to clean him up as best I can with napkins and stuff. They come back to their seats, and I hear the mom say, you spilled beer on that boy, you should apologize. Same response, that's just part of going to the ballpark, he needs to get used to it, laced with profanity again, blah, blah, blah.
And, he and his dad, loudly "talking baseball" all game long were total idiots. At one point the son loudly proclaims I hate baseball, there's not enough scoring. They have too many defenders on the field. they should take some defensive players off the field so they score more. 10 defenders is way too many! I wanted to turn around and tell the guy that this isn't slow pitch softball, or little league, but I bit my tongue. Their drivel about the statistics being flashed on the board that they knew NOTHING about nearly drove me insane.
Another time we were there with another friend of mine and his son, and again, the fbombs were flying all around us, and we even had a guy get in our faces as he was leaving trying to get us to take a swing at him, with our sons right there with us, too.
That was two games in a row, and after which my son didn't really want to go to a game over there again. So for NLCS game 6, I took a friend of mine and the two of us went. It was ok, and overall the fans we were around were pretty cool. I did take him to a game earlier this year, with some freebies we got from two friends of ours who were brewer fans. Don't know if that made a difference or not, but we had a great time that day.
It just seems the last 3-4 years, things have really been bad when I've tried to take the family and just go to a ballgame together. Sorry so long, but you asked, so I thought I would explain a couple of our experiences.
I have fond memories of going to the ballpark with my dad growing up, busch stadium most of the time, but also to wrigley a lot, and don't remember ever having stuff like this going on around us.
Cool story, poor person.
Get a better job
"Usually we have been in terrace reserve, just because of finances, and that is all I can afford when I'm bringing the family. Usually buy them through stubhub."
Yet, you can afford to go to game 6 of the NLCS? Did you quit buying meth during the playoffs so you could watch the Cardinals? Or are you a dealer, and meth sales were up during playoff time?
Here is what you first said,
"Then there was the play at first where the Cardinals former first baseman, Albert Pujols, jammed his wrist / hand and is rolling around on the ground. No exaggeration, probably half the stadium was cheering at that moment, and then booing when he got back in the game. Probably was one of the loudest cheers from Brewers fans of the game other than some of the early home runs by brewers had made it close. No doubt the largest cheer from the brewers fans from the 3rd inning on."
Then the video of the play got posted and you said this,
"Yes, reaction cheering for hopefully a safe call at first, then booing the umpire yes, then cheering again as Albert is rolling around on the ground. The initial play, crowd reaction yes was loud, booing was loud. Then the longer the injury situation seemed to go on, the cheering was definitely there, and it wasn't just a few.

I LOL at the production crew lowering the crowd noise. Nice conspiracy theory!
