I took my special-needs daughter to VPI game at Scott 2 years ago.


Mind you, I've taken her to UVA football, basketball, and baseball games all over. It's one of our things we do together.
Gobbler directly behind us repeatedly screamed obscenities at the top of his lungs, literally spit flying, about 12-18 inches behind her head. You know, one of the guys who spends more time cursing the other team, rather than rooting for his own. I respectfully asked him to tone it down just a little for the kids, and I got an obscene earful too as he continued. I switched places with my daughter to move her a few feet away, and I swear he started shouting (spit flying) his obscenities in her direction. After attending dozens of games with me in the past, she couldn't understand why this fan was so vile and mean-spirited, so foul and hateful and angry. She and I talked about it, and we stayed and actually we won the game. But I can't shake the way it made me feel toward that fanbase.

I've been to half a dozen games with her versus UNC, including at UNC. Never experienced anything close to that.
