John Franco and David Wells bring up GREAT points

John Franco was on OTL tonight and he brought up a GREAT point in defense of Francisco the chair thrower. He said that some of these fans bring media guides to the games and read the bio's of a player sitting in the bullpen seeing that they've got kids, a wife, etc. and then the fans start heckling a player about his kids or mother or something of that sort. I'm not saying throwing a chair at a womens face was an appropriate way to respond but he must have been REALLY pushed over the edge to do something like that. David Wells was also interviewed on OTL and he told a story about one time when he was sitting in the bullpen in Cleveland the day after his mother passed away and a fan was heckling him about his dead mother and David Wells said he almost broke down and can more than understand the actions of Francisco.

 

There's no way a player would just go absolutely crazy over normal heckling by fans, something VERY bad must have been said.

What a a***** Cleveland fan. Wells should have had him removed.

Sometimes fan gets out of control, it is up to a professional to be a good person about it and let it go to rest. I hated Wells on the White Sox, but recalling that story and having him eat his hat throughout makes him a good professional in my mind (not to mention that when he is not in a ball park he beats those types of people down)

considering how a's fans are, it most likely was justified

A's fans are idiotic a**holes.

being an idiotic a**hole is not against the law

I want to break a chair over your back and you didn't even call me stupid.

 

 

Francisco was wrong, but those acting like he's the only side that was wrong are fools.
