The audio in this video speaks for itself. It;s not fan's who got pepper sprayed it's Fanokes. The youth in America are out of F'n control with no respect for societal norms. Their parents should have been pepper sprayed as well.

"Societal norms"? I guess you’re not familiar with the culture of Pacific Islanders. This was no different than a band, cheerleaders or mascots. This is a traditional war cry dance done as a performance. You can see this at rugby, football and soccer games, even at the pro level. Unless they were interfering with the game or someone in the stands, police should have just enjoyed the show like everyone else.

Some of you guys don't even know what you're talking about like james fitzpatrick. You are so wrong! BG your comment is okay but james you are so so so so so so so wrong. I was in town at that moment and it was horrible. I don't think that the officer is much experienced.
