Riot control in Madison, Wisconsin.

"After the pushing and shoving that marred the 2014 celebration with Paul Bunyan's Axe, Badgers coach Gary Andersen outlines policies that will be put in place Saturday for the celebration that will occur after the losing team leaves the field."

Did anybody get hurt? How about we accept that a little pushing and shoving is part of the event? Enthusiasm is not a bad thing.

As an alternative, I suggest we cancel all physical activity and place everyone in individual padded bubbles and sedate them heavily with Ritalin.

Did anybody get hurt?

More people are hurt at football games than were harmed during the recall protests, yet those protesters were labeled as violent rioters by the Althouse crowd.

Apples and oranges, madisonfella. It's not a math equation.

It isn't math, it is politics.

When the assholes on the other side get rowdy then it is a riot. When the assholes you agree with get worked up then it is a celebration.

madisonfella, you are a riot.

By your idiotic logic Penguin, if I came to Madison, and kicked the living shit out of you, that would be okay because it's less than get hurt at a football game.

What a moron.

In other news, Andersen announced all players will be awarded an "Axe of Participation" award during a post-game ceremony.

You're players are adults, not kindergarteners, right coach?

We really, really need Minnesota to beat Wisconsin. That's the word from my TCU fan, because of "strength of schedule" angles in the National playoffs selection system. TCU beat Minnesota easily.

On Minnesota.

Anybody who gets hurt wrestling for Paul Bunyan's axe is axing for it!

They were running around yelling "No Justice, No Meade!"? Disgraceful!

The winner gets to get stomped by Ohio State.

If there's one thing we know it's: All the assholes are over on the other side.

Oh, those crazy white people.

By the way, does anyone have a citation to back up the notion that protesters "were labeled as violent rioters by the Althouse crowd?"

I wasn't around for most of that party, so I'm curious if the reaction was really that severe.

Is Marquette's football team still in it?

The winner gets to lose to Ohio State.

Ohio State has been beating themselves almost as much as the other team the past few weeks.

garage mahal said...

Ohio State beat Minnesota by a touchdown two weeks ago.
