I've watched over the last 25 years professional and collegiate sports degrade in sportsmanship and profesionalism. In the past the major sports associations have been a joke regarding suspensions, fines, etc for reprehensible player behavior. It appears that that line has finally been crossed that the trend must be reversed. Kudos to Stern for suspending that thug Ron Artest for the season (hopefully the Oakland County District Attorney files criminal charges against him and the other participants in Friday's melee).
I hope all professionals in the sporting community take a look in the mirror and use this opportunity to reverse this poor sportsmanship trend. Would hate to not have my children not experience live sporting events due to such criminal behavior.
