Student section disappointing

Observer Viewpoint | Thursday, January 29, 2004

After attending the game tonight against Miami, we would just like to say how ashamed we were of the student section. We were appalled that the students booed Chris Thomas, a player on our team, as he reentered the game. The treatment he received from the student section, especially during the second half of the game, was worse than anything dished out to the Miami players. We’re pretty sure that he was wearing an Irish uniform, and yet the way he was treated you would have thought that he was wearing a Hurricane uniform. Even if Thomas was having a bad game, he is still on our team, and yelling things like “airball” when he misses a shot and booing him are not supportive. The entire team needs to know that we’re behind them 100 percent of the time, not just when they’re playing well.
