They started off in the lower level but people were throwing garbage at them.

Does anyone know the validity of this? If true, shows the class of their fans. You would imagine that under that situation you could do better to accommodate the family of a player.

If that's true, then that's sad.

3rd string QB's parents get trash thrown at them. Classy.

They only had 40,000 people in attendance. Apparently tickets must have been scalped at like $5 apiece for that kind of lowlife to get into the game and throw trash at a player's family.

After being focused on so much during the broadcast, they are almost guaranteed private box seats from here on out.

Out of sight, out of mind, ya know. ;)

throwing trash on the ground is called recycling in cincy...

I don't know if it's true, but I wouldn't be surprised. Ohio State fans throw bottles at the opposing team's fans all the time. I've heard more stories about it than I could count.

This is coming from the native state of people who enjoy getting it on with lawn furniture.

I could be wrong but my interpretation of the smiley face after the comment as it appears on their board indicates the poster was being sarcastic.

I saw that post too but it was obvious sarcasm. They got bad seats but eventually moved down a few rows.

Nothing like selling half the seats necessary for the hometown to even get to watch the game. Then blowing hard enough to give Bill Clinton the chills.

Frankly, no one can fault the Bengals for exercising a little caution when a woman named Yates from Houston asks to be closer to her kids. (Edit comment)

That's not true. We're crappy fans who name call and taunt and yell and scream and set couches on fire, but I think saying thrown bottles is common place is unfair.

FACT!!!

Went to Cincy several years ago. We had front row seats in the corner near the visiting team tunnel. We were pelted with ice cubes and other garbage the entire time.

"Common place" is a broad term, so I'll backpedal on implying that, but I will say it has happened frequently in the past.

When I was at UT, I heard many stories by other students who got hit by bottles at the Horseshoe. I've heard the same thing from my Michigan friends who went to rivalry games, and I've even heard it from a couple of my customers. I've met many Ohians who do well to counter that image, like you or my friend's fiancee, but the bad apples among that fanbase are establishing a reputation.
