These Calgary Flames Fans Were So Lucky There Was Glass Separating Them And Drew Doughty

There are only 3 definite things in this game that we call life. 1) Death. 2) Taxes. 3) Home fans with glass seats flipping off the opposing team players whenever they score overtime goals.

We saw it on Monday in Calgary after Jack Eichel scored the overtime game winner against the Flames.

We saw it last night in Chicago after William Nylander scored the overtime game winner against the Blackhawks.

And then we saw it again in Calgary last night after Drew Doughty set up this Tanner Pearson overtime game winner against the Flames.

Whoever this fan is down in that bottom right corner should be thanking whatever god they believe in that there’s a pane of glass keeping Drew Doughty away from tearing his face to pieces.

Which brings me to my next point. I don’t think I’m the first person to come up with this idea and I certainly won’t be the last. But I wholeheartedly believe that professional athletes should be allowed to beat up one fan per year. Fans today have this false sense of invincibility. Like they can do or say whatever they want to these athletes without repercussions. And for the most part, they can. There’s no threat of an enforcer coming up into the stands and beating their ass. I just think that needs to change. You give them one free pass per year to let loose and after that, they just need to suck it up and deal with getting flipped the bird. But if Drew Doughty wants to dummy this fan and force him to eat through a straw for the next 2-3 months, then he should have that right. As should every other professional athlete. But only once a year or else shit would get real out of hand, real fast.
