Punishment For Fans Who Run On The Field [POLL]

If you’ve ever run on the field during a sporting event you weren’t actively participating in, you’re a damn fool.  And you deserved whatever the punishment was – whatever fine and every single minute of jail time you were handed.

If Baltimore Oriole Adam Jones had his way, though, you’d have gotten a hell of a lot more than that. “They should let us have a shot to kick them with our metal spikes on,” the outfielder said, later commenting that the police should bring tasers into the mix.

Is Jones’ opinion extreme?  Perhaps.  It seems a touch strong to suggest a nine-on-one gang beating for some drunk fool who stumbled his way onto the field for a few seconds of ill-advised fame.

Then again, if you don’t want Adam Jones’ metal cleats in your eye, you probably should have listened to stadium security, not jumped the big wall, and stayed away from his outfield.  That seems like a you problem – especially when considering the random acts of violence players have been the victims of in the past and need, at times, to protect themselves from.

So maybe Jones has a point.  Should the punishments be harsher?  Take our poll and let us know what you think.  Beware, though, one of our suggestions – particularly that last one – are gruesome.
