N. Collins got into a dispute with a Chicago fan after the fan allegedly used a racial slur against Collins.

In a rather disgusting incident, Packers S Nick Collins, in the moments after Green Bay took a disappointing loss to the Bears on Monday Night Football, got into a confrontation with a Chicago fan.

Will got into it in this post, and as seen in this video on SPORTSbyBROOKS.com, Collins can be seen yelling and chucking his mouth guard into the stands.

He might have had a good reason to be upset.

Apparently, a Bears fan hurled the N-word slur at Collins and spit at him, hitting Collins in the face as he tried to give away his gloves to a Packers fan. Predictably – and understandably – that pissed off Collins. Now, as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes, the NFL is looking into the incident.

"I was made aware of it by our security department," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "I have not seen the video. I know the NFL is looking into the matter. I understand Nick's story as far as what happened and what our security people that were there, and I support Nick 100 percent.”

These kinds of fans strike me as cowards of the highest order. Yeah, he could spit at Collins and use a racial epithet against him, because he was in the stands, about 10 feet above Collins.

But do you think if the fan met Collins on Lakeshore Drive, he’d have anything but nice things to say to Collins? It’d be something like, “Wow, Mr. Collins, it sure is great to meet you. I’m a big fan.”

There’d be no N-word, because the fan wouldn’t have a barrier protecting him from what I assume would be an angry, angry NFL player. A coward, I tell you.

Jmajik, you're right and wrong.  Moss sprayed a ref, but he was fined $40,000.

No, it was reduced to $25,000

Thanks for the cite.  This blog post was different from the post I read the day before.  I just don't find defensiveness about a post or being negative toward other posters terribly helpful or constructive.  The cite here is good, though.

Discerning, if you need more evidence about the spitting besides what is in this blog, here you go (from article on Sportsline this morning):

"Collins was walking toward the locker room when he stopped and got into a shouting match with a fan. Milwaukee's WITI-TV captured video of the incident, reporting that the fan spit on Collins and used a racial slur"

So you can see, I did not make up the spitting part of this.

From the article you are posting to:

"Apparently, a Bears fan hurled the N-word slur at Collins and spit at him, hitting Collins in the face"

Next time, please read carefully before responding.

Oh yes, thanks for the negative reviews too, always a classy thing to do when you don't agree with someone else.

I totally agree. Both individuals were wrong with how they acted. Players in the NFL are the role models of our children. I rather have my kid walk away than end up repeating Collins action over and over through out his life. He would end up in jail. With that said so should the abusive fan. Let him sit in the tank for a day or two. Better yet send him to Green Bay and have him hang out in their county jail. I'm sure he'll have plenty of company with other folks who have similar self restraint issues.

 

I'm embarrassed to call my self a Bears fan but I am and always will be. All we can do is hope that next time someone is about to do something stupid at a game we can help them make a better choice.

Go Bears,
Rigamozone
