Fan keys Oregon State player's car

Earlier today I wrote about another injury that Oregon State has suffered this season, as the school announced on Monday that defensive tackle Castro Masaniai's season is over thanks to a broken fibula. Well, it seems that the injuries Oregon State is suffering this year are not limited to just the players.

Following Oregon State's latest loss against BYU, a loss that made the Beavers 1-5 on the season, a frustrated fan took his frustration out on the car of cornerback Jordan Poyer. According to The Oregonian, Poyer had his car keyed and was also the recipient of a nasty message.
[Head coach Mike]Riley said he can understand fans being frustrated with what is happening on the field – OSU has lost 7 out of its last 8 games and 9 out of its last 11 going back to last season – but Riley can’t understand fans being frustrated to the point where they would “key’’ a players’ car and leave a nasty anonymous note on the windshield.
While doing this to a player's car is taking things a few miles too far to begin with, adding insult to injury, Poyer actually had a good game on Saturday night. Poyer had 4 tackles, broke up 2 passes and even returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown in the game. 

As you'd expect, Poyer wasn't exactly thrilled with the development, and took to Twitter to address the vandal.

“To whoever keyed my car last night saying ‘(bleep) you win a game’ I hope you’re feeling better about yourself," tweeted Poyer.
