Report: Police called after Texans fan harasses Matt Schaub at home
Texans fans are reportedly harassing Matt Schaub at his home. Which is sickening.
According to CBS Houston, Texans fans accosted Schaub at his home on Tuesday evening and "berated him for his poor play."
"A fan went to his house and told him off," a law enforcement source told CBS Houston.
Additionally the source told CBS Houston that another person "took pictures of his family." Thankfully those pictures weren't -- according to the report -- posted on Facebook or any social networks. According to the report it's believed that the fans "left on their own accord" and that "no arrests were made."
In all seriousness: football is a game, people. It's OK to get upset that your favorite team's quarterback is throwing interceptions that your opponents return for touchdowns. But going to a man's home and harassing him and his family?
That's a line you don't cross. Texans fans are generally perceived as smart, caring football fans. It's probably a case of a few bad apples here. But that doesn't make what happened -- assuming it went down the way the report indicates -- any less repugnant.
