I have no issue what Marcus Peters did. Maybe, just maybe, this trend of professional athletes giving it back to those with mouthes that are made much bigger than their britches by some false idea that with their ticket comes some aura of invincibility will result in enough soiled undergarments to get said fans to wipe clean their tongue. I mean, probably not, but if the Rams' enigmatic corner contributed even a little to the humbling and silencing of stupidly outspoken fans then I can pick up what he was putting down.
That said, I'm not quite willing to look all the way past the fact that it was Marcus Peters who did it. We are talking about a player who, over the last two years, has made waves for all the wrong reasons as someone who's gotten run out of one city and underwhelmed in another as he's been aggressive in just about everything other than his play...
To be clear, I don't think even the worst of performances give hypocritical hecklers the moral high ground. That dude earned the entirety of his emasculation. I do, however, think the juxtaposition of running up right in the face of fans that don't know their place while being the type of defensive player who won't offer so much as a single hand in shutting down a red-zone rushing attempt is a bit ironic.
After all, if talking it only as you walk it is Marcus Peters' prerogative then he would have answered to every postgame interview in sign language this season, because he's been roasted six ways to Sunday on damn near a weekly basis. Point being, by my count, there were two voices in that video that didn't keep that same energy in the face of adversity yesterday. Even if one was undoubtedly far less tough than he talked and far more guilty of speaking out of turn in bringing unnecessary adversity upon himself.
