Rugby Streaker Tackles Samoan Player During Match in New Zealand

Yes, you read that right, the shorts-wearing streaker grabbed and tackled a Samoan rugby player during a match this past week. Using these guys are just out for a drunken run across the field and a chance to delight the crowd as they run away from overweight security guards. But not this time. We are starting to see something new here friends: fans running out onto the field to attack opposing players. And security forces don’t seem able to stop it.

Is it part of our “I’m famous because I was on TV for five seconds” culture, or is fan angry getting so ratcheted up that we can’t tell the difference between being FOR our team and AGAINST their rivals?
