Just reading the Rider fan forum with a new post topic being the recent news from a mother attending the Banjo Bowl with her 9 year old son . I presume most of us have now heard this story . Briefly a mother and son attended the game cheering on the Blue , the son wearing his Bomber shirt . The child became cold and put on a green sweater . Towards the end of the game this 9 year old had beer poured on him , insults directed his way and towards his mother when she intervened in protecting her son . Apparently the boy became frightened for his safety . I do find this behavior directed towards the boy and mother quite sickening and deplorable and is not reflective of any Bomber fan I want to be associated with . In fact I truly hope these culprits are identified and dealt with by the authorities . However most of the Rider fans on their site have now used this piece to further denigrate and insult all Blue fans and the entire city of Winnipeg using highly provocative and inflammatory words . This appears a big deal to these Rider fans as if this type of disgusting behavior only occurs in Winnipeg . It sadly happens in Regina as well . In fact there are idiots in all cities of the CFL . This new post on the Rider site again reflects the frustration , anger and yes jealousy of the Winnipeg Football Club and the success the Blue are having in relation to the quite pathetic season the Riders are again experiencing . This post reflects a diversion for these Rider fans , an opportunity to lash out at something , to be highly critical and sanctimonious of someone else rather than having to think about their own team circumstances . Although this is another symptom of losing for Sask fans , one cannot help but feel sorrow for the mom and son and embarrassed to be a Blue fan .
