    During the Kansas loss just now, they kept showing a Kansas kid fan crying. Personally, I think it is horrible to show that on TV. He's a kid. He could get made fun of back in school. Just seems low.

    They caught him crying once then they showed him a few more times after he had quit. Yes I thought it was kind of funny but I think picking on a kid like that is pretty low, IMO. He had friends probably watching on TV so I'm sure they won't let him forget.

    I kinda agree. Only people that should be shown crying are the college age super fans that go to the game with crazy hats and painted faces. Not 5th graders that will be, like you said, made fun of next week at school.

    Thank you.

    I'm not interested in anyone in the crowd. Period.

    wait for GIFs of that to be all over the internet, and used by people trolling Kansas boards.

    Except hot chicks taking selfies. That's acceptable.

    Once they showed he was sitting next to someone who looked sort of like curly-haired girl.

    Well judging by how fans always make fun of our crying kids it will be nice for another team to get the cry baby things now

    You must enjoy "One Shining Moment". No crowd shots in that at all.:rolleyes:

    One shining moment sucks. I'd like to see all the amazing plays. Not some preppy cheerleading waving her pompoms.

    Pretty low to keep showing that kid. I didn't like it one bit.

    Unfortunately he he is most likely going to have a rough couple weeks at school.

    I agree I don't think the should show kids crying. It isn't even that I feel he will be mad fun of (which he probably will be) but he might be embrassed and it will be on youtube.
