Yesterday’s FA Cup match between Eastleigh and Bolton featured a pitch invader on a mission—one that, despite his obvious interference, didn’t manage to stop play. The referee gave the advantage, and the Idiot On The Field fell on his ass.
Antone Exum Jr. is known for being a helpful guy, and his spirit got the best of him today in Oakland when a fan ran onto the field and got taken down by the Vikings defensive back.
We’ve seen it all. Here are two protesters from We Are Cove Point rappelling from the Panthers’ stadium to hang a banner reading “BOA Dump Dominion.” And unlike most Idiots On The Field, ESPN actually aired them!
A lot of idiots have made their appearances at RFK Stadium, but it was one Idiot whose pitch invasion interrupted today’s D.C. United-New York Red Bulls and led to the hooligan getting sacked—in the American football sense of the term.
The only thing more stereotypically Russian than the urge to sprint out onto the pitch in celebration of your team scoring is successfully fleeing back into the crowd before security apprehends you. Shouts out to the crowd for their teamwork. (Warning: video’s kinda loud.)
Obviously, don’t charge onto the field. It disrupts the game, and you’re going to get hit with trespassing and a lifetime ban. But if you charge onto the field, definitely don’t try to assault the security members who drag you out. They’re not going to let that one go.
Some drunk asshole ran onto the field during yesterday’s Eagles loss to Dallas. Philly CB Nolan Carroll took him down. The video from NBC DFW photojournalist Noah Bullard:
Dumbasses trying to make scripted grappling “real to them” have increased their attempts to invade the pro wrestling ring, and one such Idiot made it in as a pretend secret guest on tonight’s WWE pay-per-view (the real secret: Chris Jericho). His reward? The usual: getting sacked by WWE security.
It’s a miracle, given the proximity to and fanatical attitudes of fans at live wrestling events, that Idiots On The Field don’t turn up more often. But it happened tonight in Baltimore, as someone invaded the set and actually managed to hang around a bit during Seth Rollins’s ring entrance on WWE Raw.
You’d think the ref would have more respect for this fed up keeper who hunts down a pitch invader, grabs him by the back of the shirt, and marches him off the field like a put-upon teacher escorting an unruly student to the principal’s office, but instead of thanks, Mohamed Sokhra only received a red card for his…
Newsflash, buddy: you aren’t people. And soccer’s for people, not dogs.
Il est une tradition à nulle autre pareille.
It could have been the perfect crime. Justin Buchanan, 19, dashed onto the field at last night’s Cubs-Reds game (while filming himself the entire way), tried to say hi to Billy Hamilton, tossed his phone onto the grass over the centerfield wall, hopped the fence, clambered up into the seats, and disappeared into the…
San Jose Earthquakes mascot Q is no stranger to fighting with opponents, and (his?) attempt to tackle an Idiot On The Field after tonight’s International Champions Cup match against Club América earned some pushing and shoving from the Liga MX side’s players who didn’t take kindly to his treatment of the hooligan.…
Sunday’s Mariners-Angels game featured an Idiot on the Field who lasted quite a while. The shirtless guy made it from center field to the pitcher’s mound and even pretended to throw a pitch. Security eventually corralled him near the dugout.
A presumably Armenian Idiot invaded the pitch during the first half of today’s Euro 2016 qualifier and, unlike American Idiots On The Field, actually earned some decent attention and play-by-play from ESPN’s announcing team.
The typically mild-mannered and milquetoast Roger Federer had a bone to pick Sunday after a fan approached the tennis star seeking a selfie on court after Federer’s match at the French Open.
Riots delayed yet another major soccer match this weekend as the second Liguilla leg of Atlas vs Guadalajara was delayed 15 minutes for fans running onto the field, attempting to attack Chivas players and the referee, and committing violence in the stands.
UFC is busy right now with Fight Night in the Philippines, but one security member at today’s rugby match between Grenoble and Toulouse showed he had the MMA moves as he does a somersault takedown of an Idiot On The Field dressed like Superman.
