I didn't know that FCB lost enough weight to fit into that Red suit. :cool:

Would there ever be a scenario where a player would be charged/sued/scorned for taking down a fan too hard...not that it applies here of course.

15 yard penalty for tripping and a automatic 1st down.

People have been sued for less. I wouldn't encourage players to do that simply because of litigious people.

Tripping is better than tasing the fan.

Best part of that video is the security guy who completely wipes out at the beginning. He just bites it, with a nice face plant at the end of his fall.

2nd would-be tackler showed some nice closing speed but couldn't quite get there to make the shoe string tackle.

Solid tackle by the 3rd security guy.

Whoever the broadcaster on the MLB.com video was said that police were no longer allowed on the field after the tazing incident. Really?

Hey...how about those fans in the left field seats applauding Diaz? The tip of the hat was pretty cool, too. Now that's baseball...

I gotta think players have talked about this and thought about what they'd do.

It was such a neat little move where Diaz just trotted up behind the guy and, whoopsy, gave him a little trip. He didn't go all Jack Tatum on him and level the guy with a flying forearm. Just a little doink and down he goes without a lot of risk to Diaz.
