Crimson Tide Fan Hall Of Shame

Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Thanks, Roy, for your article on Dee Dee Bonner and Katharine Webb and their derogatory comments concerning Jameis Winston. A.J. McCarron is a first class person win or lose and it is too bad his reputation will be forever marred by his mother and girl friend's stupidity. Dee Dee and Katharine now enter the Crimson Tide Fan Hall of Shame along with the following:

Logan Young- Tide booster in Memphis convicted of racketeering in paying off Memphis High School coaches to direct players to the Tide 

Harvey Updyke- convicted of poisoning the trees at Toomer's Corner after Auburn's 2010 win. And he deserves special mention for calling into Paul Finebaum's show and admitting on air he had done it.

Brian Dowling- Tide fan convicted of performing a sex act in public on a passed out LSU fan after the Tide's win over the Tigers in the 2012 Sugar Bowl. 

Michelle Prichett- 40 year old woman caught on Video with her kids in the Dome who tried to kick an Oklahoma fan late in the Sugar Bowl. But according to Michelle even though she had a "couple," of drinks she wasn't drunk. She has apologized to Coach Saban though.

Adrian Laroze Briskey- charged with murder in the death of another Tide fan who committed the sin of, "not caring enough about Alabama." 

Come on Alabama fans you need to get a life. Every team has its obnoxious fans but murder, racketeering and felony sex acts are carrying it a little too far.

By the way, just for the record, Jameis Winston is from Bessemer, Ala. Guess they don't teach no good English composition in Alabama.
