    Sheffield should NOT be suspended...

    no way. He did as well as you can expect under those circumstances.

    The beer-throwing fan in the Gap sweatshirt, however, needs to have his onions confiscated. Did you see him fall down trying to get away from the beer-soaked Sheffield?

    I don't even think he realized that guy threw a beer on him - which was obviously intentional. He was more worried about the guy that took a swipe at the ball. He shouldn't be suspended IMO.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    I agree no suspension is in order.

    However, no one threw beer. I watched the replay about a dozen times. Sheffield actually hits the beer cup sitting on the wall and it goes flying.

    By the way, I challenge anyone to find a news article that indicates beer was thrown. You can't.

    My take on this is that the beer was not really dumped or thrown, but I don't think Sheffield hit it either. I think he just spilled it. I will watch it on the TIVO tonight.

    He did run like a wus though.

    OK...let me go on...in my opinion this is further evidence of the "wussification" of America.

    A player gets testy and shoves a fan...big deal. I mean, really, is this such a big deal? No one got hurt. No flares were thrown on the heads of the players.

    Are we such wusses that every someone gets in someone's face over something it has to be big deal?

    There..I feel better.

    The Italians know how to do sports violence. We throw beer, they throw fire:

    Watching the replay, you can see the beer was not thrown. It was hit and thus spilled.

    I have heard several talk shows this morning and EVERYONE mentions a beer being intentionally dumped on Sheffield. Just sayin.

    Oh. I watched the live broadcast and they showed the replay about a hundred times. It looks to me like the beer was knocked over.

    Umm...in the picture you showed the beer is clearly in the hand of the fan. How is it possible for that beer to get hit sitting on a surface, jump into the fans hand and spill right onto the player?

    The replays I saw clearly showed the fan tossing his cup - whether intentional or not - he did spill his beer on him. IMO it was intentional.

    Sheffield knocked the guy/beer when he was going for the other guy, thus the beer spilled. I guess we can just agree to disagree. But I ask you again, find a news article saying a beer was intentionally spilled on Sheffield. You can't and you won't.

    Tony Kornheiser, my favorite sports guy, just said that he does not think the beer was intentionally thrown/dumped.

    I have seen the footage and I don't believe for one second Sheffield hit the cup though.
