Sad: 2 Fans Killed In Dispute Over LSU/Alabama Football Game

Honestly it wasn’t supposed to be LSU/Alabama day around here.

Just turned out that way.

And took a sad turn when we came across a nugget of news out of southern Alabama where an argument over the game took a tragic turn as an Alabama fan is accused of blasting two LSU fans.

Dead. Murder charges reports the Mobile Press-Register.

Investigators said witnesses told them that Dennis Smith, an LSU fan, called Williams, a fan of the Crimson Tide, after the game Saturday evening and an argument ensued.

Soon, the Smiths arrived at Williams’ home and the men wound up in a physical altercation, officers said.

Smith retrieved a pistol from his vehicle, and threatened Williams, who armed himself with a shotgun and fired two blasts, striking and killing Dennis Smith, officers said.

The wife of Dennis Smith was killed after she threatened the Alabama fan. Not surprisingly alcohol is said to be a factor in the murders.

We’ve never stepped on the soil of Alabama or Louisiana so we have no way of really understanding these people.

It might be time for SEC fans to chill. Burning effigy’s, calling coaches Satan, fans killing fans, etc. is not exactly becoming of a proud conference.

We’re all for drinking some beer and acting silly, maybe a little trash talk.

Anyone else think things have gone a little too far when fans are killing fans?

      I would put the initial blame on the LSU fans. If you live in the SEC states, you would know that LSU fans are the worst in the conference. The are mean and very rude. I've heard so many horror stories about LSU fans. I can attest to the 2006 UA/LSU game in LR in 2006. Before the game, LSU fans where drunk and kicking over signs, banners, icechests, etc. They continued this tyrad afterwards even though they won. LSU fans are tasteless.

    2. Such a tragedy having two people killed because of an argument over a football game.

      i find this very SAD as well as uncalled for. . . . football is about trash talking and having fun but it should never be about taking a human life. . . .are you sure that this wasn't a bet gone bad and the guy went to go and pick up his money and all HELL broke loose. . . .it's ridiculous anyway you look at it because 3 lives have been forever destroyed. . . .my prayers go out to the families

      To the Hog Fan…while you may base your opinion on one experience at home in 2006 and on what you have heard, i have experienced many many many LSU ballgames first hand. And believe me, there are drunks at any game, usually kids, usually students, but there is the occasional grown drunkard. But every time I go to a game, I always ask the visiting fans, "How are they treating you?" And never ONCE have I ever had anyone say anything negative about true LSU fans…the ones that have been there throughout the good and bad, not just the crazy 18 year old students. The Georgia fans we met 2 weeks ago at the game said they had heard nothing but bad things about us and were scared at first, but then were so pleasantly surprised at the hospitality and the friendliness of the fans. You might get called "Tigah Bait" – which will happen anywhere – but you'll get some gumbo and a beer…unless you're an a**hole back. There are good and bad fans everywhere…even Arkansas. I was there when theybeat us last year…you have your share of d*ckheads.

      I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SAY TO SOMETHING BECAUSE I'M FROM THIS AREA AND THE LOCAL NEWS REPORTER SHOULD LOSE THEIR JOB FOR MISINFORMING THE PUBLIC! MY HUSBAND HAS A FRIEND WHO PERSONALLY KNOWS THE GUY WHO SHOT THESE PEOPLE! IT WAS A DOMESTIC DISPUTE IT HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FOOTBALL GAME! THERE HAD BEEN BAD BLOOD BETWEEN THE TWO FOR AWHILE! IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT THE GAME WAS BEING PLAYED THIS SAME DAY! YES, THE GUY THAT GOT SHOT(BAMA FAN) CALLED THE SHOOTER(LSU FAN) AND PROBABLY SAID SOME THING HE SHOULDN'T HAVE SAID! HE GOT SHOT AND SO DID IS WIFE! LIKE I SAID THIS WAS ONGOING AND WAS NOT ENTIRELY OVER THE FOOTBALL GAME! I WISH THE MEDIA WOULD GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT FIRST AND IGNORANT PEOPLE WOULDN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY READ!
