For some strange reason we feel NFL czar Roger Goodell will have a memo released across the league outlawing throwing game-worn shoes into the stands after this horrific fan fall yesterday in St. Louis.
Well, lookey here, a video discovered by Busted Coverage shows Rams defensive tackle Clifton Ryan launching his shoes into the stands but one of the shoes landed on the tarp leading to the team locker tunnel.
This one doesn’t end well, people. Video after the jump.

Premise of Video: Fans were excited to see their Rams leave the field until July. DT Clifton Ryan, figuring he won’t need his game shoes again since he’ll probably be cut, launches his shoes into the stands. Ooops….one lands on that “not very secure” tarp covering the tunnel.
Climax of Video: The bodies landing on concrete in a fight over one of Ryan’s shoes.
Conclusion: Expect this to be the last time a player sends a piece of equipment into the crowd. The Rams say the guys are not seriously hurt.
