Is it horrible to want some proof? I dunno. I’ve probably been to 200 games at Fenway in my life. Never heard a slur yelled at a player. https://t.co/Nq29ijPrzy

If you know me & BC, you know that I’m not usually pro-Bromani Jones. His radio show is horrible and his constant fights on Twitter got to the point where I had to unfollow because it was the same thing day after day.
So it might come as a shock that I’d agree with Bromani on what went down today on Boston homer Albert Breer’s Twitter account re: Adam Jones saying he was taunted throughout Monday’s game by Red Sox fans who used a variety of racial taunts towards the black outfielder.
Albert wants proof it happened. He clearly isn’t taking Jones at his word. Not even after Red Sox pitcher David Price said IN 2016(!) that he’s been subjected to taunts — and he pitches for the team!!
“I got it all,” Price said. “It’s all right. I don’t care about that. My mom is white and my dad is black. I’ve heard that since I’ve been in school. There’s nothing you can say to me that I haven’t heard before. Your ignorance is not going to affect what I’m trying to do. But I feel sad it’s still out there.”
Look, is it possible that Jones embellished a little bit? Of course. But to sit here and say you need evidence seems rather blind to how fans, especially in bleachers operate.
@AlbertBreer i don’t think you’re dumb. just remarkably defensive on this topic, to the point of saying you’ve NEVER seen racism in boston.

You find a target, you attack. Surrounded by bros? Let it fly. That’s why packs of bros sit in those seats, Al. This isn’t something new. Al’s over here acting like this couldn’t possibly happen in Boston because it’s such a progressive town where people care about each other and vote Democrat.
Of course Al is digging in. He’s now RTing the hate to play the heel card. It’s too late, he’s now all-in on this one because if he backs out now all his Boston street cred flies right out the window.
The Red Sox say 34 people were ejected from Monday’s game. By comparison, there were 49 ejections this past season at the Minnesota-Wisconsin football game — a 2:30 CT kickoff where attendance was somewhere in the 80,000 range. There were 33,489 last night at Fenway.
