It can't really be called celebrating; instead it was a riot not much terrorism. A lot of those so called fans should be arrested and put away for a long time in addition to having to pay for the damages. The NCAA needs to take steps to stop such things. They should take the title away and ban the school from competing for the title for five years. That would send a message to all schools that such lawlessness and disregard for the safety and property of others will not be tolerated. Such things did not happen when I was in college. During that time we won a couple of national football titles and there were no riots.

Well there are fans, then there are fanatics, then there are people who take their sports teams way too seriously and there are people like these. People who take the victory(or even loss) of any team as a cause to raise a lot of havoc to say the very least. It is rather absolutely insane to think that people like this could rather go to this extent. The thing is, these things always have happened. And just imagine the scene if they had lost. It would have been a different kind of riot, and I rather shudder to think how things might have gotten even worse. Then again there are just many people who take things many, many steps beyond what should really be considered to be mentally sane and stable. It is awful but its too commonplace. And it is just going to get worse unless something is done.

When a team win ,people are happy, sometimes I think I am polite ,and only congratulation,and bless,,but now I think over, I am not truely fans . So sometimes fans are very puzzle atmosphere. We should think more about different fans. Fans are crazy ,so when fans team win, some fans are man and full of energy ,kick the fence like kick the ball, beat they sand bag.And even disobey the rule to jump off the platform.I think the police will guard seriously. Of course the fierce violent is not good, maybe beside police also need culture shining to be gentle. It is sure where your university wink matches ,there are no riots ,that mean your fans are truly passion, lovely ,roylty fans.

In my opinion even though you are celebrating that doesn't mean you go over board and not be responsible for your actions, every needs to be accounted for whatever is going on in the world so this maybe sad but people needs to be put in justice for doing what they did so that these actions will not be copied by other spectators of the sport.

stealthy that was bad enough but remember back a few years when my Lakers won the series and then people including some of the Lakers started a riot upsetting cars and setting some on fairs.to me that was not celebrating winning the series that was hoodlum and in te NBA the top team too. I felt really angry and sickened at that. imagine being in a car and hoodlums trying to upset it in the guise of celebrating a big win like that, made no sense and was just plain criminal.Fans perhaps are fanned by large numbers of others bent on criminal activity and just followed the leader but it was a sad day for Los Angeles for sure.
