As an actual Heat fan, I applaud the efforts of our fair weather breed or otherwise in their hatred of the barkley. the fat old man had it coming. and then he's all "don't make me come down there!" after getting hit with a t-shirt. go for it charles, they would love to get you fired from tnt.

charles has his erudite moments (saying as a black man, he cannot discriminate against people, when he came out in favor of gay marriage). but he's been talking crap about the heat all year. this is what happened. big deal.

It's distasteful but no where near the most classless thing a fanbase has done. There's been way worse events. Heat fans don't like Chuck because he's talked smack about not only the Heat team, but the Heat FANS all season long, calling them fairweather, poking at how their stadium isn't full when games start, etc. Of course that will offend people who have been fans of the team for loner then the 10 months Lebron's been on the team.

The majority of the people (and what you could hear on the live TNT brodcast post-game) was "Barkely sucks". You can still hear it in the video. The people making the youtube video were chanting "**** you Chuck", which wasn't the majority.

05-24-2011, 05:05 PM
I don't mind the fans chanting "barkley sucks" or "**** you chuck" as much as others do. It was classless, but it wasn't terrible in my opinion. Barkley has been talking trash about the heat all year. He mocks the fan base, calls lebron a punk, and among other things. That does not justify it though. The throwing of the towe for me was much, much worse.. You never ever throw anything especially during a live broadcast. That part was classless, however that was one individual fan who should not define the whole fan base.

daleja424
05-24-2011, 05:09 PM
some of you are such haters. do you really have ANY idea whaat you are talking about. If you want to be educated on why Miami fans hate barkley I suggest you read the following article: http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports/columnists/hyde/blog/2011/05/heres_why_heat_fans_hate_tnts_1.html

That provides some background as to why HEAT fans gave Chuck a hard time.

That being said, I do not think a towel should have been thrown at Chuck... but the fact that some of you are sitting in here bashing HEAT fans without any background information on the story is pretty pathetic.

When HEAT fans come late to the game and lack passion... you make fun of HEAT fans. When HEAT fans stand up for their team and show a ton of passion and loyalty...you bash HEAT fans. Biased much?

Specifically the part where NO ONE ATTEMPTED to read the whole article. Funny how things like this work yet people only care when it is there fan base.

This is the NBA forum don't expect people to be smart enough to read more then a paragraph of an article.

It's simple...misery needs company. Most of the people on here that are bashing an entire HEAT fanbase for a couple of fans acting like idiots are just dissapointed their teams aren't in the playoffs or they're about to get eliminated.

Because he has been ****ing with HEAT all year long including taking frequent shots at it's fanbase. You are a certified HEAT (just like chuck) who NEVER has anything positive about the HEAT in his posts. So you will always support something that goes against the HEAT or it's fanbase.

Barkley is a person who I find impossible to hate.

Even when he said my sixers were, and i quote, "a middle school team going against varsity and there ain't no way in hell they're gonna win a game against the heat," I took it in good fun because that's just Charles being Charles.

He has his opinions, but no need for all that.
