I was at first ready to simply dismiss Sean Ellis' "snowball" incident as a typical fan over reaction. However I saw a uTube shot of the incident and I have to say he COULD be in a little trouble here. Not from the league, because I think he already got fined or somehow admonished by the league when it happened. However if you get a chance to see it, you'll see what I mean.
I think the fan has some kind of case. In the shot you can see Ellis react to the fans throwing snowballs by picking up a huge block of snow. Its big and heavy enough that he has to bend his knees to get it up. Then he goes over to the stands and heaves into the first row.
It looked to me like the guy it hit tried to catch it, but it was heavy enough that weight of it just keeled him over backward into the next row of seats. I don't know if it was packed powder or frozen Ice, but when the guy caught it, it didn't break apart, so it was dense.
Again, Sean Ellis is probably my favorite Jet player now that Leon is gone, and I can somewhat understand why he responded, But the fact remaina, while fans can act like a$$holes, athletes have to be above retaliation. This is gong to cost him
