    Stay classy, Houston

    Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub reportedly accosted at his house by upset fans

    Whatever you might think about Matt Schaub as a quarterback, we should all agree that going to his house to accost him for poor play is absolutely unacceptable.

    The CBS affiliate in Houston via Sports Radio 610, citing a source close to law enforcement, said that upset fans showed up at Schaub's house to tell him off. The report said Houston Police Department was called by the NFL.

    No arrests were made, the CBS report said. The fans left on their own before police could respond. The report also said one fan took photos of Schaub's family.

    What would cause a person to believe that is OK?

    Schaub has struggled lately, throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown in a NFL record four straight games. Fans can pay their money and boo Schaub or go on social media or call a radio station to criticize him; that's just part of life as a NFL quarterback. Invading his privacy like that and posing a threat to him and his family is over the line and borderline insane.

    Hopefully this mess gives us some perspective. No matter the fame Schaub has or the money he makes, nobody deserves to have some lunatics show up at their house and berate them about their performance on a football field.
    And after Suckchez stole 50 mils for his unacceptable performance, some so-called journalists calling Jets fans and organization for "mistreating" him?

    so what you are saying is that "Sanchez lovers" should be happy no one showed up to his house with intent to harm him or his family as opposed to *****ing about him being treated badly by the fans and media? solid reasoning...

    As a Houston native, I'm embarrassed by my city.

    What a bunch of losers! It's just football you freaks. Yeah, it means a lot to me too, I bleed green, but seriously?! Mark Sanchez sucked donkey nuts last year but if I met him right now I'd shake his hand and take a picture with him.

    What's wrong with people?

    Well the CFL can one up that. A number of years ago the Saskatcehwan Roughriders had a really good kicker who happened to choke up in one playoff game and miss a 20 yarder or so in overtime and the lost. Some fans dumped a load of manure on his driveway the next day. Then of course you have soccer where players get killed for screwing up.

    Schaub was well within his rights to get a shotgun(if he had one) and basically tell those idiots to "GET OFF MY LAWN!".

    Dummies. Just boo him unmercifully at games and chant "FIRE KUBIAK". Ownership will get the message.

    Does that make what happened in Houston OK?

    It's way, way, way over the top. These guys are doing their jobs. Fans need to understand that sometimes they will have a "bad day" at work. It happens.

    Of course, that's just flat out trolling by d0uche Manish. He's an idiot.

    Schaub is saying no big deal, no one shouted obscenities at him. Maybe media trying a little hard here.
