Wild Fan Possible Lawsuit? How would you react?



I'm just curious as to how people would react to this. Would you go through legal action against the player or league?

Free season tickets for the rest of my life plus $1m USD and I'd sign an agreement to not sue nor to talk to the media any further.

BTW, that smile says "I'm getting paid, *****!"

If he plans on pressing charges, this will not help his case. The defense will use it to tear his creditbility and character to shreds.

I'm really not sure how much of a case he has, although I don't really have any type of legal experience besides a Basic Law class. But Rypien let him go, and he admitted he wasn't hurt, and he was only startled...which won't do much for an "emotional harm" plea in court. Honestly I think the ones who are most at fault here is the Wild organization for having such low barricades where those fans were sitting.

I could see where he could've been startled, but harmed, scarred, or even traumatized by what happened? He was grabbed for half a second, and really didn't even get pulled over very far if at all. Looks more like he got pushed...the kid was talking like he almost got dragged over by his collar...



I mean...he wasn't beaten with his own shoe or anything...

It's pretty obvious he is hoping for some money or free tickets or something.

I wouldn't expect the money... I'd be happy with the tickets.

The NHL and the Canucks would probably swallow most of the expense of comping the tickets. The Wild wouldn't have to pay for much at all.

I don't know what I would do but I think I would just ask for an apology to be honest. Unless the guy injured me.

If he gets emotionally hurt and scared etc from that, he's got far bigger issues than winning a bag of money in a law suit.

I would like to sue HF for letting this stupid thread get started. Teach the kid right and just walk away. Is this the mentality that people really have? You talk smack on the street and you get your a$$ beat, you want to play, you gotta pay. It is like the tough internet guy, talk smack but in reality they would never be so bold, the anonymity makes people feel safe.

I can see why he'd do it. Just not a fan of the legal culture we live in. Which is ironic because I'm applying for law school...

Except in real life you can't hit people either. I'm sure it feels nice to be the tough guy and think you are the man, but really, the other guy is going to laugh all the way to the courtroom (and bank). Simple as that.

Does the internet pick on you so much you want to hit people?

After having watched the video interview, I actually think he came off as being pretty level-headed. He didn't complain about any long-lasting personal effects, inability to do his job, neck injuries, etc., that would set him up for a major lawsuit against Rypien. A lot of what he said was probably what would have been going through my mind.

Was it determined what this guy said or did that set off Rypien? He didn't seem to throw anything or make any other gesture that would have had Rypien acting in self-defense. As for what he said, professional athletes should be able to shake off most anything that is yelled at them. I'd venture a guess that this guy had been giving it to the Canucks before this incident, given his proximity to the bench. Rypien lunged at him even before walking down the corridor. I think Rypien is completely in the wrong, though the harm is pretty minimal; however, player-on-fan attacks, even this minor, can't be ignored by the sports association.

Were it me, season tickets would be nice and an apology, and I'd ask Rypien to donate whatever amount he wanted to a Wild charity.

It's certainly not anonymous for me.

That's by far the best response I've heard yet. I like that idea.

The Wild organization was supposed to pull the cover out over the tunnel that would prevent this kind of thing from happening. They obviously didn't.
