No one deserved that. Hit on the head, gets a concussion, and then told to suck it up? wow...

Wow...

Hope the young girl is okay. Forget being embarrassed as a Sharks fan, It's embarrassing for humanity when you hear stuff like this. "You're faking it"...wow...just...wow...

Absolutely disgusting. As a Sharks fan, hockey fan, and human being, I'm ashamed.

Since moving from Canada to California two years ago, her family and friends have raised thousands of dollars for tumor research through charity walks.
I emailed the author of this article and he replied that the charity in question is http://www.braintumor.org/

I dunno bout you but I'm sending a message on who's the real Sharks fan, and human being on this part of the world. I'm donating $10 to the fund in her honor. Its the least I can do to offset this...

I hope the sharks do something, like give her a autographed stick of a sharks player.

I know very well this happens all around the NHL, including all NHL arena's, does not change the fact it's pathetic.

Just brutal news, I hope she recovers fully.

This makes me depressed and angry at the same time.

No Sharks fan should feel ashamed of the actions of one idiot drunken woman except the drunken cow herself! Every fanbase has their nutjobs (some have more than their fair share ~ like the team I root for). Love watching Sharks/Nucks games - they are almost always fantastic games. Looking forward to more games between these two teams as the divisions are switched up!

I understand people are gonna get drunk and act retarded. But cmon. Hitting a girl like that? At the end of the day it's just a game that you watch. Don't bring physical violence into this. I'm really disgusted right now.

I wouldn't assume the worse, I'll give the woman the benefit of the doubt if she says its an accident. She was probably very drunk, which is the opposite of an excuse. But I'll wait to see if there's more response from her side without making complete judgement.

In any case, I really hope the Sharks organization does something about this, and something BIG, both in terms of preventing it from further happening and in helping the girl. I know trash talking is kind of part of the deal, but it legitimately appalls me that some sharks fans were as classless as this. Hopefully she recovers well, and this incident will help prevent further ones.

And if investigation points that she did do it purposefully, or with excessive recklessness, I hope she gets a lifetime ban from the tank.

I get drunk like once a week and I've never assaulted anyone, nor will i ever. I think the violence has more to do with the person than alcohol itself. This story is awful though, i hope the poor girl gets better soon.

i was wondering what the fire truck and ambulance was for on autumn street after the game. i thought it was for the kid who yacked and sprayed at least a row in front of him =x.

sadly i see this every once in a while walking to my car after a tough loss, especially in front of the Grill entrance. arrogance + alcohol is always a crap combination. tleve is right, there are always a few clowns out there in every fanbase and it sucks that it happened in our arena. you'd think a bay area sports fan would have learned something from the stow incident, sigh.

visiting fans are really nice people in my experience. it's good to see people who love watching their team as much as i do, and have the guts to wear their colors in our house. i hope we as a fanbase learn from this and raise awareness to call these clowns out. the last time i felt this ashamed was the edmonton game the anthem was booed, and it hurt more since i was there for it because it wasn't a few people, it was probably in the hundreds.

This is an unfortunate incident but if the woman really was falling-down drunk, it is quite possible this was an unintentional contact. Incidental contact, as it were. But that still makes the lady negligent and I believe by law she could be charged with assault.

I ****ing hate when fans attack/hurt each other
(whenever a fan is attacked and gets a head injury it reminds me of Brian Stow incident)

This is why alcohol should be banned from the games if you wanna get drunk and watch the game go to a bar and watch it or stay home

I hope she recovers and the Sharks do something special for her

Also thanks for the link Space I will donate $10

I will never understand getting that drunk at a game. How can you watch the puck or enjoy the game when you can't even stand up?

They should not ban alcohol from games. They should raise the prices.
Most arena's have terrible beer anyway. If someone wants to pay 15 bucks for a 12 ounce Bud they should be liberated of their money and dignity as quickly as possible.

This is terrible. But reading the article I don't think this woman was trying to "assault" the girl. It seems to me she got very excited by the goal and celebrated a bit too much, trying to tease the girl. You just never know the condition of who's next to you so people should keep their hands to themselves.

It reminds me of when I was about 19 in Boston and I took my 12 year old brother to a Bruins-Canadiens game, mid 80s I think, and he wore his Canadiens jersey. Now it's much more dangerous to wear opposing jerseys in Boston than in SJ, especially the Canadiens. I was not a Canadiens fan and at the beginning of the game I talked to everyone around us good-naturedly "apologizing" for my brother. He received some good-natured taps when Boston scored, but he just smiled & shrugged and that was that. He didn't have a brain tumor though.
