Rogers' Outburst Very Different Than El Barba's

In regards to the incident that involved Rogers, there was a patron at Orlando jai Alai who was being verbally abusive towards the players. Each game it got worse and worse. The patron even called Ivan a monkey. For those that don't know Ivan has sort of a dark complexion. That could be considered hate speech depending on the environment where it is being said. Dave Catina came down and talked to the patron but it had no effect. Santi did not do anything about it either. It was getting worse the longer it went on. It all boiled over when a patron shouted obscenities at Rogers after he did not make a catch.

Im not saying what Rogers did was right but it was a different situation than what El Barba did. Depending on where its said, calling someone a monkey, who is black or has a dark complexion, could have very bad results for the person who said it. It seems at OJA its ok.
