64 years old? Damn, I was guessing a stupid liquored up kid.....
Seems cut and dry
Words = ok (and yes, faint hearts, that should be for all words and phrases not outside 1st amendment protection)
Whistles and assorted non-enhanced noises = ok
Throwing hats on ice after hat trick = ok
Throwing the octopi on ice at the appropriate time = ok
Throwing things on playing surface for any other reason = bad
Enhanced noises = bad (that goes for teams, too, Indy)
Using mirrors, lasers or other means to blind players = bad
Just curious, how do you know a direct hit would have caused irreparable damage? And four people agreed with you - how do they know a direct hit would do damage. In the picture I saw it was a pretty big laser spot size, for the fluence to be above the damage threshold it would require quite a bit of energy.
"Seems cut and dry, lasers to blind players". How do you know that the laser fluence was above the retina damage threshold? Just curious.
How about throwing vibrators on the field?
Well they had to get their ducks in a row to hit him with a serious charge like disturbing the peace. Probably got a judge to sign off on a sneak and peek warrant based on laser pointers being the tip of the iceberg for death rays and whatnot, probably clinched the bust when the surveillance showed him teasing his cat with the pointer
Blinding doesn't need to be a permanent thing, as the mirror example should have helped to make clear. Feel free to use "make visually uncomfortable, or worse, by deliberately aiming light into a participant's eyes or line of vision".
I'm not sure that's quite on par with octopi and hats as a long standing tradition. But, if Buffalo wants to make a case for it...
Perhaps you should consult the woman in your avatar, looks like she has a vision problem.
Thats what i thought.

That guy doesn't go a day without drinking for 1/2 of it.
And sometimes 3x that!
why post a pic of an average 34 year old KC man?
There are actually quite a bit of articles out there that detail the damage it can do to the retina.
Laser pointers can cause irreversible vision loss for kids - Reuters
You should know, then, that a laser will impart the same energy at 300 feet as it does at 10 feet as it does at 1000 feet. If the laser was more than 5mw yes there is the possibility that permanent damage to the eye could result.
Can he come to Chiefs games in Fixboro?
Lasers are very nasty on eyesight. Even a fairly low level laser can actually cut a gash through your retina that never heals again. Anyone working with lasers for a living or even as a hobby knows to wear special eye protection or can expect to have holes in their field of vision that last the rest of their lives.
This idiot was deliberately risking the vision of a guy who relies on vision to make his bread. I don't know how powerful the actual laser pointer in question is buy why the hell would you take that risk with another man's health? It was a ridiculously petty thing to do that maybe wasn't guaranteed to do harm but definitely risked harm to another human being and I'm all for bringing the law crashing down on any idiot who thinks that's OK.
If the FAA goes crazy anytime some knucklehead points a green laser at a plane/helicopter, I trust they have legit cause for concern. Same rule applies for sporting venues, lasers and athletes' eyes.
Agreed - faulty assumption - my apologies.
It is dependent on the distance - since the fan is in the stands it is unlikely to cause any damage.
Yes the energy drops very little but damage is a function of the energy density, or energy in the laser spot size. As the spot gets bigger with distance the energy density drops - it is a squared function so it drops rapidly. There is little chance eye damage could happen.
As Deus notes any non-damaging event should be banned and yes it is petty and the punishment is justified.
Having said that, leveling unfounded accusations of eye damage is no better than "more likely than not" while ignoring the Ideal Gas Law, and allegations of sex trafficking. Patsfans.com is better than Goodell and the Jupiter police.
