    Default Rick Rypien goes after fan.

    Nothing concrete yet, but talk of a 10 game suspension seems to be the most dominant rumor at this point.

    Yeah, I heard (what the **** is that hockey guy's name) talking about that this morning.

    Suggested that players should NEVER go after fans and to just suck it up. I have a different opinion on the issue - if they fine and suspend the **** out of this guy, it's going to be a clear message to fans that they can do whatever the **** they want when a player walks by.

    I disagree. Players get taunted by fans in every sport all the **** time. At most, all there ever really is is a little jawing back and forth between the player and fan(s). If that was all Rypien had done, we wouldn´t even be having this conversation.
    As far as fans having free will to do what they want, I don´t see that either. Common sense should tell any fan if they provocate a physical altercation or come into any physical contact with a player or throw **** at them, etc... they will be the ones punished.

    He had no reason to go after that fan. The fan didn't do anything except clap at him. I'm sure the fan said some things to him that weren't very nice too, but he didn't attack him or throw anything at him. He should get suspended, but only for a couple of games IMO, since he didn't hit the fan or anything. He just grabbed him and let go.
