Matt Schaub may soon be leaving Houston. Right about now, he probably wants to.
According to SportsRadio 610, fans confronted Schaub at his home on Tuesday evening.
“A fan went to his house and told him off,” a source close to law enforcement told The Fred and Ted Show. Another fan allegedly took pictures of Schaub’s family and posted them on Facebook.
The persons left before police arrived. Schaub reportedly contacted NFL Security.
It goes without saying that the fans crossed a line that always should be respected. Still, the zeal and passion the NFL conjures in its fans can lead to extreme cases like this. The league, its teams, and law enforcement need to be ready to take aggressive action when necessary to protect players, coaches, executives, and their families — and to prosecutors need to be ready to enforce any and all laws that may be broken by fans who take it too far.
