Rules for Lakers Fans Attending Games in Sacramento

Honestly, I really don't mind that Lakers, Celtics and Warriors fans pop into ARCO Arena when their teams play the Kings. That's money in the Kings coffers, and a fuller building is always more exciting.

But -- while many Lakers fans at the game Tuesday were courteous and amiable and smart -- we need to set some ground rules. Add your own ideas in the comments.

 

1. Do not scream "Brad Miller sucks!" during the National Anthem.

2. Chanting "defense" as a visiting fan in the minority isn't terribly useful.

3. If the game starts at 7PM, try to show up before 7:45. I don't want to have to help you understand that you're in the wrong row while Francisco Garcia is dribbling into the paint. It's not like you can blame the traffic.

4. No chanting "M.V.P." when your team is losing by 13 points with a minute left.

5. If your team loses, please do not begin hollering about championships or the standings. Your team lost. This is what we have just witnessed. We did not all show up to ARCO to discuss Lakers history. We're all aware of it, but we really really don't care after a Kings win.

 

That said, we always appreciates the steady stream of purple and yellow -- err, I mean "forum blue and gold," of course -- leaving midway through the fourth. Please continue this activity. Heck, why wait until then? You missed the entire first quarter -- why not leave after the third?

Alright y'all, what have you got?
