The Loudmouth Project

Sports fan behavior and the ethics of fandom

On this episode of the Loudmouth Project’s Voices of Reason, Amy Donaldson and Jasen Lee are joined by Deseret News Utah Jazz beat writer Eric Woodyard to discuss sports fan behavior in the wake of the Jazz issuing lifetime bans to two fans for verbal abuse involving NBA All-star Russell Westbrook. They also share their thoughts on separating one’s feelings from a famous artist’s work even when they have exhibited abhorrent or even criminal behavior.
