The Dangers of Sideline Work

On Saturday, Mike Simons of the Tulsa World had a $10,499 lens destroyed. Today, he apologized for hurting Oklahoma’s Sterling Shepard.

Simons is a class act, folks.

Let this be a warning to all shooters on the sidelines – if you watch the video, you’ll see him move out of the way easily. Why? He was on his knees, not sitting but kneeling. Had he been sitting, as I’ve seen way too many shooters do, he would have been flattened along with his glass.

Pay attention.

And to the athletic departments that hand out field passes to well-heeled alumni, knock it off. It’s a safety issue for your players and the journalists there to cover them.
