I don't see this as a big deal. While I may have done the same thing, I would have done so primarily because they were interfering with the game and had no right to do so.

I just don't get that excited about a couple of a-holes burning a flag, as long as they own the flag. I consider that an exercise of free speech, even if I disagree with it. Free citizens should be allowed to burn the flag, denounce the President, howl at the moon, whatever- and we are free to agree with the or not.

However, these guys were probably trespassing, so they should have been rounded up and taken off the field. Your right to free speech does not mean you get to interfere with others on private property.
