    Schalke players attacked by fans after getting relegated from Bundesliga

    Schalke fans did not handle the team's relegation from Bundesliga well. Fans of the club verbally berated and threw eggs at players when the team arrived back at Veltins Arena, according to Stephan Uersfeld of ESPN.

    As the team returned to its home stadium, a group of 500 to 600 fans waited for the team, according to Gelsenkirchen police. Once players got off the bus, "eggs were thrown at them and they were verbally abused," police said. The police statement said authorities were able to prevent further escalation.

    When you hire Ivy League dorks running sports team, you get shifts in baseball, walks, using 1 million relievers, tanking and shooting a gazillion three point shots. Luckily, analytics canít ruin football.

    "We were told loud and clear that we should be ashamed of ourselves and all the players, who won't be here next year, should f--- off from now on," the player is reported as saying. "If that doesn't happen, life would be made a living hell for us.


    "We were pelted with eggs, firecrackers went off and the situation escalated completely. The fans attacked us. We just ran. It was fear, pure fear! I was just running. Some of us got kicked and punched. I am shocked, and I don't know how we are going to compete in the next games. I also don't understand why we were exposed to the fans this way in the first place. The club said that there would only be a short exchange. Meanwhile, the police waited away from that situation."

    Schalke said "limits were overstepped" and "for all the understandable frustration and anger because of the relegation into Bundesliga 2, the club will never accept if the physical integrity of its players and staff is put at risk. But that is exactly what happened last night through the act of individuals."

    I like the idea of relegation in pro sports and a much much lower cap to limit the players from forming dream teams

    If the fans want it then it could happen. But the sports media here sugarcoats it and starts presenting it for teams like the Jets and Jaguars last season that it is a "good thing" to lose and shoot for the #1 pick. If there was a threat of sitting out one year from the NFL I'd bet you these coaches and players would find a way to win 1 or 2 games so they will not finish last.

    It's fantastic imo. You better believe that the players would be playing all or mostly all of the games. Also they should do a draft lottery once the season is over including the playoffs for nba and nfl. Every team should be in the lottery not just the bottom feeders.

    LOL America has sit & clap fans, Europe has crazy fans...

    Simple way to fix tanking is to stop rewarding it. Obvious solution to an obvious problem. Just let players sign where they want to and at what ever price they want -no ladder. Salary cap will keep it somewhat fair. Title contenders aren't going to fork out a tonne of money for a rookie anyway.

    NBA has bigger problems than tanking. Down right shading refereeing driving up the scorelines on a nightly basis. Every game multiple egregious calls gifting a guy FTs. Clear mandate there.
