Bobby Knight yells at fans to sit down during telecast (Video)
When Bobby Knight is calling a game from the announcer’s table, you do not obstruct his view.
Some young fans at the Temple-SMU game found this out the hard way during Thursday night’s ESPN2 telecast as Knight twice screamed for the offending parties to have a seat during live action. (Video via The Big Lead)
Knight took credit for getting the boisterous spectators “back on their butts where they belong,” but wouldn’t you know it, they were right back in his way during the next possession. He then politely offered one fan to switch seats with him in order to have an unobstructed view of the action.
The fan didn’t take him up on the offer, but he should consider himself lucky that Knight didn’t resort to his old coaching-day tactics.
No word if Knight was also imbibing during the broadcast.
