Stop Sports Violence

By Christina Schneider

Sometimes anger and aggression occurs on the field between players during competitive sports(Cox, 2012). Spectators who are watching a game witness sports violence are more prone to become violent themselves during the game. According to Cox, 2012 "acts of aggression serve only to lay the foundation for more aggression".

Fan Violence

Rivalries and alcohol use are some contributing factors in violence between spectators(Cox,2012). Alcohol consumption should be held at a minimum to avoid heightened aggression.
