Let’s say you’re a huge Blazers fan and are attending a Lakers playoff game in LA. You’re wearing a Lakers jersey. You manage to get close enough so that at an opportune moment you blow a ref whistle you’ve snuck in and it affects the outcome of the game - players stop, etc.
Since you’re clever enough to be wearing a Lakers jersey, you’re clever enough to have timed this deliberately so that it seems you’re a Laker fan trying to hurt the Blazers. Let’s say the Blazers get a game-changing technical, or whatever.
What would be the ruling at the game? The fallout? How about after it comes out that you’re really a “double-agent”?
Why doesn’t this happen more often? Or more often at a college game? Seems like there’d be more jerks out there that would do this.
I’m choosing basketball here over football or hockey b/c the players could hear the whistle more clearly, with no helmets and the fans being closer to the action.
