"Round 1! Ready? Fight!"
On our SPORTSSOTROS website, I wrote an article about reasons fan fights occur in sports and everything as to why sports fans get in altercations as opposed to sitting and enjoying a nice, brisk game of competition.
In all honesty, I thought conflicts at casinos were rare and not as common. Well, darn, I was completely wrong: Besides trash talking at table games, purse-snatching thieves and patrons armed with weapons to get revenge or to rob, fights have occurred in gambling venues for as long as I can remember. Some of them are patrons trying to challenge authorities, mostly for cheating, but other than that, fights have always been going on even when security cameras don't catch them. Like witnessing public drama, we've catered to the routine in pulling out our cell phones and record the mayhem, so long that it doesn't include the one(s) recording. Having said that means those in the altercation are up for Internet humiliation. As we already know, anything posted on the Internet will be stuck online forever. Saying that means this: you either move on with your life and realize that there are ways to work things out, or be ready to have your identity shown for billions of people to see (even if the candid video doesn't garner hundreds of thousands of views, just hope your employer didn't see it).
Like posting videos of sports fans and writing about it on our SPORTSSOTROS website, this article displaying casino fights is written to knock on the doors of authorities and securities to remind them what goes on when they're not looking. Yeah, I'm on their side of the equation because as much as I enjoy hanging inside a casino, loving the ambient noise and music, I hate having nonentities ruin the joy and fun with a useless, pointless argument for people to see in disbelief due to alcohol, cheating, and just plain stupidity.
I provided reasons why sports fans instigate fights at live sports events. In this case, the reasons for fights at casinos is a tough interpretation since the fights started could be for any reason, like excessive alcohol consumption which we know is obvious. What are the possible reasons? This time, let's have you do the reasoning. What do you think?
