Looks like Riot finally swung that Ban Hammer. A statement released by Riot:

"Hey all,

Instant Feedback catches the most unsportsmanlike players in League, but some people go out of their way to continue ruining games for the community. Because of a well-documented history of account bans for verbal abuse, intentional feeding, as well as account sharing/purchasing, evasion of sportsmanship systems, and player harassment, we will not allow Tyler1 to hold a League of Legends account, indefinitely. Any account definitively used by him will be banned immediately upon identification.

We know we’re not perfect, and this dragged on too long, but we want you to know when the rare player comes along who’s a genuine jerk, we’ve still got your back."

Some people think this elderly woman simply mistook Galen for Guan Yu, but are we really sure? The statue happened to be located outside of an internet cafe, so it stands to reason that this lady might actually just have wanted to make her incense offerings while kneeling before Galen.

Over the weekend, ESPN2 aired a Heroes of the Storm match, and a lot of traditional sports fans had their jimmies rustled:


(Based on that guy's TV, I'm gonna guess he's not exactly on the up and up with regards to video games.)  

Professional baseball player Clint Robinson didn't get it either:



But no one was more upset than Colin Cowherd.  Cowherd hosts a radio show on ESPN called "The Herd With Colin Cowherd" in which he spends three hours talking about sports.  He makes predictions, does play by plays, and apparently talks a lot of trash about eSports.  As you can see in the video clip above, Cowherd has some strong, ignorant feelings about gaming as a sport.  He goes for the stereotypical low blow, saying things like "somebody lock the basement door at mom's house and don't let them out," and expressing a desire to put a gun in his mouth rather than listen to more Heroes of the Storm coverage.  Ironically, he also wails on the enthusiasm of the announcers.  I don't know if he's ever listened to himself or any other sports announcing, but it all sounds like that.

This guy's got no fondness for games, and no respect for anyone that plays them.  I can tolerate people who don't agree with eSports, but I can't tolerate ignorance towards gamers. Sport or no, we're not a bunch of nerds who need to be locked in the basement.  But hey, we can all take some advice from his Twitter bio: "don't allow someone with no life to ruin yours."  Get a life, Colin Cowherd, and stop being such a jerk just because something doesn't appeal to you.
