Not only does Bashir Levingston not belong in Canadian football, he doesn't belong in Canadian society. He should be charged and imprisoned for his tantrum after the Argos' loss on Labour Day.
As the Argos were leaving the stadium, some Ticat fans in the stands over the entrance to the dressing room were taunting them. No surprise there; even the stupidest of Argos knows to expect this. Apparently someone spit on Levingston, and while I don't condone this, Levingston's reaction was nothing short of criminal. He heaved his helmet into the crowd, but missed his intended target and hit an innocent child.
And the worst part is that the local media is portraying the fans as the bad guys, while no one is mentioning anything about possible disciplinary action against the Argo kick returner. A football helmet is a very hard, heavy object, and thrown into a crowd of people has the potential to seriously injure someone. There is no room for thugs like this in our league.
Besides criminal charges against Levingston, I also hope that the parents of the child hit by the helmet are pursuing legal action against him and the Argos. And I know if I had been there and had been fortunate enough to catch the helmet, they would get it back either when they pried it from my cold dead hands, or when they bought it from me off of eBay, or when Levingston came to get it from me, face to face, without police protection.
