  1. TCU tennis player publicly reprimanded by Big 12 Conference for spitting on Texas Tech fan

    By MATT HOWE

    During last Friday’s men’s tennis match between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Texas Tech Red Raiders, TCU junior Juan Martin spit on a Texas Tech fan while leaving the court. Martin lost the singles match to Texas Tech’s Isaac Arevalo 7-5, 5-4, unfinished.

    On Wednesday, Martin was issued a public reprimand from the Big 12 Conference commissioner’s office.

    In accordance with Big 12 Conference sportsmanship policies, TCU men’s tennis student-athlete Juan Martin has been issued a public reprimand for his conduct during Friday’s match at Texas Tech. The reprimand is in addition to a two-match suspension levied by TCU in response to Martin spitting on a Red Raider fan while leaving the court.

  2. Is spitting on a Tech fan not allowed? Asking for a friend.
     
  3. Just since the pandemic...
     
  4. Not allowed on Tech fans, but not sure about Baylor.

  6. I hadn't heard about this so don't have detail on the circumstances, but this is not good. Of course, there is a mitigating factor (it's Tech), but still.

    Next time he should spit on some tortillas in advance and throw those instead.

  7. If you spit on a Tech fan, can you contract their rash?

  8. Trust me, that spit is the LEAST thing a Tech fan has to worry about in terms of contagions.

  9. Posted this question in the Tennis thread but wondered if he spit on the fan from a distance in excess of 6' and if not is Tech being sanctioned for improper fan control that endangers a player with possible COVID infection.

    Bad look for him and tennis team. If someone from another school spit on one of our fans we’d be outraged.
     
  13. I am curious as to what the Tech fan said to bring this response.

  14. Momeeeeeeeeee!! Bobby's LOOKING AT ME again!!!!!!!
     
  15. Something with enough bite to get Juan a 2 game (IIRC) suspension. At this level, an athlete has to be pro enough to not escalate.
     
  16. ...but not pro enough to get paid...
