Cardinals Coach Kliff Kingsbury Wants Fan Who Slapped Kyler Murray to be Banned from NFL Stadiums for Life

You do the crime, you’re going to serve some time.

The Arizona Cardinals had a game to remember. They mounted a huge comeback before winning a thriller in overtime. The game was in Las Vegas so Raiders fans got to watch the Arizona Cardinals players celebrate on the Allegiant Stadium field. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was celebrating with fans in the stands behind one of the end zones when a fan hit Murray in the face.

Let’s take another look at the Slap below:

There was a mix of Raiders and Cardinals fans around Murray, but the person who hit Murray was wearing grey, so we can only assume it wasn’t a Cardinals fan. The police are currently investigating the situation.


“Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield told the Associated Press that a battery complaint was filed around 6:30 p.m. local time on Sunday with an allegation that ‘a spectator at the stadium struck a professional football player.’”

The player filing the complaint wasn’t known, Yahoo reported.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters Monday he hoped the fan is banned from NFL stadiums for life.

“I was just told about it,’’ Kingsbury said. “But I think that guy’s a lowlife, whoever did it, and I hope they arrest him, he gets fired and can never go to another game.’’

There is so much going on during a celebration, it’s really hard to know what the hell really happened.  Only a matter of time before they identify the slapper, and there’s no doubt he’ll get banned from at least one stadium.
