All due respect Andreas, no they won't. No one is going to look at people laughing at this GIF and then say, "oh, if I kick a chair at the tourney then I get the LOLZ." This is why @Wizcat brought up what I said the other day. Some things just get taken way too seriously and all the joy is sucked out of the room!
My stance? I laughed at this many times. I saved the longer version in my happy folder so I can look at it on stupid days. It's really funny to me because it's unexpected. You see a handshake, a head shake, and then the poor chair gets punted out of no where!
Do I think this is acceptable just because I think it's hilarious? Nope. We're I there, I'd probably say something to the player that did it, no matter who they are. It's still totally funny though, and even more so in retrospect. I heard that a certain red candidate supporter broke a chair at this event also? That's probably worse!
@nicoleanne You do a fine job filtering out the jerks and keeping the peace. It's your spot and you're welcome to run your business anyway you see fit. I think the main point @Wizcat was getting at was to just chill for a bit and see the humor in this. Trent probably hurt himself more than that poor chair.
If it helps with any humility, I'll share too. A few months ago I was playing against Chris "SPECIALS" Chinn at FFDD in a weekly. We were upstairs on Pinbot and I went for a slap save but missed my mark on the wind up which made me spin a bit and tumble right down to the ground. I fell over trying to slap save the machine. After he helped me up, and I lost the game, we laughed about it a bunch. This is supposed to be fun! And that's why it's kinda extra funny when someone lashes out that strong because they're taking it too seriously!
I haven't read every single post here, but there's my take.
