Alabama fan confesses to, or brags about, potential construction damage to Kyle Field

Rice v Texas A&M Getty Images

Earlier this week we touched on how an Alabama fan hung an Alabama flag from Texas A&M’s Kyle Field, which is being upgraded over the next year and a half. That fan was reportedly fired. For hanging up a flag of a division rival of Texas A&M’s? Apparently not.

“This stadium will never be ready for this season,” Bobby Livingston, the fired Alabama fan responsible for the flag hanging, according to KBTX. “I’m putting iron in backwards and wrong holing everything!!”

He apparently did not stop there.

“If you ever attend a Texas A&M football game, don’t sit at the Northeast End Zone,” said Livingston. “It was raining today and I made 2 very “questionable” welds!!”

An inspector for the Kyle Field upgrade puts some concerns to rest with a statement saying a third-party firm has inspected, tested and verified different parts of the renovation project. To this point not structural damage or concerns have been discovered.

It is one thing to jokingly hang a flag of a rival from the football stadium. It is something else entirely to actually vandalize the stadium. Sometimes rivalry crosses a line that never needs to be crossed. Grown men vandalizing a stadium may just be one example. Faulty construction puts lives in danger, and that is worse than vandalism.

    Is this for real?

    On behalf of BAMA fans everywhere; YOU’RE FIRED!!

    No one who is loyal to BAMA and understands the role of its fan base wishes any harm to come to another fan base. Good ol fashion rivalry is and always has been a part of the game. This moron just as Updyke, more than likely never attended BAMA as a student and has taken the definition of “fan” to a place no true supporter of UA would ever go…

    This idiot is the type of fan that no team or its “normal” fanbase wants to be associated with. Hopefully, he was only shooting his mouth off about substandard workmanship.

    Please please try to understand all that in breeding and male on male sodomy that goes on in Alabama makes their judgment questionable.

    It’s all the inbreeding and male on male sodomy that makes Bama fans judgment a lil erratic

    As with all teams, most Bama fans are lovely, well-behaved people. And then you have a handful of crazies. The biggest problem with our crazies is that for some inexplicable reason they like to post their escapades on You Tube and Facebook or call up and brag about them on the radio. It’s not enough to get themselves fired or sent to jail for being complete nutjobs … they have to embarrass the rest of us as well.

    Sigh …

    I find the comments from this nutjob to be very disturbing. Whenver you mention sabotaging something where peoples’ lives could be in danger, that’s going way over the lines. I’m sure there is some criminal charge that this knucklehead should face and I think they should pursue it to the furthest extent of the law. There’s just a line you don’t cross and this guy went so far over it that he should enjoy some time as a guest of the state. Sports is for fun and enjoyment and when you begin to endanger the lives of innocent people that makes you no better than a terrorist.

    Can someone please give @goodfieldnohit some credit, he posted this on here days ago…

  12. mcmccii says: Jul 17, 2014 6:40 PM

    Typical Alabama. Not surprised at all.

  13. rolltide510 says: Jul 17, 2014 6:46 PM

    I just don’t understand this guy. It’s just A&M, a team we’ve lost to twice out of six matchups, and never at that stadium.

    I understand general antipathy towards the land grant schools but try to focus on our actual rival.

  14. Deb says: Jul 17, 2014 6:58 PM

    @8to80 …

    Yes, was tempted to tell Kevin he was a bit behind since goodfieldnohit posted the link to this nut’s Facebook page on the other thread about this story and we’ve been discussing it for days. :)

    Mental illness… DUH… he’s a WELDER!

    Many of those long-timers suffer greatly from toxicity.

  16. rmccleary97 says: Jul 17, 2014 7:08 PM

    The whole things sounds like something Bobby Updyke would have done in a fit of rage after the Aggies beat the Tide.

    Just because you typed and posted the same statement (a little differently worded) doesn’t make your opinion /statement true. I could say all LSU fans are toothless, backwood, swamp rat retards, but that doesn’t make it true either.

    Just because you’re bitter that Saban left LSU doesn’t mean your derogatory and asinine statements are valid….

  18. tngilmer says: Jul 17, 2014 8:39 PM

    This guy is a complete jerk who needs to be banned from all SEC stadiums for the rest of his life (just like wolfman55h).

  19. Deb says: Jul 17, 2014 8:41 PM

    @rmccleary97 …

    I believe you mean Harvey Updyke, the lunatic tree poisoner. Bobby Updyke is probably some nice guy who just cheers for his teams like a normal fan. :)

  20. wolfman55h says: Jul 17, 2014 8:51 PM

    Dhardy put your one good tooth in find your other shoe and go fuck yourself Gump

  21. wolfman55h says: Jul 17, 2014 8:54 PM

    You play a pussy ass conference schedule. How’d that sugar bowl go vs Big Game Bob?

  22. osage44 says: Jul 17, 2014 9:01 PM

    This a fairly typical behavior from an Alabama fan.

  23. coolhorn46 says: Jul 17, 2014 9:38 PM

    This is getting really entertaining! Hold on while I go get some popcorn, and then, by all means, keep the insults coming.

    Correct. It’s called terrorism. No different than yelling fire in a theater or calling in a bomb threat.

    I know it’s a waste of tax payer money, but he needs to be arrested and walked around the site pointing out all of his errors. Otherwise, throw his back side in jail with Updike.

    Uh, evidently this loyal Bama fan feels differently than you do.

  26. sailbum7 says: Jul 18, 2014 1:05 AM

    Getting fired is no where near enough punishment for this idiot. If he truly did what he is claiming then he needs to be arrested and charged with industrial sabotage. What he did could get people killed and that goes far beyond anything that is acceptable. Non-dangerous pranks between rivals is one thing, taking actions that could seriously injure or kill people is criminal and should be prosecuted.

    No real sports fan would do something like this, no matter how bitter the rivalry. I am sure that Bama fans want to see this looney prosecuted as much as A&M fans do. This type of psychotic idiot should not be walking around free.

  27. hittfamily says: Jul 18, 2014 1:24 AM

    This guy is an idiot. If something ever goes wrong there, and someone is injured, you can be certain that at best, police will be probing him, and at worst, manslaughter charges.

    Awww… did you get those soiled briefs of yours in a wad? Its okay, bitterness makes life just ugly all the way around. Funny that you can talk about teeth and such, how long have you had those falsies chomping between your gums?

    Unlike yourself I’m not lonely enough to have to “f” myself. Unlike you I shower more than once a year and don’t bare the musk of a skunk…

  29. dhardy8207 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:19 AM

    @sportsfan18

    Yes it always proves a point when you base the actions of one in judging an entire fan base…

    As well as it has worked for LSU the last two seasons against BAMA….

  31. wadaea says: Jul 18, 2014 9:48 AM

    This proves my point on another post…alabama fans are worst then penn state fans..they are a sick bunch…

  32. witchrunner says: Jul 18, 2014 9:55 AM

    They must have cut the story short. I missed the part about the arrest and imprisonment.

  33. billf7095 says: Jul 18, 2014 11:01 AM

    Heaven forbid, but in 20 years if there is some sort of structural failure at Kyle Field that hurts someone this idiot could be held responsible.

    He should have just kept his mouth shut and gone home. Due to the fact that he is an idiot, lets add his name to the infamous group of Bama fans:

    - Harvey Updike
    - Phyllis from Mulga
    - Woman that fought the OU fans at the Superdome
    - Billy Livingston

    Great job!

  34. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 18, 2014 11:52 AM

    Don’t forget Brian Downing….

  35. Deb says: Jul 18, 2014 12:43 PM

    Gee thanks, 8to80. As if we could.

    @sailbum7 and witchrunner …

    If making moronic statements on social media were a crime, we’d never find prison space to hold the offenders. As an Alabama fan, I’d love to build a special asylum to house these kooks so they can stop embarrassing us. But until there’s some confirmation that he actually did sabotage the job site, authorities have no reason to arrest this bigmouthed boob. Yes, if there’s any evidence to support his Big Talk, I’m sure he’ll be facing serious charges … as he should.

  36. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 18, 2014 12:53 PM

    @Deb

    You’re welcome! ;-)

    I just didn’t want a deserving kook to be left out.

  37. tony34343434 says: Jul 18, 2014 5:55 PM

    Bama fans are the white trash of college sports. First poisoning trees now this.

    I guess when you are a step above a community college this is the type of fan you get

  38. jfkelly1 says: Jul 19, 2014 12:03 AM

    Bobby should be waiting for a visit from the police for his “harmless” prank!

  39. tnfire69 says: Jul 19, 2014 10:20 PM

    some of these comments. So because one stupid fan does something that is f$&ked up means the whole fan base is the same way?
    That’s just crazy! I mean every fan base has f*@ked up fans. I have a hard time believing any normal fan would be okay with someone doing something or not doing something that could put thousands of people at risk of injury or loss of life. I hope you all don’t really believe that.

  40. auburntigers34 says: Jul 20, 2014 12:13 AM

    one fan? there’s the tree poisoner, the teabagger, the leaping mom at the OU game,etc…and now this clown. bama has more than their share of idiot fans…..way more than their share.

  41. goodfieldnohit says: Jul 20, 2014 1:03 PM

    @ Kevin – y’all let me know when you need some more news that’s not 3 days old ;)

    And Mr. Livingston needs to do some hard time. Getting fired isn’t enough.

  42. packerbadger says: Jul 21, 2014 2:06 PM

    Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Its about what I would expect. Funny how actual life events keep confirming my beliefs.

  43. packerbadger says: Jul 21, 2014 2:59 PM

    When he was doing his spotty welds, he would yell: “Hey maw, watch this!”

  44. auburntigers34 says: Jul 21, 2014 3:24 PM

    another “isolated” incident

  45. packerbadger says: Jul 21, 2014 4:37 PM

    Bet he’s the guy who sucker punched the ex-LSU quarterback.

  46. mazblast says: Jul 24, 2014 4:49 PM

    I hope that my life never becomes so empty that I intentionally harm anyone else in the name of a sports team or university.

    As for those who say “it’s just one crazy fan”, I believe you somewhat, but you have to admit that this sort of thing seems to happen a lot with SEC fans, particularly those who root for Alabama. And I say that as someone who respects and sometimes roots for the great program at Alabama.
