IMO, yes everytime. I hate the football team from the university of Texas. It brings joy to my heart when they get pummled and scores of their fare weather fans stream out of the stadium. But, in 06 when the aggies stuffed Colt McCoy's four attempts to get past his line of scrimmage and won. I was elated. The last hit was a brutal blindside I jumped and cheered the hit and the victory...until Keith Jackson said "McCoy is down and isn't moving". The needle skipped off the record and u went from hating my for to being genuinely concerned for this young man and his future. Turns out he was just made out of paper, but the point is sports mean sportsmanship
Treat stressful situations like a puupy would. If you can't hump it or chew on it, than lift your leg to it and walk away
It's not a case of damaging someone with your mind, it's a case of showing some class and not taking a game that you're not personally involved with that seriously.
Well, the debate of whether or not it's "classy" is pretty subjective in the already tacky world of pro sports, but the question was whether or not it was "wrong" which I took to mean morally right or wrong.
I don't see any moral qualms with wishing harm to a pro-athlete. Like on the spectrum of what's morally wrong, it doesn't seem like its even on the radar.

I remember when this football player from either the Giants or the Bills back in the Super Bowl 2 decades ago hit Joe Montana so hard that he suffered a concussion. One guy at school acted as if it was a cool thing that it happened. It wasn't cool nor was it funny.
