In response to andrewmitch's comment:
I'd consultant with assistance of counsel first.
If it becomes a mess later, you need to have your lawyer involved from the beginning - the later he gets involved the harder the job becomes.
It's like when you get into a car accident - always file a report. You don't have to contact insurance but you always have the option. If you don't file a report, in most state you lose that option - or at least it becomes much harder.
Anyways, what Gomes did makes me sick. If you did that to him he'd surely charge you instantly.
This is a bit over an over reaction. He shouldn't of done it, it was careless. However they were celebrating with the fans, so risk has to be assumed by the fans. Also this about the worst thing that could have happen from this situation. People like you are the reason insurance is so high. It is silly to think that an apology and a couple tickets would make this go away. A cut above the eye does really effect after it had been treated. I bet you sued your kids friends parents if he twisted his ankle in their back yard.
