Some states' high courts have ruled that passing the buck increases the liability of the person who did so. Something to think about.
My thought about this is how do you determine which team's fan threw the bottle. Could have been the players own classmate, who didn't like him. The management responded promptly and accordingly. If the game was close the Team T could have decided the game. Let the players decide not the fans. Just my 2 pennies worth.
