(Newser) – A man was carried off the field on a stretcher during a college football game yesterday. Pretty standard stuff—except the guy was an intern for the University of Arkansas' athletics marketing department, not a player, and his injury was caused by ... an exploding T-shirt gun. The loud boom could apparently be heard across the stadium, where the school was playing Louisiana-Lafayette, reports Whole Hog Sports. Witnesses say the intern, whose name has not been released, immediately fell to the ground. He reportedly suffered a leg injury and was taken to hospital.

T shirt guns don't kill people - People with exploding T shirt guns kill people. When T shirt guns are outlawed only outlaws will have T shirt guns .

Almost all of the comments have been removed, and yet none of them contained anything truly questionable. No racist comments, cursing...not even an insult. So can someone explain to me why nearly all the comments on this thread are showing up to me as (comment deleted) but you go to any other thread and its difficult to get through without finding a personal attack, cussing, or blatant racism?
