Fans react in support of LSU gymnastics billboard celebrating the teams 2nd place win


Fans are reacting days after a national sports commentator made what some considered an insulting tweet towards LSU’s acknowledgement of the LSU Women’s gymnastics team. National reporter, Darren Rovell explained his tweet in part saying trophies for all basically convey’s an inaccurate and potentially dangerous life message to children and athletes that everyone is not always a winner. The women’s team headed to Fort Worth, Texas last week to compete for a National Championship and while they didn’t win overall, they did place second.
