Oklahoma State University basketball star Marcus Smart received a three-game suspension after shoving a fan in the final seconds of the Cowboys' loss against Texas Tech Saturday night.

Smart has apologized for his role in the altercation. The fan, Jeff Orr, also apologized and called his actions "inappropriate." Orr said in a statement that he called Smart a "piece of crap." Smart alleged that Orr directed a racial slur at him.

Do you think there is ever a time when shoving is acceptable between a spectator and a player? Or should sports events be strictly "hands off?"
