Heckling is commonplace in sports. But the Tufts lacrosse team took things too far when they hurled racist and sexually explicit comments at the visiting Smith College women's team. The lacrosse team was punished and apologies were issued, but it brings up a question. When does heckling cross the line into harassment? Is there a place for heckling in volleyball?
