Absolutely! Who on earth down voted you?
It's like those German girls in the crowds berating the government for not looking after them the way Hitler would for wearing revealing clothes and arm tattoos in the presence of morons from unknown cultures. (I am not blaming anybody I actually think that if you want to walk around totally naked you should be perfectly safe to do so.)
But it shouldn't require a Nazi state mentality to keep anyone safe. If you leave your car door unlocked and the keys in it then your insurance should refuse to pay. Ever since the moneyball era the practice of hiring computer engineers has become widespread in sport generally. If the powers that be never learned to be careful they shoulder most of the blame.
"Exclusion clauses are found in almost all motor insurance policies, although the precise wording and scope of the clause can vary. Insurers include these clauses because they do not intend to cover loss or damage caused by theft when the consumer deliberately or inadvertently leaves the ignition keys in or on the car."
Either hire an insurance techies next time, or learn the meaning of the term "great game".
I would sentence all parties to watching Money Ball and The Blind Side every day for a couple of years. That should be enough. Maybe make the Cardinals trade a quarter of their fans to a team less stooooopiiiid?
