  • NFL Unveils New Code of Conduct for Fans

    I hope the Eagles are exempt from this or else the stands will be empty before kickoff every home game.


    NFL UNVEILS NEW FAN CODE OF CONDUCT

    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 5, 2008, 4:02 p.m. UTC

    The NFL announced today that it will implement a new fan code of conduct, and that fans who break the rules can be ejected from stadiums and barred from returning.

    Fortunately, there’s nothing in the new rules that bans standing.

    The league says it is attempting to crack down on behavior that “detracts from the gameday experience,” including:

    – Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal.

    – Drunkenness and signs of alcohol impairment that result in irresponsible behavior.

    – Foul or abusive language or obscene gestures.

    – Interference with the progress of the game, including throwing objects onto the field.

    – Failing to follow instructions of stadium personnel.

    – Verbal or physical harassment of fans from the opposing team.

    There will no doubt be some fans who object to these rules, and some will be hard to enforce, but overall, these guidelines seem reasonable. Assuming that stadium personnel use good judgment in enforcing the rules, this new code of conduct should make life more pleasant for the 10 million or so people who fill NFL stadiums each Sunday.

          Seems reasonable to me. I've been thrown out of Wrigley for a lot less.
          Of course you do.

                Well at least none of that will affect Rams games.

                    You're fine. Apparently you just can't take Jack Adams with you.
                    Of course you do.

                          Chicago Bears just crated a rule that no one is allowed in the Stadium parking lots after kickoff.
                          Of course you do.

                              I should have just tried to dump my beer on the non-cubs outfielder and I would have been allowed to stay, huh?
                              Of course you do.
