I May Sell My PSLs

Redskins fan Adam Myrick of Lexington, S.C., predicts unruly fans won't take the new rules seriously until clubs revoke their season tickets, then publicize it.

Myrick, 33, says he hasn't attended an NFL game this year because of fans' drunkenness and rude behavior. He'd like to take his 4-year-old daughter to a game, but doesn't think NFL games are safe for families.

That's the downside. If this actually works, fans like Adam might start going to games again.

Well - according to our fans, our stadium is the only one doing this. How can this article be talking about all the rest of the stadiums?

This isn't going to work, because people are going to start getting reported for problems they didn't start or create. My wife got hit in the back of the head at the Bucs game, on our own damn field, why, who knows, but a little bit of a chock hold followed by threats worked well and it didn't happen again. Texting security surely would have made things worse and probably would have ended with us getting kicked out instead of the trouble makers.

Goodell's rules — the result of rising concern that fan misconduct was driving some people from games — say that patrons who are drunk or disruptive, who use foul language or make obscene gestures or who verbally or physically harass other fans can be refused admission to games, or kicked out of them without refunds. Such fans also can be stripped of their season tickets

Can't see anything wrong with the intent. Hopefully security would come down, verify the complaint and then take action.

Just be an upright human during the game. Not that hard.

Saw a guy tossed in front of me at the Broncos game.

Numbnuts was heckling a Bronco fan a row away.It was starting to die down and the guy sitting down caught in the middle with his teen son, calmly asked the guy to quit yelling in his ear.

The drunk guy mumbled something and the guy said just sit down or he will get security.

Drunk guy would have none of it and kept on. Dude went and got security and then tried to rumble with them.

But to add to the jackassery was the drunk guys friends standing there laughing and watching.

Had that been one of my friends, the moment I saw the guy start to head to get security I would have stepped in and lightened things up.

Enjoy and live it up at the game. Being respectul of others is not hard. There are not people yelling at you at the start of the game to NOT drink.

Mans got to know his limitations.

Voice of reason right there. Being a decent person isn't a stretch. I like mixing it up with opposing fans as much as the next guy, but there's a limit. Remember it's a darn game, and sportsmanship applies to fans as well. And everything comes back to you sooner or later.

And this yahoo....

Not sure that I'll ever be able to take my daughter to a game unless this policy gets some real teeth to it very soon. -- Adam Myrick, Lexington, S.C.

    • Scouting report: A player who arguably all season long was the best offensive threat in college basketball sits around the later top ten in almost all draft boards. Monk is easily compared to Jamal Crawford because of his aggressive shooting combined with the ability to score from anywhere. Monk shot a near 40 percent from three while shooting 82 percent from the free throw line in his first year at Kentucky. Monk averaged an SEC second best 19.8 points per game. Monk has a shooting skillset that is needed in the NBA but is hard to find. He has that unconscious shooting stroke which can be Curry like at times. What intrigues scouts the most about Monk is that he is not just a shooter, he plays above the rim and he can guard either the one or the two. Although Monk showed off his high-flying display all year long at Kentucky, it was his defense that stood out the most. His run and gun mentality allows him to jump passing lanes and play in your face defense on almost every possession forcing turnovers and fast break opportunities quite frequently. Monk is a dangerous transition guard who can score in a flurry. With the way that the NBA is going regarding athletic three point shooting guards, Monk would fit well with virtually every team in the NBA and could be used in multiple different lineups. Even though he is a shooter, Monk has the capability of running an offense and getting his teammates open.
