Take off your shirt?


Not me personally, but if someone wanted to paint their chests blue and black, why not?

The policy states that ANY conduct offensive to others can be subject to disciplinary actions. So basically, its an open door for intrepretation what others deem as offensive. Yes, standing for some people is offensive and I have seen people in year's past get security because the person in front of them stood too often. Go figure, it was a street ticket.

I am currently trying to find my contract to get the exact language.

Just be happy you have a good group in your area. My section is 50/50 at best. Again, I love the folks behind me. I wish the whole section was like them.

Next thing you know, you Panther fans will stop buying us opposing fans beer during the games. When that happens, I am done!!!!!!!

Nice to see they added that rule but it is a shame that the Panther fans allowed the banners to hang there in the first place.

I think our stadium policy is not very different, if at all, from every other NFL team stadium policy, if you'll check. The NFL is actually cracking down on game conduct as well.

The Patriots are proud of the progress that has been made at Patriots games since from the early 1990s and hope that publicizing the expectations of fans through this fan code of conduct initiative will only help to further encourage continued improvements. We continue to require all Patriots patrons to take responsibility for their conduct, to enjoy their day of game experience and to make sure that they are not doing anything that would negatively impact the enjoyment of others. Fans attending games are required to refrain from the following behaviors:

* Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal in nature.
* Intoxication or other signs of alcohol impairment that results 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 or law enforcement.
* Verbal or physical harassment of any of our guests, including other fans, players, coaches or staff.
* Smoking in areas other than those designated as "smoking areas."
* Behaving in a manner to any of the above code violations in any areas outside Gillette Stadium that are either owned or operated by Gillette Stadium or their affiliates.
* Violating the New England Patriots ticketing policies.

All event patrons are responsible for their conduct as well as the conduct of their guests or any other people they allow to use their seats. Stadium staff will promptly intervene to support an environment where event patrons, their guests, and other fans can enjoy the event free from inappropriate behavior. Event patrons and guests who violate these provisions will be subject to ejection without refund and potential loss of ticket privileges for future games. The New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium and the NFL thank you for adhering to our fan code of conduct.

I got your point...all teams have fan conduct rules, I knew that already. Some of our fan base can be easily offended and while other stadium has fan conduct policies, some of them have more exuberant crowds where standing won't get security called on you. Heck in Philly, you can practically get mugged before security is called. That's an extreme example, but my point is our stadium is more prone to tamp down exuberant fans than inconvenience the fair weather 'fans'.

Yeah, look at games on TV of a Panthers' contest 1:00 game versus a say Pats, Bears, Green Bay or Philly game. You notice a difference besides teams? The crowds seem to be more motivated and into them. Are Charlotteans dullards? Could be, but I bet it has something to do with the fact that certain behavior has been frowned upon.

My point is that everybody as pretty much the same fan code of conduct - the primary complaint.

Another point is that I'm not all that certain that we're "more prone" to tamp down certain behavior than anybody else ... the Eagles don't really count.
