    Obscene gestures maybe?


    What is obscene about mooning a Packers fan? Hell, they would certainly be looking at something more attractive than most of their wives no matter who did the mooning. Then again it could put thoughts of infidelity into their heads so maybe it isn't such a good idea.

    It includes bans on:

    - 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.

    Re: NFL announces new fan code of conduct

    Ladies and Gentlemen...I've been to games in LA, Oakland, Houston, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, St. Louis, Minnesota (thankfully, mucho games), Chicago, New York (Jets and Giants), Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Miami, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington (in the Owner's box...thanks Daniel), Detroit, and Carolina.
    In my humble opinion, these "fan rules" are directed specifically at Eagles, Jets, and Raiders fans.
    Admittedly, I've not been to a game in New England, or Indy, or several others.....that said, Philly is THE ONE PLACE I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO.

    I've also been to CFB games in many, many venues.......as a 'Husker's fan.
    Only one place, was a problem.....another discussion.

    When you wear a Vikes jersey into a hostile environment, you garner a certain level of respect...did it at Giant's Stadium when Moon was our QB, CC was "the man," and Reeves outcoached Denny when we had the better Team.
    No problem, tight game...tailgaited, hung out, amongst Giant's fans...nola problema.

    Been in Tampa, with a CC jersey on, when we were chanting "Vinny," "Vinny," "Vinny," when he sucked...and, ultimately, when he beat our ass.....tailgaited, played football with Bucs fans, drank afterwards...etc; no prob.

    And so on, etc, and so on...the one place with significant issues was Philly.
    They suck.
    One example has Eagle's fans chanting, "ASSHOLE, ASSHOLE, ASSHOLE....." right behind a dad (in civilian clothes) walking with his 6, 7, or 8 year-old son in his Moss jersey.
    This was not an exception, it was commonplace in THE PARKING LOT BEFORE THE GAME.
    What a joke.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Based on those rules, half the players in the NFL would be thrown out of the stadium.

    And like MaxVike said, Philly fans are the worst...they even booed Santa Claus and threw snowballs at him.

    even better, here in winnipeg, ive got season tickets with 4 of my buddies, and we drink alot at the games..sure enough, the lady with season tickets next to us has 3 seats..one for her big fat ass, one for her 5000$ camera, and one for her laptop..a football game, and shes got a camera and a laptop..she doesnt sell these pictures, she takes them for herself, and uploads them onto her laptop during the game..this is the most pathetic display ive ever seen in a sports facility

    i would accidently spill my drink on her crap and hope she would never come back. of coarse it could be beer that i spilled, that is a waste. maybe buy a pop or something. usually before the games we go to 7-11 and get slurpees so i could get that on her crap.

    Re: NFL announces new fan code of conduct

    You might as well close down the entire AFC West, because "rude, unruly behavior" is what they live for in their stadiums.

    How about "no throwing batteries on the field at opposing players" (for Cleveland).

    I consider the worst fan bases in terms of the "code" to be, in order of badness:
    1. Philly
    2. Oakland
    3. San Diego
    4. Denver
    5. Cleveland

    I was out in San Diego last fall and watched the Vikings-Packers game in my hotel lobby with a bartender who was a Packers fan. He was an older guy and was cool and we got along well. But he had lived in SD for about 30 years and told me that the AFC West is the worst conference. The way he explained it was: "Oakland in the 1960s was like a motorcycle gang. This carried over to their fans, and then it carried over to the other fans, in the other AFC West cities". I remember an Oakland coach saying that Denver fans were the worst he had ever seen.

    I am in overall agreement with the code, but I just hope it doesn't degenerate into political correctness.

    In college football, they don't even let a guy celebrate after he has scored a TD. I hope the NFL is not going in that direction...
