Fan conduct: Tell us your story



You're at a Bucs game with your wife, or maybe your kids. And the fan behind you is cursing a blue streak:

"Gruden, you ----!"

You're flinching after each incomplete pass and missed tackle because the filthy outrage is close behind, coming over your shoulder.

This is talking during a movie raised to an obscene exponent. You wish the alphabet never included the letter "k."

These tickets cost you $200, you gotta do something, right?

Well, the National Football League is trying to help with a new code of conduct for fans. Grossed out by the drunk two rows back? The NFL now says that "any fan in violation of the code will be subject to ejection without refund, and loss of ticket privileges for future games."

We're writing about the new fan policy for Friday's St. Pete Times.

What do you think? It's about time? It infringes on free speech? What have been your experiences at Bucs games? Post in the comments area.
