Getting violent about a sport you're watching is one of the biggest indicators that you have failed as a human being.

C'mon subby, we all know they're doing 30 days in solitary for shiving a guard. And all you need to do to sidestep this is pay with cash or have a friend/relative buy the tickets? Boy, that's going to be hard to get around.

Asinine tag is for the violent sports fans I hope. People who fight at sporting events have problems separating sports fandom from reality and need to stay away from the games.

Better hope Massachusetts doesn't pass the same law. Attendance at Fenway would be down 99%.

Aarontology: Getting violent about a sport you're watching is one of the biggest indicators that you have failed as a human being.

Unless you're a guy that hasn't failed at life, like me, but you're at the game and someone that is a piece of crap decides to step over the line. Because then, I kick that's guy's ass. Please accept this CSB as an example of said line-stepping:

A Saints fan in SF who'd been out of control all game once lost his mind, thought my girl said something she didn't, turned around tossed an empty cup at her and called her a coont. I went down to his row, told him clamly and directly that if he turned around or spoke to her again I'd break his nose and maybe his jaw. Then I walked back to my row. He called the ushers on me and tried reporting me as a "bad fan" (that's the NFL term)...they tried tossing me out, based solely on him saying I threatened him, until the sweet little old ladies in front of me intervened and said I was the good guy and the one showing restraint. So screw this law: too easy for people to get excluded when they haven't earned it.

If the Nanny StateTM attempted to do this, the stands at every Rangers vs. Celtic match would be empty.

Remember the proposed Known Football Hooligan passport stamps and orders in the UK? Remember how that actually happened, and violent hooligans were barred from entering the nation hosting the World Cup and forced to surrender their passports and travel documents to their local police stations before the World Cup began?

Good times.
