Not only do fans have to take the course if they want to come back to the stadium, they have to pay for it, too. Costs vary by team. The Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons charge the least at $50, while the New England Patriots charge a league-high $100. When a fan completes the course, Novick's company forwards that information to the club.

OK when one of you drunken maniacs gets thrown out of a game for being a drunken maniac Ill take and pass the course for you for $100 over the cost of taking the course. That way you wont waste 4 hours of your life listening to yet another do gooder trying to changr your ways just so you can use your season tickets. And I can earn some money.

MattyFridays: The only think I like about the experience is tailgating,


Try going to a NASCAR race. The tailgating there is really fun and laid back.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Back in the day you could stay in the parking lot chugging the beer you brought from home until 15 minutes before kickoff and still make it to your seat in time.

Now? You better be in line an hour early to make kickoff, and if you want a beer or a snack, well, wouldn't you know it that the stadium just happens to SELL such items at a mere 5,000 percent markup?


Where do you go to watch games? I've never spent more than an hour getting from my car to my seat at an NFL game unless I park somewhere else and take public transportation to the arena.

I love the NFL. However, I will never go to a game. Unlike hockey and major college football, it is better watched at home or at the bar.

Triumph: Wow, sounds like TrapWire has already been selling the NFL. So let me see if I've got this straight: We get frisked going into the game and can't carry in so much as a bottle of water; then we have to get by the facial recognition screening before we can get to our seats and proudly sing a song about living in the land of the free and the home of the brave?


Dirty little secret about fan ejections in North America is that they really have no way of knowing if you come back. The ejection, right now, is little more than a mechanism to make charges stick if they stumble across you again for whatever reason. In your rowdier soccer nations, they have a more urgent interest in actually keeping the fans they kick out, out. The way they do that is with facial recognition. Just like in the casinos. It's just being considered for the NFL now is all.

The_Sponge: Damn it so much. When I went to a Seahawks game last season, the security line too way too long......were talking worse than the average TSA security line at Seatac International Airport.


Obligatory

FTA: Skeptics might wonder how teams are going to keep track of ejected fans from week to week. Ray DiNunzio, the NFL's director of strategic security, told ESPN the monitoring will vary by team but could at some point involve facial recognition technology.
