::doh::


The NFL is shrink-rapping football fans.

Unruly fans booted from stadiums this year will be required to pass a code-of-conduct exam — or they won’t be allowed back in for another game.

The idea was hatched by a licensed psychotherapist, The New York Post has learned.

“We’re not trying to squash anyone’s passion. We’re just trying to say don’t be violent,” said Dr. Ari Novick, the Californian who’s the brains behind the program.

Requirements will vary depending on the stadium, but most of the time the stadium louts will have to pass the test before being allowed back in, he said.

Remember in the good old days when assholes just got beaten up? That seemed to keep the asshole population in check.

And the next test came during the next home game. If the guy was still an asshole he was getting knocked around again.

I know it subconciously has something to do with the product being such garbage here for the last 15 years, but NFL football is my least favorite of all the sports to see live and in person.

Between the sterile atmosphere, no one being aloud to stand up anymore, colder weather, idiots that can't handle their alcohol, and 20 minute lines to take a leak ... I'd much rather watch the NFL at home. NBA and NHL are amazing sports to watch from the lower bowl. Baseball is so great to watch in person for all the obvious reasons.

Watching NFL football live has just gotten shittier and shittier for the last 25 years.

I can't argue it at all. Which is why I went to fewer games each year, eventually split tix and then this year simply sold them. I'll keep them in my name and get them if and when it's warranted but it's not worth the money for tix and the parking to enjoy only the tailgating.

I lost my season tickets when my buddies company got bought out. Coulda easily chased them, but then I figured if I wanna sit in poor weather, have a far worse view, and be surrounded by douchebags, I could probably find a way to do it for free.

Used to feel like if I said the above I was coming off as better than others, and Christ, I know that's not the truth - we're all gonna wind up in the same f-ing hole one day. Just really sick of the "lifers" down there - which by the way, know jack-shit about the game.

Classic story - and I'm sure one of many like it, since I lost count of how many times someone from the bleachers kicked it, only to be memorialized the next week with some sort of stuffed animal on the seat, with a note attached - apparently in some sort of broken English. Anyway, kid a year younger than my brother in our neighberhood ran his car into a tree coming from a Browns game. DOA. My dad goes to the funeral, tells me "you shoulda seen his friends, thought they were gonna jump into the casket, a real sad scene." Well, guess who filled up an entire row about 12 rows in front of me - those 6 friends. So drunk each and every game they could hardly stand by halftime.

Used to love football Sunday, going down there. Now, freebies in good weather, good seats, against a good team - and I'll consider it. Maybe.

And haven't even broached the topic of the Browns patheticness yet.

The NFL is the only sport I care for, so it's my only option. We have a pretty big group that tailgates together every game. I still enjoy it. Moved down to the lower bowl this year which will help. Walking the ramps blows and your retard level drops considerably when you leave the 500's.

I still love going, so there's one vote.

I'm with you. Tailgating by itself is an event. I might even be happy tailgating and then sitting outside the stadium watching the game on a TV in an RV.

But all we need is a couple seasons of important late season games and no one will mind packing that stadium in shitty weather.

The NBA is dead to me and baseball games are pleasant, but most games I really couldn't give a shit if the Indians win or not, so I'm not emotionally invested the way I am with football.

So it's not even close as to which games I enjoy the most.

As a sports fan. I've discovered that the two better places to catch games are either in a minor league teams (Aeros, Monsters, etc), or at an IndyCar event. Tribe and Cavs also get it. two of the better run teams imo for that.

Both are usually run by friendly people, and allow you to just be in more of a relaxed environment. Hell, even though you're paying a pretty high price for an indy car ticket at times, they try to make it up to you by having some very fan friendly events mixed in.

I've yet to really see the Browns nail that though. Even at training camp, which is one of the easiest things in the world to manage, they've found various ways to hire a-holes in terms of security and ushers.

You mix that in with the fact that the product on the field flat out, sucks?

Terrible.

I see it this way: Football is a really hot hooker that's great in bed, but man, she's expensive and she's a real bitch. Every other sport is kind of homely prostitute that isn't really that good in the sack, but she's real nice and friendly.

It comes down to what parts of the experience are important to you.

I like the analogies; unfortunately neither works for Browns football. Perhaps there is a third option, like gay midget porn? So horrifying that you really can't watch but do anyway just for the depravity, but then afterwords you hate yourself even more than usual.

Totally get what everyone is saying here and agree with it. But I do feel like winning has just about everything to do with the overall experience of an NFL game. Went to the JAX game this past November, second row endzone opposite Dawg Pound, and what a game. No problem with any drunks or plain old idiots, just a genuine great game that finished right in front of me as time expired. Now, I understand that was pure luck that I had that great experience. But if the Browns put better product out on that field, I think every game could great. It's when they truly blow that people add misery to their drunkenness and it gets ugly and annoying.

Went from season ticket holder to one game per year.

After that yearly experience I quickly remember why I stopped being a season ticket holder.

My son enjoys the concessions & souvenirs....and the x-rated t-shirts by the street vendors are really cool.

He then questions me all the way home on why we are Brown's fans.

11 year olds are tuff to fool these days.

* The Browns have been good for our tourism industry as many visiting team fans travel to Cleveland as a cheap getaway to visit the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame & watch their team kick our asses as they treat our stadium like their sandbox.

Biased or not, it is inarguable that the gameday experience at an NBA or NHL game is VASTLY superior to an NFL game. And that is despite Gilbert doing his best to make you deaf with his shitty DJs. The sports just play far better live.

The NFL really is a shitty sport to watch live. If tailgating means that much to you I recommend these things they call "bars" where you can drink with other people as well.

And, yeah, The Cavs do have one of the worst stadium experiences in the league (even with LBJ).

Its pretty much a template based "experience". Same stupid shit. Same mind numbing atmosphere afraid to let the sport carry it self.

Nope, the Cavs are pretty much the worst, Gilbert started his whole shitty gameday experience to appeast LBJ and has kept it (just like he has kept the worst announcing duo in the history of sports on his TV crew).

And regardless, watching the best athletes in the world from close distance is roughly 100x better than binoculars and template white sterility at an NFL game.

Not really, the NFL is just a fundamnetally far superior sport to watch on TV v. attending.

I mean fuck, the 500 TV timeout alone ruin the game and that doesn't even get into the hospital like sterilization and generally sucky field views.

Fuck, I feel really uncomfortable agreeing with him on two topic simultaneously.

The NFL is an awful sport to watch live. I went to 6-8 games a year when I was in Cleveland. Sitting on my couch getting drunk watching on my TV or pounding wings and 22 oz. drafts at a local bar is far better for so many reasons.

I actually think the NHL might be the best major sport to watch in person. But the NBA is clearly better than the NFL. Its not really even close. Constant shitty music blaring or not...

Well Hik.....it is entirely possible your kid is smarter than mine......and highly probable I have failed in getting the Brown's storied history across( it is not uncommon for me to fail at things, although in life I'd probable be considered "serviceable" ;), but in his/ my defense you must recognize the Brown's have done NOTHING to help in this matter and his generation ( and relative youth) really doesn't give a rats ass about Otto, Jimmy, or Bill Nelson, Warfield, Collins or Kelly. The kids today are more about the "now."

Now this is not a continuous ongoing debate. It rarely comes up, but raises its ugly head say when he has a bad day .......getting sacked in the backfield 16 times as QB on his little league football team.....going 2-14 from the floor as point guard for his b-ball team...and I climb his frame...."constructively"......we watch the Browns get the piss kicked out of them on a routine basis......his entire life.

I give my kid credit for dealing with the abuse. See we live in the outpost town, Youngstown, which has gone Black & Gold. He gets shit...well every day . It's ugly here. He has all the Browns gear and wears it proudly. Our conversations are quiet and between father & son. I share them with you caus we are friends and gotta stick together.

I have explained the Steelers were won in a poker game & the Rooney's were moonshiners. The toothless bastards were the doormats for 40 years, we've won more world championships than they have. Chuck ( John Carroll)and Cowher were Browns. The Steelers cut Johnny U & Lenny Dawson for Christ sake. The Steelers always were dirty and get all the calls. Their 70's team were juicin before juice was in. Holmes shot at a state police chopper and never missed a game.......you try shooting at a state police chopper sometime.

We been to the Hall of Fame. He is all in. He wants to believe. He drinks the kool-aide. I have been saying "next year" , wait till you see who we get in the draft, and this guy can coach.....his whole life.

My kid has heard all the morale stories about "patience", hard work, appreciates history, God, family, and the good old USA. He knows nothing worth anything come quick or easy. He has seen sacrifice, believe me on this
one and knows there are a whole lotta things in life more important than sports. He's done pretty well too, honor roll, blah, blah,blah.


So Hik, you got anything to add that worked so well that "one" time that convinced your kid I'd love to use it. But I also taught my kid to question life, make informed decisions, you know the drill...he also knows insanity is repeating the same painful mistakes over and over. See my dilema?

Me too.

But in Cleveland and in 20+ other NBA arenas across the country the "NBA Experience" is basically a Rock & Jock cd played at 11 and really shitty play from the home team.

At least it's quieter at CBS and I can hear myself cry :hide:

I know you've got an axe to grind with gilbert. but that take, I really disagree with.

Yeah the whole sign making thing can be a bit cheesey, but I like how they run things there.

They seem to actually give a shit about their season ticket holders from what I've seen, and their promotion is pretty solid. I mean, considering the fact Cleveland is far from a Basketball town during the lean years, I'd say they've done a good job.

Of course, to perhaps back your argument, my main negative experiences with a sports franchise have come by way of the Browns and their set up. So it could be that the Browns have made me so jaded that someone not giving me a poke in the eye looks amazing in comparison.

I've also never seen a Celtics game, Lakers, OKC, etc. So I have no clue what the rest of the NBA looks like in terms of atmospherics, promotion and how their arena is. So again, that could be preventing me from seeing the whole picture as well.

You can hear yourself think in most NBA arenas. The Cavs are terrible and take the jock rock bullshit to the 20th level (it has been this way since LBJ's boy was made DJ).

Their entire presentation is ridiculous, loud and disgusting, ranging from Austin Carr to their stadium DJ.

I went to a game I think two seasons ago here in Nashville at LP Field, the one against the Redskins where Vince Young threw his equipment in the stands. We had some clowns in front of us who were blitzed before they got to the game. They keep verbally fighting and turning around and yelling at the people a row behind us. Apparently they are season ticket holders, because they kept standing up on every play, and we told to sit down by literally everyone around us the one woman in the group told the people to shove it you know where/threatened to fight them and said "I own these seats, I can do whatever I want in them". I can understand standing up on important plays, but really on every play? That's classless imo, and too, they don't "own the seats", they just own the license to use the seats they buy every home game, there are still rules. I was surprised they weren't ejected because of how crass they were being, but it made the whole experience stupid. Like I said, I can understand standing up on important plays but on every freaking play? Have some class people.

It rarely comes up, but raises its ugly head say when he has a bad day .......getting sacked in the backfield 16 times as QB on his little league football team.....going 2-14 from the floor as point guard for his b-ball team...and I climb his frame...."constructively"......we watch the Browns get the piss kicked out of them on a routine basis......his entire life.

I give my kid credit for dealing with the abuse. See we live in the outpost town, Youngstown, which has gone Black & Gold. He gets shit...well every day . It's ugly here. He has all the Browns gear and wears it proudly. Our conversations are quiet and between father & son. I share them with you caus we are friends and gotta stick together.

I have explained the Steelers were won in a poker game & the Rooney's were moonshiners. The toothless bastards were the doormats for 40 years, we've won more world championships than they have. Chuck ( John Carroll)and Cowher were Browns. The Steelers cut Johnny U & Lenny Dawson for Christ sake. The Steelers always were dirty and get all the calls. Their 70's team were juicin before juice was in. Holmes shot at a state police chopper and never missed a game.......you try shooting at a state police chopper sometime.

We been to the Hall of Fame. He is all in. He wants to believe. He drinks the kool-aide. I have been saying "next year" , wait till you see who we get in the draft, and this guy can coach.....his whole life.

My kid has heard all the morale stories about "patience", hard work, appreciates history, God, family, and the good old USA. He knows nothing worth anything come quick or easy. He has seen sacrifice, believe me on this
one and knows there are a whole lotta things in life more important than sports. He's done pretty well too, honor roll, blah, blah,blah.


So Hik, you got anything to add that worked so well that "one" time that convinced your kid I'd love to use it. But I also taught my kid to question life, make informed decisions, you know the drill...he also knows insanity is repeating the same painful mistakes over and over. See my dilema?


It is hard for kids to root for losers, I get that. But I asked them if they would root for the Chinese to beat the US in the Olympics in an event where the Chinese were clearly superior.

I asked them if they would root against their school in football/basketball if they were playing a team that was clearly superior.

I asked them if they would root for the bully that was beating up their friend if the bully were clearly stronger/tougher.

Then I talked about integrity and loyalty and not being a frontrunner. And how frontrunners make me sick. "You're not from Pennsylvania, you're from Ohio". And how I only saw one decent season from the Browns until I was 14, so if I could take it, so could they.

And I've taught them unreasonable hatred for the Steelers since Day One.

Since I've made such a big deal about it, likely one of them will go against me one day just to piss me off. Then they can go live with their mother.

On a side note, I also let them know that they could choose another team to root for each year to satisfy their desire to root for a team with a pulse, so long as they didn't root for them against the Browns and so long as it wasn't ever the Steelers.

Well Hik.....it is entirely possible your kid is smarter than mine......and highly probable I have failed in getting the Brown's storied history across( it is not uncommon for me to fail at things, although in life I'd probable be considered "serviceable" ;), but in his/ my defense you must recognize the Brown's have done NOTHING to help in this matter and his generation ( and relative youth) really doesn't give a rats ass about Otto, Jimmy, or Bill Nelson, Warfield, Collins or Kelly.

That's deep.

Anytime I saw any NFL gear in the crib other than Browns I just threw it away. I told him when he was 3 if he rooted for the Inbred he'd have to move out. He got the message.

My daughter flirted with being one of those people for a while. I told her I wouldn't pay or show up at her wedding if she kept it up. That worked, too.


My only issue is she's in puppy love with Colt and I hate to see her disappointed.

Hik & JB,

I like it.

I have done my part to instill undue rage and rampant hatred towards the Steelers.

I used the "money" analogy once......I asked him if he liked Lincoln,Grant, Washington, Jackson, Benjamin, & Hamilton...he said yes. I being the deep mature parent said something like..."well, hell they been dead for over a hundred years....haven't done anything for us lately....you don't see us changing the faces on the money do you?........he shook his head no, smiled, pulled an inner tube tire up over his elbow and donned his "Sipe" throwback jersey and headed into the abyss....( Southern Park Mall)

Please. If you could actually stop a child from liking something my 17-yr old would have never had a boyfriend in her life.

They'll like what they like. And if you make more of a difference on their opinions than others they'll follow who you follow.

Being tapped on the shoulder and asked to sit down at a Browns game was a creepy feeling. Not sitting and being told he could have me thrown out of the stadium gave me the douche chills. Looking around at the 40-50 year old men around me who looked nervously away and sat throughout the rest of game was sickening.

Pretty sure there's a bigger, society wide theme to what Browns Staduim has transformed into, but I'll leave it at I won't step foot in there again.

eO-yo,

In so many things in life we would agree (scary.....for us both) ; although repeatedly dislocating your humerus to the point of unable to repair and "strengthening" the circumferentiating muscles as a fix....well bros we do part ways there....whew. Dude you are either one tough Raider or your ascending and descending pathways are not functioning correctly.

He is an independent thinker and honestly would never turn to "those that worship at the confluence." He is only 11, and his 2nd team is the Patriots. Too much history, roots too deep, time is his only ally. It will always be Browns, Cavs, Tribe, and Buckeyes.

Now you will be proud to know I did direct him correctly in hockey..he has basked in the Redwing success over the years, so he has experienced professional championships much to the chagrin of his Pixburg buds.

the problem is...that the folks they hire are from an outside company, and not directly hired from the Browns.

A lot of the better run orgs. in the city, go that route and hire directly. Things are easier to control, and easier to manage in that case.

Also, quit hiring dickheads. I've met a couple of the old muni-lot level Browns ushers from back in the day, and they were pretty cool guys, some ex-cops, and knew how to handle managing a football game in Cleveland. There's ways of handling a crowd without acting like the damn gestapo.

(And not the Steelers part; I'm sure he's a fan of anything that heaps further misery on Browns fans.)

Naw, I actually had this argument with my dad a week ago.

You are a dick if you force your kid to like the Browns.

For two reasons:

1) as a father your role should be anything but forcing a taste down the throat of your child

2) and they are the fucking Browns

Be a real man and support your kid cheering for whoever he or she wants to cheer for. Embrace them growing in that way.

Between the sterile atmosphere, no one being aloud to stand up anymore, colder weather, idiots that can't handle their alcohol, and 20 minute lines to take a leak ... I'd much rather watch the NFL at home. NBA and NHL are amazing sports to watch from the lower bowl. Baseball is so great to watch in person for all the obvious reasons.

Watching NFL football live has just gotten shittier and shittier for the last 25 years.


Funny you should pick 25 years, Swerb...

This will be my 25th year as a season ticket holder (I have missed about six home games since 1988) and I can surely relate to the shittier and shittier feeling. I might well have given up the seats by now if my wife weren't so insistent that we not quit while we're down. (She hasn't missed a single game since '99...if we were "up" of course, we wouldn't quit either)

It gets old going down there to freeze our asses off and watch a dog shit product, walking a mile from the parking spot each way, and paying full price for August exhibition farces. We're fortunate in our area not to have to deal too much with alcohol-addled assholes...that's not an issue. I just increasingly feel like a total sucker for sending these bozos my money every May. We joke with the guys who have sat near us for 14 years that we really need to get the "L" tattooed on our foreheads if we put up with this shit for one more year.

As far as the actual product being a compelling event to see live, I maintain that if there were a habitually competitive team on the field, the product is still far better than any NBA game ever...and I have seen NBA games in several venues...yawn. The Steelers game on Thursday night two years ago was awesome to attend in person, even though it was about 10 degrees out. But those days are so fucking few and far between, since like 1989.

One word about standing up. We're in the second row off the field so it's not a big issue for us...and I try like hell never to be "that guy"...the 50-something lifer being disparaged upthread for not cheerfully agreeing to a)stand for three hours because some bozo attending his first ever game, with a dozen beers in him decides the only good fan is the one standing up and screaming...because after all, it's 3rd and 6, and what's the matter with you people? (the answer is that we were sitting here being disappointed while you were still breastfeeding) ....or b)accepting the fact that he won't see what he paid 75 bucks to see unless he also stands up every time said bozo and his buddies want to stand for a quarter or two.

I hate with a passion the administrative "cleansing" of bad fan behavior. I detest the "text fan misconduct to 76543" messages on the scoreboard, and the Carmen Policy closed circuit, big brother cameras ever since the "bottle game". It's a different world we live in today from the crowds (and teams) I grew up loving in the 60's...when every fan in the whole place would stand and scream every time Jim Brown took a handoff, sensing the strong possibility that we were about to see a touchdown.

It's getting worse...but not enough (yet) for me to quit. I'd somehow feel like "they" won...without even knowing who "they" are. I'm also afraid they'll finally have that breakout year...and I won't be there.

Kinda tired of a lot of the 'they're losing a generation' thing. I was born in 1966. Aside from one year in 1980 my generation endured the same shitty football. I was 14 then when the Kardiac Kids stuff happened. As if it was anything other than divisional playoff game. I was about 20 when Bernie and the boys lost 2 straight. That's all she wrote. WY I see it my 11 yr old is ahead of the game and my two older ones are no worse off than I was. My kids watch Tribe/Cavs/Browns because I do. If they don't want to watch it that's fine. I think with kids it's about finding a reason to hang more with dad and they grow into the fandom part.

Maybe not.

^^^^^^^^^^^

You are right, but at least 'your generation" had one of the more exciting years of Browns football in the Super Bowl Era. While "my generation" had the Bernie years. And even though they didn't even make a Super Bowl those teams will make fans for life.

What does the next generation have? What does Triple-S's generation have? A year of LeRoy Hoard running hard, making us temporarily forget that he was from scUM? Hoard catching a TD on his back? Metcalf's two returns? Run Willie Run and backing into the playoffs? 6 good games from DA? All this plus The Move and all of the losing that has followed. This is not the stuff that makes life long fans.

I really don't know, but my 7 year old daughter has no idea the Browns exist or the NFL for that matter. My area is heavily into the Steelers and she could care less about them, but she wants to go to the Shoe and see a game.
