What could be worse for a die-hard New England Patriots fan than a lifetime ban from Gillette Stadium? Not much if you believe the comments from my friends that root for the Pats.
Well that's the exactly the sentence handed down to a 21 year-old New England fan who threw a beer at Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill following a touchdown on Sunday.
According to the website 12up
, the fan threw the beer in Hill's face as he approached the stands. He has now been charged with disorderly conduct and throwing an object at a sporting event. And he's banned from Gillette Stadium for life.
The Boston Herald reported that a few Patriots fans also made obscene gestures at Hill. The sad part for most fans...it was all caught on camera by NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Not a good look for a team who battles national image issues as cheaters and cry babies. But it is what it is I suppose. I'm just grateful that swift and immediate action was taken to punish the person who threw the beer.
