NFL’s new fan code of conduct is no malarkey

August 12, 2008
Roger Goodell doesn’t have a beard or take a horse-and-buggy to work. But according to Internet reports, the NFL’s commissioner is Amish.
He must be to have come up with a fan code of conduct. The NFL hopes to — and I hope you’re sitting down — make it easier for families to attend games.
By easier I mean you won’t have to cover your kids’ ears, shield their eyes or wear a raincoat in case the guy next to you throws up after drinking 31 beers.
That sounds like a good thing. But when the policy was announced last week, you’d have thought the Raider Nation had been banished to Gitmo without a trial.
