Sports fans in Los Angeles have to behave now! The city enforce a new code of conduct with guidelines for game day behavior. The code of conduct will apply at every venue where professional or college sports are played. Every professional sports league has a fan code of conduct and teams have their own policies.
The new Southern California code won’t replace those, but it will add to the rules that are already in place. The council created a task force to issue guidelines for fan behavior when it became a major issue after the beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium last year.
The code addresses security and safety issues but also urges fans to refrain from disruptive and unruly behavior. The guidelines include no swearing, no fighting and no throwing objects or drinks. People who violate the code could be ejected or arrested.
There are rumors that if this all works out, venues across the country will start doing the same thing. I think it’s a great idea, should Detroit jump on board now?
