New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium

New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium | Sport Facility Management, AMU, 4242894 | Scoop.it

Via ESPN:

 

The NFL is getting more serious about conduct in the stands.

 

This year, its teams are requiring any fan who gets ejected from a stadium to take a four-hour online course before they are permitted to come back into the facility again.

 

The course, designed by psychotherapist Dr. Ari Novick in tandem with the MetLife Stadium security director Daniel DeLorenzi, focuses on alcohol abuse, anger management and crude behavior. A handful of teams have used the course over the past couple seasons, but this summer, as part of a review of their best practices, every team decided to enforce the course on offending fans this season.

 

Novick said when fans get ejected from a game this year, they will be sent a letter that encourages them to apologize to the team and complete the course. If they fail to meet the requirement, and they are caught on stadium property, they are told they could be arrested for trespassing.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Approximately 7,000 people were ejected from NFL stadiums last season. The number varied by team but some teams are known to be more strict in certain areas than others. The Oakland Raiders, for example, have a zero-tolerance policy for smoking. DiNunzio said the Raiders could eject up to 300 fans a game for lighting up...

Crown management one of the most under appreciated jobs there is. Standing on your feet for the duration of an event. Plus those who attend don't understand you are only enforcing rules governed by the stadium.

Dolphins CEO: We’d be stupid to spend our money on stadium, which is why we want to spend yours | Field of Schemes

Dolphins CEO: We’d be stupid to spend our money on stadium, which is why we want to spend yours | Field of Schemes | Sport Facility Management, AMU, 4242894 | Scoop.it

"It’s always special when somebody in the sports industry slips and says what they really think about the economics of stadiums. Via Miami Herald columnist Glenn Garvin (who is totally not only getting his name dropped because in the same article he called this site “informative if horrifying”), here’s whatMiami Dolphins CEO Mike Dees said on Sunday when asked if his team’s $200 million public subsidy request for renovations to its privately owned stadium isn’t just “welfare for billionaires”:

“Just because somebody is wealthy enough doesn’t mean he should invest money in a way that is unwise,” Dees declared.

As Garvin goes on to note: “He could hardly have been more straightforward: Unwise investments are strictly for the taxpaying saps. NFL and Major League Baseball owners certainly didn’t get to be billionaires by risking their own money on outlandishly expensive boondoggles. They use ours instead.”

We’ve heard this before in other cities — we can’t spend our own money on it, it’d be a huge money-loser —but somehow this seldom seems to translate into a realization that if a stadium (or a stadium renovation) can’t bring in enough new revenues to pay off its own costs, then somebody is inevitably going to end up losing money on the thing. But then, people seem to have trouble with this concept in general."

The Ryno's curator insight, February 15, 2013 12:20 PM

It isn't really shocking to hear Sports teams want someone else to foot the bill for stadium crap, it's just moronic for a team CEO to say it out loud. Even worse, the fact Dees suggests any stadium improvements are an "unwise investment" speaks volumes about the shadiness. 

Dorothy Hale's curator insight, April 15, 2013 11:43 AM

"Welfare for Billionaires" the honest trust sheds light on public subsidies.

The next Florida baseball stadium scheme: Tampa Rays unveil plan for new $577 million stadium (VIDEO) | Sport Facility Management, AMU, 4242894 | Scoop.it

Via WTSP:

 

St. Petersburg, Florida - Private developers pushing for a new Tampa Bay Rays stadium in the Carillon Park area say the price tag for a new ballpark could range from $424-million to $577-million.

 

But the developers, during a public presentation on Friday, were not willing to talk about how a new park might be financed.

 

Below however are some options that will likely be considered:

 

Selling the Trop

 

The first source of revenue for a new stadium could come from what happens with the Rays current home, Tropicana Field. Some have estimated the city could net as much as $50-million by selling the land the Trop sits on...

 

State Help

 

Another source of revenue for building a new park could be state money. As with other Major League Baseball stadiums, state money may not be used directly for stadium construction, but to pay for infrastructure costs like roads and possibly parking lots.

 

Bed Tax

 

A third source could be extending the county's bed tax. "There would be the potential for up to 90% of 1 of the 5-pennies that's currently collected in bed tax. But that would only occur after 2015 when the Trop is paid off," said Visit St.Pete/Clearwater Executive Director D.T. Minich.

 

Based on the current bed tax, that could bring in $5-million a year for a new stadium...
