Dawg Pound Member Ejected For Standing Up Too Much

Rob Stipe was kicked out of the Dolphins-Browns game last Sunday for a violation of the Browns fans’ code of conduct: standing too much.

He’s a 35 year-old season ticket holder and member of the Dawg Pound was warned once before they kicked him out. He missed the comeback against Miami.

The society we live in and the economy we live in makes me wish the NFL did more to encourage things like tailgating and getting involved in the game. It’s so spontaneous and I think the real problem are the people sitting directly behind him, spending hundreds on tickets and parking yet disinterested in actually experiencing the game. It’s pretty sad to see – in a section that is meant to cater to the most rabid of fans – someone forced to exit for “excessive standing”.
