A Cleveland Browns fan who sprayed Tennessee Titans players with beer is facing an indefinite ban from the team.
Justice appears to have been served, as the Cleveland Browns fan who doused Tennessee Titans players with beer in Week 1 is facing an indefinite ban from the team.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Browns will rightfully take action against the fan, who has apparently identified, per a statement from the team.
"“This individual person’s action is not tolerated in our building as it is not reflective of our fan base or city,” the Browns said in a statement. “We’re currently addressing the situation internally, along with NFL Security, and we believe we have identified the person involved. He will ultimately face an indefinite ban from FirstEnergy Stadium for the unacceptable behavior, which is in clear violation of our Fan Code of Conduct.”"
In case you missed it, here’s a video of the incident in question. It occurred after Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler scored on a pick-six on a pass from quarterback, Baker Mayfield.
Titans players, which included Butler and fellow corner, Logan Ryan, jumped up on the wall beyond the back of the end zone to celebrate, only to be met by a beer shower from a classless fan.
Ryan took to social media after the incident and shared his dismay at the actions of the fan. The NFLPA picked up on it, reported it to NFL security, and action has now been taken.
Browns fans can argue until their blue in the face about whether or not the Titans players should have celebrated in that manner, but nothing gives any fan the right to do what that Browns fan did to the Titans’ players.
In other words, this fan deserves everything that’s coming to him, and hopefully this is a lesson to other fans out there who think doing this kind of disrespectful, disgusting thing is an acceptable way to act.
