The next time a fan is kicked out of an NFL stadium for being unruly, he or she will have to take a $75 four-hour online class and pass a code-of-conduct test for readmittance.

"We're not trying to squash anyone's passion. We're just trying to say don't be violent," Dr. Ari Novick, a licensed psychotherapist who developed the idea, told the New York Post.

Stadium requirements will vary across the league, but most of the time, a booted fan will be required to pass the conduct test, Novick said.

At MetLife Stadium, security chief Daniel DeLorenzi said about 25 fans are kicked out of the stadium at each Jets and Giants game. In order to combat a growing trend of unruly behavior, MetLife was the first, along with the New England Patriots' Gillette Stadium, to require completion of the class and test in 2010.

In New York, the rowdy fans also are required to write DeLorenzi a letter of apology. But he said about 25 percent of people will never take the class and are placed on the "unforgiven" list, which contains the name, photo and seat number of every fan who has been ejected.

The class is available at FanConductClass.com, and the taker must correctly answer at least 70 percent of the questions to pass.

Novick, the creator of the concept, takes $55 from the test fee, and the rest of the money is donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers

I didn't know you had to show an ID to get into a sporting event. Have your friend buy the tickets and enjoy. Who would ever waste 75 bucks when you can skirt the system so easily?

This is one of the gayest things I have ever read. If the person that was ejected wasn't violent, then who gives a garbage? So friggin pathetic...and that doucher that created this "test" is just trying to make a buck. Sickening.

This .... unless the person is a season ticket holder and isn't smart enough to trade tickets with somebody good luck enforcing this non-sense.

So the hacks at the gate are going to know every person on the blacklist and stop them from getting in?

Well it's a good thing that Mothers Against Drunk Drivers get money from this.  I couldn't think of anyone else that might need the money more... hungry children, women that get beaten on a daily basis, cancer patients, underfunded school districts...

Whatever... it isn't that much money anyways.  I suppose MADD is a good organization, but I just think the people listed above are more deserving.

     I know a dude that was kicked out of a Browns game for being too loud.  According to him he was cheering excessively and standing up too much.  Not using any foul language.  So they booted him.  He said he'll never step foot in that stadium or any other NFL stadium ever again.  I don't blame him one bit.

     I was at a Phi-Pit game in 2004 when my Steelers crushed the Eagles.  The Steelers got off to a great start and I was jumping up and cheering.  This guy in his mid to late 50s bitched at me.  He said he didn't pay for his ticket to look at my back.  I asked him when I could cheer and how often could I stand up.  He said he was going to get security and I told him not to bother, and that I would be happy to flag someone down.  He shut up.  If I had been thrown out, it would have my last game because I never would have come back.
