One Cleveland Browns fan’s days cheering for his favorite team will no longer be done at home games. A Browns fan who was accused of streaking across the field during a home game will no longer be able to attend home games after being banned from entering the property:
The 20-year-old Anthony Saveriano on Wednesday was notified of the team’s decision during his sentencing hearing in Cleveland Municipal Court.
Judge Lauren Moore found Saveriano guilty of a criminal trespassing charge and ordered him to clean up after tailgaters in the city’s municipal lot for four games this season. He’ll be on probation for one year and must pay a $200 fine and court fees.
This needs to be done more often. If a fan is willing to run onto a field and disrupt play, he shouldn’t be allowed to come to any more of those team’s games.
And yes, I’m also looking at you Bengals fan who stole the ball from Brett Favre, as hilarious as it was:
Again, fans like this need have the hammer laid on them so they can’t ever have a chance to interrupt games anymore.
Then again, by being banned from home games, that’s a lot of misery he won’t have to endure, and hopefully that includes a Bengals win on Sunday.
