Man thrown out of Yankee Stadium for lack of patriotism?

I have never been there but have heard from more than one person about this sort of thing. They have been doing this for quite some time now. I'm surprised it took this long for somebody to file a lawsuit.

Good question. I don't know the ownership situation with that stadium enough to say. I always thought the Yankees owned it outright but if it "perpetrated" by city cops then maybe thats his hook.

I like to stay and debate the issue, but I just spillied a cup of coffee in my crotch and I am pretty sure it ILLEGALLY hot. Where the hell did I put Johnny Cochran's number?

my first impression is that while the yankees can attach conditions to the tickets they sell to the open public such as fan conduct, cursing, fighting etc. i highly doubt that there is a "must stay and stand for god bless america" printed on the ticket. the yankees could try to argue some clause/condition printed on the ticket about "fan conduct" but that would be ambiguous at best to apply to the "GBA" song, any ambiguity in a contract is construed against the contract drafter, ie the yankees.

i hope this guy wins, he should. just b/c 9/11 happened in NYC doesnt mean they get to enforce more stringent patriotic rules over say detroit or LA.

the real krink in this is that the yankees privately own the staduim, its not city owned by any fraction to my understanding so attaching constitutional rights may be tricky but do-able under a quasi-government interest argument or some "open to public" invitation that by law cant be restricted to only people willing to stand during "GBA".

should ne interesting to follow. not nearly as interesting as how the hell did balt city mayor get transcripts of the GJ indictment filed against her a week after the GJ indictment came down. it is very clear that a crim def does not get to see GJ testimony of anyone until right after a particular person who testified at the GJ session testifies in the criminal trial. sheila dixon stinks to high heaven like a rat.

go skins!!

Good points.

I do think that even if it's private, you paid for a ticket to watch a game, and as such you are entitled to something in return. I don't think he got what he paid for, and his behavior did not warrent dismissal.

I'm baffled. This guy was just going to the bathroom during "God Bless America"? I'd imagine hundreds, maybe thousands of others were out of their seats, buying beer, using the bathroom, etc.. during that time as well.... Did the news story leave something out? Was he being rowdy, verbally abusive or doing something that would have gotten anyone thrown out of a stadium or arena, whether the song was playing or not? ... If a large percentage of our citizens don't care or are too afraid to object to a person being thrown out of a stadium, just for using the bathroom during "God Bless America", then this is just another example of how far 9/11 has really set us back.

another frivolous law suit. no wonder our court system is bogged down. if he doesn't like the way he was treated, don't go to any more games. its pretty simple

The coffee was hotter than what is allowed to be served out and fused her clothing into the skin of her "crotchal region" .. we're not talking about a lil blister and red spot here

but yeah she was still stupid
