Sports fans have been getting a bit rowdy lately. At least one professional sports league has come up with a way to let fans know that they’re on the verge of being booted out of the arena.
You are being issued a warning that the comments, gestures and/or behaviors that you have directed at players, coaches, game officials and/or other spectators constitute excessive verbal abuse and are in violation of the NBA Fan Code of Conduct. This is the first and only warning that you will receive. If, after receiving this warning, you verball abuse any player, coach, game official or spectator, you will be immediately rejected from the arena without refund.
Per ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the NBA said they’ve been giving out these cards since 2005.
