Stadium Jail

Our vote for the worst fans in the NFL rests with the Philadelphia Eagles.  You might think that pelting Santa with snowballs would land you on the permanent naughty list, but back in 1997 when an Eagles fan fired a smuggled flare gun across the field and dozens of fights broke out, they needed a serious deterrent.  They built a courtroom and a jail inside Veterans Stadium to dispense quick justice, hefty fines, and the revocation of season tickets.  This continued for several years until cases had tapered off and a new stadium was built.  You can read more details at the link below.
