Patriots fan banned after spraying beer on Tyreek Hill
There are no thick rule books that come with being a fan. Common sense should rule the day. You don’t run onto the field, you don’t get physical with other fans, and you NEVER EVER throw anything at a player.
One cowardly Patriots fan violated this simplistic notion on Sunday night. With 3:30 left in the 4th quarter, Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill tied things up on an electrifying 75-yard score. His momentum pulled him toward the stands where he was flipped off and then more egregiously, sprayed with beer.

Hill kept his cool in the moment and in his postgame comments with reporters.
The Patriots, to their credit, took swift action and have banned this fan from events at Gillette Stadium.

Nicely done, Pats.
