This place is horrible, people already yelling every time I stand up, am I not aloud to stand up for football game?😲🤔

Brittany Matthews @brittanylynne8

I was told if I stand they will call security and kick us out, can’t stand for your team? Some fans y’all are 😂🤔

Brittany Matthews @brittanylynne8

Gillette security came and got us and moved us to a safe place 🙌🏼 that’s how you know it was bad🤔🤔

There's a certain level of ribbing to be expected for visiting fans at NFL stadiums. But when that gets to the point of security needing to intervene, it goes beyond the pale. 

It's just sports, people. None of it actually matters. Sometimes, we'd all be better off remembering that fact.
