No Suds for Jets-Pats

Alcohol won't be sold during Monday night's game between the Jets and Patriots at the Meadowlands in an attempt to keep rowdy fans from acting like New Yorkers.

The ban comes after nine fans were arrested during the Jets-Saints game Nov. 27. One man was charged with stabbing two fans in a restroom, and a state trooper broke his leg while trying to eject a fan who reportedly threw a beer bottle.

"It's for precautionary reasons, to provide for the safety and comfort of our fans," said Jets spokesman Ron Colangelo.

Better yet, keep the "fans" from stabbing each other. Perhaps they could sell tickets to Steelers fans. They seem to be good for road games en mass.
