Unruly fans/UC foul question
« on: September 11, 2018, 10:57:36 AM »
Small school varsity game.

Fans of Team A in their lawn chairs near 20 yd line, but 10 yds or so away from sideline (small field not very many places to sit).

Fan taunts Team B player after a play, who then retaliates with plenty of vulgarity & (heated game from the opening kickoff).

•Unsporstmanlike conduct foul on Team B player?
•Remove fan/s with Administrator?
•Unsporstmanlike conduct foul on Team A bench for fans (can that even be done)?

Any insight would be great!!!

Definitely use game admin to help you with the fans.  We also want a Incident Report.  Fans are not subject to rules as regards penalties but game can Be suspended until admin makes conditions safer.

Ah I see. What about a scenario where you have a fan/fans in the team area (not knowing they are fans) and they do the same? Would that UC foul be on the coaching staff and or bench?

Oh yeah, if coach lets them in there he is taking responsibility for them and they are now part of the team.  Team UNS

Anyone in team area is subject to game rules. Anyone not in team area is subject to administrative rules.

It would have to be really bad from the opposite team player to get a penalty if egged on like that. Don’t want to set the example of how to get cheap penalties on the other team.
