The AP reports:
Alcohol won't be sold during Monday night's game between the Jets and Patriots at the Meadowlands in an attempt to quell rowdy fan behavior.
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.
Will banning alcohol sales really curtail these problems, or will people simply sneak flasks in? And is it fair to the thousands of people who want to enjoy a beer or two responsibly that a few people have taken away that privilege?

Extending the football season for the worst teams as well as the best, for no reason other than money? Your Scramble team marvels that the NFL hasn't yet stolen bowl season away from the NCAA.
