In case you hadn't heard

Those of you familiar with the fiasco at Gate D during halftime of Jets games may be interested in hearing that the team is at least attempting to stop the hyjinks there. Of course, given all the added publicity, the number of idiots there for "the show" was even greater than usual this past week, thus overwhelming the additional security that was brought in for the event. For me this is no real surprise because honestly, take 32000 men, add 3-4 beers per guy, shake well and then tell them there's a good possibility of seeing boobs within easy walking distance and this sort of thing is going to happen. It doesn't happen just at Gate D either. When I went to my first Cleveland Browns game (the first preseason game at the new stadium) I was sitting in the "Dawg Pound" with all the rowdies - and believe me, they were chanting for boobs* at women walking down the aisles to their seats during the game.

Anyway, the reason I find the whole thing interesting (as usual) has nothing to do with the original story. The original video showing the ridiculousness was posted on YouTube some time ago. Once that was leaked, various news outlets picked up the story. What is interesting is that the video is no longer available. Why? Because the NFL has claimed that the content of said video is copyrighted material and demanded it be taken down.

Seriously? The NFL has copyrighted flashing boobs? Since when? Don't you think they would have mentioned something about this when Girls Gone Wild was in its prime?

* Well, the term they used wasn't exactly "boobs" but it made for better chanting, having more than one syllable. Guesses anyone? Hint - it's kind of an odd euphanism...
