The Green Bay Packers don’t think they have a fan behavior problem, but they’re asking ticket-holders to be more proactive in identifying people who are making things uncomfortable for everyone around them.

“If we don’t get the feedback during the game, it’s hard to take action,” said Jason Wied, vice president of administration and general counsel, who is encouraging fans to report unruly behavior to stadium personnel.

Wied said the Packers’ enhanced fan code of conduct is consistent with a league-wide policy to crack down on boorish fan behavior, acknowledging at the same time that the fan experience at Lambeau Field is better than most stadiums.

He said the team would continue its policy of halting beer sales at the end of the third quarter – a league policy – since problems with drunken fans has indicated they were inebriated before they entered the stadium.

Wied also said most fan behavior problems have involved ticket-holders who aren’t season ticketholders but those who bought them from a particular game.

Wied said season tickets can be revoked permanently if problems persist.
