The Jacksonville Jaguars took strong measures against two fans who were identified for throwing objects at Seattle Seahawks players after the December 10th game at EverBank Field. The Times-Union was able to receive upon request the final report of the incident from the Jaguars:

“It was concluded that four individuals threw objects onto the field,” the report stated. “Based on available video evidence, we were able to positively identify two of these individuals. All four individuals had relocated to a seat near the field wall toward the end of the game.”

The two banned fans weren’t season ticket holders and won’t be allowed to purchase tickets to Jaguars games for anytime in the future until further notice.

More from the Jaguars:

These two individuals have since received notice that due to the severity of the violation of the Fan Code of Conduct, they are banned indefinitely.”

This whole ordeal stemmed from a fight that occurred on the field between the Seahawks and the Jaguars. Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was tossed from the game as as he made his way towards the locker room a fan threw a bottle at his head. Jefferson would approach the fans and start yelling. He was first shuffled away then more debris came from the stands and Jefferson tried to scale the wall, where even more mayhem ensued.

Though no arrests were made, the Jaguars were able to figure out who the fans were who were involved by looking at the video. We knew that the Jaguars were going to take this situation seriously as they mentioned the fact shortly after the incident happened. 

Also throwing things at athletes after the game is bush league. You pull that nonsense, you ought ought be banned for life.
