The B.C. Lions fan who ran onto the field Saturday night without his pants while wearing a Jon Jennings jersey has been banned from B.C. Place for one year, according to NEWS 1130 in Vancouver.
The man was hit hard by Lions defensive back Marcell Young, apprehended by security and escorted off the playing surface.
“We don’t want to encourage this kind of thing. Although these pranks may have seemed funny decades ago that it really isn’t something that is appropriate, I don’t think, in 2018,” Laura Ballance a B.C. Place spokesperson told CBC.
“I personally don’t think it’s a respectful thing to do for them and I know it’s not a respectful thing to do for all the families and people who came to enjoy a great football game and had that disruption. I don’t think it’s acceptable behaviour in this day and age and I personally don’t think it’s funny and I think a lot of people would agree with me on that.”
