Jaguars ban four fans for throwing objects at Seahawks

A number of fans won’t be welcome back at EverBank Field after their outbursts on Sunday.

The Jaguars on Monday announced that officials have banned four fans from the stadium for throwing objects towards Seahawks players during the team’s Week 14 game.

While no players will be suspended for the brawl that was ignited near the end of Jacksonville’s 30-24 win, the four fans will not be allowed to attend future events at the stadium and could have their season tickets revoked after authorities determined five objects, including “plastic cups with ice and liquid, a bag of popcorn and a plastic bottle,” were tossed onto the field.

The team did not disclose if the fans were responsible for harassing Quinton Jefferson following his ejection. The Seahawks defensive end was held back by security as he attempted to climb into the seating area after objects were thrown at him on his way to the locker room.

“We’re grateful for the immediate response by stadium security personnel to the situation,” the team said in the statement, via USA Today. “The Jacksonville Jaguars and our stadium partners are firmly committed to creating a safe and enjoyable experience for all who visit EverBank Field, including fans and members of the visiting team.

“It is unfortunate that the actions of a few would tarnish the reputation of the Jaguars fan base and the positive, electric game day atmosphere at yesterday’s game.”

Despite the ban, no criminal charges have been filed against the fans.
