Controlling the crowd with fines
January, 25, 2006
The SEC's strongman policy on crowd control got us thinking: How many other conferences penalize their members for fans storming the court?
The answer is only one, and that's after the third offense.
The SEC's penalties are pretty direct: $5,000 for the first offense; $25,000 for the second offense; $50,000 for the third offense.
