Milwaukee Brewers fan Karen Eidem wanted to express her disdain for shamed outfielder Ryan Braun on Wednesday night. So she modified her Braun shirt to read "Fraud" -- an emphatic statement, for sure, but hardly offensive by most measures. But, she said, Brewers security felt otherwise, telling her she either had to turn the shirt inside out or leave the game; she chose the former but wasn't happy. Now the team has issued a statement, saying security was wrong for stifling speech, and offering Eidem another ticket for her troubles.


Right call?

The Brewers now say no "line was crossed" by Eidem, and she deserves to see another game.

Should teams police nonviolent fan behavior (e.g., profanity, gestures) at sporting events?
