I would have gone with "F-E-E-T, Feet, Feet, Feet"

Alan beat me to the punch. What struck me was the potential for some very interesting cheering-speech issues at this game; this is the sort of thing that fans will be unable to resist. How are the Bears and the NFL going to handle the inevitable signs, t-shirts, chants, etc. that are going to be about feet, foot fetishes, FOOTball, "Can I smell them," and everything else that this type makes possible for obnoxious and possibly drunk fans? What if (as one blogger suggested) the PA folks plays "Footloose" when the Jets take the field?


If it is done so intentionally and without approval I would think they would be fired, like the situation with Cam Newton above. Maybe it would only be a fine or some other discipline since it is at the professional level.
