NE Patriots?They had that same revolutionary war cannon when I was on the faculty there and they used it every game. I don't know if they've been using it at all home games since they built the new stadium, but it's been around awhile. We've been playing them in the Meadowlands and Yankee Stadium the past few years, so you wouldn't have seen it there.

Recently? First of all, it was in September of 2007, over 5 years ago. (Just a little bit has happened since then, so you might want to open a newspaper from time to time.) Secondly, it was a very small group of drunken students (less than 1% of the total fan base attending the game) who were doing the booing, and they were shouted down by the fans around them. The whole story was blown way out of proportion by the press. Branding an entire school and fan base for this incident is like saying everybody at West Point is a rapist because of the Karley Marquet and Annie Kendzior lawsuits.

With dozens of experiences on the RU campus, I'd have to say I've never seen such a large collection of unruly, violent, and reckless students.3. Your analogy to West Point Cadets is terrible.
