Everyone: I apologize for not working on the site. I am working on a new site: I just started it, so it'll probably be awhile before it's up and running. But it'll definitely be better! Thanks for your patience.


Stop! Fan Hysteria

Fans, do you care about the safety of other fans and the team, athlete, band or celebrity you admire? As fans, whether you are a sports fan or a music fan or a movie fan, I urge you to put one of the banners below on your fan site. By doing so you will be supporting the "Stop! Fan Hysteria" campaign. This campaign is designed to do just that: stop the fanatical hysteria that occurs at entertainment and sporting events and in general.

What is meant by fanatical hysteria? Any behavior that has the potential to cause injury or death. This includes:

Fans have been injured and/or have died as a result of the behavior mentioned above. By placing a banner on your site and linking it back here, you are saying you will not engage in such behavior and you support awareness of this issue.

I'm NOT saying don't have fun. Sure, have fun, get crazy, get excited, get loud, get in the mosh pit, whatever....just don't get DANGEROUS!
