Browns fans encouraged to report rowdies via text message

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns are trying to make games more family friendly and have asked people to report unruly fans by text-messaging the club with the seat location.

At Sunday's home opener, Browns fans got their first look at new signs encouraging people to respect the Browns' tradition, games and other fans.

The Browns also posted requests that people send text messages identifying sections where they see misconduct during the game.

The Browns call the effort "Home-Field Advantage" and say it's aimed at making the stadium more family friendly.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports 16 people were arrested on various charges at Sunday's game.

The Cincinnati Bengals have had a hot line for reporting unruly fans for several seasons.
