Some rowdy fans never learn.
The Patriots on Monday announced they have identified the spectator who threw a beer at Tyreek Hill and flipped off the Chiefs wide receiver during Sunday night’s game, adding that the individual has been banned from future games at Gillette Stadium.
The team cited a violation of “the fan code of conduct” in a “letter of disinvite” sent to the fan.

With New England holding a 40-33 lead with three minutes remaining in the game, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes hit Hill for a 75-yard game-tying touchdown. Hill then ran to the wall behind the end zone, where he was doused with beer and given the bird.

Hill put on an impressive performance as he finished with seven receptions for 142 yards and three touchdowns.
Still, the Patriots eventually secured a 43-40 win off the foot of Stephen Gostkowski, who made the game-winning field goal for New England as time expired.
