Authorities are planning to take new steps to curtail obnoxious behavior at the infamous Gate D at Giants Stadium, long-known for scores of male fans gathering there to demand that passing women expose their breasts. At Sunday's turnout, it seemed as if nothing had been done yet as more fans than usual congregated there, despite additional cops nearby, reports the New York Times.

The head of the New Jersey Senate, who weeks ago blasted fans' behavior, praised security despite the continued taunting, and said additional short-term measures, such as blocking access to some of the ramps, were planned for the Jets' final home game Dec. 30. Six men were removed from the Gate D area Sunday for badgering women—apparently for naught, since none was seen flashing. (More New York Jets stories.)
