Report: Oxford bans using bedsheets as banners
For decades now, fraternities on major college campuses have been using bedsheets to make homemade banners ahead of major college football games.
However, that will no longer be the case in Oxford, as that practice has been banned by the Oxford Board of Aldermen.
Per a report from OxfordEagle.com, the discussion has been going on for a while after an offensive sign directed at an opposing coach:
The discussion revolving banners began in the fall, because of specific banners that were flown during the football season. These banners included vulgar language directed at an opposing football coach.
Along with bed sheets, pennants, spinners, streamers and balloons are also not allowed to be flown as banners in specific residential areas around the city.
We’re sure folks in Oxford will find other ways to get their message across, but bedsheets won’t be allowed anymore ahead of Ole Miss football games.
