You still need to show potential damage to your company or reputation as at least one was off the clock. If anything, I'll bet this ham-fisted move backfires and costs them $$$.

It might if you are smoking a doobie in you car with a underage hooker doing the up and down while she drinks from a bottle of Crown. I think anything portraying employer negatively could be grounds for discipline including termination.

I can't drink at work off the clock. Drinking on site is against company policy sure seems like a similar situation could apply for CSC. The CSC employees only had access to Brady through their CSCemployment and the fact that they were working at reliant that day. They used their employment status as a means to do something that broke company policy, I'm not sure that on the clock matters

There is usually a restriction until you're out of uniform, not just finished with a shift.

Total overreaction by the front office instituting once again, draconian zero tolerance policies.

Taking out your frustrations for your sorry season on security guards after taking it out on young players is a sad and pathetic act by this team.
I fully support their policy. If they want an autograph or picture, go to the appropriate venue.

Do you always believe what you read?

You have to read between the lines and go through the BS and figure out stuff for yourselves. You have to learn how to sniff out BS garbage like "its company policy."

They were fired because the team was still angry over the loss and they see their own security guards taking pics with the guy who just kicked their asses and they got mad, took it out on lowly security guards and fired them.

Learn how to sniff out company line BS.

This is one of them.

SAD, VINDICTIVE, PATHETIC MOVE BY THIS FRANCHISE.
Sometimes you read what isn't there. This is not an unusual requirement for many companies, though some lesser punishment is common for a first offense.
