Report: Alabama Fan Fired from Construction Crew at Texas A&M for Hanging Flag
An Alabama fan was reportedly fired today for hanging a Crimson Tide flag from the side of Texas A&M’s football stadium.
Kyle Field is undergoing a $450 million renovation project that will result in it becoming the largest SEC stadium for the 2014 season. As construction continues in earnest as the first game rapidly approaches, a photo surfaced this morning of an Alabama flag hanging off the stadium.

Until this weekend an Alabama fan was a crane operator working on the renovations to Texas A&M’s Kyle Field. Then he put an Alabama flag on the side of the stadium.
The reaction to the lighthearted act seems a bit harsh, but we’ve also learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to SEC football.
