Wankers beware!

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this:  the NFL now has a "code of fan conduct"...The concept is to go after anything that "detracts from the gameday experience," and violators will suffer premature ejection and kept from coming back...

But, how will they enforce it?  Will stadium personnel be making the decisions?  Or the police who are on duty at the event?  And what of not being allowed back?  How will they stop someone, in all practicality?  I see this is a nice thing to say, but it seems unlikely to really work out, and could be scrutinized by some legal types.

Okay, so what would qualify someone as a wanker under the rules?
- Behavior that is unruly, disruptive, or illegal.
- Drunkenness and signs of alcohol impairment that result in irresponsible behavior.
- Foul or abusive language or obscene gestures.
- Interference with the progress of the game, including throwing objects onto the field.
- Failing to follow instructions of stadium personnel.
- Verbal or physical harassment of fans from the opposing team.
