Well yes, I agree with you about being refused admission. However if he is obnoxiously chanting "Fire Renney" throughout the whole game he will undoubtedly be tossed. The frightening part isn't that someone thinks wearing a shirt like that will make a bit of difference, it's that every young American thinks that the 1st Amendment gives them the right to walk into wherever they want and spout off whatever they want. It doesn't work that way. How about everyone tries reading The Constitution once before they start claiming it as their means of protection.
I'm sorry to go off on the OP here, but misreadings of the 1st Amendment are one of my biggest pet peeves.
