The Ralph Engelstad Arena is taking some new steps to change fan behavior, but what will fans think of it at tonight's game?

After some complaints about rowdy fans and and a fight left one fan in serious condition after a game last month, the Ralph and UND have made some changes. They started playing some new sportsmanship videos tonight and will try to be more proactive with alcohol enforcement. People can also use an in-house number to report problems. Fans we talked to tonight said its hard to monitor so many people. They say it doesn't hurt to try but they're not sure if anything can be done to keep things completely under control.

"Maybe cut the drinking back a little bite but you're not going to change anything I don't care what you do.I hope so make everybody aware of it , it's a game and its for the fans."
