EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ Some Jets fans don't head to the food concessions or bathrooms during halftime at Giants Stadium.

The "New York Times" reports they gather on a pedestrian ramp at Gate D and engage in an obscenity-laced chant for women to expose their breasts.

At Sunday's Pittsburgh game, the gathering lasted about 20 minutes. The newspaper says there was a roar when at least one woman complied.

One clip posted on YouTube shows a woman being groped by a man.

The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority says it's aware of the behavior. But security vice president Patrick Aramini questions how they can arrest everybody who starts chanting.

The newspaper says a reporter who tried to interview two security guards was detained, threatened with arrest and asked to hand over his tape recorder.
