A woman appeared to be staging a protest at Monday’s title game and was dragged off the field by police. (Getty) One woman at Levi’s Stadium on Monday wasn’t interested in watching Alabama and Clemson play for the national championship. 

We’re not sure her motivation, but this woman required two cops and a pair of non-uniformed helpers — one person for each limb — to carry her off the field and through the Tigers sideline toward the beginning of Monday’s Clemson-Alabama game.

She had a sign that we couldn’t read and appeared to be staging a protest. ESPN video shows her running on to the field shortly after Clemson scored the game’s first touchdown on a pick-six of Tua Tagovailoa.

 

If her intent was to gain some moderate attention on Twitter and in sports blogs on a big sports night, then well played.

If she wanted to avoid a likely fine and some time in a cell, then she probably should have chosen a different route.
