This year a sign for the football schedule was stolen from Darien High School grounds sometime between 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30, and 12:30 p.m. the next day.
The 7-foot-by-3-foot white, corrugated plastic sign was used to post schedule information for Blue Wave football games. The value of the sign is estimated to be $200.
In previous years, surrounding the Turkey Bowl game, there have been these incidents with some connection to the Darien football team:
- In 2012, a New Canaan Rams team member's equipment bag was urinated on in the visitors' locker room by one of five young men, some of whom had previously been on the football team.
- In 2011, some football team members were prevented from playing in the Turkey Bowl after it was learned they were at a party with alcohol in which a former team member was charged with beating up another high school student.
- In 2010, some Darien Football team members vandalized the New Canaan High School building, spraying it with blue paint, one of the Blue Wave team colors.
