AROUND THE WEB:

-- A Giants fan wearing a Janoris Jenkins jersey was ejected from Levi’s Stadium on Sunday after causing a violent scene in the stands.

Seven security guards ejected the fan, who was sitting behind the Giants bench, in the second half of the Giants’ 31-21 loss to the 49ers after he cursed at players walking back to the sideline after a fourth-quarter touchdown. A group of fans also flipped the players the middle finger.

Officers warned the fan in question but he kept swearing and security ejected him. He resisted and even tried to spit on one of the officers, according to eyewitnesses.

Security then threw the fan over the railing, an officer came over after him and appeared to punch the fan while other officers restrained him.

"They started punching him and one officer had a bloody nose because of this," Alex Amster, who witnessed the incident, said. "(The fan) got up super bloody and was escorted through the tunnel by the (officers)."

The fan was also tased by officers.

He was handcuffed and security led him off the field through a tunnel.

-- Barstool Sports announced Monday the company is expanding its satellite radio deal with Sirius XM.

While Barstool previously had a show from noon to 2 p.m. on Sirius XM Rush, the company now has its very own channel beginning on January 15.

Founder Dave Portnoy announced the move in a video on Twitter:

“Clearly, we are at Sirius XM right now, our show goes live in a little bit. About 10 months ago, we got our own radio show, right? 12-2, little show, Barstool Radio, tinkered with it, did this, did that. You know what I’m here to do today, Frankie? To announce that coming in January, we have our own channel.  24/7, all the time, Barstool Sports, that’s all you’re going to get. You wake up at 3 a.m.? Tune in, Barstool’s on. You wake up at 11 a.m.? Tune in, Barstool’s on. You go to the bars, you’re drinking, you get home at 11 p.m., 1 a.m., tune in, Barstool’s on. 24/7,” Portnoy said.

“You think we’re going down, we’re growing!,” he continued. “The moon is within reach! 24/7. Hey, what do you want for Christmas? A little toy, maybe a little toy car, My Little Pony, a Cabbage Patch Doll? I got my own radio station. I can do whatever I want to do with it. If I want to put crap on it, I’ll put crap on it, if I want to make it funny, I’ll make it funny. 24/7 is coming in January, our own channel, whatever we want, whenever we want it. We’re coming for you. And who’s you? Everybody! Music!”

Barstool Radio will be on Sirius channel 93.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yeah, well again, I am not really familiar with the situation. I wouldn’t really have any comment on some other team or some other situation that I just don’t know anything about.” --Bill Belichick, on Martellus Bennett’s Instagram rant against the Packers about how the team handled his injury
