We would zip in right before game time. They should bring that back. Seems it would solve a lot of problems.
A lot of problems?
Look I sympathize with families with young kids, especially anyone who wants to bring their daughter who might have to use one the awful portapotties. But there is an alcohol free section of the stadium and I beleive you can purchase parking closer to the stadium or arrive earlier to get inside more easily.
But for everyone else, to complain about tailgating at a football game is just pathetic. Its a FOOTBALL game. The VAST majority of attendees like to bbq, have a couple beers and throw a football - all so they can enjoy a nice day outside with friends and families. Like with any adult decision, attending a game comes with tailgating and in turn things like lots being crowded and having to get around a few chairs or tables.
Imagine this was a website about the opera, and I came on here and complained that every time i went to the opera it was awful, everyone was quiet, I wasnt allowed to cheer or yell during the performance, and no one walked around selling hot dogs. The response would be - "um, you do know you are at the opera and thats not how it works"?????
You are attending a football game, like at every other game in the country, people are tailgating.
