Talk of no alcohol at NFL games this season.

Recommended Posts

Personally for me, it's a non-issue.  If circumstances work out, I'll try to go to a game.

I quit reading when he said he could see a scenario with no fans over 70 allowed. It proves the entire article is a hack. 

Makes sense from an epidemological viewpoint, but a non starter from a legal point of view.  Age discrimination.

As for no alcohol at the games, I go for the football, no problem for me personally.  And, maybe I won't have to dodge the drunks when I do attend.

Yeah, I read the article slightly wrong, as someone pointed out. I guess they might “suggest” fans over 70 stay home. Just seems like an arbitrary number written by someone without much knowledge. I rarely see anyone over 70 at New Era anyway. I’d assume that crowd is more likely to be in a suite or something to begin with.

Amen. If they don’t sell beer in the name of Covid 19, it will never come back. If people are good with it this season, it’s never coming back.

If this happens, there will be a lot of ziplock bags inside underwear.

 

It would be funny to sneak about with a pin.  "Sir, the bathroom is that way..."

”Anne Frank spent 2 years hiding in an attic and we’ve been home for just over a month with Netflix, food delivery & video games and there are people risking viral death by storming state capital buildings & screaming, “Open Fuddruckers!””

ahh, the old “Anne Frank had it worse” argument.  Right up there with “they don’t even HAVE the NFL in the Congo!!!”

Perspective and humility, what a strange “argument.”

In your veins? Sneaky of you! 

 

It just means a more extreme search going in. Krafty might pay extra to go through the regular people  line.......just for the pat down!   :)

And also, people will be smuggling alcohol into the stadium!

Why stop there? I'm cruising for a cavity search!! 💩 :wub: Plenty of room in here to hide your stash, just have to hit the port-o-potty pregame :death:

Idiotic. Reasoning is to decrease trips to bathrooms?... people are just gonna drink more of whatever else is available. 

 not to mention drink more pre game.

Have fun at the games  by yourself. I'm sure you'll get a great seat 

 

Wow,  you wouldn't want to go to a Bills game if there wasn't alcohol!?

 

I can't believe that many feel likewise?  The games are great, beer is not essential to that.

 

And maybe a lot less fights too.

 

Win. Win.

Except since alcohol was not available they would turn off water faucets (as they have done in past) and raise prices of bottled water.

 

Maybe add some specialty bottled water at $20 ea.

I don't usually buy alcohol in the stadium anyway. I do my drinking pregame and the game itself is sober-up time before the post game tailgate.

Age discrimination just needs a rational basis. Legally, that is a pretty easy hurdle.

I don’t really care about alcohol, and even if they do open up to 15,000 seats, I won’t be going to a game.  I can certainly enjoy it from my couch.  I don’t see how they can get away with the age discrimination as that is a lawsuit waiting to happen.  They can put in the tickets discouraging people over a certain age not to go, but they won’t Bam them.
