Many NFL facilities have built-in detention centers to contain rowdy, drunken, violent, and all-of-the-above fans until such time as the police can take custody and the PSL money is officially confiscated. Only the Eagles had so many criminal offenders per game as to justify the construction and maintenance of a stadium courtroom with on-site judge for instant case trial, just to speed things along. Until someone builds an electric chair in the pressbox, they win.
However, the increased hostility of just about every game environment hasn't gone unnoticed -- attendance is down this year, and since it can't possibly be the economy, the inherent madness of Game Day is taking some of the blame (with high definition television getting the rest). Rick Reilly had a well-timed column on it this week.
So with that article in mind, I'll ask:
1. How much did attending cost you, grand total between all expenses:?
2. Did you feel threatened at any point?
3. Were there any security-worthy incidents in your vicinity?
4. Scale of one to ten: how drunk was your section?
5. Do you think it's a good environment to bring, say, a toddler into?
6. Would you risk attending a game in 'enemy territory' while flying someone else's colors?
