Tailgate parties can only start five hours before New York Giants and Jets games instead of seven...

This is just part of the story, I just wanted to put put this out there as except for the Platinum lot, 5 hours would be nice, but man, 7 hours would be absolutely incredible..Set up before it gets too hot, get things started and still have enough time to enjoy the day before having to head inside...

I can only imagine what Reliant Park would look like at 5:00am !!

I would love the Patriots tailgate. Get there the day before, party the night away...and get ready for the morning.

it is quite dark, and you might find a gate boss but no gate attendants untill about 30 minutes prior to the gate opening

Can you imagine Reliant with this rule?

(1)$7.50 beers
(2)half time cutoff
(=) No one left in thier seats after the half. . .

Sucks that the price to pay because of idiots falls on the rest of us. I just don't understand changing the rules for everybody instead of going after the idiots. When idiots act like idiots, kick THEM out, then you don't have to eff it up for everybody.

I know 7 hours would be crazy, but for the thousands who do it right, they get 2 hours taken away from them for what? A few idiots??

Just doesn't make sense, but not too much these days does any more.
