What I did hear is that is wasn't BA who wouldn't allow tailgating, it was the HSA who wouldn't, as they wanted the revenue inside to be more, again, it is what I heard, so I am not sure who or what side to believe on that, but it was said that BA was not against it.
I do agree with the fact that even though 40 showed up at city hall, BA was already gone..I still remember the fact that they put all that money into the dome to make it better for BA, then before that one game, the field was all F'ked up, uneven, and they postponed it or whatever it was...
Man, I do feel for you old Oiler fans, BA was/is a lying bastard that even I know to be true..But being a transplant, the Texans are my #1A team and NY is my #1B team, good thing they are in different conferences !
To your first question:
The Dome filling up after a playoff loss happened twice. 1978 & 1979.
Even if it was HSA's call about tailgating, Dud should've fought for his customer's game day enjoyment. Wouldn't you??
A kick in the groin for the bolded part, although I do root for them two times a year...
