And before you say he was drunk and therefore he is excused, I don't buy that at all. He is the one who got drunk, I'm sure on purpose, and then acted like a complete moron. It's his responsibility - he committed suicide by stupidity. One less idiot in the gene pool. And people want to erect statues? What the hell is wrong with you people?
I've long been advocating a stamp on your hand or something every time you buy a beer. Limit it to one beer per half. That's plenty enough to get your buzz on without getting sloppy drunk. Sorry, but too many people are drinking like crazy, then the game ends, and they are out on the streets ready to kill someone. It also leads to disorderly conduct at the games. The Texans and all other NFL teams are nothing but hypocrites who talk out of both sides of their mouth because they make a ton of money off of beer. They say one thing, but do another.
And yes that means you cannot buy two beers and say one is for your buddy/wife - he or she needs to get her butt to the stand herself and buy one if they want one. Granted, there can be some cheating (go with me and then give me your beer) but that will cut WAY down on obnoxious and dangerous behavior leading to the death of themselves or others.
I think what you're asking is unproductive. Most of the drunkness that I see comes from the tailgates. Nobody (as well as I) wants that taken away. You can't regulate what someone drinks before they come in the stadium and by then the alcohol has taken full effect.
