That is not a solution. People get boozed up before games any way. Also a lot of these fights stem from fans harrassing other fans of other teams in their stadiums or those opposite fans getting really disrespectful and obnoxious trying to gain attention to themselves. Not fair to the fans who have a beer or two and behave and enjoy the game, because of a few random fights that take place here and there. You're packing 70,000 people in a stadium together in small little seats. There are always going to be incidents at ball games, rodeos, and concerts with that many people packed in at a high intensity entertainment event. Getting trained security who can take care of these situations is the answer. I think most stadiums do a pretty good job for the most part other than in the parking lots. The parking lots seem to be where a lot more fights take place.
