And you are simply incorrect that it's not a solution. No alcohol for three+ hours when emotions are running high due to the nature of fans at sporting events?

BTW, I'm not necessarily advocating this course of action, but saying it's not a solution is simply incorrect.

My own take is to let adults make their own decisions in life and hold them accountable with the full force of the law when they get stupid with it.

In a sort of related story:

Quote:
Researchers from the University of Minnesota People under the age of 35 were eight times more likely to be legally drunk than other attendees, and fans who "tailgate" in the parking lot before the game were the worst offenders: They were 14 times more likely to leave a game intoxicated.

Study Finds One in 12 Are Drunk at Major Sporting Events
If HPD really wanted to "get tough on drunks", they would have some sobriety tests at the exits of the games.
