Default "May I see your papers please?"

If this is all the examination they do it seems like you could get some card stock, a Xerox Color Copier, borrow a friends tickets for 20 minutes, and its "back to business as usual." It won't get you in the game, but will get you in the lot.

So was the lines long getting into the stadium like many of you were predicting?

How strict were the Texans staff?

Cool Re: "May I see your papers please?"

The ONLY issues I heard:

1. Pedestrian traffic has been changed even more than last week - some people were diverted really far aware from their tailgate to get into the lot.

2. Pedestrian traffic is not allowed until 8:30 - we were not aware of this ahead of time. We have a lot of folks with game tickets who park off site and walk to our tailgate.

It all worked fine by me. The Yellow Lot was a graveyard during the game according to Frank...our cook and keeper of the space.

which I also noticed, as I retrieved my cooler, left at a friends tailgate area, while leaving during the game. And there was no around to even think about asking if that was actually MY cooler. I just hope some 'grave robbers' don't figure this out and make away with pretty much anything and everything they want, since no one is around to prevent/stop it from happening.

Seriously, theft is going to be a very bad result of the Texans new tailgating policy. There is alot of very expensive equipment left out and I think it is going to start disappearing in the graveyard parking lots very soon.

They didn't check for tickets or anything. Total lip service. If you have a parking pass, you could have entered the lots even without a game ticket...

The new policy states you must have a game ticket. If you have a parking pass, they were not checking for game tickets. They were only enforcing part of the new policy and that was my point.

The people that stay outside at our tailgate got checked for tailgating passes during the game...... and they have a parking pass.

Got it. I guess that is the best way to enforce the new policy without causing a traffic nightmare before the game...

I was only ever so slightly inconvienced. I had to show my tickets to walk out of yellow lot where i park which I thought was retarded. Eh. I can live with it. Lots of retarded stuff going on in life anyway and nothing to do but roll with it.

What I did notice was a significant signifcant reduction in the tailgating crowd. It kinda felt real quiet.

Based on a pure guess...I think the crowd was down about 50% overall in the Yellow Lot. I was fine with it. The crowd that was there was very orderly and respectful from what I coulld see. Yeah...I am inconvienenced a bit with the new policy but overall I like what it did to the crowd.
