    whoah! I know quit a few folks who watch the games in the parking lot. This news is going to jolt a lot of people in a couple of weeks!

    What happens if you are meeting someone at the game who has your ticket??

    Looks like they'll start kicking stragglers out DURING the game.

    Not a fan of this policy. I will absolutely come in EARLY for the Giants game in case they start demanding we who our tickets when so enter. I'll bank om delays while folks rummage through their glove boxes looking for their tickets.

    Wow...I know someone who tailgates in the Orange lot and hardly ever actually goes into the game...

    He's been doing it for a while...I know he's going to be a bit upset...

    Say 2 groups of friends from different areas of town both have Orange passes. Say Group A has two extra seats for people coming with Group B. They plan on giving them the tickets when they meet up in the parking lot.

    How would that be handled?

    Blame it on the violence, its better than no tailgating at all right? Like the old Astrodome days.

    Lauren, I honestly don't think the front office really cares about specific scenarios.

    Basically, they'd be JB'ed and told to watch the game from their hotel room..

    I honestly don't see how they can enforce it though, at least not for people who would park in the cash lot or somewhere else and walk over to meet friends at a tailgate.

    I think the issue is people that don't have a parking pass OR a ticket to the game. Strangers are just wandering over to the tailgates and joining in the parties, with neither tickets to the game OR a parking pass. I would imagine that if you have a parking pass, it should suffice as a "team-issued credential". I don't think they're going to be stopping people with parking passes from entering the parking lot.

    Not sure of the special circumstances, I don't think they will question people who are behaving, but if people are being asses and they don't have a game ticket PEACE.

    Also it says on the link that season ticket holders can buy "guest" tickets for $10 that will allow people into the parking lots.

    Looks like this is because of people staying too long after the games.
    Season ticket holders will be able to buy "tailgate passes" for $10 each.


    Here's the e-mail I received - I bolded the important parts:

    Something like this is going to open a huge can of worms! What about the people picking up tickets at the will call window?

    Not to mention the people that meet people at the game to get their tickets.

    I agree. I believe they will enforce this with the "walk-ins" - not with the vehicles with parking passes.

    I saw tons of people hauling coolers into the Blue lot as we were trying to get into the stadium. It was 11am. Those people were just there for tailgating and were probably not going into the game. It was a mess trying to get past the people coming in to the lot.

    I don't think it is going to be very strictly enforced unless things get out of hand like this past Sunday. Things should be pretty status quo IMO unless it becomes apparent that there are way too many people roaming around.

    Who knows, we will just have to wait and see how it turns out the next couple of games.

    With will call I'd imagine you could show a receipt or something of the like and they will let you through. Season ticket holders can send tickets via e-mail, so they won't have sympathy on meeting someone. Might have to pass them through the fence.

    Good point. It might just be an official policy that is in place to give them the right to kick people out for whatever reason(s).

    Of course, they reserve that right if you are misbehaving and have a ticket, so I'm not sure what they plan to do.

    Like JB said, will call tickets and people meeting up for tickets are two scenarios that I've encountered and would be a huge problem if the plan to inspect a lot of people.
