City Paper is not for tourists
Steinberg’s got the memo.
Anyone who’s been to a preseason game got any reports on the effectiveness of the new policy so far?
Here’s another idea: Ban alcohol sales within the stadium and consumption outside the stadium. Last Redskins game I went to offered remarkably good arguments for such a policy—-from the guys doing “Sean!” “Taylor!” call-and-response beer shotgunning (it’s how 21 would have wanted it) in the parking lot to the creepy grit lady passing around the booze she smuggled in via her socks to the guy who tried to stomp his seat to death after Gibbs’ plan to freeze Buffalo’s kicker hit a snag.
In my experience, Scottish soccer stadiums don’t sell alcohol, mostly to prevent fans of opposing “sides” from amplifying their everyday mindless violence.
Then again, this might be a bad year for Skins fans to stop drinking.
