    Sat in the upper deck at Syracuse throughout my upbringing, at a stadium where beer was served. I see more blacked out or outright drunk folks in one game at BDS than I did in a season at Syracuse. And before the attendance jokes, this was when they sold out 50k. To me, "get hammered before entering the stadium because we can't get alcohol" and sneaking in liquor leads to more issues.

    I've seen articles previously that speak to beer sales actually helping to curb police-reported incidents. West Virginia was one example when they started selling this decade. Here's the first article that popped up on a quick search:
    Athletic Management: Does selling alcohol at games reduce student binge drinking?
    Now, what I've seen everywhere suggests you need to introduce beer thoughtfully (duh):

    You are talking a major rebuild regarding family oriented attractions. Any alcohol sales must be tightly regulated and obnoxious behaviour should not be tolerated.

    You could punch a persons ticket each time they have a beer. Once all 4 corners are punched. You’re done.

    But if the law stays on the books then maybe you pay entry into the SW section and then get 4 “free” beers.

    It's possible for you to both be right.

    I recall watching a documentary on prohibition that said something similar about the need to cut the alcohol.

    But false memory can also play a part in these conversations. :confused:

    Maybe it is more a function of where you sit. I'm in the upper North and don't see many drunks around me. Or many people at all for that matter. haha. anyway, I see your point.

    I sit in the upper east, and the only drunks I ever see up there are fans of the opposing teams, especially mutt fans every other year. In 2017, one totally passed out and had to be carried out.

    Get your binoculars and look over behind the defensive huddle- to our right is a very nice guy who is Whisky and only some coke in second half. Behind us is a not so nice drinker who curses at the visiting band - get out of her gou Clemson farmers! Go drive your tractors home!

    Yes that was why I responded to the post that intimated that ugag could sell alcohol and we couldn't.

    Hell, it's hard enough for me to make it up there. LOL That's why I have moved down 10 rows this year though. That is one helluva climb up to the top.

    An extra $10 or $15 tix isnt going to stop over consumption. The positives still out weigh the negatives, IMHO.

    I saw yesterday that the powers in the cesspool have said that they will NOT sell alcohol in the stadium there, other than in the "club sections".

    I go to upwards of 15 Tech basketball games per year and would probably buy a beer or 2 per game.

    My concession spend over ~15 games last season?

    $0.
