Is it my imagination or does Tech not have a choice on this? I thought all D1 schools are restricted from selling beer in the stadium by some form of mutual agreement such as under an NCAA restriction?
Nope. There are a few schools that sell it in stadiums on campus. West Virginia is one.Is it my imagination or does Tech not have a choice on this? I thought all D1 schools are restricted from selling beer in the stadium by some form of mutual agreement such as under an NCAA restriction?
But this would be illegal and any student caught doing this is an immoral human and should be stripped of all their scholarships to attend Tech.I voted no. If you want to drink in the stadium, smuggle it in yourself. Don't rely on others to bring it in and then meekly purchase it from them as if the outcome were any different. This is college! We don't "purchase" alcohol, we sneak it in past an army of security guards armed to the teeth with riot gear and equipped with chemical sniffers and full-body MRI and alcohol-seeking drones. In broad daylight with a confidence that only comes drinking half of what you meant to smuggle in.
Sell beer in the stadium all you want. I'm good.
Sooo... banning alcohol actually tends to have the opposite of the intended effect...Bans on alcohol consumption on transport often meant that fans simply took different modes of transport to matches allowing them to drink, or would set off earlier in order to drink before the match. Bans on the sale of alcohol in stadia usually had the effect of fans engaging in ‘binge drinking’ beforehand in order to achieve a level of intoxication prior to entering the stadium. City-wide alcohol prohibitions (popular for the visits of English teams to Italy) simply did not work, with most bars still serving and fans always able to find alcohol from somewhere. In many observed cases, these restrictions even increased drunkenness, as fans binge drank and consumed spirits (which are easier to conceal and smuggle where prohibitions are in place) rather than drinking beer at a more leisurely pace.
