Default Jets Ban Beer Sales for Monday Night Game Against Patriots

WTF! I'm going to the game and they ban beer!?!?!?


Jets Ban Beer Sales for Monday Night Game Against Patriots
2005-12-20 13:05 (New York)


By Pete Coates
Dec. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Jets banned beer sales
for their Dec. 26 home game against the New England Patriots in
an attempt to head off problems with inebriated fans, the team
said.
No beer will be sold for the 9 p.m. National Football League
game at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, although
fans can still hold tailgate parties in the parking lots, Jets
spokesman Ron Colangelo said.
It will be the first time in four years that the team has
banned alcohol sales at a game. He said the decision was not
prompted by an incident at the team's last home night game on
Nov. 27 when a man was arrested on charges of stabbing two others
in a stadium restroom. The victims were not injured seriously.
``It's precautionary,'' Colangelo in a telephone interview.
``It's the holidays and a lot of people are off from work. We
don't want fans to overdo it.''
Colangelo said the ban isn't part of a policy for all night
games for the Jets, who are 3-11 this season and in last place in
the American Football Conference East Division.
``It's not something we do all the time,'' Colangelo said.
``We monitor the schedule year-to-year and make decisions
accordingly. We try to use our best judgment.''
The game will be broadcast nationally on ABC's ``Monday
Night Football.''
In January, a jury ruled that Aramark Corp., which operates
concession stands at the stadium, must pay $75 million in
punitive damages for serving beer to a drunken football fan who
crippled a 7-year-old girl in a car crash.
The incident happened after a 1999 home game for the New
York Giants, who share the stadium with the Jets.

That's what you get for not calling me yet to give me details.

I saw a couple of guys at a Jets game last year hiding beer in the hood of thier jackets. I don't know if it worked though, but it seemed like a pretty good idea.
BTW- You can still tailgate. Just get ripped before the game starts and you'll be good. You should be thanking the Jets anyway. You won't be spending $50 everytime you buy a round of beer.

Do they do the same half ass upper body pat down there too? In Indy anyone can get anything in as long as its hidden below the pants pockets.

Why would anyone want to go to this game? Pats fans would probably have higher attendance driving down from Boston.

They basically feel under your armpits and that's it. If you have a jacket w/ a pouch in front instead of pockets, you could keep anything there.
