    Talking Man, this is funny - Alcohol now a no-no for tailgating Seahawks fans

    ***Before reading this, I have to say that the seahawk stadium is beutiful but the fans suck (well where we were sitting anyway) very drunk and very insulting.***


    Alcohol now a no-no for tailgating Seahawks fans

    SEATTLE - For many football fans, beer and tailgating go together. But not in Seattle, where quaffing a frothy libation will now get you a fine.

    "None of us are looking to get drunk out here, but it's nice to have a beer or two before the game," said tailgater Steve Ege.

    State liquor control agents are now prowling the parking lots around Qwest field, turning alcoholic beverages to garbage.

    "I think the biggest thing you see, particularly around football games, is a lot of people being disorderly, urinating on cars. So there's been a real increase in the number of people complaining about that," said Warren Bresko of the Liquor Control Board.

    What's more, the Seahawks themselves are imposing tailgate regulations that include no "taunting" anyone from the other team and no playing catch, not even with a football or a Frisbee.

    "I'm a season ticket holder. This is what I'm here for, and I feel like the man's coming down on us, taking away our good time and that's not OK in my book," said Jeff Coxey.

    The bottom line is that any alcohol, even if it's in a plastic cup, is illegal.

    The only way you can get around the rule is to drink inside an RV. An RV is considered a "private residence" and the long arm of the party police can't reach you in there.

    The fine for drinking alcohol outside the stadium is $103. Anyone caught selling alcohol without a license faces a fine of $5,000 and a year in jail.

    I expect to see a parking lot full of RVs.

    Most cold weather teams already have lots of RV's on their lots on sundays. That's kind of disappointing that they are having to make such a rule to prevent who knows what in the future. it's unfortunatate these rules are coming as people are losing their common sense and decency.

    I see RV owners charging a small fee for admission and making many new friends!!! Hell, I'd do it, what's tailgating without some adult beverages before the game and after!!!!
