Others Comment on Tailgate Zones

"Okliedokliedoo. Can't wait for tailgating in the no sin zone."

Kanu at Dodgy at Best nailed it with his headline "UGA Tailgaters: Make Room For Ned Flanders." (warning profanity) Sure Kanu over reaches in a few areas, but it's still funny.

Basically, we've freed up all of this tailgating space for Ned Flanders, and the crazy thing...Ned probably is happy with where he tailgates and doesn't want to move anyway.

Groo over at DawgsOnline agrees with me that Adams has gone overboard, and that the idea that tailgates that aren't teetotaler bone dry affairs aren't family friendly is a farce. Personally, I think it's offensive.

The tailgaters that make the biggest mess of anyone I know don't bag their trash consistently, use cooking equipment that causes permanent damage to concrete walkways and/or grass, assemble 20-30 foot flags that wouldn't be considered safe by a Polish Coal Mine Inspection Committee, generally put children at risk with vats of barely attended boiling oil, AND THEY DO NOT DRINK A DROP.

But they would be encouraged to tailgate in the Brooks Mall area because Adams feels that they are more "family friendly" than my tailgate which serves "devil water."

I can't wait to see what happens on the first Saturday of September. The douche we call president is going to create a traffic jam that makes Atlanta traffic look like a joke. Not allowing 90,000 people to enter campus till 7:00 AM is a disaster waiting to happen. How many fights do you think this will cause? How many wrecks will be the result of angry drivers. I don't know about the rest of you that enjoy going up on Friday night, but I am not going to let this stop me. I may get arrested. Thats fine, I wll be out before Kick-off. But I am not going to let Dr. Adams tell me that I can't enjoy my tailgating weekend. This is not northern football. We don't like to show up 2 hours before the game and walk directly to the stadium. So come Friday, September 1, 2006 I will be in same spot I have been for over 5 years. I will set up my tent, put my Tiki torches in the ground and make myself a stiff one and sit there. Just because I don't donate tons of money doesn't meant I shouldnt be allowed to come up on Friday. This has nothing to do with drinking or "Family Friendly" it's only about money. I guess Adams thinks his wife needs a raise and he needs to buy more property in Costa Rica. For all of you that are not happy with all this we need to raise our voices. Let's see what others have to say.

Perhaps it is only a matter of time before MA proposes that women wear red & black burkas to football games ;-)

Seriously - some of the greatest damage doen to campus is done by corporate and Univesity tailgates. They are very large, catered, not dry by any means and although the people who attend are not bad people the fact is that the nature of the beast is that no one feels responsible for it and trash ends up all over. If you have ever been hired to clean up afterwards you know this is true. I guess it's okay for that to happen since the grand poohbah, MA, has decreed it.

Does anyone else want to comment on the fact that the University Athletic Association serves alcohol in the Sky Suites DURING the game? Is this hipocracy or what?

Why do you drunk rednecks get so riled up over beer?
