He's a pretty big guy and he just hit the ground like a sack of potatoes. I thought he was out cold, but he ended up being okay, with a knot on his cheekbone.
He's had season tickets since the Bengals played at Nippert and told me that my brothers and I can split the tickets. He said he's done- he's tired of the drunkenness and fighting. And this from a guy who isn't easily offended.
Unacceptable. I'm glad the team is being proactive about it. Not sure how effective it will be but it's at least an attempt to do something.
We sit up top in the canopy level and there really isn't that much bad behavior that we've witnessed. There is some, no doubt, but it's mainly Bengals' fans getting into it with the enemy fans. I've never seen any Bengal-on-Bengal violence.
