Re: Drunk Browns fan tackles 8 year old boy.
The Muni Lot at Browns Stadium is particularly bad. A lot of people who park there are hard core "Dawg Pound" idiots who get there at the crack of dawn to tailgate and get wasted. Of course, the media loves to go there for pre-game shots of "dedicated Browns fans having a good time." They rarely cover the post-game activities, where drunken idiots pick fights with visiting fans and between themselves. I would recommend out-of-town fans avoiding the Muni Lot at all costs. Of course, fans should never have to worry about where they park or whether they need to watch their back after the game. Unfortunately, it's a league-wide problem and I'm sure something like this could have happened at the Meadowlands or Lincoln Financial Field or Heinz Field, even PBS. I think the league needs to look into some of the measures English soccer teams took to weed out the hooligans. Maybe taking pictures of those engaging in offensive behavior and hitting them with a lifetime ban from games would curb this kind of stuff. I don't think banning alcohol will happen (too much money from Budweiser) nor will it stop it (too easy to get blasted pre-game). But as it is I have said I won't take my boys to an NFL game until they're at least 16.
