Anyways, do people really need four hours of tailgating. My friends and I find that two is more than enough (maybe 2 1/2 hours to give a half hour to get into the stadium). Usually anything more than that and we are itching to get into the stadium.
You don't need
any tailgating. You don't need
to go to the game.
Tailgating is a want, not a need. Some people such as yourself may only want one hour or two, and that is cool, but is that really a reason to mandate that everyone else be restricted to what you want?
Two hours to set up, cook, eat, talk.
Visit pro shop
break down and put away
go in stadium in time to see warmups
That's how I did it last Thursday. That's how I'll do it a week from tomorrow.
Unless they drop the parking fee from $40 to $30 if there is only 3 hours tailgating vs 4. Then I suppose I could drop the Pro SHop and a half hour of warmups, keep the 2 hour tailgating, and save $10 for some fried dough and a Pepsi.
I won't hold my breath.
“When we look at the board, based on everything we want in a football player at that particular time, we evaluate them and take the player that fits best for our football team. That’s what we always do, and I think the last nine years we’ve put a pretty competitive team out there on the field every year. I think that’s how you do it – you get good football players. Sometimes they are not always at the No. 1 position, but I don’t think you pass up good football players to get the guys who aren’t as good just because they’re at a position that somebody feels you need.”
