    Associated Press


    HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Fears of rowdy fans during the holiday season have led officials to ban alcohol sales at next Monday night's game between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots at Giants Stadium.

    Jets spokesman Ron Colangelo said the ban was put in place to protect fans.

    "It's for the safety of our fans, so that they can have a comfortable environment at a time when the holiday season can get very festive," Colangelo told The Record of Bergen County for Tuesday's newspapers.

    The ban comes after a sometimes violent Nov. 27 Jets-Saints game in which police made nine arrests. In one altercation during the second half, two fans were stabbed outside a men's room. In another incident, a state trooper broke his leg while trying to eject a fan who reportedly threw a beer bottle.

    Earlier this year, New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority president George Zoffinger pledged to deal with the problem of drunk fans.

    At the beginning of the year, a jury found the stadium beer vendor, Aramark, and a New York Giants fan liable for $135 million in damages in a case involving a 7-year-old girl who was paralyzed when the fan hit her family's car after leaving a game.

    The fan had purchased six beers at halftime even though he'd already drunk so much he was slurring his words.

    I agree with you on this, then again I never really understand why people need a drug to make them feel good.

    Jets fans will take matters in their own hands. They will get extra drunk before they show up the game. How can they possibly watch a game sober.

    agree 100%. If they want to get drunk- stay at home. That was the one of the things that turned me off in the late 80's. I gave up my seats because I didn't want to drive 6 hours round trip to get into fights with drunks.

    I regret that doing that now.

    Hey, I understrand why they're doing it given the time of year, but it doesn't mean I like it. I'm going to be at that game and do enjoy a few brewskis while cheering for Bruschi. It won't kill me not to drink, of course, and it'll still be just as goot a time (and it will be nice not having beer bottles thrown at the Flying Elvis logo on my back) but to those of you who can't understand why other like the effects of alchohol or drugs; just accept that's the way it is - to each his own.

    What about during posting?

    There are ususally several threads a day that would cause people to get drunk.

    If I were a NJ Jest fan, I'd want to be drunk all of the time, too.

    Bottom line is that they'll just drink more pre-game. Think of all the money they'll save!

    I enjoy having a few during the game so I've got no problem with it. It's just that some folks don't know how to limit or control themselves and have to ruin it for everyone else. Jersey fans are generally a-holes to begin with. Add alcohol to the mix and it just gets ugly.

    Yeah, but if it wasn't for a few beers last night, I probably wouldn't have volunteered to whip up this uber-cool Bruschi wallpaper that I'm working on right now (instead of working). :D

    I think the ban is in place to protect Joe Namath from looking like a fool again! :D

    Hey Pujo - I'll be at the game too. The only live Pats game of the season for me (since I'm in SoCal). Will you be tailgating? I've got a few Pats fans from Pats Planet that I'm organizing with but we're looking for more.

    I'll have a Bruschi on and a brewski in hand before the game.

    I am a social drinker but don't really see why people would want to spend so much to go to a game and then drink so they might not remember it. I only say this because I have seen people so drunk at games that I highly doubt they remembered anything the next day. What's the point?
