Concert tailgaters tend to be a different breed. Concert tailgating is a lot more of high volume and rapid delivery of alcoholic beverages and not a lot of grilling and food consumption like you see for sporting event tailgating.
Those in Pittsburgh were treated to a Luke Bryan concert and with it came a lot of tailgating. This poor dude probably spent a ton of money on his ticket and never made it into the concert. And to add to it, the WWE fans will appreciate this remix dubbed from the WPXI’s 11 pm news report.
Philadelphia Eagles tailgaters are hard core. Pictures of these Eagles tailgaters in a hot tub while tailgating in frigid temperatures nearly broke Twitter on Saturday. Here is the news report from the local Philly Comcast Sports station.
If you have had so much that you can barely stand up, trying a keg stand is probably not in your best interest. Oh, and try not to have someone capture the whole debacle on their camera phone if you can help it.
A few years ago, October 12, 2009 to be exact, we posted a video of a drunk Cleveland Browns tailgater on top of a port-a-potty dancing and stripping off his clothes and throwing them down on the other tailgaters. We titled it: Video: Tailgaters, This Is Why The NFL Hates You.
Now comes this past weekend where some San Diego Chargers and Dallas Cowboys fans got into it in the parking lot complete with glass bottles broken upside the combatants’ heads. Take a look:
(Warning: The video does contain swear words, blood and violence. NOT safe for work and best not shown with kids in the room.)
The Qualcomm Stadium parking lot has a strict rule against glass bottles or any glass containers of any sort in the parking lot. Even a glass jar of salsa if left out in the open will get a tailgater a ticket by the San Diego Police patrolling the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot. People ask, “why is there such a stupid rule?”. The above video is the great example of why that rule exists.
The above video is also a glaring example of why the NFL and it’s member teams want to curtail tailgating time in the parking lots. The NFL believes that the more time parking lots are open and allow tailgating, the more time tailgaters will take that opportunity to drink and become violent.
It’s up to you tailgaters. If you want your time in the parking lot to get shortened to the point you can only park and head into the game, then keep allowing this boorish behavior to continue in the tailgating parking lots.
