Bad Things Brewing at Raider Games

October 06, 1990

There is a popular bumper sticker that reads: "Instant Jerk, Just Add Alcohol." I feel this bumper sticker explains the problems rowdy Raider fans are causing.

Alcohol has a tendency to make people uninhibited. When you put this uninhibitedness together with the change that occurs in a large crowd, you are going to have problems.

Solution? First, try ending alcohol sales at the end of the first half. If that doesn't work, cut off all sales of alcohol at the Coliseum completely. There also has to be more of an effort to stop the tailgate parties that dominate the area around the Coliseum before Raider games.

Perhaps sober fans would be better-behaved fans.
