While this will no doubt test the boundaries of OT, since I'm a civilian now and think this is highly interesting given its location, the game, what will emerge from the national MSM, etc:
Apparently the free giveaway of tickets to tonight's Vikings/Giants game has led to utter chaos. 'Sources' (lulz) indicate that there was absolutely zero coordination or balance to the event and Ford Field employees more or less gave tickets away with zero interest in restrictions. This led to, as one person put it via Twitter,
- People were about to riot when the line got cut off. There's a good chance free ticket people will get shutout of the game
- @Buccigross some people were grabbing 30 tickets a person and going back in line. There was no security or order in lines
- Messed up situation at #fordfield people who showed up after 8am probably missed out for the 9am tickets
This could have been easily prevented by making tickets for the game $5 with all proceeds donated to the Salvation Army, etc.
So, for any of the MGoBoarders who were hoping to get tickets - don't expect too much. Nor should you, in my opinion, pay for tickets to individuals who were undoubtedly the ones grabbing 30 per person.
