Is basically him just saying that the Michigan St game atmosphere would get rowdier at night. It still seems like the arrests from this night game is irrelevant to his argument. He's basically just saying sparties gonna spart and drag us down to their level, especially at night
Brandon never used the words "drunken juggaloes" nor "spartan trash". But I'm pretty sure it was implied. The individuals I encountered walking back from juggalofest...I cannot blame the man.
As someone who will be working in the UMHS ER the rest of the football Saturdays this month, people better rein in their shenanigans!
Evidently there was a couch fire too. This year has had way too many couch burnings outside of EL than I care for. This new crop of Wolverines are really hurting one of my main rebuttals in any debate with a Sparty fan...
DB has regarding night games for MSU/OSU. If it's such a problem, why does LSU, Bama, ND, etc have night games? Because the publicity and revenue outweigh the 0.06% that get arrested.
I don't believe the Big 10 allows night games in November, therefore a night game against OSU would never happen.
It has more to do with the unpredictability of cold weather at that time of year I would imagine.
I'd bet most of those people were passed out from drinking too much. Probably a little overlap between the ejections and those needing medical attention. I also wonder how many I the ejections were for using someone else's ID or some similar minor infraction. Doesn't necessarily mean unruly behavior.
RCMB morons claim that Dave Brandon is a "pussy" and thinks we should have a night game here with them.
Do they desire to be embarrassed by our football team on national tv or something?
Look at all the night games we've played at Spartan Stadium. Wait, no, that would be zero.
I have a friend (40 yrs old, normally dressed and relatively sober) who got kicked out of the stadium 3 minutes after entering, 30 minutes before kickoff. It seems the ole Jim Beam traveler doesn't just get tossed in the trash if the cops see it, the dude carrying the traveler also gets kicked out. Pretty harsh. Most annoying, the cop asked my friend "so how much did you pay for your ticket?" Hopefully the cop spent the game dealing with drunks and never had a chance to watch the game. With that kind of police state, I'm surprised the numbers are so low.
I bet he doesn't try it again. Harsh but effective. Plus, he already counted towards the 115,000.
lol @ police state. Try living in Iran or some third world shithole and then cry about a police state. Your friend knows the rules and had all day to drink.
Funny you mention it...I've lived in two countries ignorant people refer to as "third world" (an outdated and naive term with enormous racial/prejudicial connotations).
I've also spent a significant amount of time in Damascus, Syria (not exactly Iran, but I bet about the same to you). Does that mean my comments are now valid in your eyes?
No, I know it's debatable. However, it's coincidental (not ironic) that you'd use such hyperbole.
I have no problem with people being ejected for disruptive, inappropriate behavior; and if you're doing something dumb you should pay the price. On the other hand, such "preventative punishment" is prudish, and in my mind goes too far.
My friend threw the bottle in the trash voluntarily, was totally compliant with the police, and simply wanted the matter closed. Dragging him out and mocking him went beyond my sense of what's right, and certainly went beyond what I've experienced in other countries. Meanwhile, as mentioned in these comments, someone observed entirely out of bounds behavior by a dude who clearly should have been booted but was allowed to stay.
I'm certain all of the actions and reactions discussed won't stop any of these people from doing similarly again.
Yet he needed to drink a whole bottle inside the stadium.Because drunks with bottles to toss is a good idea in the stadium.
I think the cop was saying "was it worth having to be a drunk to miss out on the game after spending so much money?" But I'm guessing he or you didn't learn anything from it.
If you translated that percentage to a night club or bar, it'd be the friendliest night life locale on the planet. Party on Michigan Stadium
The temp didn't drop like it was supposed to, so it was warm with that many bodies in there, but I didn't think it was all that hot out at night.
Now CMU I was ready for you to come cart me out in the 2nd quarter. It wasn't THAT hot, but it humid as all get out.
it took me to get from the gate to my section I saw 3 different people being strapped to gurneys obviously intoxicated.
Felt like an 80's rock concert for a moment.
every last lighted bracelet from those arrested/ejected/etc., and gave them to a few of the many thousands that went without.
(we entered about a half-hour prior to kickoff and all the bracelets were already gone!)
We entered section 34 an hour before kickoff and the bracelets were all gone. Part of the problem was that people grabbed a handful of them at a time (saw tons of people with 2 or more on).
First of all how can you promote it (did they say they were limited?) and not have enough for everyone? Then how hard is it to just hand them to people. Dozens of volunteers standing there, doing nothing. Plus giving them to all the volunteers first over the paying customers wasn't smart. Bet those concession stand workers looked great on tv.
Still, I can't complain too much. The group of young guys next to me who brought they ND friend had them, and the ND guy for some reason didn't want something that lights up with a block M after the game, so he left it behind.
Being Sparty is reason enough to not schedule a night game with them. Ohio would be okay but considering it will be November 30 this year, 8:00 p.m. would make it rather chilly.
I saw a guy whip his dong out and take a piss at the corner of church and south u right after the game. He was a domer.
It was really small?
One of the game ejections was for public uriniation. I had wondered "where in the stadium do you think you can get away with taking a piss?"....but I guess you might have answered the question of what type of person might try.
those numbers are high. But, that's not surprising. More time for drinking and partying results in more people passing out, pissing in public, fighting, etc.
my girlfriend was STILL performing the chicken dance to passing Irish fans, most which thought it was hilarious. Then Bad-Ass Billy walks up to ME and says "You messed with the wrong Irishmen today" and proceeds to roll up his sleeves (what is this an old western movie???) with his buddy in a cast sitting there nodding. As soon as I move toward him, another, significantly bigger than myself or these irish fans, steps in between us and basically tells this juvenile to go home- the look on this Irish kid's face was PRICELESS.
If you're on this blog, thanks for saving one/both us from going to jail that night!
There was a drunk jerk behind me in Sec 44 that was trash-talking a couple of ND guys through the first qtr and then one of the ND guys apparently said something pretty bad to the guy and from that point on he kept threatening the ND guy and swearing at him and calling him female genital parts and dropping MFs everywhere. I finally turned around and told him to knock it off because there was an 8-yr old girl just four seats away.
Then he kept threatening to beat the guy up and just as the last play of the 1st half ended this jerk climbs over 4 people and attacks the ND guy. I pulled him back and proceeded to berate him for starting a fight in front of 100k people and told him to take it outside or be the bigger man and let it go. Someone else got Security and they removed him, but let him come back in the 3rd qtr. He was quieter, but he sould have been removed permanently.
My 15-yr old heard and saw the whole thing and although we enjoyed the win, the experience was severly tainted. That experience and the constant assault on our senses by the music and noise for 4 hours is making me re-think keeping my season tickets. There wasn't one moment of peace until we left the stadium. I think it's a little over the top.
You don't need to keep the fans engaged for the entire game by bombarding them with sound and video to keep their interest. At least at home I can mute the sound during commercials.
