That is undoubtedly true. I do think that the traffic problems getting into FedEx are worse than at some other places, which then encourages people to arrive very early and therefore start drinking very early. But, no doubt tailgating is a part of football culture and many people would be doing it even if there were no traffic difficulties. So, point taken. And I’m glad your group had a designated driver but I fear that there are plenty who do not.
My post wasn’t meant as a personal attack on you in any way. I explained that my experience with a lot of very drunk fans at the game was not a pleasant one. That’s my beef. Of course, I’d hate to think of how many people are driving home from the games while well over the legal limit for blood alcohol levels. I’m sure it’s much higher than at baseball games, even though there are plenty of baseball fans who overindulge, too.
This isn't really a hill to die on, dude. Frobby likes what he likes. He's free to watch the games in the comfort of his own home, sipping on a glass of his favorite wine that he poured for himself. You're free to go to tailgates with paint on your face and barbeque yourself Michelin-Star worthy ribs while downing 6 beers.
