Is banning the sale of alcohol so bad? Many say will hurt attendance, but what about the many that stay away from Bulldog Stadium or other venues because the sale of alcohol. The athletic budget is already in the red, losing an estimated $138,000 of revenue from alcohol sales does not help. This really hurts one sport the most, football. No other sport has tailgate parties prior to the start of the game, which will not be affected by the ban. Some fans rather stay at the tailgate and drink then enter the game. If alcohol is not sold inside the stadium many more may choose to stay at the tailgate. Others will think of creative ways to sneak in alcohol or just come to the game drunk.
In my opinion, I don't see it as such a bad thing. Maybe because I like to actually watch the game. If I am buzzing I can't follow the game as well, so I don't drink. I will have a beer or two if someone is buying but I'm not going to the game to get drunk. I can do that after the game, where the beer isn't watered down and doesn't cost $7 a pop.
