Stupidest Move of the Century: No tailgating will be allowed at Super Bowl XLVIII


Fans who expect to grill out before Super Bowl XLVIII can think again. The game’s committee CEO, Al Kelly, said there will be no tailgating at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.,  before the game, reports Jane McManus of
“You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in you car,” Kelly said. “And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However you’re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you’re not going to be able to take out a grill and you’re not going to be able to take up more than one parking space. And it’ll all be watched very carefully.” –


This has got to be a bluff. I mean, there is no way Al Kelly is that evil, is there? How could you possibly take away tailgating at the SUPERBOWL. There has to be something in the bible against it, and if there isn’t then I think we should amend that.

This is a travesty on a bunch of different levels. For one, this year the Superbowl happens to be in New York, which, if you don’t own a map, is going to be cold as fuck. Grills and trash can fires are going to be all that keeps fans alive before the game. Secondly, what the hell is everyone going to do all those hours before the game on Superbowl Sunday? Are they expected to just show up on time like some kind of animal? This isn’t soccer, people!

If I know my NFL fans like I think I do, putting the kibosh on tailgating won’t stop these animals.


At least I can rest easy knowing that WWE isn’t this stupid. How were these guys (us)


supposed to finish this much beer


in the parking lot at 10am, without  tailgating? Wouldn’t have happened.
