I guess New Jersey is too classy for tailgating, taxis, limos or even being able to just walk up to the stadium.

Well, if I had been considering going, this would stop me. Did you see the cost of the bus you MUST take 'cause you cannot park and walk?

Sorry, I'm not buying that this is all in the name of protection from terrorists, etc.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Do they have a spot for campers/motorhomes to park? That happens around here a lot.

I live and work within a few miles of the stadium, and I'm already dreading the traffic that weekend. eek

I hope there's a raging blizzard that Sunday. It would serve the NFL right for something so moronic as scheduling a Super Bowl in an outdoor stadium in a cold climate.

What if you have a smart car or mini cooper and you sit in a chair at the end of your parking space? Will the chair police still arrest you?

Also you can have a drink in your car? What about beer? Drinking in a car even if you aren't going to go anywhere is easily an APC charge.

the superbowl is not for the average football fan, it is a corporate event, many corporations will take over the parking lot and host their own pre-game party, with tents in bad weather, bands, food, drink, etc. many also arrange transportation to and from the game for their attendeees...

If you drive a smart car or mini cooper to the stadium, I would almost guarantee some of our local inebriates will pick it up and move it somewhere else. shocked

my favorite is the commercials Bud Light is playing about winning a stay on a luxury cruise ship docked in NYC, concerts on the boat, and tickets to the game. I really like when they show "game day" that everyone is wearing nothing more than a light jacket or pullover...

yeah, not gonna happen, people...

See, I like the idea of a Snow Bowl. Did you see how fun the philadelphia/Detroit game was?

And as an added bonus, all the NFL bigwigs and sports writers can be miserable all week. I hope they hold the next one on a frozen pond in Mystery, Alaska.

On a serious note, did the CFPB write these superbowl rules?

No, because if they had, there would be a final rule, a final final rule, and a final final final rule.

Not to mention over 1800 pages of guidance on how to fill out a simplified form.

I was thinking more along the lines of how ridiculous it will be to comply with the rules. Don't walk up to the stadium. Don't take a cab or limo. The parking lot can only handle 13,000 cars (which is probably like, what, 10-15% of attendees?).

But here, you can pay $50 and ride this city bus to and from the stadium. So 80,000 people will do this? Imagine how long the rides will be.... two hours driving around the city picking up fans beforehand... then another three after dropping off all the drunk and freezing fans... half of them happy, half peeved their team lost.... yeah. This is a great idea.

crazy
