A man in his 50's was killed at a Dolphins/Patriots game last week. The fighting at NFL games has always been bad, but is totally out of control these days. It was one of the major reason we gave up our season tickets - literally every single game there were fist fights, whether it be in the tailgating areas, the concourses or the stands. Just pathetic behavior among alleged adults.

I wonder if the viral effect of all these videos increases the amount of fighting.

I'll never forget the Cards/Cowboys game in the 90's, at SDS, watching a guy get carried down on a backboard, from the way upper area of the North Endzone. It was a packed house and a big fight broke out and one dude went tumbling down...so bad that it required the backboard.

No one wants to get involved. They just want to capture it on their phone.

The NFL has the power to bring the worst things out of the worst people. Add the cozy relationship with booze providers, and it's even more unsurprising and gross.

100%. In the UK for example, no alcohol is allowed in the stands. They can drink in the breezeways only.

That's one of the reasons I gave up my season tickets several years ago. Got tired of all the BS that goes on in the stands.

Does the Cardinals stadium have a non-alcoholic/family friendly section? I thought at one time they did...When I lived in San Diego, I would always get tickets in that section of Qualcomm Stadium.
