We may all live in a great big global community, but in my Blog, it's my world.

I can see this one perhaps heading for the courts, but of course it probably won't happen until well after this year's big event is over and done.

See article here: Tailgating Forbidden On Super Bowl Sunday (CBS4 Miami original article)

As noted in that article, no law is known to forbid tailgating at Dolphin's stadium, but that isn't stopping the No Fun League from denying the people that want to take part in the traditional football Sunday festivities (tailgating) the opportunity or right to do that tailgating.  The N.F.L. is of course claiming it's all for security reasons and that may be true, but getting away with a ban for a distance of as much as a 1 mile radius around the stadium would seem to mean they are going well above and beyond anything that they'd have the right to do.

Unless the N.F.L. has paid a considerable price to all private property owners in the area, I don't expect that they'd have much right to do anything there.  Of course they may have done so, and if that is the case, then they can govern over the areas they are paying for as they see fit -- even if it means they behave like NAZI's in the process.

Glad I don't have tickets for the Super event.  I'd rather watch it on TV anyway (if I care to watch it at all...)

It has nothing to do with law or government.  Just the fricking NFL and its gestapo tactics!  I am getting really tired of their stupidity.  Since NO did not make it, I guess I will just boycott the stupid game!

if I remotely gave half a shit about pro football I'd say that sucks. But...since i don't, I'll keep my mouth shut.

That's crazy. Dolphin Stadium is perfect for tailgating. In fact, they created each parking space with a place to tailgate directly behind it. I was at the Orange Bowl there a couple of weeks back and the set up is brilliant.

The ban seems a little crazy.

Well, if the NFL makes this running policy, they're not gonna like it if the Packers ever make it back.

Come to think about it, Bears fans are pretty good tailgaters themselves. Here's hoping the ghost of George Halas comes by to shove a corncob up the commish's rear end!
