Great thread Titan!

Thanks for sharing with us!

Excellent thread, more people should do this.

That is pretty awesome you can throw the ball and kick FG's during the tour. I would love to do that.

I would like to go on a tour of the raiders coliseum and take a wizz and possibly a dump in the black hole while dudes dressed as Darth Mad Max and in monkey suits watch.

Before the game I attended a tailgate party with Denver and Dallas fans across the street from the stadium. While in the restroom a group of Cowboy fans saw our Bronco gear and yelled, "Denver!! The Cowboys are going to kick some Bronco ass today!!". "Tough crowd," said a bronco fan next to me. These inebreated Dallas fans were the exception. In general the Cowboy fans were gracious hosts and congratulated us on a good game afterwards. One Dallas season ticket holder told me he had never seen so many visiting team's fans at a Cowboy game. It reminded me of when Pittsburgh plays in Denver where about 1/3rd of the stadium seems to be Steeler fans.
This is good.

It's sad that a lot of the WC teams have an atmosphere that's just flat out unsafe to bring the family to.

Great post! Thanks!!!

On your comment about the lines to the bathroom - I can explain that. Texas passed a "potty parity" law a few decades ago that require buildings to have twice the female restroom capacity. A lot of existing buildings just closed or converted a bunch of men's rooms to women's rooms to comply with the law. It really sucked. In newer buildings this I assume they actually took the law into the design. So while there are twice the number of women's restrooms the crowd probably male.

So glad to finally use that meaningless bit of trivia.

Thanks Que! Now I understand. It really is a problem in what otherwise is a great stadium. I haven't seen restroom lines like that since the old Mile Hi.

What's the logic behind that law? Shouldn't a "potty parity" law require the same number of male and female restrooms?

Titan's quote of a Dallas fan is light. Saying Cowboys will be feasting on Denver doesn't make them dangerous. I will take that comment anytime and anyday being an away fan.

If you think that is unsafe, you should go hang out in a cellar.

Didn't the old stadiums have a 1 to 1 correlation of male bathrooms to female bathrooms anyway? Correct me if I'm wrong on this but I think that for every male bathroom there is in a stadium there is probably a female bathroom too.

if I had to guess it has to do with the idea that women need to sit to pee and require more space than guys who have a ton of urinals for every 1 toilet. That's my guess though.
