Totally agreed. I want nothing more than to drive up to Landover with my 9 year old son to attend a game. But I'm not sure how worth the 6 hour drive, ticket price, parking hassle, etc would be if I have to constantly worry about a drunk, or a fan that can't keep his language under control.

I'm not saying treat this as a game of golf or the opera, because I can get as loud and boisterous as the rest of the fans, but I keep myself in control (no matter how horrible we play, or how many stupid mistakes we make), especially with youth present.

Bad language is the least of my worries when it comes to taking a young kid or my wife to a game, my real concern was always the drunk who was itching for a fight because he overheard you say something he didnt agree with. The combination of a violent game and booze seemed to cause some guys (usually on their only day they get a hall pass) to grow beer muscles and get violent.

I didn't see a ton of games at RFK, but did see a few and remember the occassional drunk moron. I usually get to one game at Fed-Ex per year and the obnoxious drunk is now more the norm rather than the exception.

Call security and have them removed from the game. Problem solved.

Re: I'm Tired of Losing

I have been to around 14 games at fedEx and maybe only once or twice would I have had an issue with having a child with me. Most Of the time people around use have been pretty good. If in those cases I had children I would have addressed the issue.

Really I only see this problem at preseason games and somehow it's EVERY preseason game. I guess it's because the tickets go for so much cheaper and ANYONE can buy them. I mean face it, $10-$30 upper levels and lower levels, who wouldn't right?

I mean I see some during regular season, but for the most part it's just preseason games I see these types of loony toons.
