I'm legitimately curious about your thoughts on alcohol, mainly because I only get to go to 2-3 home games a year while I'm in Jersey for Christmas. Do people really buy enough $9+ beers to get drunk enough to act that way? It would just surprise me if so many people have the disposable income to get hammered at the arena alone. I feel like that sort of behavior would be the result of people pre-gaming at bars or with their own booze rather than alcohol sold by the Devils, which makes the Devils helpless to do much other than make sure people aren't bringing flasks into the arena. I'd also be curious to see what sort of revenue the team makes from beer sales- I'd assume putting heavier restrictions on alcohol sales would have a negative effect on them financially, which is why I doubt there would be any huge changes.
Personally,I get drunk at the bar, then maintain my buzz, stupidly, with $9 beers. I hate myself for paying that the next day when I check my cash supply...
As for restrictions...that's not feasible. How can you stop a person from just going to different vendors? Will they buy license scanners and scan it each time? That seems like a bit much.
