Remember, not all college students are 21 and over. Again, why should we allow a product to be promoted that is illegal for a large portion of the participants, i.e. those playing and watching?


Drinking is for losers...and drunk drivers! It's not that hard to see that the companies that advertise beer and liquor on TV are just taking your money from you. It can take your life away from you drink by drink and where are the companies when you need a hand up from that hole you create for yourself and family?


I vote we ignore or tevo the adds but ban alcohol from sporting events. The amount of alcohol related deaths on campus pale in comparison to the alcohol related deaths world wide at sporting events. I would love to take my kids to professional or college event and not have to explain what the words mean the drunk idiot is yelling next to us!
