Rose Bowl Approves Tailgating Crackdown

Story on NBC LA

Other restrictions include reducing tailgating from 8 to 6 hours before game time, no drinking of alcoholic beverages in tailgating areas after kick-off, no loud music, no large scale parties and requirements to report "excessively boisterous fans" to security.

Very disappointing to me and my fellow tailgaters.  First the start time, my group of friends makes it a point to be in Lot H when it opens - UCLA games are always a full-day affair for us.  Now I expect the entry to the parking lots will be longer - taking longer to set up and considerably less tailgate time.

I'm also very interested to see what the Rose Bowl defines as a "large scale" party and what dB level is considered "loud".  Will it only take one person to complain to make my friends pack up and leave a space we've been in for eight hours? 

No alcohol after kickoff is another thing.  We invariably invite friends to come to tailgates with us and not everyone can get tickets, so the rest of us find someone with flat screens in the parking lot and watch the game from there.  Will it be illegal for us in that case to crack a beer while we watch a football game? 

People I've talked to about this today speculate that it's because of the stabbing at the U$C game, and the Brian Stow case at Dodger stadium, but the Dodgers didn't remove all alcohol from the stadium, they just stepped up a security presence.  Why can't the rose bowl do the same thing?  Zero tolerance rules seem unfair and unnecessary.
