I've been to maybe 30 Dodger games the last 3 years, have never seen or experienced a single incident. That being said I sit in a Season Ticket holder area in the Loge section just off of Home Plate. If you come dressed in Giant gear you're liable to get some good natured ribbing but act like an adult and you will have no problem.
There is no way in hell I'd even bother going to a game and sit up in the reserved section. Sorry, just too many drunk assholes who are slime not just at Dodger stadium, but everywhere they go in life. I'd rather stay home and watch it in Hi-Def than share a game with this trash. A rash generalization I know but one small group of people can ruin an entire section/fan experience. The Dodgers have an 800 number you can call or text to report abusive fans during the game, more people need to use it.

And don't think this problem is unique to LA or couldn't happen in Frisco:

A San Carlos man pleaded guilty Thursday to involuntary manslaughter for the one-punch death of another man in a fight outside San Francisco's AT&T Park during a San Francisco Giants game in 2008, a prosecutor said.

Taylor Buckley agreed to a plea bargain this morning that includes one year in jail and five years of probation for his role in the death of 18-year-old Anthony Giraudo on May 9, 2008, San Francisco Assistant District Attorney Brian Buckelew said.

Buckley, who was also 18 at the time, punched Giraudo in the heat of an argument outside the stadium during the Giants game.

Giraudo, a baseball player who had been attending Canada College in Redwood City, fell and struck his head on the pavement, and died the next day at San Francisco General Hospital.

Prosecutors contend Buckley sucker-punched Giraudo once on the side of the face with a closed fist, but did not charge Buckley with murder because the killing was deemed not to have occurred with malice.

Mets fans are the most agitating fan base in all of sports. I hate them....it transcends sports hate.



The 88 playoffs I sat next to a Met fan during game 6 of the NLCS. Most obnoxious prick I've ever sat next to. ;) I can still hear him saying "Go Nails!" and "Wallleeeee!".
Worse they beat the Dodgers that day to force game 7.
Sweet revenge of course Hershiser blew them away the next day to lead the Dodgers to the World Series and as they say, the rest is history.

can't be.....I once saw Goober pull the "citizen's arrest" on Barney for doing an illegal u-turn in the middle of Mayberry.


LOL! First thing I thought of when I read that.

Bay Area vs Bay Area.
Pathetic.

-- A man wearing a "F- the 49ers" T-shirt was shot outside Candlestick Park shortly after the end of Saturday night's preseason game between the Raiders and 49ers, a police sergeant said.
He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where his condition was called critical as of 10 p.m. Saturday.

Hope it's not the Raiders who come back to Los Angeles.

Seems it's not safe to go to professional sporting events anymore. It's more relaxing watching from home anyway.
