Stadium Views


Really, you put a fence up! Why don’t you just take the season tickets away from everybody right now! by gpiv

One bottle of beer in the fridge.

I was at the store today and everybody that is around the Stadium is up in arms.

And if you think that is bad wait til the out of ‘town people get here.

If good fences make good neighbors, bad fences mak a lot of enemies.

I propose that what ought to be done is a silent protest.  Since they choose to segregate their tournament from the rest of the world, let’s segregate their vendor from the rest of the world.

NO ONE SHOULD BUY A THING FROM THE VENDOR INSIDE THE FENCE!  EVERYONE SHOULD CHOOSE TO BOYCOT THOSE VENDORS BECAUSE OF THE ACTIONS OF WHOEVER IS TO BLAME, AND I AM NOT SURE THAT WE WILL EVER FIND OUT WHO IS TO BLAME. 

BUT LET THEM SUFFER FOR THEIR ACTIONS.

Omaha is not an armed camp.  A fence that has not been needed for 60 years is not necessary today.

If I was the mayor of Omaha, I would not like my legacy to be that I put a fence around Rosenblatt Stadium

As if he will have a legacy.

Just one more step in taking the College World Series away from the people and especially away from the people of the City of Omaha.  Take the tickets away from them now rather than waiting to take them away with your seat licenses.

Can somebody just be up front  here.

Those of us who love the College World Series and love the experience see the fence as a metaphor for the barrier that will be driven between the college baseball fan and the College World Series.  The powers that be care no more for the fan on the street than they care for the student athlete or the little vendor. 

Fences are about control and power and not about  friendship and a feeling of being welcome.

This is not about bitterness.  It is about anger.

We hold these  truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…….

The right not to be lied to.  The right not to be shut out  from what we have done for thirty or more years.  The right to come and go as we please.

This is not a safety issue.  If they want to address a safety issue they need to address the 2011 College World Series wherein the Stadium is but 20 feet away from the street and the threat of a Oklahoma City type attack is imminent.  This Stadium has been n safe for over 60 years and to throw a fence up on the eve of the closing of the Stadium is another huge waste of money on the part ;of the city and a slap in the face of all the regular College World Series Goers that have made this event the great event that it is.

I am not that grown up or up to date.  I am a simpler creature, tied to more primitive patterns and cycles.  I need to believe that something lasts forever, that baseball lasts forever……..

Forever ended yesterday

A fence ended it.

PIV! I agree! They are only having 8 entrances into the stadium, and everyone in the parking lot has to tear down their tents every night and reclaim a space for the next day. I saw on the news the Police Chief said that It was for “crowd safety and we expect a record number of fans this year”.. Has there been any pedestrian injuries around the stadium that could be prevented by a huge prison fence? Not that I recall. Why does it seems that the most anticipated time of the year for a lot of us locals seem to be taken away from us little by little every day as we get closer. I wonder what they’ll try to enforce tomorrow at Opening Ceremonies.

Once again Piv, you have verbalized exactly what the rest of us are feeling. I spoke to the CWS office today and confirmed that only season ticket holders will be able to tailgate. They may be the worst off, because there are signs on the fences claiming no alcohol is allowed on stadium grounds. I’m predicting a lot more keggers on the lawns of the Rosenblatt neighborhood and HUGE bottlenecks at the gate entrances. Will be interesting, for sure!

We really need to put our focus back on the players, their families and their fans and help make the most of the situation.
