No Big Deal


So tailgaters at FedEx Field have been asked to park in the outer reaches of the lots if they plan to use more than one space. Seems the issue is being way overblown on the part of the hard-core tailgaters.

It's not like the Washington Redskins are requesting fans cease and desist from tailgating. The team simply is asking tailgaters to follow the same rules as everyone else when it comes to parking, that being one space for each car. Sounds pretty reasonable to me.

There's another hidden benefit for tailgaters who prefer to use more than one spot for their pregame food and drink in light of this new policy: quicker exit. The closer you park to the stadium, the longer you wait to get out. The closer you are to the exit, the faster you get home.

Having been a part of many tailgates at many stadiums, I certainly would trade a little longer walk to my seat for being able to get out of the parking lot quicker.
