But ESPN's Gregg Easterbrook does:
As Neil deMause points out, "No drinking fountains and a ban on water bottles sounds like not just a terrible idea, but a recipe for lawsuits the first time someone passes out from dehydration on a hot day."Reader Jim Medwid of Alden, New York, attended a recent Bills preseason game and reports: “The concourses are now wider, but all drinking fountains have been removed from the stadium, which prohibits bringing in any kind of bottle, even clear-sided water bottles.” So taxpayers paid $90 million for renovations that force Bills ticket holders to buy $5 water bottles from the concession stands, and guess who keeps the profit.
As the University of Central Florida could tell you, it's not a popular play. However, the NFL isn't really about popular...it's about profitable!
Which, of course, is why those same Bills are "being sold for 10 figures (while also claiming) it requires a new crib after it took state money for the old one."
