To answer the question, I haven't been to the Black Hole before to see a game. I almost went to a Gwar concert once though.

Try not to joke about people getting killed. It doesn't become you.
And you're a moderator?

Whew.

It all depends. I don't know about Philly or other tough towns, but Oakland is certainly worse than NO. If you go to a Raiders game wearing the other team's gear, then show up at tailgate here, then you are taking more of a chance than other stadiums. But, if you want a fun, safe time, you likely can do it if you are very low key.

Its in human nature to joke about things that scare them, its a kind of coping mechanism. Try to lighten up a little will you.

Thanks for your replies - dunno what half of them meant. I figure Ill wing it. I usually go to a couple of games a year - almost always in an away stadium (I travel for a living) but this is my first west coast game - except years back in the king dome - and Seattle is a much mellower town than Oaksterdam.

As for the guy who said Oakland was rough I used to live in the lower ninth (90s and Early 00s) so I am used to rough neighborhoods etc.

I just hate having my game spoiled by middle class idiots throwing stuff at me or worse.

We'll see... I usually wear my colors proudly - but will research a little more before hand.

thanks again.

In wake of shootings, 49ers ban tailgating after game starts

CBSSports.com wire reports
Aug. 22, 2011[IMG]file:///Users/johndewitt/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]
One of the victims, a 24-year-old man who reportedly was wearing a T-shirt reading "F--- the Niners," was shot several times in the stomach. Police said he managed to make it to stadium security for help despite the injuries.
The other victim whose condition was upgraded is a 26-year-old man who was beaten unconscious in an upper level stadium restroom during the fourth quarter.
Another shooting victim was treated after receiving superficial facial wounds after the game.

This was in San Francisco. It's much worse in Oakland. I would never go there. Some guy was urinated on a few years ago.

Murders are on the rise in Oakland in 2011. The police chief has indicated they need twice as many cops as they have currently. Collateral damage from drive by shootings is increasing. There were 90 murders there last year. The city is on pace to surpass that. Oakland is consistently ranked in the top 10 most dangerous cities in the country, and usually in the top 5.

Oaksterdam (nice - I like that), as you call it, ain't no place for a decent person to be.
