Tailgaters Unite! Sign the Petition Today!
August 19, 2011
At stadiums across the country, fans are losing their rights to tailgate. From limiting tailgating time, requiring a ticket to hang out in the parking lot and even banning grills, new rules and restrictions are making tailgating an endangered art. Now’s your chance to save the tailgate: Help us reach 10,000 signatures by signing the petition here and we’ll fight for your tailgating rights!
Tailgater Bill of Rights
- Stadium parking lots shall be open for all tailgaters at least 24 hours before kick-off.
- Anyone with a passion for football or grilling shall be allowed to tailgate in the stadium parking lot, not just fans with tickets to the game.
- Fans can always bring their own grills to the stadium, preferably ones that use charcoal. Gas is for cars, not food!
- Each tailgate spot should be allowed to have a table and tent as long as you bring enough grub to share with your neighbors.
- Tailgating tunes can (and should!) be played. Turn up the music and fire up the grill!
- Tailgaters shall be allowed to bring a cooler of food and cold beverages to the parking lot to enjoy before heading into the stadium.
And remember, if you can’t make it to the stadium to root for your favorite team on game day, a backyard tailgate shall be deemed just as good.
So join your fellow tailgaters in the fight by signing the petition here and stay tuned for tailgating recipes, tips and more!

What would game day be without great Tail-Gating to invigorate the senses and get everyone "hungry for the game"?
A GREAT IDEA!!!!
Where do I sign Where can I sign. If they stop Tail-Gating then attendance will take a big blow.
Seriously? Have you thought about this? I am a die hard griller. I LOVE Lambeau Field. They go together like brats and beer. I could not however, imagine allowing non-ticketed people to tailgate since there isn't enough room for ticketed people. Secondly, although it would be fun to tailgate all night, what a mess it would be. People drinking for 24 hours. Yeah, that's not asking for trouble. lol. Another couple of hours would be nice for those more time intensive recipes but security problems and the associated mess that would come with an "all nighter" is asking for trouble. Love the rest of the Bill of Rights! IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON!
