On another note....a dad of 4 needs to just say "you got it" and walk away.
When I lived in CA I really enjoyed the Big A. Never had a desire to visit "Thug Stadium."

I used to go to Angels Stadium when the Red Sox were in town. First couple of years I lived here it was great. The last couple of times I went (which was 8-10 years ago) myself and everyone around me that had Red Sox gear on was getting pelted with trash and beer and had a few gang members in the stands trying to start fights. Maybe the thugs just come out to Angel stadium when good teams come to town but I noticed a drop off of the quality of fans in the stands over about 5 years of attending games there. It's been a while so maybe it's gotten better but it seemed like that Dodger mentality was making it's way south.

This is par for the course for Dodger Stadium.

I still enjoy going to games and it's generally fine, but the stadium definitely attract folks who are less interested in the game and more into the "social" aspect of drinking and perhaps trading fists if the opportunity presents itself. Somewhat akin to what you see with soccer hooliganism in England (and other parts of Europe).

It's not to say that other ballparks have fans with flawless behavior, but Dodger Stadium continues to have violent incidents. It doesn't help that Dodger Stadium has some of the cheapest tickets in baseball. With the multi-billion dollar deal with Time Warner, they want to keep ticket prices low to attract people to games and get them to spend money on ridiculously overpriced beer, but unfortunately you get low lifes that want to come and stir trouble. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out you have gang members (or ex-gang members) attending games. At least it's not like when McCourt ran the team and in order to drive attendance, they had two-for-one beer specials to, which is total fuel for violence.

There's a reason why you don't hear about these types of physical altercations at Cubs and Red Sox games for instance. Even in LA, you don't hear about any of this nonsense at a Lakers game. Tickets are so expensive that low lifes are priced out.

They dont know how to have a nice family outing. They consider that "lame" and to be honest, I dont think they could because they are uncivilized.
Pathetically sad! Back in the 80s and 90s going to Dodger stadium was like going to Disneyland.

That’s true it used to be fun. Angels Stadium too. I used to get free box seats when I wanted to go to Dodger Stadium which I would refuse now for sure. I am really sad for the employees that have to work there and deal with the attendees , I wonder if ticket and vendor sales are dropping?

You beat me too it. Anything cheap or inexpensive.....sporting event, restaurant, neighborhood, car....usually comes with unwanted consequences, but not necessarily unexpected ones.

We have nobody to blame but ourselves if we're over the age of about 35. We're the ones who created and raised this generation of useless subhumans.

What if we are over the age of 35 but didn't create anyone until we were over 35?

The last Dodger game I attended was in 2002, when the Red Sox were in town. I was still on active duty, so no problem carrying a sidearm into the stadium. Thought I was going to have to use it, considering the actions of a large group of unruly patrons adjacent to my seat. Since I get Dodger games on TV, it makes no sense even thinking about going downtown to see a game.

My last trip to Angel Stadium was in 2009, again to see the Red Sox. I couldn't believe the Anaheim police presence, both inside and outside of the stadium. I had no problem carrying off-duty inside the ballpark, although, as far as I could see, everyone was behaving and civil.
