The attitude seems to be “get there early or tough luck.”.And if you think getting in was the only problem, I’m including a fan’s account of how hard it was to get out of the Coliseum on Saturday night.
Note: This fan waited 15 minutes for pedestrian traffic to die down.
“Getting out was no picnic either, especially since I have to use a cane. I have seats in Section 12, so I thought I would be able to get out of Gate 14, and into Lot 2. Gate 14 was closed because I guess they wanted to set up early for media coming in for the Rams game the day after. I thought I could try getting out of Gate 16, but I couldn’t even get that far.
“There was too much of a bottleneck in front of the women’s restrooms in front of Section 14 and 15 for me to try. I had to walk back, and try to exit Gate 11, which was closed because it was the exit closest to where the buses were I believe. Then Gate 8 was closed because that was next to the Fox trucks, so I had to exit Gate 6. To get to Lot 2, I had to walk down Bill Robertson, alongside the West side of the Swim Stadium to south end of the Swim Stadium (Park Dr.). To boot, I had to walk upstream on Bill Robertson back to Lot 2, because only one sidewalk was open due to the buses.”
