In 1997, when over 60 fistfights broke out at Veterans Stadium in a nationally televised game, prompting Philadelphia to assign a municipal court judge to the stadium on game days in '98, the league might have thought it had a problem.
They also had to put in a jail at the new Lincoln Financial Field for all of their game day issues.
When I went to a Phillies game last year, I was wearing my Cubs hat. I was informed to leave it in the car and buy a new Phillies hat when I got into the game, as they were concerned that I might get a little roughed up wearing my Cubs hat.
Yeah, I think the problem there is that Philly fans are idiots, doesn't matter the sport. It really depends where you go. I can go to Chiefs games decked out in my Broncos gear and only catch a few insults.

I was at the '95 game with the snow ball wars at the Meadowlands. It was the Giants vs. The Chargers. I've been to many NFL games and they will never ban beer. Like he said, at $8/beer its too much revenue. The real issue is security. With proper security you can take care of fights. Threatening to revoke revoke season tickets will also really snap people into line. But really arresting people at the stadium is all it really takes.
