$250 Bronco Tickets with Free Bird Droppings Thrown In
Peyton Manning has Denver Bronco fans as excited about their team since, well, Tim Tebow last year. That excitement causes an already football crazy town to become even more crazy and thus fans spend a lot of money on tickets to go to a game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. After you fork over big bucks, you expect some sort of comfort when you get to your seat at the game, but it seems some fans are getting a little more than they paid for.
Pigeons living overhead these pricey seats are doing their business right into the crowd. Expensive Bronco jerseys, $10 bags of popcorn, and $12 beers are getting topped with a white sauce, and it’s not mayo. Fans in certain sections actually bring towels to the games just to cover their heads with to dodge the falling bullets.
Fans say they reported the problem to several different people working at the game. Employees told them it’s been going on for years. The only thing that has been noticeably done is the placement of a plastic owl to deter the pigeons, but it obviously hasn’t helped the issue.
Andy Gorchov, General Manager of Stadium Management Company, which takes care of maintenance at Sports Authority Field released the following statement:
We strive to ensure that all fans have a positive experience during Broncos games, and their safety and comfort is our No. 1 priority. Unfortunately, outdoor stadiums do sometimes have issues with birds.”
“When these circumstances occur, our stadium staff is instructed to respond immediately and resolve the situation in the most timely and appropriate manner possible. We encourage all guests to contact us if they have an unpleasant experience at our stadium to allow us to provide the absolute highest level of service to them.
