What are the problems with this judge's thinking?
Unlike police kicking down your door in the middle of the night, sporting events are optional. People choose to go to them, like a movie theatre. Traditionally, the terms of attendence at such events have been up to the people staging the event -- not unlike concerts where the attendees are patted down for glass bottles and other crap that would be dangerous if whipped randomly in the air. If you don't want to be frisked, don't go -- watch the game on TV/cable. There's a huge list of places and events I refuse to go to because I don't agree with some aspect of the "contract". If enough people reacted the same way as I do, economic pressure would force them to reevaluate their positions (or at least think about how much some odious practice is costing them).
