Big 105.9's 'Illegal' Tailgate Party Must Move!
February 1, 2007 at 3:38 PM (PT)
This morning ALL ACCESS told you about how CLEAR CHANNEL Classic Rock WBGG (BIG 105.9)/MIAMI’s PAUL AND YOUNG RON (PAUL CASTRONOVO and YOUNG RON BREWER) have organized what they’re calling the "World’s Largest ILLEGAL Tailgate Party," to allow all of the angry South FLORIDA football fans who feel the NFL’s policy of not allowing tailgating at the SUPER BOWL a chance to tailgate as if it were SUNDAY.
While a large field adjacent to the stadium was to be used FRIDAY morning (2/2) from 6-10a as the official site of would-be SUPER BOWL tailgaters, late this afternoon ALL ACCESS got word that the city of MIAMI GARDENS threatened thousands of dollars in fines and legal action, including arrests, should th event take place at that location.
"Sadly, the Constitutional Right to Assemble has been tossed out in favor of what the city calls the 'SUPER BOWL Notice to the Public,'" show executive producer STEVE BRANCIK says. "It is a temporary document in effect for what it says will be 'several weeks prior to the event, during the event, and after the event.' It states that the 'city has adopted a zero tolerance' for activities such as fan interactive tailgate parties."
As a result, the event is being moved to a new location to be announced on-air tomorrow at 6a.
