Default Official Tailgate (improvements)

I thought last year's tailgate was brilliant and very fun indeed. Im curious to see as what others think can be done this year to have a even better experience at the tailgate. Here is a few i thought of

* Play areas (have a shot at throwing a ball through a moving target) etc ,etc

* Have maybe a ex nfl player or someone related greatly to the game signing autographs at a meet a ex player section or something similar. (Ticket grants you entry to this section for 1 time only, then tailgate ticket will be ripped in half or taken away from guest)

* The 2 merchandise stands for AFC and NFC were great , though maybe have one other decent sized stand that will sell merchandise for the 2 teams playing , Broncos and 49ers . So the majority of fans who are looking for merchandise of fans dont take up queues greatly for the afc,nfc stands.

*Also i know there where 1 jersey for most teams at the merchandise kiosk at the tailgate but MAYBE on nfluk.com fans can vote for what jersey of each team they wish to be available to purchase. As i think some of the players they had up were a bit questionable at that time and others could of sold like hotcakes.

* The weather last year was great for the game but we can never be too sure so if possible IF (have a gigantic marquee set up)

Last year, the Buccs and Pats had a stall each on the concourse (not at the tailgate) around the outside of the stadium.

i think that some of these ideas would be great especially the ball throwing one. People could win a match ball if they get a certain score which would give people incentive to try but there would need to be more than one stall to make sure that everyone gets a go.

Yeah though i couldnt help but notice the amount of fans from both bucs and pats queuing up for actual pats or bucs merchandise , dont get me wrong there will be fans from those 2 who want other teams merchandise but it would be alot speedier if there was another stand for the 2 teams playing. I remember there was a fan who waited in line for a long time looking to buy a patriots jersey , he was in the NFC merch stand and was told to go to the AFC tent despite them having a tom brady game jersey on display.

Yeah or maybe if you hit a target you get a a prize like a small keyring or something. Also make the play event for all ages so its not just for teens and adults so even the younger kids can have a chance at playing and winning something.

Change that to Woodley or Polamalu and you might be on to something. Not that I don't like Harrison but he's getting on a bit and won't be a Steeler for much longer.

they had some kicking and passing competitions at the saints chargers tailgate 2 years ago it worked well queues were long as expected but most people stayed with it

the main problem with having them is if it is raining it is a big insurance and health and safety issue
