This is why football stadium operations directors should always butter their goal posts.
We’re talking about a guy (drunk 34-year-old) who scaled to the very top of the post at a Hamilton vs. Calgary game this past weekend.
If you think dropping posts is dangerous, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Premise of Video: (from vlogger) Sorry so shaky! I was really cold. Guy who climbed goal post at the Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Calgary Stampeders game, Sept. 18 at Ivor Wynne.
Climax of Video: The very beginning. Um, son, you might want to quit drinking, taking drugs, etc. The tightrope walk on the goal post is very impressive, too.
Conclusion: This guy must have ruled gym class rope climbing contests.
The local media was all over this one, even getting this comment from a police officer.
Her son would’ve never forgotten this game.
“Mom, remember that time I asked to see an NFL game and you took me to the Hamilton game instead?”
“You’re the best mom ever!”
Is there a CFL protocol for handling games where a guy fell to his death after climbing goal posts?
“We’d have to suspend play and then make a determination of how we’re going to handle it,” (an official) says.
Yeah, this would probably create some interesting issues, like how to handle the psyche of the quarterback after watching a guy plummet. And the cheerleaders.
You’d need to bring in counselors.
Just so many issues. Our solution. Butter your goal posts.
