Looks Like Monday Night Football Featured Some Barbed Wire Fencing



If the NFL ever wants to crackdown on stadium security, perhaps they should take a closer look at Azteca Stadium where people are kept in check by intimidating barbed wire fences.

ESPN cameras captured the prison-like atmosphere from the upper levels during Monday Night Football:

An old LA Times article from 1993 touched on the purpose of the barbed wire fence:

To discourage soccer hooligans, the field is surrounded by an eight-foot-wide, four-foot-deep moat. On the field side of the moat, there is a seven-foot-high chain-link fence. Inside the moat, strands of barbed wire are angled toward the seats.

We can’t argue with the concept — neither me nor BC Joe have found a fan fight video (yet).
