This article touches on something that can be contributed to many factors including, but not limited to, alcohol consumption and building codes. 2000-2009 North American sporting events have witnessed three deaths related to spectators falling over railings of an upper deck. The article discusses both deaths and injuries associated with the spectators falling from the upper decks, it also includes the argument of buidling codes. International building codes require a minimum height of 42 inches for any railing on the upper concourse of a stadium, whereas the minimum railing height building code in North America is a mere 28 inches.
Fourteen students from a sports management class at Northeastern Junior College were recently able to tour Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver as part of their learning outside of the classroom experience.
I selected this article strictly because this would be a great experience for those of us who are looking to make this a career. Even though I desire to be an Athletic Director and currently work security, it is of great benefit to have knowledge of the inner workings of sports stadiums, arenas and complexes.
The video article went over the three year process of the renovation and expansion of the largest stadium in North America, University of Michigan's Big House. Built in 1927, the Big House needed 21st century improvements to put up with the demands of a stadium that houses more than 110,000 fans on Saturday's. The construction crew went to great links to insure the safety of the spectators since they continued construction throughout the college football season for three years, each and every Thursday throughout the football season the crew would close down the site and clear everything for the game on Saturday. Maybe the article is not about "crowd management" exactly, but it does take into consideration the management of the crowd's safety.

Scott J. Fields's insight:
This video article is really interesting, especially considering the recent news regarding the deployment of surveillance drones over American soil. Personally, my friends and I follow Alex Jones, and I voted for Ron Paul in the last two elections, so I find the fact that our government and her agencies want to use surveillance drones on her citizens. This broadcast is from Alex Jones' Nightly InfoWar News and talks about not only sheriff departments in California who want to use drones for crowd surveillance, but also a new drone that can enter and exit buildings via doors and windows. Not exactly what I want, but I do see how using it in crowd situations can benefit crowd safety and management, especially when crowds always exceed security and police personal.
The article is about crowd management in sports though it mostly centers around the Olympic Summer Games. An American company, Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC) is hired to handle the opening and closing ceremonies during the 2004 Olympic Summer Games in Athens, Greece. They discuss the five reasons for corwd management, which have essentially been around since ancient Olympia, around 776 B.C.
Also discssed within the article, the 2004 Malice in the Palace, an NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers, which see's the player formly known as Ron Artest jump into the stands with other players and picking fights with spectators. Truly one of the most indelible images of my sports life.
