Safety Issues at Hanson Field

I saw a couple of people fall trying to go down the steps of the west grandstand.  There are no hand rails in the aisles on the west side.

The two back entrances into the west stands were blocked with TV cameras.  The Fire Marshall would not approve of blocking an exit like that.

Re: Fall 2021 - Week 3 - vs Eastern Washington

A couple of those very long media timeouts could have used a "Sweet Caroline" song or something similar to get the crowd going.   Excellent idea ! Leatherneck Rally Comes Up Short. From the McDonough County Voice: https://www.mcdonoughvoice.com/story/sports/2021/09/18/wiu-ewu-football/840...

The ROTC was not at the game.  So no cannon.
