Plush_Cthulhu: Heh, CenturyLink Field here in Seattle (Seahawks) had the same issue a few years ago.http://seattletimes.com/html/seahawks/2013877469_hawkbeer08.html
proteus_b: yukichigai: Related: I'd like to see a law that requires vendors to use the actual capacity in ounces as the name of the size you purchase.Why should there be such a law? Should there be a law requiring them to offer small and large? Maybe medium as well? Should there be a law requiring them to make a drink of any size you request, at any price? Perhaps a law insuring that they have your favorite beer on tap? I'd like to see a law that requires people like you to be sterilized as soon as your lunacy is detected.
Torion!: Off to look for a quick ratio app.
BizarreMan: I wonder if the 20oz fitting in the 16oz cup (cost per ounce be damned) was due to the people who were pouring the beer not knowing how to properly fill a beer cup and getting way too much head in the bigger cup.
saturn badger: You would still get more beer for $8 for two smalls than $7 for the big one and you have two hands. Figure it out.
bunner: Been caught stealin'. So, business in America is now just, optimally, whatever con you can get away with?
Bob Falfa: How long had this been going on? It should have taken fans about 1 beer to notice this.
yukichigai: If the same company owns both arenas and both are engaging in the same type of fraud, that's definitely a pattern.

Lovely. That'll make the lawsuit go a lot smoother.Related: I'd like to see a law that requires vendors to use the actual capacity in ounces as the name of the size you purchase. No "large" and "small", they can only call it "16oz" and "20oz". Not just for sports arenas either; amusement parks, carnivals, concert venues, outdoor markets... plenty of areas that pull the same crap.So, Starbucks will actually be OK with the Venti, then?
Confabulat: Bob Falfa: How long had this been going on? It should have taken fans about 1 beer to notice this.No kidding! TFA references five years!Five years and no one noticed?
