OKC Mayor wants to shut down Thunder Alley

After a shooting in Bricktown marred a big victory for the Thunder Monday night, Oklahoma City's mayor Mick Cornett said the wildly popular "Thunder Alley" has to change. An estimated 10,000 fans gathered outside Chesapeake Energy Arena downtown to watch the game on a big screen to go with 19,000 inside the arena. "The city manager and I spent some time with the chief of police and many members of our security detail (Monday)," said Mayor Cornett to News 9 in OKC. "We came to the conclusion that the manner in which we have known as 'Thunder Alley' has taken place and continued to grow just can't continue."

OKC mayor says 'Thunder Alley' can't continue in current form - CBSSports.com

Yeah that never seemed like a good idea , 10,000 people outside the arena with little police oversight ... Kinda of scary. Those kinds of things only work in San Antonio

I agree with that statement.

If security is an issue, then the Thunder should simply spend the money and take care of that.

It's too bad good ol' American (albeit Hillbilly) fun in a town with nothing to do has to be ruined by some.

Only a bunch of Okies would shoot each other in a victory celebration, right outside the arena

Said it before and I'll say it again, the best thing to come out of Oklahoma is an empty bus.
