So it's just as I suspected. You had a bad experience at a Slayer show, and now you think that all Slayer shows are going to be that way - with drunk old fucks in the crowd throwing punches and beating on people. That's what the dictionary calls a "generalization".

You didn't say it, but your comments implied it. As further evidence of your bias, I submit some more of your own words:

If you had stopped at the word "drunks", you would have been fine. The fact that you intentionally felt the need to add that the drunks who cause problems are older than you, reinforces the fact that you are biased against the older members of the crowd - otherwise you wouldn't feel the need to keep bringing it up.

Go back and read your original post, word for word, and put yourself in the shoes of someone who doesn't know what your actual intentions are. To me, your statement clearly implied that if you go to any Slayer shows in the near future, you'll be staying away from the pits because there are bound to be older individuals at those shows (presumably because Slayer has been around for a long time), and it is specifically those older individuals who will be (a) drunk, and (b) causing trouble.

...and your second post only seems to confirm this theory even further.

You dick. Actually, I have better things to do, like getting ready for tonight's Metalliance show. I'll just have to be careful not to get drunk and manhandle any of you little sissies in the pit. I have a tendency of doing that, because I'm old and angry and can't handle my booze.

I've been hearing that All That Remains, 5FDP, Lacuna Coil are likely for Uproar. I also hear Mastodon has something in the works for this summer, as well as Anthrax. Not sure if or where these bands tie in at, but would not be suprised to see the Zombie/Slayer tour attached to those bands as opening acts.

Ive actually had bad experiences 3 of the last 4 times Ive seen Slayer, and every single time its been someone significantly older and hammered


if we were talking about a different band like Disturbed, them Ive seen and they've had obnoxious drunks more in the 20s/30s range

but when Im been at Slayer shows the assholes usually have beer guts, grey hairs, and tattoos so faded they're illegible



now at no point did I say everyone going was and old drunk asshole, or that everyone over the age of 40 is an asshole, you can keep complaining or just accept the statement

one of the best shows I ever saw was Priest with H&H, THAT was an older crowd but everyone was just having fun and no one was being a dick

I absolutely felt the need to point it out because if youre 15-20 years(or more) older than me and you smell like booze and are constantly trying to fight people, well, youre an asshole(you would be one at any age really, but it's worse when it reaches that point)
