More dangerous then flying in a stadium packed with people? Care to show one of those videos?
As far as the Stadium Operator requiring a "full risk assessment" Who do you think would be doing that? It would be the pilot in command and if he is a Cowboy disparate for work, what do you think he is going to say. Besides most people do not see these things as dangerous. When I fly my copters with people around I am always surprised at how they will just walk up to it as if nothing could go wrong.
