The Coliseum seated over 50,000 and the sports were bloody. The Romans used to flood the Coliseum and have Naval battles. Exotic animals such as lions, elephants, panthers, etc were imported from Africa and would wage battle against each other or man. The Yale Bowl and LA Coliseum are designed after the coliseum in Rome.
