The same people bitching about it now will be the same people crying and wondering why nothing was done when there is an incident.

My main point is that everyone has been told WELL in advance. Some folks act like just because they buy a ticket they're entitled to something more than a seat. If "you" don't like it, don't go. We all know damn well that seat will be resold in minutes.
I personally don't have an issue with them trying to protect people's security.

I do have an issue with them creating a 'security policy' that is in my opinion, an incredibly transparent cash grab.

If they were interested in security of the fans, they'd be implementing high tech x-ray machines like those seen at airports for your bags - not charging $10 for a bag which is going to be landfill fodder before the end of the season.

The NFL has created a security policy here that maximizes their profit margin, not one that keeps the fans safest.
