Hopefully it doesn't catch on. They never roll back stupid fake security measures.
Repped for the entire post but just wanted to emphasize the bolded. Earlier this year they were going to allow us to take nail clipper and tiny knives on airplanes, but people complained of all the bloodshed to come and they cancel the common sense change.

The real motives for the NFL's policy are: 1. Catch people trying to sneak in beverages or snacks, and 2. The NFL Security braintrust can say "Hey lookie! We done done some'in'!" Unfortunately next year they will want to done some'in' new.
