Default No Bags/Purses to Games

Quote:
The NFL is now prohibiting purses and other similar bags from pro football stadiums.

A team source alerted PFT to the looming change in the NFL’s policy regarding bags. The NFL has confirmed that the policy, primarily intended to enhance safety, was revised based on the recommendation of the Stadium Security and Fan Conduct Committee.

Fans will be encouraged to bring no bags of any kind to NFL stadiums. Starting with the 2013 preseason, only certain bags will be permitted.

Specifically, the bags must be clear, and they must be made of plastic, vinyl, or PVC. The dimensions may not exceed 12 inches by six inches by 12 inches. Alternatively, fans may bring a one-gallon Ziploc (product placement!) freezer bag.

OK this ranks up there on the WTFometer. Seriously, women can't bring their ordinary purses? There hasn't been a single incident at an NFL stadium making this even paranoid reasonable.

Stupid! I'm not sure this helps their campaign to get more fans to attend games. Another reason (in addition to drunks, parking, stupid fans, cost, etc) why the wife and I are happy campers at home watching on the 52 come game time.

The TSA has already done random screening on the metro rail. Would you really be surprised if they took over stadium security? Would you be surprised if they were working with the NFL to determine entry point security?

This is bull**** I don't like that I am going to have to pack my camera and hopefully not out in a rainstorm when the game ends and expose it to the elements.

Yup, I got it shortly after the LCDs first came out. Then, it was considered one of the best and the price was proof of that. It pisses me off walking through stores seeing LCDs and LEDs larger than mine at a much cheaper price. Oh well, I loved it then and I'm still enjoying it.

The next one will cover the entire wall

Default Re: No Bags/Purses to Games

Don't worry, I'm absolutely sure the NFL is going to start selling see-through purses/bags with team logos on them for an exorbitant price. Feels kind of odd that they are talking about increasing the in-game experience to try to get people to come to the stadiums and not watch at home, while doing this.

I had one guy try to pull the wool over my eyes, noticed a large bulge
and questioned what it was..he proceeded to pull out several liquor
bottles which he was attempting to bring in and was forced to dump
out before he was allowed entry

but glad to see the NFL taking initiative to make games more fan friendly
Do you think that there is a chance that because of the new safer bags, that security presence will be lower, and the guards who are on duty, will check the bags less than before when they had to look through a rucksack?

Looking at the official NFL approved bags they're selling - it would be incredible easy to sticky tape a joint/bag of coke behind that big NFL/team logo, so that anything less than a glance at the contents of the bag wouldn't spot it.

I know it also doesn't affect you guys as much, but having gone to watch football up in Seattle people might be underestimating the value of being able to take a waterproof rucksack to the game for ponchos/rainjackets when the inevitable mid game downpour on the exposed section of the stadium begins.

Same. I think this is mostly targeted at people who like to smuggle in their own alcohol. I guess binocular cases/bags are also out of bounds with these new rules.

Default Re: No Bags/Purses to Games

I'm wondering who the genius is that determined 4.5 X 6.5 was the largest purse allowed? Did they measure a Kotex pad or something? Is there research that says people smuggle bombs in a 6 X 8 bag, but they don't fit in a 4.5 X 6.5 bag? It just seems like such an arbitrary set of numbers. Even 6 X 8 would make looking for something compliant a LOT easier.

I'm going to try my luck with an ever-so-slightly oversized purse at training camp next week. The smallest thing I have is 4.5 X 7.5 and it's tiny. It will hold my keys, phone, license, credit card, and cash, but nothing else. I'll be interested to see if they're out there with a ruler.

I'm not ready to give up tickets, but I have to admit the more it becomes a hassle the less I want to go. If the NFL wants to get women and children out of their stadiums this is a step in the right direction.

No bags? So titan fan can't bring his/her brown paper bag to wear on their head? That just doesn't seem fair.

Default The new "no purse" rule!

Is anyone as thoroughly disgusted with this stupid rule as I am. Oh wait, you can now buy a CLEAR NFL bag. THey have them for SALE at the store and the website. Well of course they do. Since women make up about 40% of the fan base that attend games, think of the money they will make off of these "plastic" purses. Of course you need one with your teams's logo on it. I have an idea. They buy back the 4 NFL Texan bags I own right now and GIVE me a clear plastic one. Ugh!

I am really put out over this!
