Oh sorry, I had looked for another post. Actually couldn't believe there wasn't one. I'm still irritated.

We will eventually enter the era of TD Garden where only clutch bags are allowed now.........or some college stadiums where NO bags are allowed.

Dropped my PSLs after the '08 season and stopped giving them money directly a few years ago. I hate to say it, but I can envision a time when the NFL is like MLB to me, if they continue doing a lot of the stuff they've begun under Goodell. *shrug* We shall see.

I am really put out over this!
Don't forget the official designer Texans clutch purse that the gals are sure to run out and buy.

The mini purses now available are too large ( 7.5" H x 10.5" W x 1" D) to pass...........unless your wife has the hands of large adult gorilla.

I say one of the ladies should decorate a sensibly sized purse with Matt Schaub paraphernalia. When told by Texans staff that they purse does not comply, they can pull out their iPhone and ask the official "for the record...are you saying that Matt Schaub is not clutch?"

Default Re: No Bags/Purses to Games

Kinda makes you ill just reading it.

Quote:
•Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags will be available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com), or

•One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

•Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.

•An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.
Link

I'm with Silvrhand - A lawsuit does seem in order. Gee, the cushions I bought from you, in your stadium, for use in your stadium can no longer be brought? Or the bags you distributed? How convenient that you just happen to be marketing new bags that will meet your requirements.

What a crock of $hit!

The Eagles response to the new policy and the fan reaction:

Quote:
So, to help fans adjust, the Eagles will distribute complimentary team bags to all season-ticket holders during the week of July 22. One bag will be distributed for each season ticket.
LINK

I guess this is somewhat helpful, although it does nothing for those buying single game tickets.

The other thing that I noticed - which may be of interest to a number of folks here - is that the policy is also in place for all TC practices that are open to the public.

What a goofy policy.

If someone was intent on doing something evil, there is a bottleneck of people at every entrance. Someone could do something sinister and hurt a lot of folks before they even get to enter the gates. Same results on national news.

They may claim its for for security reasons. I think it is so they can sell more concessions.

Default Re: No Bags/Purses to Games

Here is an alternate opinion (at least alternate from the one's posted in this thread)...
Quote:
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - I am a woman and yes, I am ecstatic about the NFL’s new handbag policy. Like many women do, I also own many large handbags that could fit a small animal or portable appliance. Do I bring these bags to professional sporting events? Yes, sometimes I do. However, many, many times over the years, I have worried about the backpack and handbag contents of people around me.

...

Reliant Stadium holds 71,500 people, not including employees, concession workers, players, and team officials. It has occurred to me nearly every time I go through stadium security with my kids, that it would only take one looney tune to bring a homemade bomb or explosive to target 71,500 people in an enclosed space. I am, by far, not a paranoid person who sits around watching 24-hour news channels all day long. Life is unpredictable and the world is changing. It’s sad but we need to deal with it. Don’t show me the stats (or lack thereof) on explosives at U.S. sporting events. I am sure that would not give the killed or maimed Boston Marathon victims any solace, and it does not give me any solace either. If someone on that marathon committee had suggested banning backpacks, fanny packs and running drink packs, perhaps many would have been in an uproar as well prior to April 15, 2013. Do we want to endure another national tragedy before acting?
This woman says it's a good idea. Other than installing X-ray machines (which will probably be reflected in higher ticket prices) and scanning everyone who goes thru the gates, I'm not sure what the alternatives are.

Further, since I don't carry a purse anyway, I really don't think I should "get to vote" on this. But I will concede, she has a point. Do we implement this change now or wait until something really ugly DOES happen?

Default Re: No Bags/Purses to Games

Personally, I don't care although I can see the benefits as well as the concerns. The concern are valid because IMO because of those with extreme psychological issues have caused many inconveniences of freedoms we once took for granted. The one I miss the most is not being able se greet or see my loved ones off at the airport.

The upside in addition to the safety issue, should be quicker entry into the game. The only holdup for bag checks should be condensed to one or two lines for those who have special needs that require a thorough check. Also, to be real, how many bag checkers really thoroughly check the bags entering stadiums anyway? I was at a game in Dallas a few years ago (since moving to the new stadium) and the fans that sat next to me finished off a fifth of bourbon and a pint of vodka. Curious, I struck up a conversation and asked how were they able to get that much alcohol into the stadium? I was told easy, just hide the pint in a purse underneath feminine products, and the fifth in boots. With the new policy, the purse issue has been addressed, but the boots, seems that we're not there yet. So if the social drinker is clever, so would a terrorist.

I must say that I like how the Eagles are taking a customer friendly approach to the change.
