Wonder how the league would respond if fans simply lined their clear bags.

It was your assumption that prompted my response. You failed to follow my point rather than me not following. Carrying fem products is something that nearly half the population does I'm not sure why anyone would care if anyone saw it. Take your valtrex before you leave the house so people don't see that in your purse, that I could understand

I understand the ban, and support it completely! Here's why. We're talking about approx FOUR hours out of a game day that a person will be without all the STUFF they think they can't live without. That's not a very long time, and where there's a will there's a way. I can shove everything I need into my pockets, or into a clear bag. IF a baby needs more than a couple diapers, or one bottle of milk during that four hours then maybe that baby needs to be under a Doc's care or home with a babysitter, not at a football game!! Pads and tampons are EASY to hide, and again, if you need to use more that 2 during a four hr time frame then you might want to consider seeing a GYN! For old timers like me, I will take my meds BEFORE I go to the game or put them in one of those cute little containers they have for medications these days. You don't have to take the entire, huge bottle of pills to a game!! I just think fans are making more out of this than they need to.. All ya gotta do is plan for the time you're inside the stadium, not the entire time you are on the premises. Safety should always come first! JMO!
It is fake safety.

Look at the pictures of the stuffed plastic bag. They still have to inspect it.

The bag doesn't have a shoulder strap. Which would be all sorts of handy if you are dealing with kids or at a tailgate and want to use two hands.

And shoulder straps on clutches are tiny. My pockets are typically too small for stuff. And the plastic bag has no shoulder straps. One way I figure out what purse to get is whether somebody could easily snatch it if I was in a public place.

This policy makes me feel LESS SAFE. I either have bare minimum stuff with me in a clutch with a small shoulder strap or all my valuables on display in a plastic bag that is so rickety it will likely fall apart in a couple of games.

And it isn't just 4 hours.

When we were at the Ravens game, I packed my purse full of cold weather gear. We left our hotel super early in the morning. Walked over a mile to a bar, tailgate then stadium. In some sketchy parts of Baltimore without any security. Then we walked back to the hotel after the game.

In the fourth quarter when the sun went down, I was able to grab my extra cold weather gear. And that game wasn't even the coldest the league sees. Or rainy.

If I'm tailgating without my own car about, I have to hold my stuff with one hand because no shoulder strap. And hold a blanket? (I packed mine tight in my purse last time).

This is a stupid policy that makes exactly no one safer and makes me feel less safe with greater inconveniences. Security theater.

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. (Almost every else in the world you can carry these items on planes and they have no problems).

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.

I agree with all you've said. But there are "official" NFL clear bags that have handles, strings and shoulder straps..........that will make your life so much easier. And you can use them to strangle visiting fans.........if you aren't already wearing a "waist weapon" (belt).

It's about safety? The line I was in yesterday didn't even have anyone waving the wand on us. Walked right on in like it was the old days before all the stupid "security" bullshit.

My problem with this is the profit the NFL is making on the items they are selling. Sell them at cost if their main goal is to simply provide better security, don't make a profit!!!

The NFL gets a lot of scope with the exception from the anti-trust laws that exist in the US. If the NFL continues to move broadcasting to paid channels, and continues to force more money out of us, then someone needs to repeal the act below..

God'ell is screwing the fans over again. (Shocker)

I'm not a big govt guy, but it's time for them to look at the anti trust for not only the NFL but other industries as well.

I carried my binoculars in my clear man purse to the game Saturday. It was totally gay, my clear man purse will now stay at home.
