New NFL Bag Policy: Can’t Bring That Coach Purse To The Game Girlfriend

Featured, News — June 14, 2013 at 5:13 pm by

The NFL announced a change to its bag policy Thursday and beginning with the 2013 season, only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags will be permitted inside NFL stadiums. Under the new policy, fans will be allowed to bring one bag into stadiums and that bag must be clear and not exceed 12 inches by six inches by 12 inches.  Chanel, Prada and Gucci might not be on board with the new policy, which will prohibit purses from NFL stadiums. Small clutch bags are still permitted, as long they’re no bigger than “the size of a hand.”  “Our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment,” NFL vice president and chief security officer Jeffrey Miller said in a statement. “Public safety is our top priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective. We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans’ cooperation.”  [CBS Sports]

A few women are pissed about this saying the NFL doesn’t care about their female fans and blah, blah, blah.  The Ravens have a ton of female fans, which I think is great, and I would bet most would be okay with this policy, especially after the Boston bombings brought the all too real threat of terrorism back into the forefront of our minds.  To those that don’t like it, don’t blame the NFL, blame the radical Muslim lunatics who decided some time ago that the United States and its population was some evil world entity.  I’m all for this, especially since every time I go into a public venue I’m thinking about escape routes and how to save my own fat ass in case somebody decides to yell “Allahu Akbar” with a bomb strapped to their chest.  And now-a-days forget religious zealots, regular old nut jobs get crazy and shoot up malls, movie theaters, and schools. Don’t you think that somewhere somebody’s plotting to do the same to a stadium?  Hell, even movie directors think stadiums are easy terrorist targets, haven’t you seen Batman?  All you need at a game is an ID and a stack of cash or a credit card.  That Ravens purple makes you look gorgeous anyway babes, you don’t need the makeup and all that other shit.  It’s safety first and I’m all for it.

"Sorry lady, you can't bring that in here no more."

“Sorry lady, you can’t bring that in here no more.”

  1. What ever they have gone to far. A clutch bag the size of your hand is not enough for some people who may have a need for some femine products etc that they really don’t want to parade around in a clear bag/. Big back packs haven;t been allowed for years. I they wand us when we go in now with a metal detector. Dont’ think a pressure cooker is gona make it in the game in my small purse. This is a knee jerk reaction and is over the top.

  2. The sad thing is, the best time to blow some thing up, is when everyone heads in at the same time and we are all stuck in the security line.
