    Re: Leave you SEAT CUSHIONS in the car....



    Doesn't have anything to do with security. They are just trying to limit the amount of food and alcohol that fans smuggle in as well as speed up the traffic at the gates.

    It has something to do with security. It also has something to do with liability and public relations perceptions.

    That, too. Just an extra added benefit of additional revenue and positive fan experience - as in a shorter wait to get into the stadia around the league.

    I read the new policy on the NFL site last night. The Ravens site has not been updated as the policy was updated a few days ago.
    No to seat cushions.
    You can bring in blankets carried over your shoulder.
    It looks like they will be selling see thru nFL totes.

    Special needs, eh? Which gate is the hip flask gate? Seriously, they can't NOT do stuff like this after the Boston Bombing. I don't smoke [tobacco], but making smokers leave the 500s and go to some Marlboro Corral at Field Level is gonna freak more people out than a seat cushion ordinance/checkpoint.

    LOL - I already have a pair. Thick, wool jobbers that must have been Swedish Ski Troop pants or something - "Shtadium Pantzen," if you will. The last thing I ever bought from Sunny's Surplus. Great for January Football (literally saved my ass @ the Wild Card Beatdown in NE and a year later @ KC). Functionally waterproof, nearly impervious to pat-downs or metal detectors, pockets everywhere, belted pants leg cuffs, custom velcro fly, fabric almost 1/2 inch thick that actually gives a little cushion for the keister. One of the best 20 bucks I ever spent.

    Now why did I never think of that!? Thanks for the tip.

    Heard it. Obv, he's there as a proponent for the NFL's policy, but otherwise I thought it was pretty reasonable.

    What part did you think was BS?

    75% of it.

    First of all the lines are only long for those that wait till less than 20 mins before kickoff. It will not speed the process up whatsoever when it is below 50 degrees. Thick jackets etc etc.

    This is more of a SALES based then SECURITY. Go look at the gates at OPCY and see what is being done there.

    As far as the search going into the stadium. Well that is an absolute joke also. I have seen people with cans of beer ( more than 5 ) that have gotten thru security. Shit if you can get a can of beer in. Fk they could just about get anything in.

    This push about security in the country is becoming a JOKE. It is more about pushing objectives or incentives.

    Ok. But what did HE say that you found a joke.

    I head it as well and I didn't think it was all that out of bounds.
