Some Mom's not happy with NFL's new bag policy

To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite fan entry into stadiums, NFL teams have implemented an NFL policy this year that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums.

The league has instituted a new policy on what type of bags fans can bring into stadiums on game day, limiting them to “small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.”

The size of a hand? That’s cool if you’re Shaquille O’Neal, but for most people that isn’t very big.

The NFL has detailed what will and won’t be allowed. Here’s what’s allowed:

   

  • 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/allclear), 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.

And here’s what’s not allowed:

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.

Needless to say, many women in particular aren’t happy with the new restrictions.
