    This is just weird. Why no bags? I go to the other football games all the time and we bring in meals and everything. And we sit with the Ultras so...

    I believe one reason is so that you can not fit a gun or knife in it. There are now 3D printed guns that can very much kill but do not show up on a mettle detector.

    Why can't it be up to the individual stadium? Out here we can bring food to a Dodgers. They search through your stuff, make you throw some things away if necessary, and then you go in. It doesn't take a whole lot of time to look.

    We also bring in stuff to the coliseum when we go to USC games. They search our bags, but lines getting in are always short and very efficient.

    Do they pat you down where you are? I could easily hide stuff that could do damage but not be detected in my shoes, pant legs, or anywhere else. The stabbing death in San Francisco happened at a bar; the beating in LA didn't involve a gun or knife.

    I couldn't find any statistics on knife/gun injuries at sporting events. If it's really about safety, they should stop selling alcohol.

    Well, if anything it does help cut down on the ways you can bring things you shouldn't be bringing into the stadium. Just because they can't prevent every way....doesn't mean it isn't helpful in increasing safety. And maybe there are other reasons too. I think it defintiely helps speed things up if they don't have to worry about searching through bags.

    I'm trying to remember if they did any pat downs or anything upon our entrance into the stadium. I don't think they did...but my erm...memory is a little fuzzy.
