Going To The Game Sunday? Allow Extra Time
The NFL has announced “enhanced security procedures” for fans entering stadiums. If you attend NFL games, you’re familiar with the pat-downs at stadium entrances before you’re allowed in. Fans will now be patted down from the ankles to the knees, and from the waist up.
A stun gun was sneaked past football stadium security at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, during a game Sunday between the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys on the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The NFL says the new procedures are not in response to that incident. “The enhanced security procedures are expected to increase fan safety, but will require some additional time”. – NFL Spokesman Brian McCarty
