Seems the NFL will do full pat downs at all games this year. They must of talked to "Big Sis" at Homeland Security.
NFL wants pat downs from ankles up at all stadiums
The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan safety.
Previously, security guards only patted down fans from the waist up before gaining entry to NFL stadiums. Under the new "enhanced" pat-down procedures, the NFL wants all 32 clubs to search fans from ankles to the knees as well as the waist up.
The stricter security approach impacts the 16.6 million fans expected to attend live regular season NFL games this season.
The league wanted all clubs to implement the enhanced searches for Week One of the new season, says spokesman Brian McCarthy. The NFL hopes fans will be "patient" -- and arrive earlier to games to avoid lengthy delays.Because of this.
The NFL suffered damage to its family-friendly image when a South Carolina man was arrested for using an illegal taser on other fans at a New York Jets-Dallas Cowboys game Sunday night.So will Nascar do full pat downs on their fans coming into the tracks next year?
First, let's look at who NFL fans are.If you think there is no diffrence between the two you have a problem.
NFL stadiums are full of of left wing liberal nuts who would do anything to be on TV.Did you see President Obama at a NASCAR race? In Green Bay they are serving gluten free food for the fans. Whats next, veggie burgers? Who are NASCAR fans a little later.
Let's start with NFL games, no carry ins, $8.00 beers, $4.00 brats, no beer sales in the fourth quarter.
NASCAR, carry in coolers filled with any beverage of choice in plastic or cans, no glass.
NFL, no food brought in, NASCAR, sandwiches, turkey legs, snacks, food of choice able to be carried in.
NFL, you can wear radio head phones to listen to the game. NASCAR, scanners, Sprint Vision (able to play back TV feed when ever you want). MRN (radio feed) available on scanners. When will the NFL let fans listen in on the coaches? Do they know how much revenue they are missing out on? NFL coaches speak in secret code anyway, so who would even know what they are talking about. 30,000 fans listing to the coaches at $25 to $50 per game per person. Can we say extra money for the owners.
Security: There are nuts in all walks of life but NASCAR fans are one of a kind. Yes they may be called red neck, southern hicks, beer drinking, God loving, love of country hay seeds but they are not going to bring a taser into a race and go off on people in the crowd. If anyone did try to pull a taser on NASCAR fans, one, you wouldn't hear about it and two, the guy that would pull a taser would be in the hospital from tripping down the steps of row 54 of the grandstands. You probobly wouldn't even hear about it. Case closed.
Liberal don't like NASCAR so you can take a lot of them (trouble) out of the equation.
If NASCAR even considers full pat downs at the tracks they would see their revenue fall off drasticly and the drivers can kiss their high paid races a thing of the past. I know NASCAR only took Sunoco ethanol fuel just to get the ethanol whores money but if they start leaning towards, no carry ins, pat downs or scramble scanner frequencies they can kiss their sport good bye.
The past two years in dropped revenues and dropped ratings tell them they cannot change the sport that has made them great. They are fighting for every fan they can get right now and I don't think they want to lose more.
The NFL may be riding high now but in a couple of years they will be looking for ways to increase their lost revenue. Then what will they do? Strip searches?
