I love going to the NFL games. They are still an event that I look forward to early in the week. I have have 6 friends who can stand each other long enough to hang out for 6 or so hours. We used to have 8 but 2 abandoned us.
The Ravens played the Jets Sunday night, and we were warned of the extended pat downs at the gate. We got emails saying to come in early. We actually thought we were doing the safe thing and left to go in 1 hour before game time. We waited in line for 45 minutes to get into the game missing the most of the introductions.
This increased security does not make sense. Who do they think they are protecting us from? God forbid someone with a gun or a bomb would have attacked the 5000 people standing in line trying to get into the game. It was ridiculous.
I don't see how it makes me safe. I would gladly get shocked with a stun gun in the game, if it meant I didn't have to wait for that line. Thanks to the dumbass at the Jets game week one.
It was a great night other wise. The Raven's played well, almost exclusively on defense, and everyone had a great time.
Hopefully they can do something for the future.
