The NFL is trying to be safe. They are alienating the very people they want to start coming to the games, Women. Women's apparel has had a sharp rise in sales. More and more women are going to games and becoming part of the game.

The NFL is trying to be safe, I know I repeated that, but I'm trying to show you what the stance of the NFL is. They keep referring to that statement.Last time we went to a Football game, Sam was in diapers, I had to run to the other side of the building so someone could check my bag. Just so they could check my 3 diapers and wipes I had with me for the change.

Here is what will be allowed at football games starting this fall:

  • 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 are available through club merchandise outlets or at, 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 bag options.
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

I understand that women could hide something in their purse. I think most women would go without their purse for a couple of hours to watch a football game.

I don't think women or men could go without a diaper bag if you have a child that small. So now they have made the family mad. This is the other part I don't understand, you won't let families bring in diaper bags and then you out price the average family so they can't afford tickets.

Good Luck NFL!!!
