Is It Fair for the NFL to Ban Purses at Games? — Sports Survey of the Day
The NFL's new purse policy has many female fans angry. Is it fair to ban handbags from stadiums?
News broke over the weekend that the NFL had enacted a new policy for the start of the 2013 season. From now on, standard-size purses will not be allowed inside stadiums. As you can imagine, this isn't too popular with female fans.
The NFL says that it's a safety issue, and despite the complaints this new policy is a win-win that will keep fans in the stands safer. All purses are not banned; a small clutch is still permitted. The NFL also says you can bring things into the stadium in a clear Ziploc bag.
Always thinking on their feet, the NFL also has officially licensed clear bags that you can buy.
