BREAKING NEWS - Massive changes to what you can take into the matches!

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this includes the "band" from bringing their musical instruments cases that are the size of a small child.

If so bring it on.

Never once take a bag to the football and never will so doesn't concern me in slightest.

 

What i have noticed is, from the picture, that little corner offers the best view in the house and you cant sit there!!! :tango:

How big is a clutch bag?

Suppose it depends on how big your hands are?

 Also, I don't see why banning backpacks makes you any safer. If people are going to do something they have plenty of opportunity outside the ground. 

Seriously?

Wouldn't they just target people coming out of the stadium?

So what do you do if you buy anything from the club shop before the game and they put it in a bag?

QUESTION OF THE DAY!

 

 

At sporting events on this side of the pond, your bag will be sealed with a little plastic tape like thing, indicating it's on the up and up.

 

And I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for these types of measures:  Going into a Maple Leafs game has a similar level of security as boarding a plane 10 years ago:  Empty pockets, metal detectors, pat down / wand.  Going to become the "new normal".

What if you bought a SWFC rucksack and tried to get in?!?!

 

Admitedly, this is a ridiculous scenario, as it would involve the club shop having merchandise  :duntmatter:

Yes. The point being, if someone wants to put something like a bomb in a back pack, they can do so and simply wonder down close to the ground and mingle with the crowds going to and/or leaving the match. They don't need to go near the turnstiles or get into the ground. The point I am making is that by banning rucksacks from the ground itself you are not necessarily making things any safer, it's an illusion and though we'd like to think it would make a difference, I doubt this ban would stop someone sick enough to try.  In the end, it isn't possible to remove the risk of someone doing something like this by banning rucksacks, or briefcases, or whatever, in a situation such as this where you have large crowds. . The reality is that there's not much you can achieve by banning things here and there, if someone wants to do something then it's pretty difficult to stop them, sad though it is. For what it's worth, I'd argue personally they'd be better off closing Penistone Road to traffic completely before and after the game if they want to improve safety more.
