Security Changes At NFL Stadiums, Including Metrodome

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fans who attended the Minnesota Viking game may have noticed some amped up security. According to the National Football League, fans should get used to it.

The NFL announced last week that there will be more pat downs at all 31 league stadiums, including the H.H.H. Metrodome.

A spokesperson said the new security blitz includes pat downs from the ankles to the knees and from the waist up.

This announcement came just days after an incident involving a stun gun. On the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a Cowboys fan was charged with attacking three Jets fans with a stun gun at a New Jersey stadium.

NFL officials say the enhanced security was implemented before the start of the season — not as a result of last weekend’s incident.

    Yup, I won’t be going to anymore games either. Bin Laden won, he’s changed us into Nazi germany

    OMG a stun gun what horror, give me a break. The terrorists have won. Next they will mace, cuff a 8 year old kid for a squirt gun. We live in such a pansy society.

    I wouldn’t mind frisking the cutie in the white shorts.

      ME TOO! I want to run her thru a “nude-o-scope”; full body patdown (she might have an underwear bomb – I will check that VERY closely).

    The new system needs to be much improved. We waited in line for probably a half hour. There should be two lines for women for every one line of men – since women have to be frisked and their purses checked, the lines did not move at all! Plus, I had a phone in my pocket that could have easily been a stun gun – they didn’t even find it!

    Lol, wonder where the woman in the picture up there would have hidden a weapon? Her clothes don’t leave much to the imagination.
