NFL to limit bags brought into stadiums

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -

The NFL is limiting the size and kind of bags fans bring into stadiums, beginning with preseason games. The restrictions are designed to enhance security and speed stadium entry.

With the exception of necessary medical items, only clear plastic, vinyl or thick plastic handbags no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches will be allowed.

One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags also will be OK, as will small bags about the size of someone's hand, with or without a handle or strap, that are in a clear plastic bag.

Banned items will include purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinchbags, seat cushions, luggage, computer bags and camera bags.

It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
