As a seat ticket holder for many years i was stunned today to find out that only a 12"×12" clear plastic bag will be allowed in to the stadium. How does the elks hope to have family's come to a game when a diaper bag is not allowed in? I can't fit all the stuff in the diaper bag into a 12x12 bag.
The trip to and from the game will be a serious event even better than the game itself. I will have to keep track of 4 freezer bags as the elks recommend two kids under 6 and a wife. I count 4 responsible hands and six things to hold on to. How ever am going to take the family to the games as straps and buckets are not allowed either.
I can' t wait until the late season games when it is 20 below zero and a wind is blowing through commonwealth stadium. I am bundled up in enough winter gear to hide a 40punder and a 2l of coke. I would love to have a warm blanket to keep me warm but wait can't put that in 12"×12" bag. So i guess i will have to drink to to stay warm. Safety can't be the reason for the policy as winter clothing has not been banded yet. Wait that is for next season.
It looks like the better choice for a father wanting to take his family to a gate driven League is to stay home and watch it on tv.
You really have to wonder how the elks are trying to bring a new generation to the stadium when they put in place policies that make it nearly impossible for a family to get to and be comfortable at a game.
