Bills fans to be screened Sunday
December 2, 2011 - April Diodato
I am going to Sunday's Bills game vs. the Tennessee Titans, and received this information via the Buffalo Bills email "Gameday Advisory":
"Metal Detector Screening to Begin this Weekend
In conjunction with NFL security best practices and to continue to improve the fan experience, the Buffalo Bills will begin implementing handheld metal detector screening in place of the limited pat-down procedure at select gate entry points beginning this weekend. The process will prove less strenuous for security screeners, less intrusive for fans, and will improve crowd management by increasing patron flow rate and ultimately eliminating gender-specific queue lines. More importantly, properly utilized handheld metal detectors will close the security gap in our current screening process and ensure a safe game day environment for all Bills fans."
This is supposed to be the land of the free, isn't it? (Have you seen this article?).
Also, be forewarned that "Abusive or foul language, fighting, or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated and will result in immediate ejection without refund." So don't get TOO excited, Bills fans -- you wouldn't want to get kicked out for having excessive amounts of fun.
