NFL Looks To Enhance Fan Security

MIAMI ( – The Miami Dolphins are struggling to sell tickets due to poor performance on the field and the rise of HD television and surround sound.

Now, the NFL wants to implement new measures for fans that do pony up the cash to go to the game, all in the name of security.

According to USA Today, the NFL has asked all 32 teams to search fans from the ankles to the knees and from the waist up in order to improve fan security.

The league made the call on the increased security before the kickoff of the 2011 season. But, some fans have already made it through the enhanced security, as evidenced by the fan using a stun gun on other fans at last weekend’s New York Jets vs. Dallas Cowboys game.

The NFL said its attendance won’t suffer from the new policy, but did encourage fans to arrive early for the game and to be patient while entering the stadium, according to USA Today.
