The NFL has officially recommended that every fan be subjected to the same invasion of privacy known as the “enhanced pat-down,” better characterized as a grope-down, utilized by the TSA around the nation, both in and outside airports.
Why is the NFL pushing such a dehumanizing, time consuming, inefficient and absolutely useless policy? Well, the NFL and USA Today would tell you it is because someone illegally used a taser in a fight at a football game.
They claim that these enhanced pat-downs will only extend from the knees to the ankles, but can we really trust this? The NFL can do just about anything and everything they want, since you not only agree to be there but pay to be there.
