    They should have always started pat downs from the ankles in any case. There are actually people bothered by this? It's a non-story, the way I see it.

    Some of us just LOVE having those rough, burly hands moving up and down our trembling bods, big fella! ;)

    Typical over-reaction by The Man. We were joking about this at the job the other day...joking about it.
    It'll make me feel safer, though. I can't tell youz how many times I worried myself sober that someone was trying to sneak a tazer into Gilette.

    How about a "Free Taser Give-A-Way Day" at Gillette when the Jets come to town. See a Jet Fan - Zap the Bas*ard.

    All in good fun of course. Anybody who lights up Ryan gets bonus points.

    You're on to something, an Officially Licensed NFL taser with Pats logo and an extra Jet fan setting for a few dollars more.

    As a general rule of thumb, I avoid patdowns unless absolutely unavoidable. Mostly on principle, so I probably won't be going to any football games anytime soon.

    When you have 70,000 people going to the same place at the same time, it's physically impossible to stop them from bringing weapons or anything else into a stadium. It would take a ridiculous amount of time to actually search them. The winter games are even worse. With all the extra clothes people have on, the pat-downs are even less effective. It would be easy to sneak a rocket launcher in there!

    I do not think a reasonable pat down is a bad thing at all.

    It may help deter someone with bad intentions.

    It may lead to security actually finding that person with bad intentions.

    Would this be 100% were that person trying to enter with the rocket launcher, probably not - but it sure is better than nothing.

    The moron with the taser was at the Cowboys-Green Beans game. I blame Wrecks Ryan for this. He warns against visitors wearing opposing teams' colors so a Cowboys fan brings a taser to protect himself. The Jets fan probably deserved getting tasered but now we all have to pay for it. Idiots.

    I'll be honest: I don't know anything about Pat Downs, although the "enhanced" part sounds pretty badass. Can he rush the passer?

    Either would make an excellent stocking stuffer for Christmas in Oakland.

    Nope. A vast, global, Bilderberg-fronted group of conspirators has been hard at work suppressing Jones' revolutionary anti-NFL message.

    Re: OT: "Boycott The NFL" Alex Jones

    Alex Jones is a member of the 'alternative media' - ie his output isn't directly subsided by large corporations like so much of the 'mass media'.

    People should be wary of the erosion of civil liberties under the guise of protection against phantom terrorists.

    Those TSA full body searches are a gross invasion of the basic rights of a soveregn citizen of the United States (or any other country for that matter).

    However, calling for a boycott of a sport we only just regained from the clutches of lawyers, stooges and blowhards is likely do go down about aswell as a fart in a lift.

    If Alex Jones told me the sky was Blue, Id go out and check. Nobody should ever take anything he says seriously.

    Everything is a conspiracy, the government is recording every phone call you make, every disaster is caused by the CIA, and anyone who disagrees with this worldview has been brainwashed. That's who Alex Jones is.

    Looking past the fact that he said people should boycott the NFL......the guy is an idiot.
