I got to the gates at 1220 and I missed player introductions and kickoff for the first time ever. I was not happy at all. I was angry actually. What is the deal? Just be forewarned enter the stadium much earlier than usual if want to be in your seat for kickoff.

1st time I've ever had to take my wallet out of my pocket. I think that's going a bit too far !

No one ever uses South Gate, It's the gate off morehead. Use that one next time of or a quicker line make sure you have your pockets cleared before you get to the screeners. Security stuff sucks but get over it, blame the jerk that brought the taser into a jets game last year.

The security is dictated by the NFL. They have more stringent guidelines this year so be warned and get there earlier.

They are using metal detector wands now instead of the pat down. Takes a little more time. Hopefully they will get better at it as the season progresses.

Took us 40 minutes to get in from the Graham Street side. I missed the Saints and Panthers first drives.

Panthers.com advised arriving early for the Saints game due to security checkpoints.

These screening have become ridiculous. What next a body scan so I can get into MacDonalds.

Understood.....but most sane people would consider being in line 45 minutes before kickoff to be sufficient.

It wasn't.

Took me a while to get in as well, and I had to go through the girlfriend's purse line. Didn't take as long as you guys are making it out to be, though.

I didn't think about it at the time, but yes, there was more detailed security than I have seen before...

Everything out of pockets, everyone wanded down... probably why the lines were longer.

Took over 30 minutes on the South Gate. I was irritated because the median age of the people doing the bag checks is 65 and move about as slow as a snail.
