Lines entering stadium

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

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

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.

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.

Same here! I got to the gate around the same time and that is earlier than I usually get there. I had done that because I knew the line would be extra long due to the new security, but I guess we all needed to get there even earlier :wacko: You would think hiring more screeners would be a good idea but I guess they didnt think of that OR maybe it is all on purpose so we all go in the stadium even earlier so we do less drinking and eating outside and have to buy more of their $8 beers.

at 12 o clock I walked right in. put all my stuff in my hat and had it ready for inspection. the only hold up was that the zippers on my shorts set off the wand. I didn't miss a thing, and even saw some of warm ups.

Got through pretty quick at the South Gate around 12:15..short enough I didn't even keep track of time; only a few minutes <5

Quick trick: go through the bag check line without a bag

The lines prevent the crowd for the team intros but everything seemed to fill in once the game got under way. Stadium needs to improve that shizniz

North gate at Noon line of 3 people in front of me. Couple that sits next to us say they got to the gate around 12:20 they made it to their seats after kickoff about 15 minutes into game.

People need to arrive earlier. Don't blame the stadium. That's one thing that sucks about watching a Panthers game on TV, there's only 40-50% of the crowd seated at kickoff. Borderline embarassing compared to other teams...and it's not BoA's fault as it has been like that for years.
