    They do it at the dome to. I don't really give a $hit. It doesn't bother me and doesn't really seem to bother anyone else. Why not do it? What if some physco tries to bring a gun or bomb in there.

    Jeez have some people got nothing better to do than bitch and whine about minor things? If you've got nothing to hide then whats the problem without invoking an amendment to get it stopped.
    Personally my view is that if the police, or legitimate stadium security staff, feel that a quick pat down is needed to ensure that the area is safe for fans then I don't have a problem with that.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    My sentiments exactly.

    There's protecting civil liberties, and there's whining for the sake of it.

    This is a textbook example of the latter.
