    Pat-downs reinstated at Tampa stadium
    Associated Press
    Posted: 17 hours ago



    MIAMI (AP) - The Tampa Sports Authority called pat-down searches at Tampa Bay Buccaneers football games an essential layer of security in an age of terrorism and urged a federal appeals court Tuesday to reinstate them.

    Tampa is the only NFL city where the pat-downs have been successfully challenged, although lawsuits have also been brought in Chicago, Seattle and San Francisco, according to attorneys in the Florida case.
    Pat-downs are legal because a game ticket is a legal contract between the authority and the fan, one that can be revoked for virtually any reason, said Rick Zabak, an attorney for the sports authority, a governmental board that owns and operates Raymond James Stadium.

    "NFL games are attractive terrorist targets," said Jonathan Cohn, a deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department's civil division. "There's no constitutional right to watch a football game live."

    Makes sense to me. I don't see how any one can argue with this since it is a private company and you have a choice not to attend.

    Can't see how anyone could object to pat-downs before going into a stadium - if you have nothing to hide then what's the problem?
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    The name put-downs completely threw me off, i thought they were banning put-downs or name calling at the stadium or something....
