I Guess Paper Bags Are Allowed in Carolina

I think by now we've all heard plenty of tales of confiscated paper bags from the Bucs-Skins game at FedEx last week, but here's one more, from Reader Ben:

Somehow I snuck a big brown bag, concealed in my right hand, past security when I entered the stadium. I wore the bag for much of the first half and continued wearing it to my favorite commiseration station at the section 110 endzone bar. There I felt a strong hand grasp my shoulder and before I could utter some profanity, a security guard told me that I needed to leave the stadium because "paper bags are prohibited". Fortunately I was able to negotiate staying in the stadium and I was even allowed to keep my "prohibited" paper bag so long as it wasn't on my head.

Still, as a social experiment, he figured he'd try to wear his bag this week in Carolina, just to see. The Panthers' stadium policies say that "large bags of any description" are prohibited, but I guess they've neglected to invest in a deep crop of young and talented security guards down there, because...well, the picture speaks for itself, no?

Also, via @selltheteamdan, comes this photo of a Redskins fan.

Really, no paper bags on heads at the stadium? The terrorists/Danny have won.

If Snyder gets these pictures removed, we really need to fear his power. He had a used Neutrogena-thin reason to get the pictures removed the first time. If he gets them removed this time I fear that Snyder might belong to the Skulls.

I don't think paper bags are good for the environment.
