The National Football League wants to make another change in the rules this season. The league wants every fan entering an NFL stadium patted down from the ankles to the knees and from the waist up.  the move is being made to increase fan safety and security. In a statement, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy says “the enhanced security procedures” are expected to increase fan safety but “will require some additional time.” He’s encouraging the more than 16-million football fans who’ll be affected to allow some extra time for getting into stadiums.

The enhanced security might have prevented an embarrassing incident this past Sunday. A South Carolina man used a taser on fans attending the New York Jets versus Dallas Cowboys game. He was arrested.
