Default NFL rules re bags in stadiums

Saw this today, and wonder if it will apply to the Wembley games:

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/ey...purses-at-home

Obviously, read the full article for your selves, but the crux of it is in this quote:

"Here's a list of items from the NFL that you will not be allowed to bring into stadiums: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Just to be clear: You can still bring a camera, binoculars or a tablet into the stadium, you just can't bring any of those items in a non-clear bag. "

Any merchandise bought will now be placed in clear see through bags as opposed to the blue Visa bags from last year.

What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted?

Fans carrying bags that do not meet the criteria will be turned away from the stadium well before they reach the gates.
How far away from the stadium will the perimeter be set up to stop people with bags?

Is it even possible to enforce this, somebody not going to the game who happens to be carrying a bag won't be allowed within a certain distance of Wembley

At the gates or turnstiles of the stadium to get in is what they are saying.

I have a number of questions about this:

Does it apply to the Wembley game?
Are those that purchased tickets now going to be notified of a change in Policy?
If not, can you guarantee that every person attending the game will be aware of the rules prior to arrival at the stadium?
Are those that purchased tickets now going to be offered refunds as a result?
What about those carrying nappy/baby changing/sanitary products - do they have to "advertise" those products in a clear plastic bag?

Now, if it is the case that they want to enhance the fan experience, they could have separate queues - "express" for those that don't have bags, and other queues for those that are prepared to wait on bag checks.

However, I suspect there are a couple of money-spinning reasons behind this:
a) Save money on staffing - so they don't have to employ people for bag checks.
b) Increase in-stadium spending.

Rules are rules i guess. It sucks but what can we do ? I think they should go one further and actually shoot anyone who has a "fanny pack". Those are the worst things ever, yeah the Americans love them (for some reason) but still. Horrid things.

Agreed about fanny packs

But for us UK fans that want to buy jerseys or memorabilia at the game, where are you ment to put it. I can't carry a bag around all day.
They need to remember we can't go down to your local shop and buy nfl stuff.
So if they ban backpacks il be slightly annoyed
