Falcons fans reluctantly conform to new bag policy

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta Falcons fans are getting the message about the NFL's new bag policy.

The policy encourages people to bring small, clear bags, and bans large purses, backpacks and diaper bags.

Before Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams, fans could be seen with clear bags, small clutches or wristlets.

Some parking attendants provided free plastic food storage bags for fans that weren't aware of the new bag policy.

During the team's preseason game last month, hundreds of angry fans lined up for hours, after being told by security their bags were too big to take into the Georgia Dome, because of the new policy.

The new bag policy is designed to help increase safety inside the dome and is expected to eventually decrease the amount of time fans spend going through the security check points.
