Cowboys Fans, Say Hello to Bag Restrictions

Restrictions will be in effect for both home preseason games



    A new NFL policy limiting the types and sizes of bags fans can bring into stadiums will be in effect for both of the Dallas Cowboys' home preseason games.

    The league encourages fans not to bring bags to games. Those allowed include clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches. One-gallon clear resealable bags also are allowed, along with strapless purses and bags about the size of a hand.

    Among the banned items are coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, computer bags and camera bags.

    Alex Bocanegra, who goes to several games per season, said he doesn't think the new restrictions will be a problem.

    "What do you need to take inside inside of a bag?" he said.

    But fan Monica Boler said the rules could make it tough for parents attending with their children.

    "People are going to complain big time," she said.

    "If that's what I can't bring, I won't bring it," Camille Murray said.

    The Cowboys play the Cincinnati Bengals in their Aug. 24 home preseason opener, followed Aug. 29 by the Houston Texans. They open the regular season Sept. 8 by hosting the New York Giants.
