Some folks are up in arms over the NFL's new "carry-in" policy that will limit the size and number of bags one can bring into the stadium.
Here's a link to the story from Sports Illustrated
Personally, if this new policy prevents people from bringing small children to a game I say, GOOD.
Too many folks bring too many kids who are too young to be at a sporting event. They have no attention span and are a distraction not only for their parents but for all those around them.
And don't give me any crap about I don't like kids because it's not true. While I don't have any kids I've been out with my family and their kids in many situations and I'm very tolerant of the little ones.
However, especially with the price everyone pays to get into a major sporting event, it's nonsense to have young kids there. Not only do they have literally no idea what's going on, they're going to be exposed to the underbelly of society, that is average sports fans.
They're usually partly or completely drunk and vulgar.
It's no place for kids.
Moving to the high school ranks....OHSAA has released the accounting for the winter sports state tournaments (gymnastics not included):
Boys Basketball: Attendance: 115,343 (up 2,513 from '12); profit of $871,858
Girls Basketball: Attendance: 35,953 (up 2,537 from '12); profit of $15,204
Wrestling: Attendance: 49,256 (down 1,187 from '12); profit of $191,143
Bowling: Attendance: 1,607; profit $99
Team Wrestling: Attendance: 1,750; loss of $96,166
Ice Hockey: Attendance: 4.466; loss of $4,798
Swimming & Diving: Attendance: 8,354; loss of $8,979
Total profit: $968,361.
That's how the OHSAA can avoid charging schools for membership and tournaments entries. 80% of the Association's operting budget comes from ticket sales at Regional and State Tournaments.
Also, the new divisional assignments for high school football have been released. You can find your school here: OHSAA
