  • "Security" at your team's rink

    Out of curiosity, what is the "security" like at your team's rink?

    Does arena staff search purses, camera bags and large pockets?

    Is your arena on your campus?

    If not, is the arena a multi-tenant arena (i.e. someone other than just your college/university uses it)?

    Or does the arena do nothing and simply take patrons' tickets?

    I've wondered how others compare to Notre Dame...

    "Why, as a matter of fact, I suggested starting a hockey program to Father Callahan, our president. He was downright interested until we came to the use of sticks, and then he threw up his hands. He said, 'No, that game is not for our University. Notre Dame will never endorse any game that puts a club in the hands of an Irishman.' " -- Knute Rockne: All American

    Security at Matthews is getting worse and worse. No bag search but there didn't used to be security of any kind, just a few roaming officers...there are orange jackets everywhere now, someone must have complained cause its a bit overkill.

    The worst is still at Agganis though, they are BRUTAL!

      At Michigan Tech, they allow outside drinks and food (I bring whole pizzas in all the time), cowbells, huge cameras and bags, flags and poles, kegs, tire irons, machetes, shotguns, bazookas, etc.

        At Mariucci, they had people open up their purses and such when I was there a couple weeks ago, but I don't think they looked very thoroughly. They have ushers/security at the top of most aisles (single-tier arena, basically), but all I've seen them do is prevent people from getting to their seats during actual play.

          Pretty much. If the mother of an opposing player has sand in her vag and doesn't like a particular sign in the student section which teases her son and "ruins her whole trip", apparently the rink staff will send someone to ask that the sign be taken down. *cough*Karen Davis*cough*

          A couple of times they have asked opposing fans to leave the student section, unaware that they are friends of the Misfits (or more specifically, MEg).

            I'll start for Bemidji State and the John Glas Fieldhouse in its final year hosting the Beavers. The BREC will be a whole new ballgame, I'm sure.

            It's a very casual atmosphere.

            The rink is on campus, but it is used by the local high school team as well. Security is very laid back at HS games too.

            There are ticket-takers and ushers as well as "official" BSU security personel, but like I said, no searches and unless there are issues, I've never noticed their presance.

            The Glas is a unique setting. There is a lobby/concession/rest room area where no ticket is required for entrance. The ticket-takers are actually set-up at the base of a set of stairs that lead directly to the top of the bleachers. Once you are "in" the rink, you get your hand stamped, and are free to return to the lobby/concession/rest room area and come and go as you please. That makes the set of stairs a busy place (2000 fans coming and going all in one space for pre/post game and internission!)... I can imagine that is a huge security issue right there.

              Nil.

              Everything is done by volunteers from fraternities and ROTC. Entrances are basically scan ticket and in. The ushers pretty much just stand there and keep people from going down to their seat while the puck is in play.

              Signs, noisemakers, musical instruments, lynched mascots, etc. are pretty much good to go, especially if you're in Tech clothing. You could theoretically bring anything you wanted into the arena. Pep Band stripes conceal a flask and bottle of Hershey's syrup for peppermint patty shots quite well (not that I would EVER do such a thing )

                I would think that's rare. The three times I've been there, no opposing fans were asked to leave the Misfits' section.

                And SCSU's arena allows a lot, also, as far as noisemakers and such.

                  If you go in the student entrance, they pat you down.

                    I heard that they kicked Dirty out once.

                    Yes, yes they do.

                        Security at Alfond Arena is none, they take your ticket and thats it.

                              tDECC is all over the map. We brought in 15 bags of tshirts to sell and the first person to buy one was the cop working the door. Biddco carries a blowup doll around the rink during the lap when tUMD scores (which has been limited to 5 people at a time) but they took away my "Every time a cowbell rings God kills a Husky" sign because it was offensive.

                              tDECC does not like opposing fans to bring cowbells.
