Goal of New Security System is to get Jets Fans to Seats in 10 Minutes

Have you been to a Jets game at Metlife stadium since it opened?  If you are like me, you probably tried to get every minute you can out of your tailgate before heading to your seats.  With no VIP entrance for me, it usually meant a line of 20-30 people before you get patted and wanded down.

All that is going to change starting this year as Metlife has already installed a new security metal detector system.

The detectors, called magnetometers (or mags), are similar to those used by TSA officials at airports, except that fans don’t need to remove their shoes or belts.

Pat downs should be the thing of the past with the new system.

The idea is to get as many people as they can to their seats in about ten minutes.  Of course that also depends on the cooperation of the fan.   As long as fans are not carrying anything metallic, or hiding any items, entry through the mags should be a snap. Of course, people coming from tailgating in the parking lot can forget they stuck a utensil, a cork screw, or something to that affect in their pocket.

In my case, I had to throw away some nice cigar lighters because there was no way I was hiking back to L7.  Yes, I’ve done it more than once.

The investment at MetLife was about $500,000.00.  Metlife plans to go full live with this new technology way before the Jets have there first game, but if all goes to plan, maybe we can hang out at the tailgate even longer.
