  1. No laptops is a bummer. I sometimes have mine with me at evening games as I travel directly from the city

  2. More “can’t do this, can’t do that”.
    So much for our freedoms!!!
    The obvious are so obvious.
    The rest are bull ****!!!

  3. The majority of these are stadiums wide across the board.I am guessing the laptop is for security purposes in case some nutcase wants to have a laptop looking bomb.Who knows.Its a sad world we live in!
    Some are petty but others sensible & only assholes would want to not abide by those ones anyway!

  4. “Signs or items with corporate or inappropriate branding”

    And there, in one succinct phrase, you have the death knell of West Ham Utd FC and the birth of West Ham London PLC.

    **** RIGHT OFF.

  5. So, no hip flask on winter nights ! But you can buy alchahol on site ??
