The Yellow-jacket security staff, at the Carolina Panthers’ home football games inside Bank of America Stadium down in Charlotte, is coming under heavy criticism and many of the fans can’t get to their seats in time to see the game…..Many are missing the entire first quarter and even though they have been told to get to their seats sooner, the fans feel there is plenty of time to get through the lines, but that the Yellow-jacket security staff that many refer to as the ‘Show Pros’, the fans feel the Yellow-jackets are not doing their job and that they could be doing a much better job of moving the Panthers’ fans through the long lines and that the Yellow-jackets could get the fans into the stadium in time to see all of the game, if the Yellow-jackets would only get to work and do their jobs…..
They had all kinds of problems, at the recent Carolina Panthers-Seattle Seahawks game that kicked off at 4:05pm, at the Bank of America Staduim and here is part of what one fan was telling Scott Fowler, of the Charlotte Observer, about how the situation at the Panthers-Seahawks game was handled by the Yellow-jackets….
“The security to get in the stadium is horrible,” wrote Keith, who did not want his last name published. “It took my wife and I 30 minutes to get through the North Gate at 3:35 p.m. We missed the opening kickoff. This is why the crowd is so late arriving. The staff working the gate acted if they were getting paid by the hour. No sense of urgency at all and in fact I saw three or four yellow-jacket folks standing around talking. I can tell you that I will not go through that again.”
