Will the serfs accept this humiliation so as not to miss their live-action American Gladiator circus battles? They're saying that fans will need to arrive a little earlier at the gates. How about four hours earlier? Might it boost stadium brew and bread sales? Or, will it 'Sack the Pack'

GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers fans should arrive early and expect some delays for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos as the team implements heightened security measures for the games at Lambeau Field this season.
The National Football League is pushing for enhanced security, and starting with Sunday's game at Lambeau, all fans will be subject to a hand-held, metal-detecting wand test before being admitted.
The procedure would be similar to wand inspections at the airport, but this process would be less invasive than the full-body exam, said Doug Collins, Packers director of security.
"We think it's a more thorough process, without having the hands-on in particular. We understand there has been some negativity out there from what the (Transportation Security Administration) has done. … This just eliminates that process," Collins said. "Pretty much the whole body will be scanned with the hand wand."
The Packers previously performed upper torso pat-downs at the security gates.
The Packers say the new process will likely result in some delays in getting into the stadium.
"Be prepared for something different. It may take a few seconds longer, so if (fans) arrive a little earlier at the gates that would be helpful," Collins said. "I don't anticipate there being any lines that are so long that people miss the game or anything like that. … But every officer in every line will have those wands."
Green Bay police Lt. Kevin Warych said bags will still be subject to traditional searches and, to speed up the process, he advised fans to bring only what's necessary."Only bring the bare essentials," Warych said. "The less you bring, the faster it is for people to move through the line."
