FORT WORTH (THE FAN SPORTS SHOW) - Once upon time you couldn’t attend a game at Cowboys AT&T Stadium without seeing a bombshell bagsnob rocking a Birkin.

Attending a Thursday night affair at MetLife Stadium to watch the Giants? Then you would see the entire Fall handbag line from Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine and more.

No more, my fancy NFL-loving friends! (of which there are many, BTW).

The league has instituted a new policy limiting the size of handbags and purses you can bring into ANY NFL stadium in effort make the games a safer experience. The Cowboys website offers a good infographic explaining what can be brought into AT&T Stadium. The league has an extensive FAQ page on its site, as well.

The policy is already drawing the ire of loyal fans. The complaints will be exponentially worse once the regular season begins.

I understand the need for increased security when it comes to larger bags. All someone needs to do is mention the 2013 Boston Marathon to silence critics. The bombing played a role in the institution of the policy.

I also believe less is more when attending sporting events. I consistently recommend carrying stylish crossbody bags to games, golf tournaments, tennis matches and the like.

But what happens when the reality of life gets in the way?

What if you need a few bottles for your baby, along with wipes, a diaper pad, diapers, nursing material, a bib and emergency change of clothes? Sorry, no diaper bag for you. Instead you have to cram all that into a clutch or a clear tote. Forgo the privacy, friends.

For a typical chick on game day, you’ll need money, ID, perhaps some keys, a smartphone, some lipstick/lipgloss, sunglasses, sunscreen. Those are minimums for me and my group of sports-loving female friends. Many more of my friends like a brush, hairspray, mints, gum, lotion, you get the idea.

I told NFL VP of corporate communications Brian McCarthy that the cynic in me believes this policy was created by a group of guys. He says the NFL consulted with focus groups of 350 women and insists the policy is not too restrictive.

“It’s one 12 by 6 by 12 bag (actually pretty good size) and one small purse per person, ” McCarthy explains. “You and I go to a game, I don’t bring anything but my keys, wallet, phone, hat, sunglasses. I don’t have to put any of those in a bag. So I can carry your stuff in a 12 by 6 by 12 bag plus a small purse. You can also carry in a 12 by 6 by 12 bag plus a small purse.”
