Jaguars Fans Like Bringing Knives To EverBank Field

The Jacksonville Jaguars had 62,481 people attend the final game of the 2011 NFL season against the Indianapolis Colts on Jan. 1. According to SMG, the company that services EverBank Field on game day, there were 35 people who had knives confiscated at the game.

Given the attendance, that means that one in every 1,784 people were armed with a knife entering the stadium. Not only that, but EverBank Field exceeded the league average for metal detector use during the regular season in 2011. SMG did receive an award in 2011 however, dealing with all of these knives.

The award is granted for innovative and exemplary safety measures for events during a year. So, while there were knives brought to the game, SMG apparently did an amazing job at keeping fans safe and secure.
