It's been the rule for 2 seasons now.  It's posted on their website.  They even handed out bags at the home opener the last 2 years because of it.  They really should post it right outside the arena somewhere though.  They were pretty lax about it last year, but I saw several women this year get sent back to their car.


Glad you had a good time!  

I didn't know that at all! I should have checked a while ago. Do you know why they have those rules? 


Although it was unfortunate that your friends couldn't get in because of her purse, they should have a baggage check or something imo. perhaps, you should give us pointers on what to do, places to visit, etc if it's their first time to the D. I know I'd appreciate that ;)

 I agree on the baggage check. Just doesn't make sense. I was just over the college town kinda. I was in Greektown ( lots of good places to eat there, there is this pizza place that is really good and lots of good bars in midtown also) There is this greekplace that is really good also. And Kony's, I guess thats one of Detroit's famous food? Correct me if I'm wrong Detroit residents. 



And you're welcome for beating the Panthers. Sorry, we couldn't beat them in regulation;)

Did she try going to another spot to go in? I've been there with people who had huge purses and they didn't say squat. Sounds like you got someone who was powerhungry

She didn't. I didn't know there were other spots. I honestly have no heard of that rule before in a NHL Arena. So, I was surprised when my friend texted me that. 


Great pics man! Can't wait until I go to The Joe on March 12th vs. the Rangers.


I always notice Zetterberg always has to stand behind Datsyuk when he's in the faceoff circle during warm ups. Must be a superstition? I have a couple pictures of them, one taken in Detroit another one in Buffalo.

Thanks! I love taking pictures for pre game. I couldn't take my long lens so I took my short lens. I always risk about trying to bring by big lens in and the person tried to say you have to take it back to your house. I'm like uh no, nice try. haha. 


Hey Sharkie!  Glad you had a great time.  I'd have lost the purse somehow if it was me  :lol: .  

 It was super fun! Just never heard that rule before. -_-

Thank you everyone for all your tips on where to sit at the Joe. It has really helped!


Probably the best environment that I've been to is in Vancouver. Can't beat the environment in Canada. 


I did go to a Playoff game in Anaheim. That was probably the worst atmosphere that I've been too. That playoff game felt like a Regular season game. But, it was nice to get 30 dollar playoff tickets also.

I know some Canuck fans said  that Vancouver changed it that if you don't have lower bowl tickets, you  can't go to warm ups. But thanks for everyone's tips and where to sit! Really appreciated!

There's no better current arena for hockey atmosphere than JLA. Now we just need to fix which team you're rooting for. 

That will never happen.  haha. Always been a Sharks fan, always will be. It's too bad, the Sharks and Wings aren't rivals anymore since you guys moved to the East. Always loved the games against you guys. It was a good game last night. Good luck the rest of the way. Last night was the first time, I really paid attention to Larkin. Lucky to watch him everyday.
