In an effort to get more people to come to Paul Brown Stadium, the Bengals will allow people to leave Paul Brown Stadium for the purposes of sucking tar and nicotine into their lungs.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, fans attending NFL game at Paul Brown Stadium will be allowed to get their Mad Men on, exiting the building for a smoke break and then re-entering.
In past years, fans have defied the rules against smoking, accomplishing a different kind of one-cheek sneak in concourse areas and restrooms.
Smokers will have special areas outside Gates A, C, D, and E, which will be sectioned off with bike racks. (Sounds swanky.)
“We recognize there are strong feelings on both sides of the issue,” Bengals director of business development Bob Bedinghaus said. “We hope with this accommodation we can strike a middle ground.”
Especially if the middle ground makes the cash register ring by giving folks who can’t go three hours without a cigarette the ability to get their fix.
Besides, maybe it’ll help persuade the President to come to a game.
