CLEVELAND -- A new season means new hope for the Cleveland Browns. 

And also some new rules.   

"I was excited three months ago. We love football," said Rick Holt.

A new NFL policy means no purses, coolers or fanny packs. Just small wallets, wristlets and clear bags will be allowed inside pro football stadiums across the country. 

The rules will be first enforced in Cleveland Thursday as the Browns take on the Rams.  

"It's inconvenient but there's nothing you can do. It's not a Browns policy. It's an NFL policy," said Kristen Dontenville, who read about the changes online. "Bring your card, ID, some money. That's all you really need." 

"My wife, I don't know how she feels about it, but I'm OK because I don't bring anything," said Larry Oliver. 

"All I take is my wallet, my keys and my tickets. That's all I need. And this year I'll take my telephone because we're supposed to get cell service," said Holt.   

Fans might notice the signal strength improvements and new "screening chutes" to get you into FirstEnergy stadium quickly.  

Fans will also see highly produced video team introductions, a stadium DJ, a drum line and other game-day rituals.   

The upgrades Browns fans hope to enjoy, but it's still the action on the field they come out to celebrate. 

"I'd rather see them win. More than anything, I could care less about all that. I'd rather see them win," said Holt.
