Along with this change in policy, they will no longer allow fans to leave to use tobacco or tobacco-related products.  These new policies are in place in cooperation with Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Tobacco-Free Erie-Niagara.

 

I personally am very cool with these changes, but that is easy for me to say because I do not smoke or use tobacco.  I understand some of the reasons why they have made the changes, but not having a place for smokers might turn away some longtime fans.  Games are long, this will make it difficult on people who are addicted to tobacco to sit through them.
