which lenses/cameras are now being allowed to sporting events

in the early 2000's I never had a problem bringing digital cameras (like nikon d200 and Nikkor 80-400vr) with any lens to sporting events (indoors or outdoors). it seems like now they're cracking down on "pro" cameras. it was always in their rules and FAQ to not be able to sell any photos without permission. I never had any intention of doing so. Has this been a big problem? i haven't seen anything in the news about people trying or selling sports photos from the stands for money.

i'm now seeing the wording where video is prohibited (except GoPro?) and professional cameras (defined as any camera with an interchangeable lens) are prohibited.

A couple years ago, I was turned away at the Pepsi Center (Denver, CO) when trying to bring a Nikon D800 and 200-500mm lens in. I had brought similar cameras in for 10 years before that with no problem.

Anyways, what micro 4/3 cameras and/or lens/camera combinations are being allowed in nowadays? i would think they would allow a range-finder type Pen camera with a mid-zoom like a Oly 12-100 f/4 in since it doesn't look too pro.
