Do you have a problem with fans standing the entire game?

The first Bills home game I ever attended, the guy behind me tried to fight me because I stood up & cheered when we finally made a big play...

 

At first I thought he was kidding, but no, he legit started yelling at me for jumping up after a long Marshawn Lynch run (we were playing the 49ers in crappy weather, losing 10-3). 

 

We already had barely anything to cheer for, I was just excited to be watching the Bills IN BUFFALO for the first time, but nope, me standing up for a handful of good plays made another Bills fan pick a fight with me 😡

Those who don't like standing for the game would love seeing a San Jose Sharks game. The ushers come right down to you if your are leaning forward in your seat. You have to have your back on the rear seat rest. If you don't, repeat offender, or refuse, you are escorted out. I was told to lean back. Asked why, usher gets on the walkie talkie, two more ushers come down, and tell me if I didn't sit back right now, I would be asked to leave. 


I saw the Sabres there a few years ago and this blew my mind. When I’d lean forward, due to you know, hockey excitement, either an usher or the people behind me would tell me to lean back. I didn’t stand as I had no reason to… but leaning!
 

Double you tee eff.

All you need to say is "I have a back injury and need to lean forward" and they would have left you alone like you had a bad case of herpes.

are you allowed to clap and cheer when they score a goal?

We go to 1 or 2 games a year. I’m getting older (65), and I’ve sat all over the stadium. About 10 - 15 years ago, we started buying club seats off the secondary market. We’re much happier there now. I wouldn’t be able to stand a whole game, nor would I want to. Big plays, big third downs, of course we stand and cheer. I’m lucky to be in a financial situation that allows it.

You are not the fan we are talking about,  what you did was fine imo

It's the people who stand continuously for 3 hours

This just popped into my memory. At a Rush concert in 2004, this guy got right in my then wife's space for dancing during the show. I got in front of him, telling him to leave my wife alone and if she wanted to dance, she had every right to. He got all tough guy on me, then like 20 people watching this unfold got right in this guys face. He left pretty quietly after that.

What I DO have a problem with are that fans who find 50 reasons to leave their seat during the game.  

I second this. People that get up constantly during the game to go to concessions or bathroom or something and having to get up or move 50 times a game is more annoying I can fix the standing problem by standing myself

People dance to Rush?  What am I missing here?  I see Michael Jackson doing his tunes, weirdo that he was, and I get the dancing.  But how does one dance to "Lakeside Park", "A Farewell to Kings", or "Temples of Syrinx"?

 

As you know, I am a huge Rush fan, but I'm really confused about their danceability aspect.

My ex made La Villa Strantiago a "so you think you can dance" top hit.  Many female Rush fans I know dance their asses off to the boys.

I get that, but getting mad at someone for standing 3 hours straight is actually understandable.

 

But if people can get SO mad at someone jumping up periodically, enough to try & start a physical confrontation, seems like standing the entire game would be enough to burn the entire stadium down 😅
