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

OH, YES.

Everyone stands for big plays, but it is idiotic to stand otherwise, when you can see perfectly fine, from your seat. The team is not going to play better, and all that THESE PEOPLE accomplish, is that they obstruct the view, of the fans behind them.

There used to be such a thing, as 'Being Considerate Of Others'.

..And that doesn't make it O.K.

So…. What section of the clubs are you in?

On this note, I always pay attention to my surroundings - specifically those behind me.  I do this at concerts and sporting events.

 

There are times when everyone in front of me is standing and I have no choice but to stand in order to see the action.  If people are sitting behind me, I simply apologize and explain.

 

 

Don’t lie. Your such a short man that even if a 12 year old in front of you is sitting, you still have to stand on a booster seat to see.

Don’t like it.  Went with my Dad last year who has had several hip replacement surgeries.  Was not comfortable for him.

 

I took breaks and sat down once in awhile.  Was watching the game on the big screen wondering at times, why am I here.

 

With MLB, NHL and NBA, spectators get to sit down.  Why is that?

I'm more than happy to stand the entire game if that's what everyone else in the section is doing.  

 

To me, that means I'm sitting in an area with people who are really into the game like I am, instead of a bunch of twenty-somethings on their phones or old farts who don't even cheer or get excited when we score.

 

That's part of the whole experience that I thoroughly enjoy.  I don't need to be drunk, or even half-lit.  But I want to be around people who are actively living and dying with every play, who want to get fired up and enjoy it the same way that I do.

 

I recognize that there are others who don't have the same opinions, and for them, I hope they find seats that suit their style

 

We didn't sit the entire playoff game against NE, nor did anyone else in our section.  It was a blast, and I wouldn't have it any other way

I stand for the entire game, just can't help it. I get excited and start high-fiving people in my section. Better than the lumps that sat in front me Monday and clapped like they were at a PTA meeting. 

Yeah there is nothing worse than that when you want to have fun. Monday night was like a giant party. I can’t imagine having some duds in the area ruining it for everyone telling them to quiet down or sit down

See my original comment.

Most season ticket holders are likely not as young, or even as healthy, as you, but WTF do you care?

Because those sports suck and don’t generate even half the amount of excitement that football does.

Funny thing. There is no difference in the 'fun level', when you are sitting in your seat.

BTW, Everyone stands, for big plays...

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 don't sit in the Clubs. - Sec. 134

Xanadu!  I've been trying to get there from 132 for 5 years.

I don't think fans in any section stand the entire game.  TV breaks, 2-minute warnings, official reviews....everyone sits during these.  On 3rd down defensively, or when Josh launches a deep pass, everyone stands.
