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

For the 2022 Bills, I have no problem with standing the entire game.  Might as well….this team creates stand worthy plays just about every minute.

 

i find standing much more comfortable-  stadium seats are terrible for backs.  I’d rather just stand and dance 🕺

IMO, people who buy a ticket have a right to stand just as much as those who have a right to sit

If someone decides to stand, the people behind them no longer have the option to sit. There is no “right” to stand all game.

Standing on concrete is worse for your back than being uncomfortable for a few hours in a plastic seat that has give.   

 

That's partly why the metal bench seats were done away with. The more give they have, they better they are for you to conform to.

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'.

 

As much as I love being in that stadium to see my Bills, this is one of the issues that has kept me from going in recent years. We see that amazing crowd on TV and my wife says how much she wants to go again, but standing barely 5 ft tall, she’d be stuck watching the Jumbotron for most of the game. 
    I went to see The Who at the hockey Arena in Atlanta (22 years ago this week).  Some damn yankee I’d met through a Bills’ message board had come down from upstate NY with his yankee attitude and was sitting next to me. He almost got into it at the concert with some guys in front of us who wouldn’t sit.  I wonder whatever happened to him. Probably got his yankee arse kicked eventually. 😉

…And yes by the way, it does make a difference when standing up if you're going to be screaming your head off trying to help get the opposing offense to false start or have trouble hearing audibles. Why?, because the diaphragm and lung expansion and your ability to project vocally increases when standing. This is why choir singers typically stand and musical stage performers (which I do on weekends) who sing typically stand. Its just science. Folks can look it up if they like. (someone laughed at that point earlier but its true)

 

There are zero reasons to stand up while your team is on offense outside of quick celebrations.

 

"The standing position also assists in good singing technique. Breathing from your diaphragm rather than from your chest will maximize the amount of air you can get into your lungs. This in turn will let you get the maximum amount of power and strength from your voice, and to control it with minimum effort. Standing allows for full movement of the diaphragm, whereas sitting can squash it and restrict its movement."

You are probably the same poster from last time this was discussed.

Stand up for the big plays obviously, but yeah, I paid to see the game, not your back or the crack'a yo a$$. It gets irritating when people just refuse to sit down. It's like... wow, a first and ten draw up the middle for three, better start doing backflips!

No. It's your responsibility to yell as loud as you can on every snap the offense doesn't have the Ball. The hype spills over to the offense. 

Are you unable to yell while sitting down?

I have no issue with it. The people that sit around me don’t stand the whole time so you have to be very mindful of those around us. It’s kind of annoying. I’d rather not have to worry about anyone else.

I have a solution for you.....

..That is, if you have no consideration for other fans...

You may be right in general, but for me, being hunched over forward the entire game is much worse than standing. I have super broad shoulders, as do all of my friends that I sit next to.  It’s always a tight fit that ends up with me leaning coward hunched over—- or preferably standing

Yes.  Standing when the Bills have the ball is stupid.  Sit down and be quiet pre-snap, cheer or stand up for a big play on offense, then sit and calm down again for the next play.  Standing when the visitor has the ball is allowed.  It's easier to scream from a standing position since the diaphragm is not restricted, so standing to make noise is fine.  People who stand and don't say or do anything to make noise piss me off.

If your suggestion is, “you paid a lot for those seats, do whatever the hell you want” we are in agreement. I’m not responsible for those around me. They can either stand to see or watch on the monitor above. That’s a “them” problem, not a “me” problem. I generally don’t stand of those around me aren’t but often I want to.

The same people keep “ laughing” at the presentation of the science behind standing projection. Flat Earthers? 
 

Describing why standing makes sense AT THE RIGHT TIME seams reasonable to me and not overly funny. Idk

It's funny. I convinced my 70 year-old mother to let me move our seasons from 2nd row upper to 28th row lower, and you know what her favorite part was? Being free to stand. The energy of a standing section is awesome.

 

Obviously you don't stand if no one in front of you is; that's unkind. But then again, remaining seated at such an exciting event is kind of stifling. I was given grief even on many defensive 3rd downs last year. Boggles the mind.
