    This is a REAL problem... WTF?

    "I was in the Southeast corner with my family. Some nitwit with his three daughters won't sit down. People are yelling at him "down in front." A very nice older lady walks up to him, talks to him, then came back and sat down. I asked her if she asked him to sit down. She said she did, but he wouldn't do it. "I don't have to," he said. She told him she was a middle school guidance counselor. One of the things she tells her students is, "If you wonder if your behavior is appropriate, look around at those around you and see what they are doing. Everyone around you is sitting down. Can you please sit so we can watch the game?" He just shook his head. Pretty sad when you're there with your three kids and your behavior is worse than a middle schooler. The dumb*** finally sat down in the second quarter. Everyone around us applauded."


    Really? This is what we complain about?

    Your last line does not match your game watching beliefs.

    You rant about someone standing then end your post with stand up. Its a FB game people do stand at FB games.

    Re: This is a REAL problem... WTF?

    The OP didn't quote properly. He was talking about this post from the "Voices from the stands" thread:

    Thought the discussion was covered in the other thread...

    I think he was pasteing in someone else's post from voices in the stands and then adding his commentary. FWIW.

    If it was me they wanted to sit down, I would of explained that if they would donate more money than me, this wouldn't be a problem, now would it.

    The "problem" is the fans that sit during the game, even on defensive 3rd downs and then stand thru an entire timeout.

    Re: This is a REAL problem... WTF?

    Just so it's clear, I don't sit on third downs, I get up and yell just like most fans but It's terribly stupid to stand up the whole game in front of other fans, blocking their view. If you are in the student section, whatever is the groups pleasure, otherwise sit in your seat and get up when it's called for, not forever. Just like ignornt BB fans who do the same at Hilton, doing the same ANTICS.
