Default Down in Front... 10/7/2007

I've never heard so many people complaining about other people standing during a football game. Did anyone else experience this? Hopefully it's just a temporary symptom of having a lot of fair weather fans in the stadium.

Nobody complained in my section -519. We were loud and had fun. What shocked me about the fans is that when we tied it up with 5+ minutes left, tons of people started leaving. What is that???

We stayed in our seats for a good 15 min after the game was over and celebrated. Why rush out and face the crowds?

I recall when I purchased my PSLs that I thought it would be neat to sit in the Bull Pen. However, I chose to decline because the first few years I could probably hang in there, but looking ahead at year 30 and age 90 I better select a different area.

I LOVE the bullpen endzone... I hate being on the other side because half the fans just sit there most of the game... I mean I've seen it where it's a huge play and people in the 100s are sitting there clapping...

I'm ok with asking people to sit down between plays or during timeouts or halftime or whatever... but if the game is going on expect to stand up! Unless it's an elderly person behind me with two broken hips I'm standing

I was in section 127, and nobody complained about people standing that I could tell.

It was bizarre though, as when it got all tied up with 5 and change left, the people next to me left, and a couple of dozen others in my section did too. What gives?

Again, there's a huge issue with fans screaming when we are on offense. I finally told 3 men behind me to shut up.

I've never been a big fan of standing for a whole game. I thought that was just an Aggie thing.

I usually stand and yell on defense and sit and drink beer during offense. But if the people in front of me stand...I stand. No big deal.

I stand for the whole game, but my seats are in the last row of the stadium. This week, I got tickets in section 104. Man, I like my seats better! I can see the plays develop much better and I don't have to worry about people telling me to sit down! We have a lot more fun in the 600's than many do in the 100's from what I saw today. I can't wait to return to my seats in the upper level for the Titans game!

There was no life at all in this game. Just seemed a somber place to be. I think everyone took the loss last week wayyyy to hard.

Also noticed most of the normal folks weren't there for this game. first 5 rows of 117 were lifeless.

Maybe they were just VERY casual fans & assumed that with ol' #8 at the helm the Texans would surely blow it and somehow lose by 2 TDs in the final few minutes. Or maybe they wanted to rush home to watch the local news to find out who won the game?

One thing I noticed about the game yesterday were the fights....
Not Texan on Fish fan, but Texan on Texan fights... There was a pretty good size brawl in my section and then again on the way out of Bud Plaza after the game....




Why can't we all get along?~?~?~?

It's funny b/c this is exactly why i don't go to too many games. I enjoy actually watching the game & all the other ones all the way down to the nuances too much to be in a stadium. I was reminded of this yesterday when i was at the game. A couple of idiots kept standing up for every play & yelling crap that not only showed their lack of football knowledge, but also that they were probably 2 sheets to the wind. My friend later saw one of them stumble into the women's bathroom, but there was just one problem............. he was a male.

To each their own i guess.........
