Default Staying in your seats

Am I the only one that was raised to use the bathroom and get your refreshments before the game and then stay in your seat throughout the game until such time that you are ready to leave the stadium?

It's amazing to me, because these are grown adults that are constantly getting up and leaving their seats, disrupting the entire row and then returning. Multiple times per quarter.

Stay in your seat until halftime at least.

Default Re: Staying in your seats

I have seats right next to the aisle seats. That's even worse for situations like this.
Everyone has to get past you from the center of the row back towards you.

Not only do they constantly get up and down, they do it while the play is going on. At the very least wait until a break in the action.

I hate to sound picky on this, but this was hammered into my head even as a 5 or 6 year old at high school football games.

Sit down, don't move and watch the dang game.

In my house if you need to walk in front of the TV on the way to the facilities during the game you better crawl like an infantryman or risk getting a spitwad right up the wazzou.

We affectionately call the people that sit next to us as "The Up and Down Gang".

They have averaged 8 ups and downs for the entire aisle every game for the past 10 years.

Guess it depends on how much you're drinking during the game. Lots of bathroom breaks.

Default Re: Staying in your seats

I never used to leave my seat at sporting events. Ever. Then we had kids....

I feel bad, as we are (purposely) in the middle of our section and not near the aisle, so that we don't have to be disturbed to get up and down. Unfortunately, now with a 3y.o. and 7m.o., we're up 2-4 times per game (potty, food, diaper, etc). So we do some disturbing. I hate doing it, but I have no (well, little) choice...

Exactly. I used to be on the aisle. Got them moved to the middle. Now if anyone crosses me it's because they are idjits & I let them know.

Actually, it only bothers me when they try to move while a play is going on. There is usually plenty of time to move around between plays.

It's been my experience that some come to watch the game , some come to party . I went to a preseason game vs the Saints in my wife's boss's good seats behind the Saints bench on the 40 yd line . We were in the last 4 seats and you'd thought we were doing the wave as much as we were getting up to let folks out or in . It wouldn't be so bad but they had no clue what was going on . It would be 3rd and two and they wanted to get through . They should have special social seats for those who ain't there to watch the game .

I agree with you in theory - but some times all that liquid refreshment tells you otherwise.

You are so tiny, they probably don't notice it when you go by. We are in the middle, so very seldom have to get up to let people by. I hate the aisle seats, you feel like a jack in the box.

Before the game and at half time is the only time I leave my seats, other than standing up to yell.

I'm on the aisle, too. The ONLY aisle. I'll count how many times I have to stand up come 1/1. I'm placing o/u at 8.

If you stay standing the whole time, it's not that big a deal. Why are you sitting?

Default Re: Staying in your seats

tailgating+beer+beer at the stadium+smoke breaks+hunger pains+more beer=multiple trips up the stairs! Such is life! I just wish if they had to get up it would be during one of the MULTIPLE commercial breaks they take, or during the two minute warning, or SOMETIME other than when we are on offense. Kinda irritating, but, I stand most of the game anyway, so not really bothered all that much.

It sounds to me like you don't belong at football games than, and your sofa at home is a better place. Who are you to expect others not to be able to go get a beer or a refreshment whenever they choose after paying over a hundred bucks at a game?? You remind me of those people who get upset because you want to stand at a game and not sit down the entire time.

When I go to football games I come and go as I please. I paid for my ticket, and leaving the row is not rude. When I go to a game, I can usually expect

* to have other fans coming and going in my aisle where i have to get up and let them by.

* I can expect to probably have beer spilled on me by the people sitting behind and above me. (Stuff like that happens at football games)

* I can expect to stand even if I don't want to, because the fans in front of me want to stand. (If I want to sit the entire time, than I can pony up the extra cash and buy myself a ticket in the front row.)

* I can expect to hear some really loud and obnoxious fan that yells the entire time with a weird voice.

* I can expect to sit next to some really fat guy whose arm takes up two arm rests. (It happens at times.)




If you can't handle or deal with these conditions, than going to an NFL football game is simply something you shouldn't partake in. There are like 75,000 fans at football games and they all paid for their ticket just like you did. Everyone doesn't want to be lazy and sit down the entire time for 3 hours. People drink beer and they need to use the restroom, they get hungry,(Everyone doesn't tailgate and eat before games), people sometimes have friends in other sections they visit, and people take smoke breaks from their seats. It's pretty inconsiderate to expect everyone to view and partake in their game experience the same way that you do.
