I bet their fans can't wait for game day!
that's sickening, stay home if you want to sit. i'll be dammed if i'm gonna drive 3 hours to sit. i own this seat from here to heaven mofo
from the link
Just another step towards the complete wussification of America. People drive me insane!!!!
Next they're going to tell the players not to hit each other so much so that children don't get frightened.
I heard you must also now crawl to your seat after buying beer and a hot dog, since some people can't see past the aisles.
So are they going to kick out 60,000 people every game?
I blame SheTexan !! If G'Ma stopped complaining about having a right to stand in the Bullpen, maybe this would not be an issue league wide....
Thanks G'Ma !!
Seriously, what a load of crap !!!
This is absolutely assinine....
AND, they set up a text messaging system..
I still remember me and my brother being told to sit down during a Astros playoff game.
They were talking about how with the HDTV's and surround sound that it makes watching from home a better experience on the Dan Patrick show yesterday. I don't know about that because I like to feel the atmosphere of a live event but man it's getting silly. Maybe these people should be the ones that stay home and not ruin it for the "hooligans".You go to get excited and not sit on your hands to root for your team.
They're going to be golf clapping in Arrowhead..........
I definetely don't think standing should be banned, but I think people should exercise some common sense. If it is 3-3 in the second quarter, and it 4th and 10 and the punter runs on to the field, I think we can all agree that is not exactly a time to be standing. If it's 4th and goal at the one, of course. Stand to your hearts content and yell and scream or whatever. Remember that the people behind you paid just as much as you and some may not be able to stand for long periods. Simple common sense, decency and politeness goes a long way in life.
If someone asks you to sit, do so and be a gentleman about it. That's sort of the way I conduct myself in life in general. Now if it's unreasonable, IE they are about to score a TD, then I can see being perturbed. Othwerwise, take a seat.
I don't know. If someone in front stands up, I think it's their right. I can either stand up and look over them, or stay in my seat and watch the monitors or my kangaroo TV. I expect the person behind me to make the same choice, if I'm standing.
I haven't seen a problem with this in Reliant. Usually, the fans are standing at the appropriate times (before kickoff, goal line, late in the game, big field goals, big 3rd downs). I realize that the Bullpen stands the entire game. If someone doesn't care for that, they should choose another section. It's not the opera, it's a football game. And sometimes, you are going to have to stand.
Sorry. I didn't see the other thread.
This is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard.
LMAO! That Hitman person seems like a true puh c.
I guess I agree with Porky on this one.
There are certain sections and certain times when standing is not only accepted, but encouraged. And I think that makes total sense. If you want to sit in the bullpen, be prepared to stand. If its 4th and 1, or hell, even 3rd and 5, be prepared to stand.
But to say anyone anywhere at anytime should stand the entire game can really screw up the experience for some people. I plan to be a Texans fan until I physically can't stand anymore, and Im sure I'll be annoyed if I have to watch the monitor at the game rather than the field because some guy in front of me has to stand on a 4th and 10 punt.
Agreeing with Lucky, however, I don't really think I've ever had a problem at Reliant with people standing or sitting at inappropriate times.
Don't ya just LOVE how they wanted to place blame on the "85 year old woman who teaches 2nd grade." READ my mind guys/gals cause there is NO way I can post whats going through it right now. After all, this is a family board!! Load of crap doesn't come close to describing this absurb rule!
Unfortunately, I can see this happening all over the NFL, even at Reliant. It already has started to some degree. Overalls got kicked out of the Bullpen last season because he chose to stand, IN A SECTION WHERE STANDING IS ENCOURAGED!! I bet every poster on this board has a story to tell about some a-h who wanted them to SIT down!! What really p*sses me off is that they want to place blame on the elderly and the drunks! B-S!! It's your middle age family guy who brings his wife and kids to a pro football game for Sunday dinner, or your corporate bigwig who uses a Sunday aft at the game to talk shop, or your arrogant seatmate who thinks just because he paid 60+ bucks for a seat he owns it. A PSL owner does NOT OWN a seat so he/she can do as they please. They own the right to have that seat for as long as they pay for the ticket. If they start a fight, get overly obnoxious, drunk, ruin the game for fellow seatmates, then they will get ejected from the game, PSL owner or not. These are the people who show up in the second quarter, get ticked off if you bump them while they are eating their stuffed potato or nachos, have NO idea who #80 is, and leave in the middle of the fourth quarter so they can beat the traffic! These are the people who need to stay at home! JMO!
Do you all remember the Tenn game where over half the fans left because we were getting out butts kicked, BUT, Sage ALMOST brought us back to WIN that game? There were about 30,000 fans left and Reliant was electric!! Everyone was on their feet, screaming, cheering, and doing what football fans are suppose to do, SUPPORT YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM! We lost that game but it was an awesome experience! Give me a stadium with 20-30 thousand screaming, STANDING fans anyday over one with 70-80 thousand who are sitting on their butts! JMO!!
Signed: The little OLD lady from Pasadena!!
I propose that aside from player injuries and the number two (number one for some) and a few exceptions, we ban sitting overall.
I was there but I was too drunk.........
So true, so true!!!
Agree. This is the type of thing that makes me talk a blue streak. I'll try it without offending. "What a dumb %$^ing rule. Are they really this $%^&ing dumb?" Thanks, I feel better.
If I wanted to sit the entire game, I'd stay home. My leather easy chair is 100x more comfy than those goat herder seats at Reliant.
What next? The official NFL golf-clap?!
