Before I even got to my seat on Saturday I had a blue hair tell my wife to get down because he couldn't see.
It was before the opening kickoff.
Everyone else was standing because Cochran just told them to.
He was looking thru binoculars.
I'm usually pretty good about standing/sitting and I stay pretty aware of what everyone else is doing around me. So to have some guy to tell my wife to get down before I even sat down was pretty friggin frustrating. I have to say, that was a first for me.
should have stood the whole game for spite.
and people complain about BDS not being loud.. sigh.
I haven't been told to sit down since 4th grade.
I had a similar instance before MSU game..I stood up and accidentally spilt my coke below me and it ran down a few rows and before i could apologize this older gentleman demanded I clean it up immediately or else..I said no sir I'm not your maid and this is a football stadium not your personal kitchen
Should have given him a round house to the face
Had the same thing happen to us once by some old farts. They didn't ask us to sit down, they told us to sit down. I said " since you did not ask us, I will continue to stand." Then they go get the police to come talk to me. The police told them they cant make someone sit in their sits. Apparently they told the police we were drinking alcohol in the stadium......... we were, but I didn't tell them that.
Just ignore him. You have every right to stand.
Sounds like typical BDS behavior. Most people treat it like they were going to a polo match. What say you ole chap?
My daddy taught me to respect my elders....................that being said Dad would have told the old man to "shut the hell up"........
take that with a grade of saw.....
It happened to me in my seats I have for every home game...I just blankly looked at the chick who wasn't that old, turned around and stood for 3/4 of the game. Sorry I'm doing my part to be a champion.
a worthy topic for bol, to be sure!
Unfortunately, this is becoming a theme in a lot of places as venues move to make the environment friendly for all. I witnessed 2 heated exchanges in my section on Saturday over people being asked to sit down. I attended the Reds v Giants NLDS game 3 that wen into extra innings here in cincy. Big game in the fact that the Reds would have advanced in the post season for the first time in many years. A guy was almost escorted out for standing during a crucial point in the game. At the bengals game they have a video tutorial on when it is ok to cheer. Just part of the society we are living in.
I was instructed to stop shaking my shaker this weekend. I was in the North Upper Endzone, the couple told me to stop several times and then hit me with the "we are the regular season tickets holder here, these are our seats." My response was "well the regular season ticket holder for my seat sold them to me so I will continue to shake this shaker till my heart is content." This all happened and came to a head in the 4th quarter. They were more worried about my shaker than what the Tide was doing on the field. I don't get to go to many games but when I do I am going all out and supporting my team, who which I had to remind them is the same team they are supposed to be cheering for!!!!! No wonder we can't create home field advantage!

Hate to upset you but this 60 year old doesn't plan on dying anytime soon. Reread your post and then talk to us about respecting others.

Yea, your prob right. Maybe I should say 70 Jk. I was going off my personal experiences and shouldn't generalize. My bad. I guess a jerk is a jerk, no matter what age. I will remove as to not offend.

Too many old lazy people at BDS. Will always be that way. They should have sections by age groups. (LOL jk).
Good move my man. Respect you for it.
I will probably be 70 before my name gets to the top of the waiting list for season tickets. Hopefully I'll have enough life left in me to stand up for 3 hours per week.

Do you know how to properly shake your shaker? You do need to be careful that you only have a slight break in the elbow, with most of the torque coming from the wrist. There are too many full-elbow shakers in the stands, and that does cause some problems with the backlash of your shaker. If any part of your shaker ends up behind your shoulders, you're doing it wrong. Keep those things out of people's faces.
I'll be giving lessons on this on the quad this Saturday around 1 p.m. next to Bidgood.
I'm lucky because most of the people In my section stand at most of the same times, also the guy behind me who sits most the game has never once complained of me standing. He stands as much as he can and if I block his view he simply turns his head 15 degrees to the right and watches the play on one of those nice jumbos our university has supplied for us. By the way, if your seats are in section "A" you really need to rally the troops. Those people rarely stand unless its on a huge possession or play.

They should have all the seniors sit in the top deck imo. Have all the rowdy people down close to the game.
There is a guy that sits in front of me sometimes who I would like to send your way. I figure it like this, if the person in front of me stands, thus obstructing my view, I stand myself. I can't even imagine having the nerve to tell, or even ask, someone to sit. People don't pay money to attend a game to have some random person try to tell them what to do. If someone asked me to sit I would probably tell them to KMA.
