The only time people are told to sit down is when you are THE ONLY PERSON STANDING UP. If the entire section is sitting down, then sit your a** down too. Ushers do NOT tell people to sit down when something exciting happens. Are you kidding me? Lol.
This whole "told me to sit down" thing is so overblown, its ridiculous. People making up stories, assumptions, etc.
One thing that should be clear is that noise should NOT be made when our offense has the ball pre-snap, or when the quarterback still has the ball in his hands. Noise should ALWAYS be made when the OTHER team has the ball pre-snap, or when their quarterback still has the ball in his hands.
JUST BEFORE the snap is when the most noise should be made, so they can't hear their own calls.
Many fans don't seem to know these things.
Also, "noise" and "standing up" are two different things. I can't IMAGINE the staff would tell anyone to be quiet in the above situations.
Two great posts.
I've been to 5 games at the 'Stick to date. I ALWAYS make noise. Last year's game vs. the Saints caused me to lose my voice for 3 days or so. I got no guff from anyone around me. Keep in mind, as the previous post points out, DO NOT MAKE NOISE WHEN SF IS ON OFFENSE. I thought this was common, basic knowledge but apparently not.
Furthermore, although I want to stand up during the whole game, I realize that the fans around me aren't as intense during game time. So when it's third down and 5 for the opposing offense, I stand up, yell and politely encourage others to do so as well (gesturing, not actually asking them haha). This has also never caused any issue with surrounding fans nor event staff.
Basically, people blow the whole "I can't yell and stand up" thing way out of proportion. Stand up when it's appropriate, doing so sporadically during key moments of the game. Make noise the WHOLE time the opposing offense is on the field.
Implore those around you to make noise and stand up when the team needs it (just standing around and raising your arms up works just fine and people don't take offense to it).
I wanna hear this place tremble tomorrow. Let's make a new name for ourselves as fans here fellas (and ladies!).
