    Xmradiodave,

    I sit in 121 everygame and it's always like that. My back still hurts though for standing the whole time.

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    Thats exactly what i am getting at. I mean I am not saying we have to stand all game but on 3rd down, or a tight fourth quarter then we should be on our feet to yell, scream, and bang on the seats (In order to do this someone has to be standing in front of you).

    Now if you do have medial conditions I an understand asking for the person in front of you to sit down on offense and when its 1st or 2nd down. But on third down let me stand please.

    LET MY PEOPLE STAND!!!!!

    I used the seat backs primarily for kicking and such at 00:44 of the fourth quarter.

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    I yell and scream all game long, and I beg for people to get up as sec 126 can be somewhat lame at times. I will tell you this don't ever tell me to sit down, I pay a hell of lot for my tix and I will do whatever I can to have fun and cheer on my team. I do think bmore fans are getting weaker as ticket prices keep climbing and we are starting to see a wealthier crowd

    We have had this debate several times a year since I began playing on Ravens message boards in 1998.

    Standing up gets you a little more lung power, so it does add a little 12th man noise advantage. On a cold night, dancing in the stands may help with blood circulation. But if you are standing in front of someone who is sitting, you would be rudely blocking his view, and if he calls security, you'll be asked to sit or be asked to leave.

    I'm in the first row. I stand on 3rd & 4th downs when the opposing teams huddle up and walk up to the line of scimmage, but then sit down. The people behind me used to complain when I would stand through the play -- now they don't.

    I sit in section 124. My section was mostly standing the whole time. Sometimes I had to sit because my lowerback was hurting a bit.
    It was like a playoff atmosphere at the game and cheers were very loud!

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    I know the guy behind me so I don't feel bad when I stand. If the guys in front of me stand I will do so too. Knowing these people since we moved to the new stadium...we usually stand for 3rd/4th downs on defense. Other then that we sit. I can make as much noise sitting in my seat as I can do standing.

    I sat in the club level once and stood on defense and I was asked to sit down by a yuppie rich boy. I told him if he wanted to sit and watch the game then go home in front of a TV. His wife was BSing with the couple next to them the whole game talking about everything except football.

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    I dont know, I mean I understand people pay GOOD money to go these games and do have a right to sit down, but at the same time I pay good money to go to the game and have the right to stand if I want. To be honest, I would gladly switch places with somone behind me if it means they got to sit and I got to stand. To quote Dr. Evil "It's freakin Freezing in here Mr. Bigglesworth."

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    The bigger problem IMO is the cheering when we have a 4th down and we go for it.

    Or when we get a 1st down inside the 5 after a nice play and the idiots yell and scream.

    Yes, idiots.

    If you cannot be quiet when our offense is in the huddle and lined up before the snap, then you don't know football.

    Re: Some Fan Concern

    Now why would someone with a bad back wanna fight?

    And of course AZRaven doesn't stand up...He lives in Arizona!! Bidwell's apathy is probably contagious...LOL

    And screw all the bullcrap, I'm standing every time I beleive it to be critical to our defense's chances of making the other team punt...
