So I sit on the front row of Section 110, and for the past two weeks, others that sit next to me have either sold their tickets, or given them away. During those past two weeks, I have been ask to sit down, so these people who do not own the seats, can see. Excuse me? What, did you just ask me to do?
News flash - The next person that doesn’t own their seats and asks myself or my wife to sit down, is going to get a roundhouse kick to the face.
No you are not out of line here. It’s a freaking football game.
I also sit in 110, row 7. Some of the people that sit in the first couple of rows never stand and cheer, and actually told the people directly in front of me that they were being “obnoxious” during the NC Central game. They were just cheering, and weren’t being offensive in any way.
Hah, it’s football. I had two elderly folks - had to be in their 70’s- behind me at the GWU game. They were not the FSL owners but they stood a good bit of time when we did, and didnt complain when they wern’t standing, but seemed to smile through it all. If they can handle it, certainly anyone else can too…
As for me and my family, we will stand with the Niners. But then again, I can always blame it on ninerID - that guy “sits” in front of me, but I use the word “sits” VERY loosely! 8)
I guess there are times to stand and times to sit. It does get annoying when the person
in front of you is standing the whole time for nothing and they are the only one standing.
Kids can’t see over/around big adults standing in front of them.
I wouldn’t like a person standing the whole entire game. I prob wouldn’t say anything though. But if you have elderly behind you or a kid and sitting doesn’t obstruct your view, I would sit except for the normal standing plays.
I’ve always had the rule that at sporting events and concerts that anyone anywhere has the right to stand up at any given time. (You also have the right to recline your seat while flying as well).
My first comment to anyone complaining about me standing would be " We are at a Niners football game, get on your feet!"
I think if you are in a scenario where you are the only one in your section standing and people are complaining than maybe you should accommodate but never ever on third down or during a goal line stand.

When I “stand”, I’m standing on the bleachers. Glad there is a huge niner fan behind me.
[quote=“Niner National, post:9, topic:28314”][quote=“J Felt, post:5, topic:28314”]If you sit in section 112 near the front, I do not apologize for my excitement.
Also, if my wife yells at you because you’re not yelling, well, that’s between you and her.[/quote]I sit in the last row of 113 and I could hear your wife yelling at people during the last game. It was awesome/hilarious.[/quote]The people behind us seem to change every game. This last group wasn’t as awesome as the previous iterations.
I’ve told her she needs to take a more inviting approach, but that’s just not her style. This is football, be loud.
[quote=“bleedsgreenandgold, post:10, topic:28314”]I want to know who it was in section 110 row 20 that sold their seats to GW fans?[/quote]At game three there were Central fans in them. Where do you sit? I am in 110 row 19 seats 21-25.
People have a right to do a lot of things, but, at least in my view, an obligation to be considerate of those around them. If other folks are asking you to sit, then look around - if everybody else is standing, then maybe they are out of line. If most everybody else is standing, well, then you are out of line.
Ahh, sorry - what I meant to say was that if everybody near you is standing, then the person asking you to sit is being out of line. If everybody near you is sitting then you are the one that is out of line.
