Section 127 stands the whole game, every game. Want to sit? Watch the game from home.

I can assure you there are sections where people stand the entire game because I have been in one of those sections since 2002. Also, I don't yell and scream while we are on offense LOL.

South Endzone - Rowdy group, you'll be standing all game. Love South Endzone - wouldn't swap seats with anyone.

I would sit down in instances like this, but personally I wouldn't get upset if somebody else didn't. I purposfully bought seats on the aisle so I can take my son who is now four to games where he can lean into the aisle to see. I also won't be mad is people swear at the game because that is going to happen in this atmosphere and I don't expect people to accomodate my son just because he is at the game (even though I would prefer he not exposed to a lot of swearing).

Don't be obtuse. Anyone can sit. What they can't do is demand everyone in front of them sit down, too. Sit if you want, but don't complain for others to do the same.

Yeah,,,all you grandmas and grandpas out there....We needed your help and your pocket book to get this place built but now that we have your money go away and let only we young people use it.

What! you want to pay for it and use it too. Forgetaboutit, we only care about ourselves.

I wouldn't ask that every one sit all the time, I can't do it my self. I believe in all sports fans having the right to do all the things they want,,,,,right up to keeping someone else from enjoying the same rights to view sporting events I have.

I think this might be all bs as I've sat in 5 different locations in the place and never seen people that rude. And hope not to ever.

What they really can't do is sit behind someone who is standing and be able to watch the game. At some point courtesy matters.

I sat in section 340 for 15 years. SAT being the key. I have no desire to stand through an entire football game.

While I appreciate the OP asking the question I do wonder where common sense is sometimes.

To be the only person in a section standing up, having everyone complain about it and then come here and expect different advice (in general) is pretty funny.

So you would sit if the person behind you can't stand - what about the person 10 rows up that due to your standing is now affected (since everyone has to stand up)? Are you going to go row by row and ask if it works for them?

As others said - if the whole section is standing or heck the people in front of you sure stand. Otherwise get up when appropriate and sit when appropriate.......

Don't expect to stand out like a sore thumb and get justified in an online forum...........

Seriously? they shouldnt be able to watch because people in front of them are too selfish to sit? How on earth is that "obtuse"? It's called being considerate of other people around you. I stand on defense too but I would never ruin someone's day if I knew I could help it.

If you're coming with a kid just have them stand on the seats. Safe and easy.

I stand on defense. I stand on offense if the people in front of me stand.

I am crass/unfeeling/uncaring enough to not care whether the people behind me can see or not. Most of the time, it is
the same group of guys and they generally stand too. It is one time in life I could probably be considered an asshole
because it is a hardline stance I take in that matter.

If a guy behind me - correction - if a Seahawk fan behind me wanted me to sit, I would just offer to trade
seats with him or her. I've never had that occur while in Seahawks Stadium, though.

EDIT - When my children were little, I did just what Jones said. I'd tell them to hang onto my shoulder, if they wanted,
but let go if we scored, because I'd likely forget about the person I'm dragging as I jump up and down. Yes, again, I
am an uncaring, inconsiderate person when I'm at a home game. It is about me and the game, nothing else.

In my experience of one whole game, the only time I sat was half time. Being surrounded by the enemy might have had something to do with that. :mrgreen:

Wow jump to conclusions much Lol? Where did I say I was looking for justification to stand from members of this forum? I was just asking peples opinions, you ASSUMED I was looking for validation when in fact I was trying to gather info from other peoples experiences in the stadium. Plus there have been posts from people which seem to believe that standing is ok if people want to stand whether you agree or not.

Second where did I say I was the only person standing? There were multiple people standing in various rows but the people standing were indeed in the minority. Also one person complained so how does imply everyone complained? Pretty humorous post.

Essentially I sit until I need to stand to see, but I have no issue with anyone standing and gladly stand up without complaint when I need to.

If you have elderly people or if someone requests you to sit down, please do, because they paid to watch and are not able to stand the whole time. I don't stand for the whole game, Defense for sure, definitely goal line stands for sure, or end of offensive games when everyone else stands up in front of me. Its the spur of the moment, join the crowd, share the excitement but make the place pleasurable to all fellow fans. Its important that everyone enjoys. I would be mad if someone continuously stood in front of me blocking my sight and never sat down. However if it is the endzone, then only standing allowed, you got to be at your feet:)

Thought I'd throw a bit of a twist on this topic. I live in AK and go to games when i can. I recently went to the packers game and sat in 135A. Figured I'd have the best seat in the house... Worst view ever. Couldn't see around the TV camera and the players on the sidelines. Would have been a lot better vantage point higher up. I wasn't yelling at Kam or Red to have a seat or yell at ESPN to get out of the way. It was an awesome experience to feel the energy of the crowd and be a part of the 12th man. The guy next to me got yelled at for standing after a big play... I was disappointed that someone would suggest that another fans excitement was ruining their game experience. Clink has ADA seating unobstructed, so the 70yo grandpa/grandson arguement is not valid. People are just lazy and want to be delta bravos to other fans just to push their weight around.

I'm with if you want to sit and watch the game sit at home. Going to the stadium is for the experience and atmosphere of yelling and enjoying others excitement.

Nothing would piss me off more then someone standing up in front of me the whole game.

But I sit on the rail so I don't have that problem.

I've only been to Clink twice. Once was against the Packers during preseason, sat most of the time up in the rafters of 300's somewhere...southeast side I think.

The other game was the Rams game to win the division at 7-9 and I stood in the Hawks Nest. I don't recall sitting, I might have, but I think I was up the whole time. Didn't mine standing, personally.

Section 109 (center visitors) stands pretty much continuously, except for TV timeouts. Just the way we roll.

BTW, I agree 100% with the PP who was in 135 A -- the lowest rows are too close to the field, it's hard to see the other side of the field over the players, and given the camber of the field, you can't see the corners of the end zones away from you very well either. I personally think you need to be at least ten rows from the field to get a good vantage point.

Sadly I can't get the wife to go to games anymore. She's 5'3" and just can't see anything. She tried standing on her chair once and an usher came within two minutes. I see it both ways. I know that going to a game requires standing all game long in most cases, so I choose to only go to games that seem special enough that I couldn't stand missing them.

There is a reason why there are chair there and not circles drawn on the floor for people to stand:) The point is not 70 or 80 year old, different people enjoy the game differently, but impeding someone from enjoying the game or blocking their view is not right. A game is an entertainment just like a movie, people need to be able to watch what is going on in the front. I must admin though I stand most of the time except when my 2 year old is with me, then I need to sit down and keep him in my lap or when my wife needs a break holding him:)

I think the Hawks should make an area(s) designated for those fans who want to stand rather than sit,...they could charge them a little less for a "spot" rather than a seat,...might make everybody happy,...

Ok, lets say a fan comes from out of state to a couple of games a year and is physically unable to stand for an entire game but can for short times.

So that person who spent a lot of money to come to the game from a few states away should have stayed at home and watched the game on TV?

Its everyone's stadium, not just the young and agile people. And yes they have places for physically challanged people, probably at least 50-60. Now in a stadium of almost 70,000 that's damned few. I'm perfectly willing to give and take a bit but I see many here that are so full of themselves they think only of themselves.

And remember boys and girls your time will come for this very same problem. How will you handle it when YOU are the one who can't stand for long periods? Or will you stop coming to games cause the stadium you helped pay for is only for the young?

If you're the only one standing while players are in the huddle when the offense is on the field, that's different. Sitting on offense is fine. Sitting when the defense is on the field IS NOT.

Do you cause false starts through your deafening standing ability?

This issue is a moot point to me. If the section is standing then you need to stand to see anyway. If the section is sitting, you will obstruct the views of the people behind you by standing.

Sit on offense, stand on defense. This has always worked for me. If I had somebody behind me who was too young or too elderly or otherwise unable to stand I would offer them my seat and stand behind them. Last year we had 49ers fans who were mad about how much we were standing but I don't care about their feelings or well being so we stood as much as possible.

I'm sorry but in most cases, if you're mad about people standing during the game then you need to be watching the game somewhere else. In the rare occasion of an elderly/disabled person then most people I think would try to help them out in one way or another.

It's the goddam NFL. Stand. Yell. Disregard the pansy asses.

We sit in the front row so it's a non-factor. However, we stand most of the game, if people don't like it they can stand up too. I haven't heard any complaints in Section 319 yet. I can see if someone is just standing up all the time for no reason, but when the team is on D, you gotz to get up! :thirishdrinkers:

every game i've been to usually in the 200 area, is stand on defense , sit on offense... i would not have an enjoyable experience if i had to stand all game, two knee operations would make sure of that... people need to be a little more considerate of your fellow bretheran, cuz some cannot stand all game due to physical restrictions... there is no need to be standing and being loud on offense, other than you have to, to see over the guy in front of you who's standing... fortunately when this happens i can just watch the jumbotron, till whoever finally sits down.. did not realize people stand for the entire game, good to know, next time i purchase tickets i'll make sure i'm not in one of those sections....

It happens at every stadium. I was at the San fran game last Thursday and the people were up ALL THE TIME. It's a football game not a Symphony or a Ballet, no big deal. I will be standing and yelling when I come up for the Vikes game in two weeks (or I hope I have something to stand and yell at).


I was there as well and I have to say that those fans are pretty inconsistent with their sitting and standing. I felt like I was getting an aerobic workout with as many times as I stood up and sat down.

Honestly, there are ALWAYS disabled seats left that are unsold, and ushers will reseat anyone who asks -- they typically are pretty good seats too set up in a way that if the folks below are standing, you still have a great view.

If you have a problem with the amount of standing, I'd find a break in the action, and ask an usher for help. Might also be able to *12 on your cell phone and ask if there is a place you can go to sit...

I totally understand the issue and concerns, but that said, it's pretty easy for a group of only 30-40 to stand and result in the whole section standing... and it's a football game, not an opera.

If someone behind you is unable to stand they should have bought ADA seats.

I think this is a 100 vs 200 or higher level and mid field not end zones. You may prefer to stand that is youe issue but the reason most stand in the 100 level from 10 yard to 10 yard line is because the lowest level seats can not see through the people on the side of the field.

Once they stand every row behind them needs to stand to see the game. Once you get past the concourse between 100 and 200 there is no need to stand. You have a full view of the feild and only need to stand when something exciting happens.

I can see both sides but I would hate to be in the 300 level and have a couple right in front of me standing the whole game so I could not see the game. Yes YOU paid for your tickets and you have your rights to stand, but me right behind you also paid for my tickets and want to see the game as well.

So I think if you want to stand go find tickets in the 100 level otherwise respect the others around you in the higher levels and sit until there is a reason to jump up.
