I am curious to what people think about standing during the game. My buddies and me have had seats in Section 112 since the stadium opened and we have stood for every game for the entire game. This seems to be the standard in our section and we have never had an issue. The whole section stands.
Three seasons ago I bought two seats in Section 107 to use for me and my son when he gets a little older (to establish a father-son tradition). I have used the seats for 2-3 games and continued to stand. Nobody seems to mind that much but there is a lot of sitting in this section. One person complained one game and I said I have always standed at games and he seemed to be ok with the explanation.
Fast forward to the Pats game, a few friends were able to score some seats in Section 204 so I decided it would be fund to sit with them for a game. While I was standing I was harassed a number of times on whether I would sit down. I refused because they did not ask politely and eventually an usher came to talk to me and my buddies. I explained that I have never sat for a game and I know he couldn't require that I sit down. He then tried to intimidate me by threatening to kick me out and saying I was violating the rules. This was the Pats game and it appeared to me that literally 80%-90% of the stadium was standing (obviously the game was amazing). I refused and the guy never came back but it was quite annoying to deal with all his antics and intimidation tactics (I wasn't drunk, swearing or acting inappropriate so there was really nothing he could do). So my question is what are people's opinions with standing? I like to stand because I feel more involved and closer to the action. I would not hesitate to sit down if someone elderly, young, or disabled was behind me but I am not going to sit just to sit. Would love to hear people's opinions on this issue. Thanks all.
