    CE-You went to game last Saturday in that stormy weather. That looked like a good one to sit out.

    Friday was an intense game. Were you in your regular spot?

Not wanting a confrontation without really knowing the presumably Cajun fans behind us, we sat.
    It made the victory a minute later feel shallow and the joyful feeling was less than it should have been. Should I have turned around and said to those people what I wanted to say in a loud voice or given them a mulligan that one time?
    I think I witnessed that - or maybe another episode - from behind the kill-joy - in upper 106. Everyone was standing at the end of the Saturday UTA game... The guy/couple yelling "down in front" to at least a couple of kids needs to get with the program, stand and support his team. There were no handicap issues here. The kids politely sat down at the rude command from above... but I wanted them to remain standing like everyone else and when they sat, I wanted to say something about how the kill-joys needed to get into the game and with the moment... but I refrained.

    The very interesting... and always controversial... fan sitting/standing and the disagreements. I have read many articles across the country on the subject... once when I seriously cared. I came away without a perfect solution... but with some generally agreeable beliefs. One, the program... for every sport... and in every section of a facility (most notably where season tickets are sold) should have fan conduct codes. 1) You will not intentionally ignore or intentionally disrespect other fans right to enjoy their experience - security will intervene and resolve the conflict. 2) All "student sections" are stand first - sit at your own peril. 3) Other designated sections, non-season ticket, are stand first - sit at your own peril. 4) If you have persons in your group that cannot stand - sit in locations where they are least affected - but they are not to demand others sit who block their view. 5) Season ticket areas may be designated as stand first - sit at your own peril. This should be specified in the fan code of conduct (and all event security have the mapping). 6) All other season ticket areas are to follow "do not prevent area fans from enjoying their experience". If you are an exception in your area, you are to adjust accordingly. Generally accepted practices are for fans to stand at "high excitement" pivotal points at events. If you are a sitter during those occasions, either stand or miss out. If the entire section are sitters, even during "high excitement" pivotal points of an event, don't be the single or few annoying fan/fans. And in all cases, try to be amiable to your fellow fans and even opposing fan groups. This is not life or death. And young people get their cues from us. We do not need more ___ holes in the world.

    Way too complicated. Just be reasonable and courteous.

    Clearly those who stand force everyone behind them to follow regardless of their preference. One row of standers could conceivably force everyone behind them to have a bad experience.

    IMO it was reasonable and courteous for Pride to remain standing for those few moments.

    Everything else I agree with Vic. I hold tickets to FB Basketball, and baseball. If there is some one in my seats when I arrive and there are two or 4 adjacent seats or one row up or down, the last thing I'm worried about is running them off. Most likely, they aren't season ticket holders, so a good view of a good game could convince them to buy season tickets moving forward.

    If the venue is full, it's a different story and I politely ask them to move.
    And so now when the people who have the rights to the seats you take get to the game, you now have a series of musical chairs when it could have been addressed before. This happened to us as at a game recently (Not Cajuns). We paid a lot for our tickets and get to the game and the entire section is full. We asked the people sitting in OUR seats to move and they refused at first saying "There are people in our seats, we can't move". Obviously this infuriates me and I tell him to grow some and tell them to get out his seats so he can get out of mine. Initially they actually fought me on this before we finally had to get pretty aggressive. Just move.
