PDA

View Full Version : Sit down on offense, stand up on defense. It is that simple.

I attend 1 - 4 games a year at Arrowhead in section 102, row 14. Fans who have seats around us have had them for a long time and are the intelligent fans that have helped earned the good rep for being smart fans around the NFL.

The row in front of us is dedicated to some of the visitors allotment of lower bowl seats. Early in the game the guy in front of me was standing when no one around was standing. It started to get annoying.

A slight rumble started of people who knew that we needed to start to tell this person to sit down. We started to yell at the guy but we noticed that others were staring to stand while we were on offense.

I actually got the guy to sit down but then almost the whole stadium between the 30's in the lower 15 rows was standing. My Dad pointed out that it was even going on on the other side of the stadium (Chiefs Sideline.)

These were not Viking fans but Chiefs fans and they were all over the stadium standing when we had the ball on offense (not like there's a lot to see.)

Let us start a grass roots educational effort to inform fans that we stand and yell on defense and sit and shut up on offense. Special teams doen't matter so let the rookies waste their voices on kick-offs.

We sit in 122, row 15. We've never really had the "rule" about when to/not to stand during the game. There are some games when we've had to stand for the majority of the game. Generally, it's how you describe it, but not always. You got something against standing up? :p

I have been sitting in those seats since '86 and it has always been that way. There might be a lingering stand after a good offensive play but not constant stand during offensive drives.

It seemed to me like the Arrowhead fans were in the LJ rust shake off mode.

Standing leads to yelling. We do not make noise while on offense. We are not in Oakland.

Some people were standing every play in preseason. Annoying. Sit on offense, stand on defense, I can dig that during season play.

They're called seats , but they're located in the stands.

I'll be at your uneducated stadium next week. When fans don't maximize the home field advantage it shows up on the field.

The players also have a say in the outcome though...

General NFL fan rule.

Your team on offense - sit so the QB can audible and the WR's and OT's can hear the signals.

Your team on D - be as loud as you can so you prevent audibles and the lineman from hearing the QB's signals.

Pretty basic to me. Standing causes everyone to in the stadium to yell and then the pack mentality takes over and people start yelling.

I did yell down in front and got the 1/2 a section in front of me to sit down.

As I said in the post though the fans across the field from us (Chiefs side) were also standing.

Do you think we should stand and make noise when we are on offense? Why is this crying?

Home field advantage is that 70k fans are quiet when your team is on offense. Then, they are loud on defense.

I don't have to go into the advantages involved.

I mean sometimes you have to stand up to see the action on the field...we have 2 sets of tickets and one of the sets has a somewhat obstructed view and you cant see if you aren't standing up...I can understand where that fellow was coming from.

However, everyone knows to shut up when you are on offense. I do agree with you that we have some dumb fans. I hate it, every game they always get loud right when we are going into scoring position.

CP wanted Arrowhead to be like a college atmosphere.
What do you think they do in college games (THE ENTIRE GAME)?

The "elders" are the one's usually crying about stander because...
1. They're the Bronco fan type: Too corporate to be amongst a pack of wolves and want to follow a certain set of guidelines (while taking away the college atmosphere).

2. The fat/lazy guy: The guy that is pissed that anyone is standing ever because his fat ass wants to sit the entire game.

If you saw the other side doing the same exact thing... wouldn't it be an indicator that the ENTIRE CROWD must've been pumped and rowdy but you wanted YOUR side to be the Bronco fan side?

The more you hold your tickets the more you are going to want to educate the new fans to the NFL that there is an advantage for the offense to be able to hear.

The Chiefs organization was very proud to display signs that we are the loudest stadium in the NFL (or something to that effect.)

That is when we are on D.

On O we sit, rest our pipes, drink and watch our current O sputter. Other years they prosper. We sat 1st down and sit again so we can sustain our drive.

Thats because your stadium is not the best (to put it lighlt it s***s)

When I get home I'll post some pics that are as good as CBS's. There are no bad sight lines in Arrowhead. A view was not an issue. As stated in the post it was the lower bowl between the 20's.

I was at the Indy game too. 102 is on the sunny side and I was in a PH jersey the whole game. In Jan. Crazy weather.

I sat during the O and yelled during the D. I always come home horse because I yell on every D play. It has nothing to do with being lazy. Everything to do with standing and yelling while we're on D.

What is your reason for standing while we're on O?

I was at a Raider game in Oakland vs. the Chiefs with Big Daddy and got my whole section to chant Ray - durrs in the 4th 1/4 with less than a minute to go while they were driving to win the game.

Usually because the people in front of us are. The trickle up effect.
I'd love to sit during O but if the people in front of us are standing I don't mind getting up instead of asking him to sit down.

I'd rather them enjoy their game as I used to come there every week.
Also, if it's one guy RIGHT in front of me... I would probably say something but if it's a pair of friends that are just taking it all in then... I'm all for it. Lets all stand.

You have never been to Arrowhead. When the anouncers call games they usually compliment Chiefs fans on their understanding of the game.

You have asked about the stand up thing a couple times so I'll explain it.

When people stand up they are more likely to yell. When you are on offense you don't want crowd noise.

I have been going to games for 31 years now.

Here's how the crescendo works... (there wasn't always a crescendo.)

1st and 10 while home team on D. People stand and yell.. The longer the distance and deeper the down count goes the louder the yells.

In the 1st 1/4 when the Minn O ran the ball down our throat the crowd became quiter.

Fans have even been known to do a tommahawk chop and beat on the back of seats.

I understand your confusion.

Your stadium was known as Arrowhead West until a couple of years ago. I was at the game when endeldt decided to go head to head with the grill of a drunk driver a few years back.

When there were more Chief fans than Charger fans at your stadium you probably dont know when to sit and stand.

If I want to stand I will stand, period. If Im in front of you and I want to stand YOU have 2 options, A) Stand or B) stay seated and STFU, this aint the Opera. The only exceptions to this rule are little kids and old women.

And no standing doesnt mean yelling while we're on Offense.

No, I'm in the lower level. I don't pay much attention to what goes on above me.

Name dropping?????

I have been going to Chiefs games when we sucked and were only on the radio. I actually worked those games selling Handerchiefs.

I still go. We still keep the tickets even though we are all in CA>

You know what really pisses me off?

I just spent I don't know how long writing a thread analyzing the Chiefs, and comparing them to putting together a puzzle (something I would never write here for fear of being laughed at for something that I don't mean to be funny). When I hit submit, there was some glitch, and it said the page couldn't be found. I hit refresh, but then the screen went white. Whenever I went back to the page where I would have written the post at, it was blank. BLANK! ARGH!!!!! :cuss:

Name dropping. Step 2 in the douchebag 101 course.

SP - What is your Chief story? I just laid my heart on the line.

Slow down, reread my posts, and come back with a decent reply.

I will read no further back than d******

I am a legit fan who has been going to games since I moved to KC.

I have met others CP people like BD, Logical, 2 Bike Mike, Adam, and a bunch of others who are not on the board any longer.

Don't doubt my fandome.

Also, it is bad taste to call names on a BB.

Are we gonna meet up and throw down?

I'll go but it would be very 7th grade.

Lets hear how much of a fan you are? How many losses did you sit through? How long did your family keep up the season tickets? When did your investment with the team start?

I would imagine that anyone that buys a ticket to any sporting event has a right to stand if they want to cheer on their team. We need less hall monitors. I understand the being quite on offense and loud on defense, but I've been to some Chiefs games and if I'm pumped up to watch the game and I wanna stand, that's just what I'll do.

I sit in front of some older people and they can not stand for the entire game. When I stand, I block their view.

Yesterday was bad for a couple reasons. Sec 102 Had way more Purple than it should have telling me that we had a big bunch of Season tick holders who had seen enough of Hermball.

We also had Chief fans who had scored those good seats from the usual season ticket holders. These are "stand when no one else is standing guy"; Spill beer on the Girlfriend/wife/sister sitting next to me when I scream "He should have had that!" guy; and
"this is my only game to ever go to so I got hammered in the parking lot on Old Mil Lite guy".

The ticket holder who owns the seat in front of me is gonna get an earfull from the old dude three seats down next gam for sure. Thank goodness the dilwad he sold to wont be back.

You're right. Forget the homefield advantage. Let's all stand up and yell while Huard is calling signals.

Who cares about McKinnie, Bowe, Parker...

This is ridiculous. I have been going to games for years and never bumped into anyone who agrees with staning and making noise when we have the ball.

No one is yelling while we are on offense. If they do it more than once I will say something to them. But standing to watch the offense? Not worth getting upset over.

Uh.... What?? Dude seriously go to bed.

Indy playoff game and I think Denver game last year (in the rain) we stood the entire game and the noise level was as if we were standing & sitting the entire game.

Early in the game the guy in front of me was standing when no one around was standing.

eeek..gasp.

Is there really a problem yelling at the offense? God forbid they get confused and actually throw the ball downfield by mistake.

I don't know why, but this thread reminds me of this from Kindergarten Cop:

Detective John Kimble: Emma, take your toy back to the carpet and sit down.
Emma: I'm not a policeman, I'm a princess!
Detective John Kimble: Take your toy back to the carpet!
Emma: [softly] I'm not policeman, I'm princess.
Detective John Kimble: TAKE IT BACK!
Emma: [miserable] All right.


Except instead of a policeman and a princess it is someone screaming that they are a real fan because they sold hankies to tailgaters or some such crap and that they are right that it is blasphemous to stand up while your team is on O.

I don't think it was limited to 102. The whole lower section was standing on O.

When at the game act like PH when he used score a TD...like you,ve been here before.

Also what was up with the 2 beach balls in the 1st 1/4?

Funny this has come up. On what wound-up being the game winning drive, I thought it came across on TV as insanely loud. But I just attributed it to the TV broadcast, Fox, whatever. No way Arrowhead was loud on the most important offensive drive of the game!

Apparently, there's a whole new generation of people that don't know about the sitting/standing rule. Now, I feel old. There were even references in Hard Knocks about how the Arrowhead crowd is some of the most intelligent, know when to be loud, and when to be quiet. So much for that...

If that was the point after the time out, a couple of sections in the upper deck were trying to get the wave started while the TO was in but the chiefs were on offense. Luckily they came to there senses and quit it after the play was over. :shake:

I don't remember it getting loud on that drive until people noticed Bowe going long. Once the ball was in the air, the noise level went up.
