Stand up, take off your hat, hand on the heart and shut your mouth until it's over. If the singer flubs it...boo them afterward (you deserve it if you don't know the words), but respect the song.

Too many adults behave like children in today's society.
This.

Seriously. It happens at like every game I go to and it's just annoying. I mean what purpose does it serve? Just stand there and be silent, or sing the words along quietly, but be respectful.

On a side note even though Ne-Yo was taking a lot of shit for doing the National Anthem, I really enjoyed it. He didn't try to put his own personal touch on it, he sung it the way it was meant to be sung, and it sounded way better than when Jordan Sparks did it at the GB-NO game.

Re: Cowboys fan tases fans at Met Life Stadium

Although I understand the respect and acting mature bit, but if someone else is being loud or not standing up it should not automatically lead to confrontation.

Just as one should be grown-up and take a moment of silence their counterpart should also be mature enough to ask them kindly to adhere if they are not compliant. Complain to stadium officials if the individual continues to be loud. This one can go both ways. The Marine is not 100 percent in the right on this one, IMO.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way justifying the user of any weapon at stadium or in general.

Re: Cowboys fan tases fans at Met Life Stadium

Pops was wrong for being disrespectful of the moment of silence and the playing of taps. [You don't want to stand for the anthem fine, sit quietly and read a book or check your e-mail but don't disrupt others as they share a moment of socially sanctioned community - the majority has rights too. Further, you want to be respected for your choice to not participate, then respect the choice of others that wish to participate - there is room for both.]

The Marine was wrong by venting his anger at Pop's disruptive words/actions through an act of physical confrontation.

Pop's stepped way over the line of wrong by pulling out the Taser.

Just a case of two wrongs don't make a right with the added "I'm a hypocritcal idiot" factor thrown in.

And this is the attitude that has led to people 'believeing' they have the right to be a horses ass in public.

Anyone else on here remember a time (as a child) when if you publicly ****ed up you'd get swatted by the nearest responsible adult then doubled down on when you got home? I don't recall too many kids dying from that, do you? Well, now the generations of 'No Spanking' kids are middle-aged (like me) and have the same level of respect for others who don't share their viewpoint.

If you don't want to acknowledge the anthem or similar, don't be around it when it starts, go to the bathroom or stay home.

Since public administering of discipline became 'wrong' when the hippies took over we've seen a decline in polite behavior. I'm sure someone will have a contrary opinion, let's hear it.

Re: Cowboys fan tases fans at Met Life Stadium

I would agree that not standing during the anthem, or wearing a visiting team's jersey, should not serve as automatic confrontation triggers. But the sum total of this guy's approach--wearing a Cowboy's jersey to the Jets game, not being quiet during the Anthem on a day in which he and anyone with an ounce of intelligence knew there would extra sensitivity attached to it, and, to boot, bringing a stun gun along with him--seems to show that he went to the game looking for a little trouble, possibly a lot of it. A deliberate attempt to goad other people can't be disguised as a principled expression of a political or religious belief.

After I said "WHO? Oh yeah, he was on the Fresh Beat Band show...", I thought he did a great job. The best renditions are those that are not embellished and are sung simply and properly. He had a good voice too.

Christina AAAAAHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGUUUUU-UUU-UUUU-LLLLLLLIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH-RARARARARARARAAAAAAAA is an example of the worst possible kind of singer.

Re: Cowboys fan tases fans at Met Life Stadium

I gotta believe he brought that taser because he was knew he was going to wear his colors to hostile territory. If he was wearing neutral colors he prolly would have been treated differently.
I learned my lesson on that when I wore my Redskins coat to a Bears game at Soldier Field.
I almost got thrown off a pedestrian bridge.

At this stage in the game, why even bother going to an opponents stadium to see your team. Not even worth it imo.

I would depending on the opponent. I've only been to fedex field, and I would welcome the opportunity to see other NFL stadiums. I've considered getting tickets to a skins game when they play the panthers, but the opportunity hasn't arisen yet. I'd prob do Baltimore for a game too if the timing was right.
