No standing at Chiefs games

This can't be true. If it is it's a sad sad day at Arrowhead stadium.

Fans are asked to treat Chiefs games like bowling matches - Shutdown Corner... - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

No standing at Chiefs games? | Over the Top

Excellent, I hope their next step is to ban yelling/screaming/being loud and institute a "golf clap" policy so we can all behave like civilized people.

That's funny because all you ever here is how Arrowhead is the closest thing in the NFL to a college atmosphere.

Re: No standing at Chiefs games

This sounds like one of those unenforced rules only to be used when faced with an extreme situation so they can fairly say "This is the rule".

That is what we got here. If there is no rule, they cant say anything to drunks who stand up the whole game when everyone else in the section is sitting down. Sometimes people do sit, and sometimes there are guys that don't have any manners or respect that have to be dealt with.

Re: No standing at Chiefs games

GoSkins -- If you want to sit down, watch the game at home. My job while Im there is to stand up and cheer for my defense. I'll stand up all game if the section is doing it, or Ill sit down for offense. Obviously there are exceptions to the rule, blocking the view of a child/handicapped/etc, I'll sit down without a word, but if you can stand and don't want to, stay home. Football is supposed to be fun for the fans.

I agree 110%.

Stay home and quit your bitchin'

It's a football game for crying out loud.

Re: No standing at Chiefs games

You shouldnt be able to tattle taling via tex messages unless you can get a beer or nachos via text messaging too. I too wish standing while the defense was on the field was the norm.

Somthing ive allways like about Quest Field is:

In addition, the north end zone seating, called the "Hawks Nest", was specifically designed for rowdy fans; the seating consists of metal bleachers which reflect sound, and fans often stomp to create even more.

Qwest Field - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ive heard these seats are really cheap too, and since theyre bleachers i would think everyone stands the whole time. If we ever put a stadium back in DC I really hope Danny looks into this. IMO its the next best thing to having Home and Visitor seating. Maybe our section could be called Wigwam or Tipi seating!

Those seats need to be cheap...the drunks will destroy them.

I'm confused by how standing up makes you louder somehow. If there was a 'no yelling rule' obviously that would decrease volume, but you can make the same noise sitting or standing.

The point is that if you want to sit down and enjoy the game w/o making noise or really cheering, than stay at home.

Re: No standing at Chiefs games

The more expensive the tickets get the more quiet the fans get. The people that go to games now are white collar people who are louder bitching at you to sit then they are cheering for the defense.

I also like the idea of Quest where they have a special section for rowdy fans. I think half of Fed Ex should be like this.

I thought that all of FedEx was for rowdy fans.
