Dude, it's perfectly understandable to stand when you're cheering on the defense on a crucial play, but to stand for most of the game? I can understand people around you getting sick of you having your butt in their face the entire time. Sit your happy ass down and have another hot dog!

The Jacksonville game was in 2006

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

Every defensive play is crucial.

Go back to the Giants and Dallas games in '05. I guarantee those games were louder than any RFK game.
I attended that Giants game in 2005 which was loud, but nowhere near as loud as the Giants game in '87, which I also attended, when the Skins came back from a 13 point halftime deficit to win. It was so loud when the Giants offense was on the field that I could not hear my brother shouting in my ear right next to me, and my ears were still ringing two days later. My hearing wasn't temporarily impaired after the great win in '05. All that said, yesterday's noise after RG3's signature TD run was as loud as I've ever heard FedEx on TV.

My point isn't to argue what plays are crucial or not, my point is to say that the people behind you paid good money for their tickets just like you did, and should be given the opportunity to enjoy the game as comfortable as possible. I understand you feel most comfortable standing and cheering the team on, and don't get me wrong, I appreciate fans like you who will get up and cheer loud and proud for our team. And thank goodness that now you have the ability to do so, without fear of getting ejected, by purchasing standing room only "seats" and standing until your heart's content.

But, you need to be cognoscente of the fact that since these people did pay to attend the game as well, they should be given the opportunity to sit and watch the game without an obstructed view from fans who refuse to sit. Sure, it's not an opera or a night out at the movies, but it's still a costly form of entertainment that all who attend should be able to sit and watch the game as comfortable as what the stadium provides, so that their experience will be enjoyable enough for the fans to want to come back for future games. It's a business, cpayne. And while you'll argue that you should have as much right to stand the entire game and watch it, I hate to tell you, but you really don't have that privilege unless you purchase standing room tickets. Nine times out of ten, the sitters will always win, because they are utilizing a service (the seats) that is advertised as part of the "Redskins experience." And, if there are fans who are not allowing fans behind them to utilize this service, then those standing fans are being obstructive.

I'm in no way saying fans should never stand and cheer - as I'm sure that's probably all you'll get out of this post. I'm just saying to be a little more aware of your surroundings. If people around you, especially behind you, are not standing as much as you are, then show some humility and respect and be willing to sit so they can watch the game. Likewise, if you're "sitting" in a section where people are more likely to stand and enjoy the game, then you know you can do so as well. I'm sure in the future it will be a non-issue as you'll have the option to by standing tickets, and the Redskins will start winning on more of a regular basis so that people won't be as uptight over the seats and be more excited with the game.
