"Typical Morehead!"..................and he didn't even mean that as a compliment..
My vantage point is a little different since I sit in the upper tier and the seating angle is steeper. When someone stands in front of me, I can usually stay seated and lean to the left or right and see just fine. What irks me is that someone will stand up while for 5 rows in front, everyone is seated. So they are not standing up because their view is blocked. I don't say anything....except if its an opposing team's fan. Last week, there was an obnoxious Cowboys fan. He was up constantly, getting in everyone's face, even when Zeke lost yardage. He even started his BS saying that the Cowboys had more championships than us. I had to correct him and remind him that he can not discount the 4 NFL titles before the Super Bowls. I'm 43 and an old school fan. I behave like an old school season ticket holder, but understand that there is a new style fan coming to games now, and just adjust. Sometimes, if it gets too much, I'll say to them, scoot down a little. Cheer, make noise, go bat-**** for the Giants, I don't care. Just be mindful of people behind you. That's all. It really depends on the fan. A lot of old school fans just yell "sit down" in their raspy voice. But if you're cool with the other fan, they are more apt to be cool back.
And yes, going to a game can be very scary for me. Would never, ever go alone. I think I told you about my first NFL game. Eagles v. Vikings (I think). My dad had to take us out of there before the opening kick off because we were having beers and wet towls and toilet paper being throw on us because I wore my Giants winter coat to the game. Dad took us to security and they said it was his fault that was happening because of what he let me wear and they could do anything about it. So we left, I was 11 or 12 at the time.
