Now the team only gets the fans they deserve.
The people in the row in front of us complained that we were clapping and cheering too loudly.
Some Seattle fans are pathetic and should just stay home and watch on television.
I was born and raised here but cannot believe the fans in this city.. Not just for sports, but if you go to a concert it's the same thing. We have a great live music scene but the crowds just stand and bob their heads.
Also, I spent an entire game yelling at Chone Figgins two seasons ago, about two rows back from where he used to play for the Angels at third base. Ironic, now, but still...
One of my favorite moments at Safeco was joining in with the entire section behind the left field manual scoreboard, in yelling to Rickey Henderson until he finally turned and tipped his cap to us, in 2000.
As for Cubs fans, most are too fat and/or drunk to stand up anyhow.
if you put half as much effort into cheering as you do into bitching maybe your teams would do better
Also, alcohol enforcement at Safeco is ridiculous. I was at one of the St. Louis games the other week with some friends after we decided to get some cheap centerfield seats. While seated with beers in hand, our IDs were checked multiple times by different staff members and a friend who doesn't drink had his motherfucking Pepsi smell-checked TWICE. Whoever's making these calls at the organizational level should be run the fuck out of town by an angry promotional-giveaway-bat-wielding crowd.
I've never been to a Sounders game where everyone wasn't standing throuout play (even when it's bad). Where the heck were you sitting?
I used to love going to see the Mariners, at Safeco, win or lose, but now I am just tired of it. Tired of the loud obnoxious commercials playing out on the Jumbotron in between innings, tired of the canned exhortations to "get loud!" Tired of these ridiculous and shortsighted conduct rules. And yes, tired of the losing.
* With the possible exception of the fans who rushed the Kingdome field at the end of that Angels/Ms sudden death playoff game at the end of the 95 season, that started tearing up the turf. Those guys were probably removed or even arrested.
