I'm sure no one cares about my 2 cents, but here goes. Arguments like these are why people say that UM has the lamest fans in the country, or why the Big House is the quietest 100,000 people in the country. Chances are if you're sitting down, you're also not cheering, or not cheering as loudly. I physically cannot make my voice go as loudly sitting down as it needs to be to cheer on Michigan football.
This is not tennis or golf. This is football. Fans at football games are a little rowdy, they are loud, and they are on their feet. If you don't want to be on your feet, stay at home or buy a box. I don't care if you've had season tickets since the Lincoln administration. This is the nature of the sport.
There are a lot of great things about Michigan football. Unfortunately, the fan atmosphere is not one of them, and everytime I hear someone complain that they want fewer people standing up, I cry for a little bit.
