Okay,got a question about a type of fan i see often in Death


Posted: Dec 17, 2013 7:40 AM
 

Valley and was wondering if Tnet had a slang term we use to describe them.
He usually wears blue jeans and just a small glimpse of what team he pulling for,He stands the entire game with his arms crossed with a frustrated,disgusted or maybe just has to lay a deuce but does not want to walk to the restroom look on his face.Not a hint of a cheer,nor even a fist-pump or even a smile when we go up 30 points.Two minutes left in the game we push for a first and are able to to kneel the ball to end the game.Just then he high fives his partner(many times they are in pairs)and shows a small smile and some appreciation that his Tigers came through.


I see they guys and tell them to yell or sit the F down.

Are these the noted Downers I hear of on Tnet? I can certainly picture many on here acting n this same manner.

It's time to man up now and show hands or change your ways and become All In.

to sit his ### down in them then....it's a privilege to get air time,for fans that want to stand and cheer for their team.

I agree I usually carry a pack of ball bearings into the game with me. I have gotten pretty good at hitting standers in the back of the head about 50% of the time I might his a child but it is worth it to get the losers to sit down.

Constantly standing and waving his arms for everyone to get up and make noise, but never makes a sound.

Or the guy who is constantly asking you to sit down.

Or the one who looks you with a puzzled face when you make noise on 1st down.



I gotta get out of the upper deck. Totally different kind of fan up high.


LOL seen those guys as well,but the folded arms guy just

kill me most.


Really? Sat in the North Upper for the BC game this year

and especially in the second half it got really loud and EVERYONE up there was definitely into the game. I guess it depends though... sat in nearly the same spot for the GT game and the people up there weren't nearly as loud or fired up.

GO TIGERS


I don't know about a term but this is a guy that's "playing"

coach in his own mind. He is too busy concentrating on the game to do anything else and he must stand so he can survey the field like any "general" would do. He can only show emotions when the "battle" is over and then he can relax and enjoy the fruits of his labor. Let's call him an idiot or a fool or how about a jester.


LOL, I've been attending games.....

in the Valley for 50 years and not once, not the first time, have I or anyone that I was sitting with ever been told to stand up, sit down, stand the F up, sit the F down, or any of the things that I read on this board. Where ARE all of these internet tough guys?? TIA

Funny, but I don't see much, if any, of that, and I've been coming religiously for over 25 years. My guess is those seats are corporate seats, and they are given to folks who really don't have allegiance or even attend out of curiosity or to say they went. Glad I don't sit near you. I probably could hunt and find somebody like that, but why waste time looking for that.

I paid for my ticket the same as anyone else....

...so if it's alright with you, I'll just go ahead and enjoy the game the way I want to, thanks.

Yes, I wear jeans (or shorts when it's hot) instead of orange overalls. Yes, I wear a fairly nondescript Clemson T-shirt or hat. No, I'm not terribly demonstrative...at home, work, or at the game. I sometimes fold my arms when I stand or sit. That's not to say I don't cheer at all, but I'm not going to react much to a three yard run or 2 yard swing pass.

On the plus side, I only stand up when most others are standing in front of me, I don't use foul language, and I don't Woo-Hoo. So hopefully you, the ultimate arbiter of who is and who is not a true Clemson fan, will find it in your heart to allow me to continue to come to the games.


I sit in upper deck west zone

On the home side, don't see a whole lot of this. Most our people have IPTAY seats and renew them every year.
