I suggest we tell the ticket people not to let people through with flags

You're too young and brown to be a cranky old white guy.

He meant letting people OUT with flags.

I spoke with a couple of the security guys personally. They agreed to help. One of them did stop 1 or 2 people with flags.

It's understandable if people don't know any better and just kinda wander off with them not know what to do. It's not okay when someone is told that they can't take a flag home and they try to argue that it's theirs.

Look, people on these boards aren't the problem, I saw a few of you actually help try to get them back. I appreciate that. I'll be doing my spiel every game and I'll see what we can do about having people at the top of the stairs, but I do need your help.



Finally, for our resident cranky old white guys who don't like to stand in mud or hold flags -- We're literally holding the flags up for 2 mins.

We hold up all 47 flags (which represent the 47 non-racist United States) as the team comes out. Flags go down, set them on the BENCHES not on the floor. Beers come up. That's it. Literally. It looks bitchin' as hell, and it takes less effort than it does for you to sneak into the front 3 rows of 138 5 mins into the game.

You can wave a flag around if you've still got it during a goal, but we are the cranky white supporters group so waving them around during play is usually not cool.

i suggest having 3 people on top of 138/137 at the end of every game.

Good idea, you volunteering?

Not a bad idea, but not their job. We need to handle this ourselves.

So, the protocol for flag waving is:

1.) When the teams come out

2.) If a goal is scored (optional)

It might be a good idea to relay this to any individual who agrees to take and wave a flag...

If you're not creepin', you're not trying...

Did we lose any flags Sunday? It seemed like we did a good job of tracking them down.

Yes, but...

Lastly, try not to bitch too much about flags. They look great, especially with the numbers we will have. If you don't want a flag waived in front of you, move toward the top or bottom of a section. If that's too much to ask, I don't know what to tell you other than I don't want to hear it.

I admire your determination to make 47 flags work out somehow with a group that seems to hate them just a bit more than Osama bin Laden.
