Seems like old trafford will have a dedicated 'standing' and singing section. Not quite terraces, but laxer enforcement of the required sitting rule like the SW.

If they start singing in spanish, I'm done.

If that happened, I would love Man U. Nothing beats the avalanche. Fuck seats.

Wouldn't want to be at the front end of it.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

If we ever played at a stadium without seats and had a few hundred people or more... I pray that we score a goal. Would be a landmark moment for a MLS side to avalanche.

Avalanche.

After the goal against Algeria, a couple of USA fans got trampled in the mosh. One left the stadium on a backboard & spent the rest of her trip wearing a neck brace. :ph34r:

No one said avalanching or moshing is for "fans". The problem is too many "fans" want to be near the action without actually fully participating in it.

So, you define "participation" as avalanching and moshing?

They are forms of participation, certainly not all.

Everyone has their own style, some people prefer to be more rowdy than others.

This is true. I think we all want everyone in the section to have fun. But that doesn't give people a license to do whatever they want.

Some like to mosh, avalanche, etc. But the people who get trampled in the wake or have someone fall on top of them from one or two rows back don't necessarily appreciate it. And that doesn't mean they are just 'casual fans'.

That wasn't the purpose of my post, but tough to get that across on a message board.

I was trying to point out that there is in fact a lot of "fans" in the SW. Part of that has to do with how the section is open for random people to buy tickets to. Other part of that is people bringing their girlfriends, wives, husbands, cousins, boyfriend's mother, etc.

Fair enough. Didn't mean to single you out in particular.

Yeah, it sucks that there are a lot of tourists. And they seem to find their way into the heart of the section. The trick is to try to get some of them to join in and stick around. Hell, I stood next to a grandmother last year and got her to do Wipeout with us.
