    I felt embarrassed for the players on the field yesterday. They kept trying to get the crowd loud, and the section I was in NEVER stood up, or even CLAPPED. It was an absolute joke, and fans looked at me like I was an idiot. We're 4-0, not the other way around.

    If you have season tickets, please take it upon yourself to get your section LOUD from now on. It should be easy for the next home game on Monday Night, but we need this through the rest of the year.

    Also, if there are open seats next to you, ask around who they are, and get their tickets for games they aren't going to. We need every seat filled and EVERYONE standing the ENTIRE game, or at least when we're on defense.

    It could be the difference in hosting a playoff game, or going on the road. Every game is huge. Every possession is huge. Every PLAY is huge. And the louder we are, the HARDER it is for the opposing offense.

    WHICH SECTION are you (and/or your friends) responsible for?

    It used to be louder back in the day, no doubt. I believe we did force them to burn a couple of timeouts, though.

    I was up in 316 yesterday. There were a ton of empty seats in my section. I dont know if people were just moving down after they found closer seats or what. There looked to be a ton of empty seats all around the stadium that just never got filled. Scalpers?

    I have to give it up for the endzones. Watching on tv yesterday, they weren't 100% full, but they got on their feet and made some noise when it was necessary.

    I'm in the South Endzone and we were rocking yesterday!! We were VERY loud and I do believe that FER-ROT was affected by it.

    some LP fans just don't get it. I'm not one of them... Really though, that was a better showing by the 12th man than I've seen in the past...

    But good Lord... Chicago fans are intense. I was watching that elbow to elbow crowd on TV last night... LP fans should be that way... and I hate the way the pr/scoreboard people try to act like we are... you know that "People's Court" bit... we're not who they say we are.

    I was in San Diego last week for MNF, and we did not sit down the entire game. The ENTIRE stadium was full, and the only people sitting were children and the elderly from time to time.

    Run up and down the aisles if you need to, do whatever it takes to get the crowd going again. It makes the experience funner and more intense for everyone - they will be glad you did it when the ENTIRE LP Field is up and watching, cheering, yelling on every down.

    I don't want to sound ungrateful, but at times I can't stand our fans. When we're losing, the stands are near empty. I will never forget the Giants game where a great majority of the fans left and then we came back in the 4th quarter. If you are a football fan and support the players, then it's like a marriage, through the good and the bad. Yes, it's painful to watch your team getting beat game after game, but a fan is there to give support.

    I wish I had a flame thrower to shoot the fans who do the mass exit at the start of the 4th quarter or anytime before the game actually ends. I sit in a place where expressive cheering is frowned upon and I still do it anyway!

    It was as loud in our section as I can remember for the last few seasons. But the fans stay seated except for third down. It's on the sunny side and was too hot for a lot stay standing.

    There will be little problem getting fans going for the next home game.

    I'm in the North Endzone and i can tell you the North endzone did it's job.
    We we're rocking down there.

    When it's hot like it was yesterday a lot of fans don't want to make the effort sometimes. So I jump up and down and yell "GET UP AND GET LOUD COME ON!!!!"
    I just keep jumping and yelling it eventually EVERYONE around gets up and yells.

    We started the DEFENSE DEFENSE chant right before the final interception.
    You could visably see it's effect on the Titans players they got excited!
