DoYouSeeWhatHappensLarry Posted September 11, 2010 Share Posted September 11, 2010 In light of the Saints and Vikings showing the players unity in regards to the current labor situation, a very respectable poster on the Bills Message Board posted this idea:"This would take some planning but I know there are people on this board that like to organize things. Anyway, we all saw the players last night showing solidarity before the kickoff. Personally, fine. Good for them. I just wish we, the fans, could do something to show out solidarity and let the powers that are the NFL know that there would be no pro sports without us fans.Here is my proposal:In weeks 8, 9 and 10 of the NFL season, (gives time to organize this) fans in every NFL stadium stand before the opening kickoff and turn their back to the field and remain silent.Just for one play. That's all...just the opening kickoff. I think it would send a strong message...especially in todays economic climate.Just remind the million and billion-heirs that without the fan, there is no billions to argue over.Anyone think this is a good or bad idea?If good...how do we run with this?"Personally, I think this is a great idea. It is likely too ambitious and I don't know what effect it would have but at the very least I would think it would raise awareness. I would prefer not to lose a football season because millionaires and billionaires are in a disagreement. Not only do I love football, but the implications of losing a season with this specific Falcons regime should make everyone uncomfortable. In our efforts to build a consistently competitive team, it seems that we've entered our window, so losing a year of that seems like a losing proposition for Falcons fans.I told the poster who came up with the idea that I would post it here. So I'm doing so. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
