There were 88,000 people in that stadium. Why were they not asked to sit also? We didn’t see the Aggies sitting down. We were not drinking (the beer was too expensive) and we were not shouting profanities. We were cheering for our team.
We left our section, with the security guard, and yes, we were not happy and were verbalizing our disgust of the situation. We were then confronted by six Arlington police officers.
Meaghan is a producer and host for a TV affiliate. The security guards and police officers, and the “fan,” didn’t like her relevant journalistic questions regarding the situation at hand. My son-in-law was removed from the stadium. He was removed because the woman sitting in the seat behind him “couldn’t see.”
I asked this woman later why she didn’t stand up, and her remark was “I didn’t want to.”
I am sad, appalled, disgusted and sickened by the behavior of this female “fan.” We, as a section, were standing, yelling, cheering and supporting our Sooners. Those boys were on that field working as hard as they could, doing the best they could, giving it all they had, and yet this “fan” had the nerve to call security and have a young man thrown out because he was standing and cheering and she couldn’t see.
My advice to this “fan” and any other “fan” who wants to sit and quietly remark “Go Sooners” should stay at home from now on. We need standers and yellers and cheerers. Just like we see on the big screen, during home games: “Make Some Noise.”
Sooner football players and coaches, I am apologizing for that woman’s behavior. Shame on her. You deserve better fans than that.
We will continue to support you and your efforts and will continue to stand, cheer and be proud that we support Sooner football. Maybe it wasn’t a perfect season, but only a select few are. Co-Big 12 Champions and a 10-3 season is something to be proud of.
Thank you for an enjoyable season. Good luck, and we will see you at the spring game.
