traffic home was the most brutal i've ever experienced. i spent an hour after the game tracking down a lost, drunk friend around uptown charlotte, sat on 85 for an hour, took another hour detour to eat waffle house (a mistake, oof) and jumped back onto the interstate only to find it just as locked up three hours after the game as it had been after the final whistle.

End of the thanksgiving holiday traffic. Few years ago, trying to get home to Raleigh, sat on 85 for 6 hrs of stop and go. Miserable. Swore than I would stay overnight or take the train than deal with that again.

Not true.  The wave the crowds were doing at the US Open during Jimmy Conners' matches the year that he went on that run at age 40 was awesome.  ( they recently did a 30/30 thing on that US Open)
Mainly because it was tennis and those crowds are usually so boring.

I agree. The "Wave", was a bored tennis crowds way of getting excited. Then it caught on at College Football games. Then it became a fad. Then it died. Or thought to be dead, as it is only heresay that says it truly exists anymore.

What about 60% of the fans leaving midway through the 4th quarter? Pretty disappointing


This drives me crazy more than the Wave does. 


I have kids and when we go to the game the wave is fun, it shows fan unity.  I don't really have an issue with it.  I guess many years of multi-tasking.  I can watch the game and still hop up and let my kids have a little fun.  It last three or four trips around the stadium.  No big deal.


People leaving early that drives me crazy.  I realize an ass-whooping either taking or giving gets boring after a while but leaving when we are a down 10 points.  It isn't over.   I have NEVER left a game until the clock shows 0:00.

Not really,a whole section was trying to get the wave started in the 4th quarter when our offense was still on the field,this fan base has a ways to go and is not even close to resembling the SeaHawk fanbase(what a fanbase should envy)!
