    Us cow collegers got common sense.

    Rotten cabbage, tomatoes.

    Brings back memories. Did that at quite a few gigs in London in the late 80s & early 90s. On one or two occasions things were a bit too lively for my liking and I spent most of the first song moving away from the stage.

    Also one of the few bands to have emerged since 2000 that I'd really like to see.

    I don't think I've ever stood through a sports event. Heck, I don't even like bench seating--seats without backs. The new Hayward will be a much more comfortable place for me to sit and watch a track meet. You won't find me in the standing section.
    I see... it's alright for the little people to have to stand..."I have a seat!" Out of my way you peasant!

    Perhaps the New Hayward should be designed like the Globe Theatre in London....covered seating...with groundlings standing in the sun and rain...for entertainment between events the toffs in the seats could throw things at the groundlings...peanuts, perhaps...

    Coaches tend to stand for most of regular meets, and I have done my share of 8-10 hour days that way. I certainly wouldn't want to do so if I was just spectating!
