    Same here. We used to like to watch from out there -- and talk to Joe the usher -- before it was overtaken by pajama- and cape-wearing superfans.

    I just can't waste my time studying all sides of this issue so that I can come down on one side or the other here. But I do know that I don't find it endearing when someone feels the need to call themselves, "The Number One Fan".

    Part of me wants to think that this "diversion" was used as way to put a yellow line out there... They're everywhere else. No doubt there were complaints ( from Reds fans) but to use the Cards fans complaints is pretty lame, IMHO. As I put on Twitter, if I go to Busch and the Cards fans start saying nasty things about the Reds, can I complain?

    If "whiney birds" was enough to make them cry, those Cards fans must have never sat in the bleachers at Wrigley, where obscene comments about your parentage are par for the course.

    That being said, dressing crazy and declaring yourself the #1 fan makes you seem like a big tool. I'm sure there's some grandma out there who hasn't missed a Reds game in 70 years who has you beat. Rather than take one's cues from NFL fans and act like an idiot, why not follow the better soccer fans and come up with some creative cheers and songs that will get other fans into the spirit. Someone should fly him out to a Portland Timbers game to see how it's done.

    Have you seen the referenced Portland Timbers at home on television? The atmosphere is incredible, the fans are into in and loud the entire game. The baseball equivalent would be a playoff type crowd every game. Or every inning is a crowd like the last few of Bailey's No-No.

    There is quite a difference between the soccer crowd in a place like Portland than a developing country or a lot of the European areas that still have quite the racism issue.

    The average attendance at an MLS game is rought 12,000 less than an MLB game.

    I'm good.

    I noticed the yellow line during the Pads series when I went over to the CF zone for a few minutes and couldn't remember them being there before. Along with an usher playing Soup-Nazi to anyone that got close. So this story solves the mystery.

    Memories of the old ushers with bugs up their butt from the Riverfront Stadium days.

    Re: Reds Superfan Chuck Dee Trouble at GABP?

    Funny, the memories I have of the elderly ushers were them welcoming me and my family to come sit in better seats during an extra inning game. They even wiped off the seats and thanked us for sticking around. It was the Griffey bobblehead game that went 14 innings.

    I tipped them both a few bucks, and they even sent a few vendors down our way to sell us hot dogs and soda. Those old fellows are great.

    On the other hand, I've never worn a wig, painted my face, or started ridiculous chants to get attention like this guy. Superfans and baseball don't mix in my book. Let the NFL have those clowns. There used to be a time when a man wore a suit and tie to the ballpark. I'm not saying it should be that way, but keep the game civilized.
