Annoying Hockey Fans Waving at the Cameras

Watching the NHL playoffs, and really any regular season game, I notice a handful of people who think it’s awesome to stand up in front of the camera in the middle of the game. The like to wave and jump around and are usually on their cell phone talking to their buddy: “Can you see me now?”.

The ushers at the hockey games do a good job prohibiting people from returning to their seats until there is a stoppage in play. This is a courtesy to both the patrons attending the game and the viewers at home as the progression of people up the stairs usually interferes with the camera views.

I think the ushers should make an example of these idiots who continually standing/waving/jumping around. Yes, they are distracting the viewers at home and blocking views of the game, but they are also annoying the people around them.

Kick them out. Set the example with a few and the problem will go away. Just like everyone respects standing at the section entrance until a stoppage in play – setting the rule in place now will make it common courtesy in the future.
