Reid Collins’s piece on boorish sports crowds managed to get Spectator readers all riled up. In today’s Reader Mail, one writer calls Collins’s point of view “totalitarian” and another advises, “Someone tell Mr. Collins that the little girls’ room is just down the hall.” A more polite correspondent tries to put things in historical perspective by reminding that sports fans have rarely been angels. One thing missing from the conversation is local knowledge. Collins wrote that the current Seattle football stadium was designed to funnel noise down to the field, making it extra loud. But if this structure is louder than the old Kingdome, I would be shocked.
