Can someone please explain why ushers do not allow fans to go to their seats as they please. No other park does this, and it's ridiculously stupid.

Itís so you donít get smacked by a foul ball because you arenít paying attention to the game while walking down the stairs.

It's more than that. Staying in your seat and out of the aisles during an at-bat is old-school baseball etiquette. Most ushers won't enforce it, but there are a handful who will.

Every usher I've encountered at every game at Coors does. Do they issue partial refunds for the time spent waiting in line not being able to watch the game from the seat you purchased?

I had to explain what was happening to several visiting fans who had also never experienced such a thing.

Of course they do. Just track down the Monfort brothers and theyíll be more than happy to help you out.

Because when you walk to your seat it's a distraction and you block other's view. Like someone said, it's baseball etiquette to walk to/from your seat during the beginning, middle, end of innings or a break in play for pitcher changes/warm ups.

I think it is awesome. They let you go once the at bat is finished. The rest of the parks should follow suit. I don't want somebody obstructing my view in the middle of an at bat. I don't find it a convenience at all. You can actually watch the at bat on the TV above the aisle you are waiting to enter. They do it at the Avalanche games too. They wait until play has stopped.

The only ridiculously stupid thing is the sense of entitlement that makes someone think it's fine to interrupt other people's viewing for their own convenience.

Sorry, but no sympathy here.
