I'm happy we waved them for the full 90. We don't do that every game, for this opportunity I think it was the right decision to provide atmosphere for the new fans watching from around the entire stadium.
Pfutz and I chatted about this after the game and I'm more on your side Pecochran. I understand the argument that craploads of flags is a good thing. On the other hand, my fandom is not just about atmosphere. I love the game. There are many things that we need to figure out as a way of negotiating how to have the Dark Clouds (TM) atmosphere and at the same time not make things suck.
