"The increased attendance at football games has created safety concerns for the School Board member," said Mooseville High Principal, Addy Ministrator.
The change took place just in time for Thursday night's game, and among the thirty-five people who packed the field to see the Mooseville Bees battle the Jackalope Bulldogs the reactions about the new seating arrangements were mixed.
One spectator, Joe Grandpa said the new seats brought back an "old school comfort," but Sue Burbs said her butt went numb before kick-off.
For now, fans will have to make do with the new seating arrangement.
"Safety is our top concern," Ministrator said. "A pinched finger here or a soar backside there are a small prices to pay to prevent something more disastrous from happening. We're being proactive here."
When asked if there were any plans to make the fans more comfortable, Ministrator said that Moosecraft had offered to donate seat cushions.
"They can only make about a dozen before next Thursday's game, so we're going to raffle those off to raise money for the rest."
