i see the yellow and blue shirts calling people down from the bench part of the barricade pretty consistently. If i use it the way i described earlier, i get waved down pretty quickly (but i'm also down pretty fast). If some douch bag is lounging there, yeah that's an issue; but if it's fast and relegated to the first 3 songs, you have as much to compain about as anyone walking in front of you.
I push Neil Diamond down. Always.
Neil Diamond just goes down. You dont have to push him.
