Pretty much. My dad told me about all the **** that went on (got his seasons in I believe 83) and none of that would be tolerated nowadays. I even talked to a guy in Jersey when on the ten dollar ticket line about the blue seats back in the 70's and he told me a visiting fan was warned about cheering for his team and if he did it again he'd be thrown off the balcony. Well the team scored and I guess you could figure out what happened...

Basically you really can't compare the two era's.
