    Fulham's awful Michael Jackson statue is very Al Fayed

    Fans of Fulham FC who may feel disconcerted by a statue of Michael Jackson placed near their home stands at the behest of club chairman Mohamed Al Fayed need only visit his former empire in nearby Knightsbridge to see where his taste in art is coming from. © Guardian
    Did I set the subjects and verbs off in bold correctly?

    It's funny how many people find it offending. I think it looks pretty much like Michael Jackson, "all things golden and glitzy" included.

    Thanks.
    Then what is the definition of home stand? I've found one as "a series of baseball games played at a team's home field ©". Nevertheless, the voice within me says it is not so (here), because home stand must be a place but not a series of games... if I understood rightly the sense of the sentence, of cause ))
    Thanks for correcting me.

    stands - The bleachers at a playing field or stadium.
    "Home stands" basically means their home field or stadium.
