I shoot High school football games from the stands and concerts from way up in the cheap seats. All are hand held with basic OE adjustable strap under my left arm then around my neck. With pratice it gives you a form of 3 point stabilisation. You can switch hands to conquer fatigue. If you are lucky enough to be seated with clear sight-line from knee level, balance cam on knee and use vari-angle LCD screen to keep everything in frame. Here are examples of football game and last row balcony of Beacon theater with Canon SX 40 superzoom camera with 24 to 840mm fixed lens bought on E-Bay for $175. Shot with nothing more than what I was born with and basic camera strap.
