    I say charge 20 bucks at the gate into Cajun Field. If it fills up, well RCAF members yíall should of came earlier.

    They are rows and rows of empty parking inside Cajun Field that are never used each game.

    There should be a way have those spots available if people are not going to use them
    I pay a pretty good premium over my season tickets for reserved parking. I expect that I will have a place to park in my lot as I pay for that privilege. If you want to drive RCAF to zero mistreat the people who help pay the bills

    Let All students get in free with a school shirt on. You could add thousands of kids spending their parents money. Sell $10 GA tickets to the parents also. 1,000 kids getting in free spending $20 on concessions is $20,000 we wouldnít have otherwise. And if it works and builds to 10,000 kids.$$$
    Yes!! I second this.

    Smart!

    And yeah JMV, I’ve been around here with these issues longer than maggard. And hear a lot of the problems from the blue collar fan. I know tons of people that follow the program and never attend. Maggard moved here and got the job and hangs out with big supporters and fellow administrators. I’m not calling out maggard or trying to get personal, but I wonder how many friends maggard has around here that aren’t RCAF members or Cajun fans.

    Free? Wrong....The problem with giving things away for free isnít what youíd think. Yes, if you give it away, youíre not getting paid for value youíve created, which most people donít like doing. However, the real drawbacks of ďfreeĒ are different.

    First, it lowers the perceived value of what youíve given away. If youíre willing to just hand it out for the asking, it must not be worth much, right? Well, if youíre doing things right, the giveaway may be quite valuable, but those who get it without paying for it wonít easily see that value. Itís sort of like you have a great sense of accomplishment when you do something that challenged you, but if you did the exact same things and found it easy to do, your sense of accomplishment wonít be there.

    Second, and perhaps more important, if you get something without having to pay for it, you have no ďskin in the game.Ē This means you donít feel called to actually take advantage of it. If itís an ebook or worksheet, you may have simply saved it somewhere in your computer, or even printed it out and filed it away. However, you most likely didnít really read it carefully and learn from it everything you could. Itís almost guaranteed that you havenít implemented in your life anything it taught you.

    Again, this free stuff is a reward for showing up...it offers little incentive to attend in the first place....the attendance woes won't be cursed with free...

    Exactly!!! Don’t bite the hand. Especially to cater to the fair weather complaint crowd

    I get what you’re saying In this life lesson, but if it’s letting kids in free that would have otherwise had their parents pay then it doesn’t change your value part of it. Get kids in there having a good time with friends and taking selfies posting to social media. Kids will make going to the game cooler than anyone else will. And eventually it will be THE event in town.

    Parents will have to pay to get in. People who would not go will go! Itís not free you nickel and dime them. They probably pay 20 dollars to park!

    Remember HUD sent players into schools to read to kids. They gave out free tickets to kids and told them to come to the game and see them. That was when our attendance went up. Parents bought tickets and brought their kids.

    Of course you can. INSIDE of Cajun field.

    For reasons/excuses for why people will not attend Louisiana football games check out the post by Zachary Dubois in the Ragin Cajun football group. 218 comments. After reading the comments I think we would have to provide free tailgating, free parking at Cajun field, then sell tickets to the game for $10. Casual fan expectations. However, I do agree our concessions need to be greatly improved

    Someone mentioned earlier. Maggard needs a local young leader to head up this endeavor. A true lifer Cajun fan that can hit ground zero.

    Not Free!! People still have to pay for stuff. If I get a beer I pay for it, if I get food I pay for it, if you want the privilege of having your own personal tailgate area you pay for that with your RCAF membership. I say we still charge same price for tickets, instead of average fans bringing there chairs, we have a designated area for these folks where they can pay for there own food and drinks where they can tailgate.

    If you want to park closer you better pony up 20 bucks to park for limited parking in Cajun Field.

    He would be good but I’d rather someone even younger. Like a Richie falgout or a Jace Conrad.
