    Just an idea. After pages upon pages on RP how to “fix” attendance, thought a cooler surface to tailgate on was an idea. Parking, I’ve done both, parked at CF and walk. Makes me no difference.

    Block off CDB, Cajun walk from Bourgeious north. Parking at Blackham for casual fans.
    An idea worth exploring.

    All or in part.

    The thing is, the “diehards” here and on social media want to talk ____ to anyone who isn’t as diehard as them. Here’s the hard truth. The stadium is ____ing empty. If they want a foot rub at their seat, you entertain the idea. Until you sell out and have a waiting list, you try to do what your customers ask. If it’s parking, concessions, whatever. If you don’t, you’ll be stuck with the 15k “diehards” and _____ about why more people don’t come to games. To be honest, the only ones _____ing are the “diehards”. Why aren’t YOU holding the admin accountable?

    Go stay ordinary somewhere else if you donít want to pay to see a ranked team.

    Yíall arenít tired trying to solve peoples problems who canít solve there own.

    Iím sure Iíll go to rice and at some point say. The atmospheres better, the musics better, the concessions are better, and the crowds bigger and they suck.

    But we will win and thatís all that matters.
    There's one problem. Prices started to go up BEFORE we were ranked. Remember the attendance issues in 2018 and 2019?

    I get that we are winning, but people still aren't showing up. There's obviously a disconnect with the way people see the prices and how they correlate with the gameday experience.

    Social media doesn't inspire or motivate.

    It is very poor at getting a message across as well.

    Social media is fantastic at preaching to the choir.

    The hardest task in all of this is convincing to ordinary fans why prices increased and the value behind it. And it has to be more than just "we are winning now." There's obviously no demand to use just that reason.

    It's not the job of the fan to just show up. It's the job of the administration to give the fan a reason why their money is well spent at Cajun Field.

    I didn’t know we had a choir.

    What made Hud so popular in helping bring attendance to Cajun Field was his way to interact with the community. We need more of that.

    I still don’t think the prices are the problem. It’s atmosphere, crap music, and long lines. And if we were sold out with the lines we have now it would make sense. But with 15k-20k it’s dumb.

    It’s not price. People wouldn’t come for free for the fan experience provided.

    He treated the walk up ticket buyer the same as the 6 figure donor.

    And they showed up because of it.

    As for the gameday experience, yes. It has to get better.

    Some people want the coach to shake there hand and thank them for coming when they walk in. He DA coach. You DA fan. Go to fan day for dat.

    Y’all ever wonder how good we could have been under Hud if he would have coached more than rah rah the fans.

    No better than we were. He was a rah rah coach at the exact time we needed him. There’s a reason he’s coaching high school now.

    Maybe I’m just old school. I want a football coach to coach and win games. Keep the program clean. Sure a few public appearances here and there.

    I’d rather the players getting out in the community rallying fans. With nil can’t we pay them to do it?? Haha
