    Is there (probably) tens of thousands of parking space around Tiger Stadium (and a good chunk of them are free)?

    Are fraternity and sorority rows all within easy walking distance of Cajun Field?

    Trick people into showing up and people will show up organically.

    Someone or something needs to initially turn the wheel and it will become a perpetual motion machine ... up and until some admin type hits the brakes.

    I wouldnít know lol. Iím just making the point that right now, there is absolutely no incentive to buy a reserved seat. Those people are being suckered right now. GA is the way to go.

    I buy a reserved seat same 4 since the 90s. The only incentive I need to buy that seat is I am a Cajuns fan, I support my alma mater, and I want the best for them. Same reason I am an RCAF member. Either you support for the right reasons or you don't.

    Any one on here in retail or heck in the oil field for that matter? I am curious how many of you when business is slow gives your inventory away for free?

If you donít, youíll be stuck with the 15k ďdiehardsĒ and _____ about why more people donít come to games. To be honest, the only ones _____ing are the ďdiehardsĒ. Why arenít YOU holding the admin accountable?
    Come and listen to the show tonight. We are diehards and we do hold them accountable.

    What does giving a parking spot, tailgating spot or hell, even a ticket to someone actually cost in this scenario? You are comparing apples to oranges. Giving away a car on my lot costs money, allowing someone into my bar without charging cover produces opportunity.

    Every successful business with a national footprint has loss leaders.

    Sometimes their on the front end, sometimes their embedded, sometimes their on the back end.

    When business is slow they tend to give away more.

    ps It's always either temporary or shifting.

    Broadcast does as long as there is a cash buy along with "bonus" commercials...of course our inventory finite...we sell air and time, and there is only so much to go around. Once it's gone, it's gone...bonus happens all the time for various reasons, most stations have fire sales during the year especially the last half of December. But, if you don't position your product as having value, than are the free isn't really useful.

    Ah I see you have never been in a conversation with the people who sell those tail gate spots. They refer to them as inventory. Just like selling a ticket or box seat. Everything in the gates of Cajun field is inventory to them from the parking spots to the tailgate spots to the stadium seats. It is what they sell.

    Yep. We have a people problem. Product on the field has been good. If that don’t sell it nothing will. All the rest is just fluff its all about the football.

    When you say position to have value what are you comparing to? I will venture to say we have one of the most affordable FBS venues to attend a football game in the country. I bet there are programs with a lot less success than this one that cost much more to attend a game. Just last home game there was a “fire sale’” of 14 bucks a ticket with free parking.

    When business is good they have fewer sales and give less away.

    In fact when business is good they tend to raise prices.

    Weird how it works, huh?
