Thread: Realistic Game Day Expectations?

    What a Downer Realistic Game Day Expectations?

    As I read through this Facebook post about what is keeping many people away from UL games the fact that they have to park across the street keeps coming up. Ask anyone who is a fan of an on campus stadium if they would like the opportunity to park across the street? Our casual fan feels like they should be able to park where RCAF members park and have first come first serve tailgating where we have been paying good money for years. In most on campus facilities if you park from the Light Center to Blackham you are paying top dollar and are glad to be that close. Here if you park at Blackham you expect a freaking shuttle.

    Bottom line is inside the gates at Cajun field is not big enough to grow the tailgating experience to where you can attract the casual fan and develop them into a die hard fan. The university has never thought outside the box in developing another area to grow the tailgating experience for any new fans that might want to become Cajun fans. I have had may ideas but to long for hear and now. Look at these comments.

    The person who originated that post is an idiot. You can tell from her comments replies below…even calling the Sun Belt the worst conference in the country.

    I don't have Facebook, but parking is not an issue. You can literally get to the game 30 mins before kickoff and get inside the stadium with enough time to get concessions before the game starts. I dunno how many places you can do that at.

    they say that because the parking lot is empty. if the parking lot was full no one would complain about parking across the street

    Spot on

    When you see empty spots close, ACROSS the STREET seems miles away.

    Conversely, when you are miles away, the first empty slot seems close

    It is hilarious that all of the people complaining have pictures of themselves at lspoo or with lspoo shirts and hats.

    Yes. But in my opinion always have to keep parking inside the gates as an incentive to join the RCAF. You start letting non RCAF park in the gates you will probably to lose some RCAF members.

    I had to get out of there. I felt like I was getting dumber by the minute.

    They said the stadium should have been built in the middle of the property. Well, in 1971, that was the middle of the property.

    Also, the stadium should have been built east to west so that no one was directly in the sun. Most, not all, stadiums are built north/south.

    Tell me about it. It is causing me to have an early bourbon. I hope all is well.

    While Louisiana Saturday Nights totally fixes that problem, I find it humorous that they would rather the football team be blinded instead of the fans.

    That makes for great football
