This is how it was when my dad had tickets in the 80s and 90s. Parking was free. We also left early if the tigers were ahead. Fans leaving early has been around for a LONG time. Early 3rd quarter or beginning of 4th. I don't see why people are so offended by it now.

Said "thousand of empty seats at stadium today," and then followed it up with "it is a problem in all of college football."

LSU fans, have left games for years....vs Florida?

In a game that was at least feasibly in question until late in the 4thQ?

Really?

Probably true.

But something's changed.

Really?
At halftime several times and yes in 4th quarter, in a close game? Maybe so but I don't have picture evidence to prove it. But this wasn't a "great" Florida team and LSU basically dominated the game.

Oh no. I got it. It was more of a statement like:

"If you don't like all this, don't go, AND STOP BITCHING"

Let the people that have no problem going go. Shut the F up.

Chair. Why are you such an a-hole.about it? Just let them be upset. It's obviously something people are passionate about. GTFO if you are just going to be dick.for no reason.

I was surprised to see so many empty seats from the git. And 230-231(I believe part of the student section) was empty the entire time.
I really hate to get in the debate of old and new generation Tiger Stadium but its been progressively getting worse.

Oh well what are you going to do, right? I'll keep going to the games so I don't need to hear that embarrassing shite on TV.

It's awesome that he's being a dick about it. These whiny babies are obsessed with the football attendance habits of people they don't even know, and they're mad because the rest of the world doesn't make sure that Tiger Stadium is 100% full 100% of the time for them. Self-centered narcissistic baby shit, and it's fun to see dicks like Chair piss them off.

Beast Mode, Chair!

I was pretty amazed at the empty seats for a Florida game. I'm not talking about because fans were leaving either, I mean 1st and 2nd quarter they would show rows of empty seat. I have no problem with folks leavingbefore the game is over but tthat's different then being empty from the get go. I guess those fools selling those crappy ticket s on stub hub for 100 bucks feel like idiots. Now before I pay 100 bucks for those seats that you can read the underside of an airplane when passing over I just as soon stay home. You can't see shite from there.

Be honest. Did you post that just because we got into an argument on the poli board?

My two cents here...
All of the points made seem valid here.
But my observation arriving on campus today 4 hours before kickoff was it was dead. I was expecting the Florida game to draw out the best in tailgating. The parking lots were not full and those on campus just seemed to be sitting around talking. I expect some atmosphere and today there was not a lot.
And yes...we stayed 'til the end, sang the Alma Mater and them headed out!
GO TO HELL, OLE MISS

Do y'all think length of the game has anything to do with people leaving early? The first half of the game today took an hour and a half. To many TV timeouts for me. I was in the upper east deck and at half I was done. It was hot up there today.

All and all, the experience is still good. Just remember now that once in the game you are the minority and LSU is no longer catering to the ticket holders. It becomes about tv advertising.

Didn't realize it was you until just now. I think we honestly just disagree about every single thing ever.
