re: What gets fans back into the stands?
Above all a team that is fun to watch and isnt the worst defensive team in School History. Win the games you are supposed to win, put a quality product on the field, and people will pack the stands. Always have and always will. Even when winning this year this team is an error machine and hard to watch. This is not even mentioning Johnsons ongoing goal to make every game last 4+ hours. This is not fun to watch.

I don't think TV is the deciding factor, but when you're at the game and they seem to take a commercial break after every series, it drags the game out and makes things boring.

Plus the piped in music, and EVERYONE on there phones and not engaged, it feel like you're at a baseball game.

Parking sucks but that's always been at LSU.

When I go, it seems like most arne't true Tiger Fans. Someone gave them tickets or something.

The metal bleachers have got to go. I understand maybe they can’t all be removed/replaced at once, but they have to start somewhere. The exterior of the stadium is beautiful, and the inside along the lines and outfield is a literal shite hole.

Parking and better after game flow.

If you're going back to Baton Rouge park here. If you need to hop on the interstate park here.

Having to dive all the way into BR and then get on the Interstate adds another hour to the trip home. Plus the hour you sit at a standstill in the parking lot. This is why I love 11:00 games now. I can get home for 8:00.

Think it comes down to huge tv’s with high definition, air conditioners, and being so crowded in stands. Probably need to move to better experiences in the stadiums rather than maxing out seat capacity.

I tried to address this back at the start of the baseball season and got blasted.
The "fans" on here told me they were
1.Cold (bunch of pussies)
2. Going to Mardi Gras (really? In that woke city)
3. Not interested in early season games (proves not be interested in late season games either).
4. Traffic (age old excuse, not even true in baseball season).

As you can see - they just don't care. They'll show up after a natty win and say " I bin forevaa, geuaxxx tigahhhhsssss".

Ass hats.

Winning and consistent play. Doesn’t help the box is not fan friendly. Also doesn’t help that just about every game can be watched on TV by streaming for most.
It’s a lot cheaper to watch from the couch.

I think this is a serious issue. It’s not just baseball either. It’s also football and basketball. I mean I know people are going to say “winning” but it’s unrealistic to expect to have a “2019” season every year. Will it ever be the same again?



To me the game is the attraction. To many people want to go to games for other reasons. They want everything easy and then they want it cheap and fast. I see a lot of complaints about wifi. I don't go to the games to get on the phone or on the internet. I look at it as a time to let go and not worry about the phone.

I was going to include baseball in my season ticket package but after reading the posts on this board, day, after day, after day, about how bad the team is- I didn’t buy them.
Maybe there are more like me…

Its not even that. Tickets are not hard to come by even in 2019. I let my seasons go this year after 26 seasons. Part of it is I am getting older and just don't feel like going every week. I used to sell my tickets when I didn't go, now it is hard to even give them away. Then with what LSU has done to the tailgating scene it just isn't the same for those of who were around for the glory days of tailgating. It is a shame the young kids today will never really know how big it used to be.

1) Quit price gouging on concessions and beer

2) chairbacks throughout the stadium

3) concourse from left to right field bleachers with beer booths amd concessions, some chairback seated areas and have leaning rails with standings tables on them like they do in the upper south deck in tiger stadium

4) more fun atmosphere with fun music to hype the players amd fans up. You can keep the traditional stuff and also mix in some fun stuff

5) Win more

6) I said it once and I’ll say it again, quit price gouging, the beer should be no more than 5 bucks a beer… it’s pure highway Robbery!!

A championship caliber season. LSU fans are different now from when I was younger. Only come out on stronger seasons. Passionate fanbase that got neutered by many things like the corporate push from the university. An example would be the costs. Louisiana is a working class state and the economy hasn't exactly soared the past decade in the state. They constantly raise prices and move the small man out of their seats who were probably the most passionate. Now it's watch it at home on TV unless it's a truly meaningful season. I think that's how a lot probably think now. Too much headache. Lots of other issues too with how the environment has evolved. shite traffic around the area, etc.

I gave up my tickets when the price of the tickets made it not worth it to me when I can watch the games at home on a big screen that was less than the cost of season tickets.

I dont think it will ever be the same with TV and streaming the way it is. Too many positives to staying at home unless it is a "Game of the Century type" People use to show up for evey game becasue they only had 1-2 games on TV per year but now every game is on TV for any sport.
