Level of Flustration?

Okay, I didn't get to watch the game, but it seems clear that the level of frustration is relatively high (fire him, unacceptable, etc.). Frustration's great, but has it reached a level which will cause you to act?

Season ticket holders? Will you stop attending games?

Non-season ticket holders? Will you eat the cost of the tickets in order to not attend?

And no TV for you above people.

Has it reached that point?

Just curious.

Thanks.

Merchandising 10%

Vending and parking on game day 5%
That makes sense. I didn't think that ticket sales would be more than ~30%. And the organization already has the season ticket holders' money, but not the game day ticket money, yes?

If so, what is the ratio between season ticket holders and game day ticket buyers (if that's the correct term)?

I think I'm a lucky one because I've never been to a Chiefs loss. Or a royals loss for that matter. This year I went @ SD and the the Bengals game. All together I've probably been to 15-20 Chiefs games, all wins. I went to every home game in 2003 except the Broncos game, which we won anyways. So maybe if I buy season ticks again next year, we'll go undefeated at home if I make every game. PLus I'll be going to the @SD game again next year.

I am a season ticket holder. Haven't missed a game since 2001. I am going to let the weather decide this next game. If it is nice enough, I am going golfing. If my tailgate crew all goes, I may go, we will have to see. I am really having a hard time deciding if I want them to lose the rest for a great top 5 pic in the draft, or win for the fans.

In most respects, no, not at all.

With respect to football, driving and voting, errrr, it sure can be.

Brutal, but true.

They are big boys. They get paid millions. They have already made more money at 25 or 30 than we'll make in our lifetimes.

They can handle a couple of boos or empty seats. They aren't 5 years old. If they don't like it they need to perform.

If we hurt their fwagile wittle feewings, they can dry their eyes with this week's $50,000 paycheck.

A substantial drop in stadium attendance is the only thing that will get Clark Hunt's attention regarding Carl and Herm.

I get your point, and I agree. I just love going to games. And arguing even when I'm wrong.

Indeed. And I'm assuming that they get paid whether the stadium is empty or full?

It seems clear that the players are flustrated. Perhaps they would like to see the stadium empty?

It also seems clear that the way to force change is to exert some economic pressure. Signs are nice and all, but if you really are flustrated to the point of feeling pain/anger, give some back.

Quit being a junkie.

I don't know why people are upset. All the young guys are getting a lot of playing time which is what everyone wanted.

It's the losing due to game management. We haven't lost the last 2 games because we have young players. In the end, all of our young players may develop into Pro Bowlers; but our coaching will still blow ass.

I don't think that many people are flustrated about the players. Well, maybe that Raynor knob.
