Came on the site to peruse fan thoughts about last night's game (couldn't watch it) only to find surprisingly little has been posted in this chatroom.
Is this because of heavy-handed moderators purging posts/threads or have fans simply given up on the Cats after the decade of disastrous football and general ineptitude that has characterized the Undertaker Era?
“The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference.?
Been myself for over 40yrs. I'm just getting to the point where I don't expect anything anymore,I guess I just watch out of habit now....Kinda like a bad addiction.....its a great way to kill 3 hrs. of my time....lose or lose the CATS will always be my team!!!! :oops:
A friend called me up a couple of days ago and asked where we were going to go to watch yesterdays game. We watch almost all the games at a pub. My response was, I don't think I can sit in public and watch the Cats play anymore. The really bad part of this is the Ti-Cats are here in Edmonton this Friday and I really don't think I will be going to the game as I have every year for the past decade.
My Dad and Uncle started taking me to Ti-Cat games in 1972 and I have been a fan ever since. But I am completely discouraged right now.
Kudos to Bob Young, a.k.a. Caretaker, for putting his considerable financial resources behind this team, but in light of the generally wretched on-field product since he bought the team I find the term "Undertaker" more appropriate.
Went to my first game in years vs. Winnipeg and was astounded at the carnival atmosphere, like being at the Ex, and wasn't real impressed with the " game day experience " overall as the Ticats, even though they won, didn't really impress me.
Rebuilding a team should be an ongoing experience to fruition, not a renewed experience every year or two.
Got tired of waiting last year, still a fan but fanatic no longer.
I used to have seasons tickets from '92 to '03.After the '03 season and what happened subsequently,I said that I would not spend another dime on tickets for this team until they put a CONSISTENT winner on the field....
I'm still waiting...
I also noticed not too much reaction at all here after the game last night.It might be because people are away or busy.But I'm starting to think indifference is setting in.I listened to the 5th Quarter last night and I was struck at how many people are starting to voice their opinion's about the direction of this team over the last decade and how frustrated they are.I distinctly remember one call that wanted Mr. Young to go on the 5th quarter and take calls!!!
That would be vvvveeeerrrrryyyy interesting...
I'm afraid this team,after the chronic losing,is getting to the dying days of the Ottawa Roughriders...Where no one even cares to get angry at the ineptitude any more.Sadly,that's when you know you're done...
I am surprised people are still paying to see what is on the field, I love the cats but I have to say..THEY SUCK! Totally sick of the lame product that is suppose to be a football team. I pvr the games (I watch every CFL game) and can honestly say I don't even think they are worth the electricity.
this continual losing is tough to take but.....gotta stick with the team. Things will eventually improve.
We have been led to expect an instant turnaround each time there has been a coaching change. But it ain't gonna happen that way. I believe it will take at least two seasons to come up with a consistently competitive team. I think Kent Austin can do it. I thought George Cortez would have done it too if he has been given more time.
I have never supported another CFL team. I have no plans to drop my support for the Tiger-Cats and have not changed my views on that since 1961.
If the Caretaker is willing to hang in....then the fans need to be the same way.
