Ok, I am starting this topic really early to give all of those 'couch potatoes' time to provide us excuses why they don't come to games, etc.
Right now, this team is 9-7 and is dominating the last three games. People complain its not worth the money to support a lackluster team, blah, blah. No excuses! The Ticats are in the playoffs, kicking a** on their way to a home playoff game.
After last nights game of 23,000 people - I was very disappointed. This team needs full support - they've earned it.
So November 6th needs to be a full house to let the team know that were behind them going into the playoffs!
For all of those casual fans by tickets for November 6th and get access to playoff tickets as well - who cares if its going to be a little chilly its CFL football!
You can’t threaten fans to show up at every Ticats game or risk being called a “lazy S.O.B”". It’s hardly a clever marketing tool and thankfully, the current Tiger-Cat organization doesn’t stoop to that level.
Attendance will naturally increase year by year as the product becomes consistently competitive.
As an analogy, how would it look if Theatre Aquarius called citizens of Hamilton derogatory names just because they aren’t packing the house for every event ?..the reality is that the onus is on the theatre to make people want to attend.
There’s a lot on the plates of the average Hamilton family right now and I think 23,000 is a pretty good number…but yes, more would be a better goal to achieve for sure.
If you can plunk your fat A$$ down on the couch for 3 hrs then shirley 5,000 out 500,000 Hamiltonians can manage to find Ivor wynne on a perfect Friday night to watch a 1st place team battle a fantastic 2nd place team for almost nothing.
I would love to know how many Hamiltonians sat at home and watched it.
Like I said, stay at home 20 buck . Can't afford it..2am .
I go to a lot of games -- last night, unfortunately, wasn't one of them. Making a 7pm kick-off on a weeknight in the golden horseshoe is f'n difficult. Even when a buddy of mine was picking up the tab for my ticket. Hence, had to decline the offer -- PVR'd the game and watched it about a quarter behind.
