I know this has nothing to do with TROY football. It doesn't even pertain to college football, but I thought some of you might find it interesting. I read yesterday that the price for parking at the LA Chargers game yesterday was $100. You read that right, one HUNNERT dollars to park your wheels to see the CHARGERS play. Like I said, there ain't no way....
I contemplate that the future of most Pro Athletic organizations will look far different from the past.
The demand just cannot keep up/sustain the increase in costs; less participants in the fan pool as costs go up. Health, legal and liability issues will increase as a % of revenues. Seems gambling interests are keeping some athletic leagues afloat, if for no other reason. Limited pool of sponsors/potential sponsors who can pony up the millions of $$$ necessary to support the organizations, another whopper of a recession could further reduce the supply. Commercialization/Unions have turned off fans who look to college sports or other activities to satisfy the appetite for athletic events.
I hate it.
IE: as a family we were huge Falcons fans till the strike in the 1980's. Haven't watched a regular season game of ANY NFL team since, and occasionally watch a super bowl 2) We were huge Braves fans until the strike. The video of Glavine et al walking out turned my stomach, Haven't even watched a World Series since.
greed (owners, players, unions, parking lot vendors has killed the sport) all at the expense of fans.
troyalumni: I know he got hurt, but wasn't sure if he came back or not. Glad he is ok.

trojantke: If you get bored during the day, go check out the Jags Jungle thread on score predictions. Needless to say, most of them are apparently drinking vodka for breakfast.
