      I know many of you have season tickets and love the experience of gamedays in the Swamp, but when you stay home it'll help get the administration's attention that we will not continue to tolerate the ridiculous product on the field.

        While that might sound good in theory, I think it’s frankly misguided. First...they already have my money, so the only “impact” would be my seats being empty. For that to happen, I would have to choose to not only not attend, but also to not sell my tickets, in a show of “protest”. Sorry, that’s not happening.

        Now my daughter is a Jr. at my alma mater, and while my team winning is very, very important to me, it is WAY down the list on the things I find most important in life. Having the experience of gameday with my family and friends ranks higher - sorry. If I had done as you suggest, I would have missed 2 historic and epic events in Gator history - namely the Heave to Cleve, and the Tom Petty tribute.

        I guess I’m just an “in all kinds of weather” guy. It’s more than the game to me.

            The tickets are paid for. Staying home just hurts the charities running the concession stands.

                Hey, I get it. I sat in the same seat at Florida Field for damn near 30 years. I won't spend a dime until they make a change, though. It's my only way of attempting to get their attention.

                  You’re not alone and frankly if my daughter wasn’t there I might think differently. Go Gators!

                      I agree, it's so bad the AD should pull the trigger right now. But it's not our fault and I shouldn't have to alter my families traditionions because we have a chicken **** administration.The product sucks full stadium or not.

                        Y'all enjoy. Somebody have a good cold one for me. I prefer a nice dark beer. A good stout or porter will do nicely. I may not even turn the TV on. Let me know how it goes.

                        I made the determination on the ride home after the craptastic display last week that I wouldn't be going to any more games except FSU. It really isn't a protest or anything because me being there or not won't matter a hill of beans as far as any changes coming about. It's just that after 8 years I can't bear to watch any more of this kind of football. It literally makes me sick.

                        I'll tape it and if we win I'll watch it but if we lose I'll send it off to digital heaven. Hope everyone has a good time!

                          I feel the same. I'm not going to bash anyone for going win or lose....I won't be taking in any games though this season or possibly next. I still applaud those that go strickly for tradition as it is a huge part of the CFB experience. I also agree with those that won't go or re new season tickets until they can be excited about what's on the field.

                          Not with the TV money coming in... now if the ratings and ad revenue drop.. then something will happen.
