    Ditto.

    I cut my donation in a 1/3 recently. I don't claim to know all the ins-and-outs of what goes on in the athletic department, but there are plenty of people who I know personally on this board who are up in arms. With that in mind, as I prioritize my own budget, I have trouble justifying dumping money into something like that. That doesn't make me any less of a fan. My hunch is that there are a lot of people out there making a similar evaluation of their own donation right now.

    By the way, I got a nice "thank you for your donation" letter after I cut my donation. Seemed to be an odd message to a donor.

    Priority seats are the ones you have to pay a fee besides the ticket price.

    Don't you have to pay a fee for all baseball tickets?

    No clue. I don't do baseball. My outfield GA seats for softball were, IIRC, without fee.

    I believe baseball requires a fee to buy grandstand tickets but not outfield tickets. Note this fees are paid to RCAF. They are tax deductible.

    Correct.
    And as for my fan stats..
    No including meals and fuel and merch..
    The last 3 years of support I've passed along to Louisiana and its Atheltics: 13% of my annual income. That's personal donations. My business has kicked in an extra 8% of net income.

    That should say enough.

    Bleacher season tickets also require a donation to baseball. I'm sure the roof people will be surprised they should have been paying a fee for those outfield seats.

    That's pretty admirable. You're obviously a generous person.

    But I must ask: how do you give so much when you saw the football team falling apart 2 years ago, the basketball team being locked in a bad long term contract, and believe that the the whole administration is incompetent and tearing down the program?? That's love right there.

    Aside from the tax benefits, it's not hard (to support our Athletes and coaches). I'm lucky enough that my family just enjoys being around the stadium and the Tigue. Our past time is traveling and a few years ago, I was able to convince the family that it would be cool to plan some trips around Cajun sporting events. The rest is history. (btw, this year in Houston was probably the best one yet. When we are invited back, I strongly recommend it).

    To be honest, I didn't realize it was that much. We live close and are almost always at the ball park. With Hud, I believe in the man. I crushed him last year, and my confidence has wavered, but I can't yank my support because of one bad year. I don't give much to Bob, but basketball is further down my list of favorite sports to attend. Baseball gets a lot of my greenbacks. (Forgot to mention that about 3% of that figure was probably spent of drinking with Mel).

    About RCAF and admin: You can go back and read my post history. I've begun giving to individual sports after the Hale situation, Farmer ____ ups, and the like. Believe it or not, I was a Savoie guy. Actually, I am a Savoie guy. This summer has been troubling so far and I hope he comes out clean, but this RCAF separation thing is a huge deal.

    isn't that when they "need" more?

    Doesn't priority seating mean you have a set seat? You can buy General Admission season tickets, which guarantees you a seat, but not an exact seat. I could be wrong.
