    I was there watching the ESA game and you are right, it did seem like the soccer game fans were louder. lol

    Lot A was a construction zone. The big lot A closest to Track was open parking. Only Lot was B and Suite parking near football stadium in 2017.

    I'm an All American Donor and have been for a while. This is the first year we've had to have parking passes for baseball. Before it was first-come first-serve.

    Like I said in my initial post, I like the idea but, when nearly 2/3 of the A section is empty and 1/2 of the B section is empty and the general admission folks are parking on congress. My point of this whole discussion is that there is no reason to make the parking sections that big. The Tigue only holds 6,033 but, it looks like the parking is setup of 20,000. When 2/3 of the A Section is empty I have a problem with that.

    It matters not to me how it looks. You give at a higher level, thus you have a better parking zone. It's setup to reward higher levels of giving and hopefully motivate others to do the same. As I've stated, once the cost to me to participate at certain levels becomes unreasonable and I will no longer participate. But there is no need to devalue the present level of perks by shrinking the parking areas so they look full and allowing those that have decided not to pay for parking to park closer. Either pay for it, or not.

    The problem is NOT that the parking areas are too big... or that the $ level is too high. It's a combination of both. The university is leaving money on the table with seemingly arbitrary size and $ amounts of the parking situation. Nevermind the fact that parking is taking reasonable tailgating area, and tailgating is pushed into the limestone. It doesn't make sense. They should have taken a season to see how things are/ have been, and maybe talked to people...
    But they didn't, the decisions were arbitrary, and they are leaving money on the table. Including some of mine.

    Leaving money on the table? Really? I'm in Lot B, and the ONLY reason I'm at the RCAF level I'm at is BECAUSE I wanted Lot B parking for Baseball. Sounds like they made money on me. And many others.

    You think people are mad about parking farther? The stadium had about 4,500-5,000 actual butts in seats tonight, on a Wednesday, against Nicholls, after a 2-5 start. I think we are doing just fine and the new parking lots aren't going to keep fans away. Making the lots smaller will only serve to make the paid lots completely pointless, thus making the actual paying RCAF members mad. The idea is to increase revenue and Athletic budget. Maggard knows exactly what he's doing.

    Complainers will complain. Get out of the way of our progress.

    People want to talk about leaving money on the table. Why don't they charge for all parking within the gates of Cajun Field during baseball season? Those of us who are RCAF don't pay for parking with our passes and charge those who choose not to join RCAF say $5 per game. I don't think that would keep people from coming out to the game.

    And people, no one is parking out at Congress. My son got to the game at 6:30 last night and parked along the gravel roadway leading out to Bertrand. Not a very long walk.

    If you've got money sitting on the table...pay up to park closer, fill those lots and help the university at the same time...

    I like the reserved parking. I guess the bottom line here is maybe decrease the size of the reserved lots to accommodate the actual number of passes out there... because there certainly is some wasted space - but maybe that is intentional to make people desire to park closer. LSU game will be best test of lot space requirement - however - as I'm sure most passes out there will be used.

    It's $500/person for the season.

    They were offered based on RCAF rank, limited by the number of season tickets an individual holds.
