    Pay your extra $60 and enjoy your shorter walk to the games.
    But do they pay a fee such as RCAF at saints and astros? I thought we were already paying to park as part of our annual donation. If we are being honest parking is the biggest reason most people join RCAF.

    Sounds like double dipping just because we can to me.

    At some point, we are going to hit a ceiling as to what our athletic department can charge for this conference.

    Don't know where you would get that. Those dudes jumped the shark a long time ago in my book. LSU is so far into their fans pocket they could give them a hand job. I just don't think UL has the type of program that warrants taking money from fans at every turn. I know it takes money to build a winner, but Right now it just looks like we are trying to spend our way into a better conference. It means us fans have to pay the price even though we are still in the Sun Belt.
    I know something has to come first, but I would like to see our program moving up before I have to pay for it.

    No problem. It's just you are literally the only person who would ever identify me as a Liberal Tiger fan.

    You have to pay to play. Period. Doesn't matter where we currently are, it matters what we're doing and where we want to be.

    You go out and spend on a nice suit BEFORE the job interview, not after.

    And btw, it's working. So keep spending baby.

    Again, just getting your goat. I thought that was our arrangement?

    The suit is a good analogy. The problem is I already have a few suits UL has made me buy. Why is UL making me buy another one for a bunch of games I am not interested in. I know charging more is the best way to grow our budget, but right now UL football is not a good value. I will be interested to see how attendance goes this year. I think we will not see the increases many of us are expecting because of the increased cost.

    It's $10 extra per game.... they're not requiring you to double your giving...

    This is a good conversation to have..

    At what point would you consider Cajun Football to be a good value?

    I only go to one game a year(zero last year) even though I have season tickets. At least my rcaf donation gave me a parking pass. UL is fighting for entertainment dollars and right now I think they are at the limit for what they can reasonably charge for the product they are delivering.

    Cusa or preferably AAC membership. I was ok with the SBC a few years ago, but now everything is way more expensive and the teams coming in are worse and even less interesting. I also don't like that we (fans) have to pay for us to get in a better conference while all the other SBC teams got there without bleeding the fans first.

    I can't disagree with any of that, but we've always had to do everything for this damn athletic department. Fair or not, it's on us to make this thing happen.

    I see the commitment, I see the vision. I'll give and spend until I no longer believe in what's being done here.

    I'll say this...if they're now asking for more money...they better revamp those amateur hour looking RCAF stickers...I refuse to put those plain-white shield logos on my vehicles...

    RCAF just sent a reminder. If you want a parking pass for football, the form is due by 5/31.
