    Thank you. I've said this a couple of times and I agree. I'm sick of Reds fans not be supportive of our team, regardless of the past.

    I was at the game, and it was a great night at the ballpark. Stupid weather people had me worried for nothing. I'm ignoring them the rest of the year.

    Oh, back off...if you read the thread, 2-3 people just posted official excuses...I was feeding off of that. The post was rather flippant in nature.

    However, do you live near the team? If so, have you been this season?

    I went tonight, and it turned out to be a nice night for a game, though it was a risk with the weather we were getting all afternoon. The weather was a good omen in dealing with scalpers though as I easily negotiated a good price for seats: four tickets for a combined $15, and we basically had our choice of where to sit for the game ... you certainly cannot beat that.

    BTW, tonight was the 10th game of the season I've been to, and I already have tickets for Friday night (college night) as I'll be down there with a group of about a dozen people. I definitely can't be blamed for not supporting the team! :

    Good for you, dude....4 tickets for 15 bucks is a price ANYONE could afford. I don't know what face value is but, when we're filling up less than 40% of our capacity on a nightly basis, fans have to know that they're in a buyer's market.

    Also good-on-ya for featuring Erin Andrews as your avatar. She's hot, and she's a Univ of Florida grad!

    Not in anyway trying to pull you down at all, but whether you were there or not, the paid attendance is the same bc you bought from a scalper.

    But, if no one bought from scalpers, then scalpers wouldn't buy more tickets than they need usually, so

    The fans are fine. Blame the team for years of inept business.

    I live about 20 minutes or so away from the stadium and yes I went the game last night. If they didnt have 100+ games on TV I would go to more games. But I see no reason to go to a bunch of games a pay alot of money when i can pay about $30-40 on cable and watch about 10-15 or so games a month. I like watching the games at home were i dont have to get up 50+ times to let people through our row and I dont have to listen to people yell trying to sell beer and food every 2 minutes. Its also pretty annoying to have to listen to some loud mouth guy keep on yelling at players for a good portion of the game.

    You might like that kind of stuff, I dont. I would rather be able to sit down and watch a game without people blocking my view. My seat at home is pretty comfortable and it doesnt cost $6.50 for a bottle of beer.
