    Tide-Pride and other sections not filling up

    The stadium was not full for any game this year except maybe Texas ATM. Should TP have penalties for not showing up or selling the tickets? It is a shame that we at a time of dominance and people want to buy tickets and not show up.

    Solutions?

    Which sections (other than the South end zone upper deck) were not full? A seat here or there was free but I didn't see wholesale seats open before halftime of any game except Western Carolina.

    Not using the tickets is exactly what the students are getting beaten down by on the other thread. So that answer does not work according to TP holders.

    With electronic scanning, you could refuse to sell it to them in the future if it wasn't used.

    Thousands of open seats just not all in one section. All over the stadium were empty seats. I could easily have gone and sat in 50 yard line seats.

    Pay full price for them rather than $5 and then you have the right to complain about someone who has between $80-$200 invested in a ticket.

    With the exception of the Western Carolina game,
    I would like to see your proof. I drive from Atlanta every week and do not see what
    you are taking about. The only visible problem is the student section.

    Starting to seem like somebody needs a timeout.
    Due to the current workload, the light at the end of the tunnel will be temporarily turned off.
