Several years ago I would hold weekly drawings at my workplace for free Alabama home game tickets. The numbers one reason fans did not sign up were conflicts with their children's or grandchildren's recreational league soccer or football games. The second reason was the intimidation of going to a game with 85,000 fans in a town were you were not familiar with traffic flow, parking, or the stadium.
I personally think the game day experience has been diminished by television with the horrible starting times for some games, increased commercial timeouts, and lengthen game times. Wait until we get one of those horrible Thursday night games and see what happens to our attendance. Games are getting more and more about TV and less and less about the fans.
