Default Stay the whole game?

Maybe winning isn't the answer. Apparently even multiple national championships can't keep the fans in the stadium at Alabama.

Saban is calling out the tide fans: http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/in..._stay_the.html

Its an epidemic. The only solution is finding a way to engage fans when playing lesser opponents. Wifi in the stadium, more cut aways to other game on the screen during breaks, something more to entertain in the downtime.

There are only two ways to cut down on this.

1. Ban HDTV's
2. Allow booze in the stadium.

I'm thinking we are on to something.

At least our students did a much better job of sticking around the last home game. Hopefully it'll be the same for the Miss. State game.

People are going to leave early for whatever reason. Beat the traffic, it's cold, they have other shit to do, etc.

There is no way to make everyone stay except lock the gates.

I've always wondered why they had tv commercial breaks at the actual game. Why can't they just delay the action for folks on the tv, and let the games continue on at the stadium. I'm sure you can keep fans in their seats for 2 hours of almost non stop action, compared to almost 4 hours with a bunch of breaks in between the game.

The problem with that would be that the actual game would be over long before the people watching on tv saw the end. The game would be at around half-time on tv when it was actually over. Friends, family, etc that were at the game would know the ending, and potentially spill the beans, before the people at home got a chance to see it. If the people at home knew what was going to happen, most would stop watching, which would cut down on viewers for the ends of games.

Guess this is the next step. Alabama suspends some student seating for home game against Tennessee

Quote:
Some Alabama student organizations have had their block seating suspended for Saturday’s home game against Tennessee, Melissa Brown of AL.com reports.

The news comes only a few days after The Crimson White, Alabama’s student newspaper, reported that student government association president Jimmy Taylor stressed the importance of attendance in an email to student leaders last week.

Gotcha, thought it would incline folks to stay the whole game :). I think they should be more efficient with their commercials. The game usually last 2 hours, ESPN, and CBS somehow make them last 3 hours and 30 minutes with commercials. I think taking shorter breaks between touchdowns would be better. Keep the game flowing with little to no interuption, and show more commercials during halftime.

I agree with this somewhat. Reviews add to it as well. The game needs to flow along.
