    Where did you hear or see that? I didn't see it in the email. Opt-In was my choice, so maybe I missed it.

    Oh, I see it now.

    The only other option on your TAF is to "convert payments to a 100% tax-deductible gift"...and give the same amount again next year! Brutal.

    Interesting also that your seats might change and if they as re in a more expensive area you will need to pay the difference. Thankfully they allow you to opt-out throughout the entire process. Im topped out $$ wise

    That's because they've already spent the money.

    After reading the demand letter sent to Bohn, your money might end up being spent on things you weren't aware of.

    I opted out. I don’t mind foregoing this season. I doubt there will be any tailgating, so half the fun is out. The only home games I’d like to attend are Notre Dame and Washington.

    These choices make it a tough call. I have 2 seats ($1,100)and belong to Cardinal and Gold($3,000). I don't plan to attend the New Mexico State game. That makes it $4,100 for 5 games or $410 per ticket for a lesser game day experience. I have hung in for many years, because I don't want to lose my good seats. Also I am very unhappy with Caruso, Folt, and Helton, so I am strongly considering opting out.

    Tailgating is likely gone for good... with the changes in recent years it is pretty easy to see that they do not support it or respect tradition and settled on making it as inconvenient as possible while they slowly phased it down and then out... after using the Coronavirus as an excuse to put it on hiatus the next couple of years they will simply not bring it back... or, at best, they will make it an official "ticketed" event... to me it was already dead when compared to what I was use to in the early 2000s...

    I think you are right. I think they will use this as excuse to wipe out all personal tailgating and force you into an USC sanction event where they can charge you 10.00 for a beer and 15.00 for a glass of wine. Just another money grab while they continue to screw over their patrons.

    Yes, they are hurting for money. Season tickets sales are declining thanks to strong arm tactics by USC and Helton's glorious run to mediocrity. No way are they giving back the money.

    I agree with the posts above about tailgating. SC slowly trying to strip away allowing “average/regular/typical” fans having fun anywhere within the vicinity of the Coliseum without them getting a cut. Absolutely brutal! They just see this as leverage. SC remains all about that coin. To hell with tradition and caring for fans and alums if they’re not getting a cut!

    I thought it might be a tough decision but when I started looking at the other side of the equation, it was easy for me to opt out. Besides the obvious risk factors for me at the age of 70, there is also the socio-political aspect of things. It's pretty much a sure thing that there will be people outside the stadium and in the stands for no other reason than to make political statements and disrupt things for those of us who just want to watch a football game. Why would anyone want to go through something like that?
