    Same here. Ticket holder for almost 40 years but no more. I won’t renew and will leave TAF. Not worth the cost to fly from Sacramento to all the home games.

    I’ll fight on, but from home...

    Yeah, I wouldn't spend the money on an inferior or for that matter a broken product either. I mean the fact that there were an inordinate amount of injuries the past two seasons should send everyone packing, because we all know that not even Pete could overcome such a challenge. The Tings, et al.

    Same here, I'm not a ticket holder, but I passed on all of the USC merchandise, I was considering, this past BF and Cyber Mon.

    GOOD Riddance.

    "As a consumer"? REALLY? You really stated this? Your loyalty to our school is on the same level as buying bulk paper towels at Costco? You went Marxist with your loyalty to SC?

    Those kids on the field come first -- irregardless of the diabolical mistake administration made in retaining CH.

    Go get a shot of crown royal then re-dedicate yourself to USC -- no matter who's coaching. Ride it out like we all have to do.

    (Yes I graduated from USC. Yes I was an athlete at USC. And Yes I was an All American athlete at USC who still puts our athletes first).

    GOOD Riddance.

    REAL trojans dont talk like this. Why not ride it out?

    BET you couldn't denounce SC like you just did here on the stairs of Heritage in front of the team.

    Sleep it off and come back LOYAL tomorrow.

    Fans saying they are canceling their seaons tickets, purchases, etc. should at very least wait until a decision comes down from HH. It makes them look like the worst of the fair-weather fans. This frenzy to stop supporting the football team is premature.
    Wait until you actually know what's going on from the horse's mouth.

    Keeping Mr.Fight isn't about putting our athletes first at all, now the transfer portal on the other hand

    What do you say to someone who has followed USC football for 24 years? A lot of us have already stayed the course. The last 10 years have been tough. We already rode it out through sanctions, Kiffin, Sark, and now Helton.

    I appreciate your athletic accomplishments at USC but I think you are being a bit simplistic by treating posters here like they are bandwagon fans for reaching the end of the rope.

    If you are serious, I urge you to take the first step and do not attend the upcoming bowl game and if possible, don't even watch it on TV. If the ratings tank, you are sending a message, even if its a small one.

    I would argue that he went "Adam Smith" on his loyalty to USC and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Blindly following an organization by "riding it out" is more of a Marxist thing.

    That's where you are wrong.

    This is like saying you have to keep supporting a family member who has an addiction. If he chooses to keep wasting your money on drugs than at some point you just stop.

    This administration didn't just keep Helton. They full on let us know that football is no longer a priority.

    Precisely! Either you are a "fan" of USC or you are a Trojan.

    You are a TRICK my man. Go "Consume" elsewhere. Sounds like you were never a TROJAN to begin with. Your angered response says a ton. LOL. "Merchandise". FOH you Bum.

    Well stated.....but I profoundly disagree. Either you are a fan, or a TROJAN. If you survived Hackett you can survive this current dumpster fire.

    REAL Trojans never jump ship.

    The only way you are going to enact any real change is by dropping the Football Program's revenue where continuing to stick with Dum Dum Helton is more costly than dumping him. Right now the powers that be are using our loyalty against us. They know despite the moaning and groaning a lot of us will continue to support the team. Only when the coliseum is as empty as Helton's head will we see positive change. The people that are enabling his retention are the ones that are the problem.
