    When I signed up for Coli redo fee I was told could keep old seats, haha.Guess my rep lied to me. I paid in full Coli redo fee & ended moved 25 yds to the 5 yd line. My family gave me heck all last season. Still rooting for team & hope they can win despite Clay. When I told my son about being told to get off campus while watching summer workout with GarryP he said why are you donating $$$ . I finally agreed with him. Fight On

    As you know, that's exactly what happened to me only I had bumped up my donations to include becoming a Galen Founder and went from C&G to Committee....moved my seats further toward the endzone. And that was after Ron promised that wouldn't happen.

    Recall you telling me how you increase booster dues & got moved at Coli . One old alum sat on 40 now his C&G gets him on goal line. SC knows how to screw long time alums.

    A because I am hoping helton is fired after this season, win or lose. When this happens I keep my great seats and we finally have a winning coach with a winning team.

    Wow! I didn't know they were screwing with season ticket holders that badly. What a shame. You treat people badly and eventually you will get what you deserve.....half full Coliseum with a bunch of pissed off fans.

    Resigned from the Trojan Athletic Fund and did not renew our tickets. After over 30 years and being relocated so we lost sitting with people that were like our family I just can't support a Clay Helton team. Tired of going to games at 6 & 7 at night. I wish the team well and when Helton goes I will rejoin. For me I felt I wanted to put my money where my mouth was (or withholding my money).

    Renewed. Love our new seats (next to tower, in the shade, complete view). Like the direction the coaching staff is headed minus Clay. Hoping that the recruiting year isn't as bad as thought to be, and hoping that we get back on track the following season. I really didn't want to lose our seats, so in it for another year.

    Fight on!

    (B) I decided not to renew my season tickets and here’s why.

    Afraid that if there’s an increase in season ticket holders USC would give Helton another contract extension

    The real problem is that even as many re-think not renewing or attending games enough aren't won't be attending games in the new 70,000 seat Coliseum may be even more obvious watching on TV and certainly will be more obvious to the University's financial staff.

    That wasn't my experience. I've stayed at C & G Premier for a few years. My seats actually improved a bit, although I used to have 8 and now they only sell me 4.

    Option A. 20th year. I don't know why, must be out of habit. Still enjoy taking my daughters to the games. It's not like I can improve my seat location by being one of the few that renews. This is the first year that my group talked about NOT renewing and just buying tickets to select games on Stubhub.

    That's exactly right Denali.

    I was choice D: having gone to away games and used the secondary market, but now I am B: since the shit show got worse and they TAF people treated us like we were stupid morons. In fact, they made it real hard to ever think about coming back since we lived through both Paul Hackett and Pete Carroll times. Basically, if I'm to return to TAF and season tickets, it's Urban Meyer or someone commensurate with his skill set or forgeddaboudit.

    In order to keep my seats they wanted me to double the number. But they didn't take me seriously when I said if Hellton were retained I would quit altogether. And that wasn't this year but the previous year. I can only imagine what they'd demand this time around. They simply don't deserve it, especially after the way Ron Orr lied to us about a coaching change to keep us.

    If you’re who I think you are ... I was there to witness that shameful act from the security guards. I recall your wife and child patiently sitting under the tent while you tried to Deescalate and resolve the matter. I had a nice conversation with you and your wife. It was a terrible ordeal to go thru and such a “turn-off” for a fellow alum. Unfortunately, my brother and I will not be renewing our 4 season seats after 13 years. I cannot tolerate The product on the field compounded by the Mistreatment of the Trojan Family. Fight On!
