that it's Oct. 8th and we have no more Saturday home games left for the season. I knew before the season started that's how it was but it just really hit home this morning.

Welcome to the MAC!! My season tickets are really collecting dust this year. Season's over for me as far as attending games.

Perhaps we will see you in Detroit if we are fortunate and talented enough to win the West.

We made one game with our season tickets. That number isn't going to change the rest of the season either.

Just to clarify, this is a MAC issue, (defintely) not the preference of NIU.

It’s not just a MAC issue... pac12 is complaining about kickoff time not day but a similar issue. And Herbie is here to assure them that they should be thanking ESPN

It is sad. I made the the home opener against BC and would make a few more if the games were on Saturday.

Last year's game against the Turds in Chicago was a travesty; I wanted to make a long weekend out of that game, but it wasn't going to happen on a Thursday night. There'd have been at least 20K if it had been on a Saturday afternoon.

I am an NIU FB TV and internet fan, like the vast majority (who are under-represented) on this board.
The future of NIU FB might well be TV and more specifically with the new generation , most likely the internet.
Hopefully Television revenue will grow greatly and generate far more money than ticket sales.
National TV audiences for NIU and the rest of the MAC, may have advantages for namebrand and possibly recruiting.

Of course, if you're out of town you'd be a big fan of TV and internet. Those of us who live locally would rather go to the games.

TV revenue will not grow greatly. Even if it increases, it will never replace the fans and their donations that are lost for good.
