Watch the game then… I’ve literally never been to sporting event and not been able to watch the game based on what promotion was going on

Poor poor HHT. The upside is when he stays away the rest of us can enjoy it more.

This is dumbest reason I have ever heard for not buying season tickets.

Are you from Memphis? Wrestling is in our DNA

Born and raised. Jackie Fargo was my first childhood hero. I was quite disappointed to find out it was fake. That was about 60 years ago.

Jackie Fargo was my childhood Saturday morning wrestling hero as well. He was the good guy, Lawler was the bad guy and there were lots of fun characters as a supporting cast. I think I was over it by the time I was 10 and got into real sports.

I had Jackie Fargo speak in one of my classes at the University. When he was asked if wrestling was fake he rolled up his pants leg and showed all the scars (some of which were from compound fractures) and said non of those were fake.

No way

BTW, I'm sure Jackie got those scars and injuries from a bit too much Roughhousing with his brother.

Jackie father used to make Jackie and Roughhouse fight when they were kids to toughen them up.

Can you please share with us smarter reasons you have heard

1. Can't afford it.
2. Health reasons
3. Moved away
4. That pesky pandemic.

All better reasons than a half time rassillin match. I honestly can't remember when I have stayed in my seat at half time. You miss all the good scenery in the concourse.

Spot on. JSW doesn’t have much in the brain power department. You must not have paid any attention to his posts previously. LOL!!

The site however waits with great anticipation of your next and every post. I bet your brain is so large you wear a 10 gallon hat . People on this site aspire to be like you

Thanks buddy. Didn't realize you were a fan.

They have had Deangelo Nascar car giveaway, Tiger Helmet giveaway, Liberty Bowl Replica Giveaway. I would think Bobblehead nights, T-shirt giveaways, Throwback jerseys, etc. would draw more fans than "wear blue" games. How about a Tiger greats series of Bobbleheads where they bring back a Tiger great and honor them during the game. Deangelo, Wimprine, Isaac Bruce, Anthony Miller, Tony Pollard, D Henderson, Jake Elliott, Russell Copeland, Gatty, Paxton, etc. etc. Even coaches like Chuck Stobart, Fuentes, Norvell, Scherer, and maybe even assistants like Mike Tomlin and Randy Fichtner could have honorary nights.

A guy near our section dressed like Rick Flair on a Halloween game, I’m sure many of you saw him too, and if I remember correctly, he got on the Jumbotron

He has to be in heaven anticipating this

Whoooooo!

Maybe you will change your mind after having tickets for 40 years or so. I'm just too old to keep up with you young whippersnappers.

03-old

I am on the so side of having season tickets and I still say it is the dumbest reason to give up your season tickets. I have seen to many Memphis State and University of Memphis games where I was glad and the other 3,000 fans at game were also glad that they had a Theme for the game. I have my season tickets for this for this season and can't wait for it to start.

If you read my first post you would have learned, if your reading comprehension is above 3rd grade, that it was one of the reasons. I have also mentioned a couple of others. Good luck to you.

I would like to see more bobbleheads.
One of the best I have is the Gostkowski bobble head which also features a bobble leg.
