Judging from my television, at times early in the game the stadium seemed to have a decent number of folks in it. Especially considering a 1 win team was playing in cold weather.

I'm sorry guys but this is the wrong approach. Please do us all a favor and stop going to the game. This is like people complaining about Modern Warfare 2 then you go online and it has the most players of any game ever online. Who will listen to complains if they don't feel threatened by their consumers?

If you want to see Jimmy Clausen checking down and throwing the ball away next year, go to the game. If you want a better product on the field, do us all a favor and stay home.

I would love to go to the games! If I lived a little closer, I would be at every game.

That's easy to say sitting at home mad at the game, but if you have already paid for your PSL's like I have, it is throwing over $100 in the toilet to not show up.

That is the sick beauty of what Jerry Richardson has done to the fan base this year. All but around 7000 of a 73,000 thousand seat stadium are paid for in advance through PSL sales. What was once the catalyst to get an NFL team in Charlotte is now being used to hold hostage the most loyal fans.

My options:

1) Don't pay my ticket invoice in protest and forfeit ~$5000 I paid for 2 PSL's
2) Try to sell my PSL's, which is like trying to sell a house in the current economy and situation with the team being so bad
3) Sell (or give away) my tickets. Only problem in that is only opposing team fans are willing to buy right now.
4) Go to game and get some use out of the $1000+ I paid in advance for season tickets for a team the owner refused to spend money to make competitive

Option #4 really is the only financially sound decision out of a list of undesirable choices. If you mail $100 every game, I will happily stay home

Yeah I guess some are backed into a corner with the whole PSL thing.

That Saints game was ugly though and I imagine it's only going to get worse. When you think you've hit a low point, think again. You can always go a little lower.

people have spent hard earned money on those tickets. Foolish to let it go to waste.

They can go enjoy time w/ friends and family booing.

Fire the coach! Hire Bill Cowher! Jerry's destroying this team so stop going to the games!

Honestly I cannot tell the difference between my Cowboy friends and my Panther friends anymore.

As a paying PSL owner, it's hard to sit at home "in protest" after how much you've paid for the tickets. Your best option is to sell the ticket of course. But that only puts fans back in the seats, which makes guys like you ask why there are people there, and defeats the purpose of any sort of "protest".

If you could somehow magically get everyone not to buy anything at the game the rest of the season, and all leave at half time, that could hurt JR's wallet. Otherwise he has his cash money. Or just get everyone to sell their seats to rival fans and make him look like a complete laughing stock on gameday.

Nail on the head. I'm sorry that following this logic doesn't jive with the revolution that hard core message board enthusiasts want us to follow (who also happen to have zero investment in the team other than their fragile emotions).
