Really ? Lower campus was all gone and I had to park by Waul House this season.



not sure which area you are referencing with empty spots but i believe a lot of the passes are given to people who either don't tailgate or don't come to the game

i used to park on lower brighton, was a great set up and good deal. now moved up to comm ave garage and you'll see people pulling in 20 minutes before kickoff


I was talking about the spaces around the old Rec Plex. Lots of empty spaces in that area before the game and I don't think they filled up. BC needs to lower the price for parking and get rid of DBS. The pricing model needs to reflect demand.


Incorrect. Everyone of those spaces is assigned.


So you can confirm all of those spots have been assigned to donors with season tickets? What about Shea? I thought it was pretty empty about 2 hours before kickoff as well. I don't know if it filled up.

Think about it. Those spots on lower campus are for the highest paying donors. They also happen to be the population most likely to be away during Labor Day weekend.

This is a stupid conversation.

I won't pay much attention to a person who no longer attends BC games at Alumni. You are also free to ignore the conversation.

If BC is offering 4 free tickets to season ticket holders for VT, then you know demand is down.

If you have the money to pay for one of those spots (they're pretty expensive), you probably have something better to do on Labor Day Weekend.


Exactly... Those Nantucket reds are going to wear themselves!

Individual ticket demand probably has minimal correlation to season long parking spot demand. There are about 10 spots on Shea now, so that's also a shitty proxy to use. As is a fullness of spots for a home game over Labor Day in the rich guy area of the lot. I'm in the poor person lot, for example, and even our spot was not used. My sole butler didn't even want to go.

Though it may be a conspiracy against something or other.

You should pay attention to a person who no longer attends BC games at Alumni... especially, if he was one of the very guys who had a spot on lower campus that would often go unused.

Did you confirm all of that with Snopes first?

People are acting like we've never had a home game on Labor Day weekend before and therefore there is no comparison. At the end of the day, there is almost always an excuse for lack of attendance and these excuses are teed up nicely for the first three games (half of the home slate). Labor Day, weak opponent/rain, and Friday night game. People think Wake and NCSU are boring too so I guess the only time we can judge attendance will be the FSU game. But it might be cold so maybe we shouldn't judge attendance for that game either.

The issue is you are using the same thought process that leads to believing all the conspiracies you so espouse as fact. Start with a conclusion and work your way back. You may ultimately be right. I have no idea but, then again, neither do you. Given those spots are filled up every year with people who are generally of well to do means, I'm going to go with the safe assumption that they are filled and these people had better things to do that weekend. If they weren't filled up, I imagine BC would do similar "promotions" as individual games of giving people "discounts" to upgrade from, say, Brighton to wherever for a nominal additional donation. To my knowledge, that has not happened.

Try reading my post again and addressing the points. And try to do it without demonstrating butt-hurt about being wrong on the topic of John McCain meeting with terrorists.

I did. You think nobody bought parking by the old Plex. Which one would buy for the entire season. Hence one game does not equate to something not being sold. You are taking a small sample, pulling an IB, and declaring a definite. Please point out (specifically if you can) where I’m wrong.

Maybe they were all at a gamewatch in the Comet Ping Pong basement.

As season ticket holders we didn't even pretend like we'd attend. To much effort for this program. They'd better hope it doesn't rain too hard this weekend.

So you are confused? Imagine my surprise about someone so quick to label someone else a "dumbass" that you can't even remember what you condescendingly type about me.

Sincerely, have a great weekend elvii.

This is a message board. You can't claim any of these things. You do not know me. You and I will never meet. You have no idea what kind of company I keep, who is part of my social circle. Now who is being the dumbass?

Look I don't care. Think whatever you want. Knock yourself out. I don't claim to know anything about you (nor do I care.) So I am not going to label you because I don't know you. Go ahead and think whatever you want about me and (on principle and assumptions) you can stand by an assertion that justifies your derogatory statements. Or, instead of jumping to irrational conclusions based on nothing, you can realize that your insults were unwarranted and you can apologize. Its up to you.
