The Forum should be a fun place to work tomorrow.

Woof. There was nothing remotely redeemable or positive about that game.

Unfortunately, this is why I refused to get my hopes up coming into the season. Grit and Grind light won’t work against good teams. This team just isn’t elite on the defensive end anymore. They aren’t even looking middle of the pack tonight.

After a year of filming, this is the end scene I had always hoped I would get. I'm so happy for the people of Columbus, for the fans of the Columbus Crew and for the movement. I have goosebumps being here for it

And the ones like me will watch on TV so we can still catch our team’s games. There is no way I would miss watching a big LSU game on TV to go to the Liberty Bowl. I hate to admit that, but it’s true.

More people should have Grizz games when they started winning in the 00s, too. It takes more than a few winning seasons to grab people’s attention. A lot of those people you are talking about won’t even know Memphis is playing, much less who.

But again. Look at UAB. South Alabama. USM. Toolame. The other Louisiana schools. None draw over 30-40k. That is how non-P5 will always be in the South. Memphis averaging 40-50k would a ceiling in SEC country. That’s just how it is.

I agree with you there. It will take years to build a real football culture. I grew up with all the mediocrity and losing, so I’m happy they are having success, but it will take more time.

I can count on one hand the number of Memphis fans I know that consider them their primary football team. Everyone else either prefers another program, or like me, is from here but went to another school. SEC schools don’t have this problem.

If Memphis fans dominated this city, I would agree. They don’t. Not even close. Like me, most Tiger fans have divided loyalties. I go to a game when I can, but I am watching LSU in an SEC matchup over going to any Memphis game.

Meh. Look at any other program in the same neighborhood as multiple SEC programs. None of them draws at a P5 level. Even UCF has a relatively small on-campus stadium. You will never have the same level of support outside the P5 aside from BYU and a couple of others.

I know it’s off topic, but my 81 year old Mom drives a Challenger, so it could happen.

The Pels have local ownership. That’s currently the ONLY thing they have going for them, but as with the Hornets, it may be enough to keep them where they are.

Seattle STILL won’t building a new arena for a team. Memphis stepped up and did it when it had to be done. The end.

Again, an ownership group that is looking for the door isn’t investing millions of their own money in their building and commissioning long term plans and studies. These are blind assumptions, not facts.

I can’t give details, but I can tell you this with absolute certainty- The Grizzlies are putting a lot of their own money into the Forum at the moment, and have a solid, well-researched long term plan for the building. You don’t do that if you are looking for an exit.

Got to see that cool Memphis Madness floor when they were putting it out at the Forum two days ago. Couldn’t take pics, though. Gotta play by the rules.
