Man you guys are brutal...........myself, my family , my friends all wear Tribe shirts in the summer, we go to some games and we watch as many as we can......we root , we cheer,
What do y'all expect? Cleveland has a very high unemployment rate.......going to the stadiam, put the cost of the ticket aside, 20 bucks to park,,,,, 4 something for a soda,,,,,8 something for a hot dog....PEOPLE CANT AFFORD IT
BUT , dont say we dont care,,,,,,omg, thats just crazy for me to hear cuz Everyone I know at work, home and whatever are HUGE CLEVELAND SPORTS FANS............
"People can blame the Dolans, the weather, the browns. But at the end of the day, baseball has been facing a generation of people who dont really enjoy or "get" the sport. people scoff at the idea of 162 game season. Thats the beauty of baseball tho. Nearly every day i can watch my tribe, it gives me something to do, and during the boring summer, the tribe can give me memories and entertainment, and pride."
You nailed it right on the head! I've been thinking myself that people in this area just don't like baseball. It's sad, but true. I LOVE baseball first, and because of that, I am also a Tribe fan. I always state it like this. If there were a professional rugby league in America, and Cleveland had a team, would I cheer for them? No. Why? Because I don't know or like Rugby! That's why I don't follow basketball and football anymore. Because I really don't even like the sports. Baseball is the greatest game/sport EVER created! But Northeast Ohioans don't get it. (For the most part)
im not buying the People cant afford it excuse. I am a college student with little to no money to my name. if you play your cards right, you can get parking for 5 bux, at worst 10. tickets are 7 or 8 bux a pop. dont buy the expensive seats, because you can just sneak into those sections due to the emptiness of the park. and why would you buy food and drinks at the stadium???? just eat dinner before the game at a restaurant or at home. bring water and peanuts (or anything else if you have a purse or bag) and you will be fine. People are just going crazy on spending. You need to learn to control yourselves. Its irrational to buy food at the stadium, its overpriced. People are constantly suc.kered into buying it, but its really easy to control yourself.
People cant afford the tribe? yet they can afford the browns??? the browns cost wayyyy more yet they are selling out even when they are unwatchable. i may be brutal, but its true. there arent quality fans in the seats, as few fans as there are. ive been to other stadiums like wrigley and they are smart fans who have real, vested interest in their team even though their team is garbage. yet in c town people are not really watching too closely. Im fine with a family taking their kids to a game, but when thats the main audience, and the tribe turn the game into a childish event, its annoying and pathetic. The Cavs have a fairly annoying presentation, but it gets you pumped up. The indians are all about kids and family, and its made it uncool to root for the team. People in their 20s like me get very demoralized by the tribe. not because of failure but because of their presentation. and they continue to try to get rid of cheif wahoo. how am i supposed to support my team when i know they are trying to slowly rid themselves of their identity? all of this adds up and makes tribe baseball suffer.
10 bucks and you can stand on the Home Run porch and watch with a great view.
Besides, you don't have to go to every single game - just get out there once in a while.
Plus, you don't HAVE to buy beer or food.
