Anyone interested in getting a Bullspen Table together?

Sorry if my comment hit you wrong, but IMO only having a weekday luncheon eliminates a lot of people. Have 2 events in Tampa, one during the week and one on Saturday and most people would be able to attend at least one. 

There is an event that next Saturday but it is for Iron Bulls. 

An event in downtown on the weekend?  You can't get people to go to Ray Jay on a weekend with a game being played.  But, seriously, as someone mentioned this is geared toward businesses located and business people that work downtown trying to stir up interest in that community.  Corporate sponsors are needed.

What about the 95% of USF fans who can’t donate at that level.

They can take the cheaper path of taking the half day off, seek employment that has more flexible hours or determine a lunch time event isn’t that horribly important to them, there are no solutions in life only trade offs

I think there are events for alumni and fans on weekends or weeknights.  Maybe Im wrong

I’ll have to look into those events. Not trying to start things with people, just feel like USF sometimes overlooks their average fan in their pursuit of $$$. I may not be able to donate 10k plus a year, but I do what I can and bleed green and gold.

Or we can stop supporting USF.

Or that but it’s kind of hard for them to have every event be tailored to every groups personal needs. Some people work days, some people work nights, some people travel, some people work weekdays, some people work weekends, some people don’t work, some people require child care, some people like Saturday morning games, some like evening, not sure anyone likes afternoons, some can make weekday games work, some find it easier to get the away games….

This event is targeting a specific type of customer that is downtown more than likely a business and going to bring a table of clients or coworkers that would be less likely to make it on the weekend, why is this event so special that it must be replicated on the weekend or why are people that can’t make it so special that they should have it on the weekend and not have something for the people they are targeting for the event?

If we start playing the spring game or actual games on weekdays during business hours that maybe an issue that is negatively impactful to fandom but I don’t think this should reach that level for most. I have not been to a USF-UCF game since we stated playing them on Black Friday but I hardly anticipate they should change it simply because the game doesn’t work for me. 

I love a reason to be outraged and complain about USF athletics as much as anyone but I just don’t see a way to be outraged about this, if anything it’s the kind of thing they should be doing.

I want to know why the last Saturday event with zero cost of entry and free lunch items had maybe 10 people not associated with the event and probably half of them were @BDYZR ‘s family.

Perhaps the problem is the pool of people looking to spend money on having lunch at a USF event on their Saturday isn’t quite large enough to merit trying to have it, but historically we have created events where our coaches or others will show up if someone wants to test the market.

What if maybe it’s actually as simple as the former players and others being asked to attend don’t want to give up a Saturday afternoon on a USF lunch? Are they required to give up more to create equality in the events or will it be just as satisfactory if just the head coach is there?

Some people may not be able to walk to the event and break Shabbat on a Saturday others may not be willing to go on the Sabbath on Sunday so I’m starting to thing maybe we just shouldn’t have any events if we can not have the exact same events at infinite times to accommodate people that do not think the event is important enough to make accommodations in their schedules for but want to go bad enough that the market would be there for an endless amount of lunches.
