Subject: Gate FB's modern niche should be as reinvented "Road Warriors"
In reply to: Gate Raider 's message, "Re: Playoff Bid" on 11/27/15 8:21:13pm Fri

Not a persuasive argument to me that other PL teams also face diminishing attendance. Advertising to Cuse and Utica markets is a waste of money. With a history of being "Road Warriors,"it's logical to go to where the fans are, ala, as an example, 'gate 80's list. This could be offset to some extent, by trying to make the Cuse game an every three year affair. ( It's a super home game for the increasing # of alums living around the country and the world. )

Be bold! Treat our unique circumstances within a national trend as an opportunity!
