    Um, he's right.

    We talk about it on here ALL THE TIME.

    The stadium is typically filled with a LOT of visiting fans.

    You can call it shade to the fanbase or take it to heart, but he is exactly right.

    went to the Pats game and am going to the Ravens game.

    will never stop going to Titans games but Vrabel should be focused on the Ravens instead of the fans.

    He was asked a question. He was right. If fans cared, buy seats.

    But to GoT’s point, those seats are already bought, then resold/given away to the visitors or just whoever.
    Definitely not reserved for titans fans and the actual owners of those PSLs should take personal blame for comments like this one and the lack of real home crowd advantage.

    Screw that. I've been a fan since the day they moved here. Have only been to one game.

    Why would I pay a friggin fortune for tickets, parking, crap food and overpriced beer when the view of the game is inferior to what I get at home?

    The majority of the NFL revenue comes from tv. Not ticket sales. Nothing but love for those of you who choose to spend your money to go... But that some don't doesnt make us less of a fan.

    It is as GoT has stated. Years ago the front office opted for the easy fix as PSL's became available. They sold in blocks to ticket brokers to keep their sell outs going they like to brag about so much.

    I don't even think it is shade.

    It is just reality. It is a relatively young franchise and a destination city, so you get a lot of other fans. If you are 28 or so and starting to have the time and money to go to games, your first NFL memories as a kid didn't include the Titans. Hockey is different because there wasn't much of a hockey presence in TN, so they didn't have to flip fans from other teams.

    Everyone here talks about it and the team was 4-4 at home and are now 6-3 on the road. Lack of home field advantage doesn't mean the same to the Titans that it means to other teams.

    Enjoy the moment and stop trying to be mad.

    I mean, I share an office with 20 dudes that talk nothing but football - 5 Cowboys fans, 3 Patriots fans, 2 Giants fans, 1 Texans fan, 1 Steelers fan, 1 Colts fan, 2 Broncos fans, 1 Raiders fan, 2 Saints fans, 2 Titans fans.

    We pull from a smaller pool than other teams.

    I'm going to speak impartially here, as regrettably I've been living very far my whole life and haven't had the privilege. And I totally get all the things people say.

    But nonetheless, I've been a die-hard fan my whole life.

    I do remember watching games during the 'Coliseum' era, that stadium was ROCKING... I mean could hear the 'SHAKE' through the TV.

    We were a new team to the city/state, a winning franchise during those early years, with a fun but nasty core group of players, and a leave-battered-and-bruised reputation.

    Then we basically became hot trash, a rudderless franchise for a long time, and fans got fed up, which is their right...

    I also know new generations (kids) tend to follow 'hot' teams, even more then 'hometown', which maybe played a part? Simply talking global sport theme, but as I'm not there I can't say for sure.

    Ultimately, we had, and surely still have, some of the very best fans, and I'm sure they are still there. But its not wrong to demand success from the team you support and finance.

    I did think though we'd get a better turn out, number wise, during that hot streak then we did. But then again, even though not in full numbers, I still 'heard' them and felt that shake when the team gave them reason to.

    I just hope we can return to our old ways, and that will only come with prolonged success. And I'm sure the fans will come out again, b/c its so fun to watch that.

    Just imagine we keep going like we are, I'm sure we'll be back to 60K again :)

    And I will attend a home game or two next year as well, will cost me a fortune, but I'll do my part fellas :)

    @GoT I still that have stuff you sent me from the stadium bro
