    This isn’t new. This has been happening for years but I’ve never seen it as bad as it is today.

    2 million people live in the Metro Nashville area but there are not 65,000 people who care enough about this team to show up on a Sunday afternoon.

    To contrast here is the Predators fan base. Same market, vastly less popular sport in middle Tennessee.

    How badly has this franchise destroyed their reputation in this market for a football team in the southeast to be unable to fill a 67,000 seat stadium when they are actually competitive?

    You don’t see this around the league even with teams that have been awful for far longer than Tennessee.

    Historically bad teams have a more faithful following than the Titans.

    Franchise needs to prove they care if it wants a fanbase that does.

    This franchise has been a joke for the better part of the decade. One playoff season in the past 11. And it looks pretty clear that this franchise is going backwards again.

    Been thinking about this for a bit - I've been a PSL holder for the past 20 seasons - Nashville was a very different city 20 years ago. We have become a Las Vegas type destination. And with that amazing increase in tourism comes a huge influx of out-of-market interest. I keep thinking about how the "home team" in Las Vegas would fare - Nashville and Las Vegas are major tourist destinations and are far more bound to host a much larger ratio of visiting team fans. Its not surprising to me at all - this is what Nashville has become.

    They filled up the stadium and bought tickets. Still pays off for the Titans

    Sure they will. But today, they paid the money to travel back home disappointed


    Your comparison is bad. You're trying to compare a team on it's way to a championship to a team that most people dont want to waste 200 dollars on. The game day experience is trash unless the team wins big or has a game like this one.


    You forget about the time the Predators almost left Nashville? Or what our crowds were like when we were a winning team?

    Put this team on that level, or the level of a team like the Chiefs, and more people will go to the games.
