Tigers, it's time to band together to prevent a travesty.

Yesterday afternoon my assistant told me I had a call holding from Davis Babb. Figuring he had good news about my request for small batch bourbon as a bar option in our Stadium Suite for 2019-20, I eagerly took the call. What I heard from him though should alarm any Clemson fan.

It seems that D-Rad (that's what his peers call Dan Radakovich) has fallen for the various conspiracies of fear, uncertainty and doubt that have been peddled to him by the bottom-feeding salesmen for stadium security companies, and they've convinced him that we need permanent metal detectors at every Gate in the Stadium for the upcoming season.

Now on the surface, it doesn't seem so bad yet---I assumed that I wouldn't be subjected to this economy class treatment to enter the suite entrance and take the elevator. But it got worse....He has consumed so much security kool-aid that he is also eliminating the Avenue of Champions parking spots. This is obscene! This is preposterous! This shall not stand!

Folks, the biggest crime committed by AOC parkers to date was when my chum Slade Pilkington III got his calendar dates mixed up and wore seersucker pants after Labor Day. We wouldn't allow some terrorist to park amongst us, and if they tried, we would be the first to identify them by their meager buffet spread and lack of quality alcohol.

I realize most of you can't empathize because you don't have the option of parking on the Avenue of Champions. You're happy getting the big box of chicken at Bojangles and an $80 tent and parking in a field somewhere. This isn't about empathy. This is about what's right. I have been donating substantial sums to Clemson for almost 6 years now, and part of that deal was that I would be accorded the status I deserved. This represents a contract ripped in half---a bond broken. We are Clemson...we are better than that. E-mail your IPTAY rep today and let them know that you want me on that Avenue. You need me on that Avenue.

If I'm expected to park my Range Rover in some semi-muddy field next to a gauche fire engine and the drone of generators, my money shall go elsewhere. Godspeed, friends, I pray we get through this.

Yours,
Baron Will

I'm sure Dan will see the advantage of allowing you and your guests the priviledge of outfitting yourselves with M249s and a little training and coordination with L.O. you will surely be counted as an asset. Any terrorist in your sector will be marginalized forthwith.

I'm sure you will be at least as much danger to athletes and bystanders as the young chap in unmarked uniform standing on the corner by the stadium last Saturday with an AR 15. Like Barney, I hope that he only had one bullet.

With the potential revenue loss of parking it may more feasible to just allow fixed bunkers strategically placed amongst the tailgaters to allow a good field of fire. A good hotline number to quickly identify the terrorists and drunken frat boys so as to deploy the mortars and artillery might be a proactive measure also.

I'll forward my ideers to Dan. We'll get this fixed for you.

YEAH. YOU.

I GOT A FEW SUGGESTIONS FOR YOUR MISERABLE, PATHETIC, GOOD FOR NOTHING CLEMSON “FANDOM” – GET THE HECK OUT. WE DON’T WANT YOU.

SAVE YOUR IPTAY DONATIONS. WE’LL DONATE MORE TO COVER IT.

DON’T BOTHER BUYING A TICKET. WE’LL ALL YELL A LITTLE LOUDER.

LEAVE YOUR RANGE ROVER, SILVER PLATTERS, AND LIQUOR DECANTERS. WE'LL GLADLY TAKE YOUR SPOT.

SELL YOUR CLEMSON GEAR ON EBAY. I KNOW A YOUNG KID WHO WOULD ACTUALLY APPRECIATE WEARING IT.

PAWN YOUR CLEMSON RING. NOBODY WANTS TO CLAIM YOU AS A FELLOW ALUMNUS.

DELETE YOUR TIGERNET HANDLE. YOU HAVE NO MORE WISDOM TO GIVE.

AND, MOST OF ALL, FIND ANOTHER ### TEAM TO CHEER FOR. WE’RE BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU.

“ALL IN” ISN’T JUST FOR COACHES AND PLAYERS. IT’S FOR FANS AS WELL. YOU’RE “ALL IN” WIN THE TIGERS WIN REGARDLESS OF THE SCORE BECAUSE A WIN IS A WIN. YOU’RE “ALL IN” WHEN THE TIGERS LOSE BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WE LEARN. YOU’RE “ALL IN”, 110% OF THE TIME BECAUSE THERE AIN’T NO BETTER TEAM TO PULL FOR. SO IF YOU’RE NOT “ALL IN” YOU BETTER BE “ALL OUT” CAUSE DABO, THE PLAYERS, AND THE REST OF US DON’T WANT YOU DRAGGING US DOWN WITH YOUR COMPLAINTS ABOUT US "POOR PEOPLE" RUINING YOUR TAILGATE OR SOME MINOR INCONVENIENCE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF CLEMSON NATION.

YOU AREN’T CLEMSON. SO YOU BETTER BEST BE GETTIN GONE.

So, do you know me? Dude, my toenail clippings have more life experience than you. I'm not an Alumni of Clemson. Just a fan since 1983, and I've held season tickets for several years, but have given most of them away to less fortunate people that frequent the Main Board. Most of the time, I'm overseas somewhere and cannot attend. You were talking about weight gain, I do not care about how big you think you are, or how fat your old lady is. Nobody pulled your chain, and ask for your opinion you troll. I have more respect for my dip spitter than I have for you, and I spit in my dip spitter.

I don't think that fear should dictate how CLEMSON does things.

If you're scared, stay at home and watch the game on your 32" Toshiba 720p flatscreen that was made in 2006. Don't try to bring the real contributors to the program down with your playing to worst case scenarios and emotional whims.

Not to be snide, but responding hastily to emotions is one of the key items that keeps most of society mired in mediocrity.

Perhaps the Carolina Panthers will be more appreciative of the folks who keep the lights on? As you acknowledged, buckets of chicken and the orange tents you see littering the landscape as you drive down Perimeter Road aren't the audience who should be driving the decisions.

They'll one day regret stepping on the toes of the ones who make championships possible. Hint: it's the folks who are having to make these sort of concessions in order to make the proletariat feel safe.

While I get your point. When it comes to breaking contracts Clemson and IPTAY have been at this for years. When IPTAY was started your supposed to get lifetime parking space and your tickets also could be passed down your lineage as long as they donated to IPTAY. Their Contracts were broken just so they can get more MONEY that's it more MONEY. At least your is supposedly security risk

I feel your pain and understand the hurt portrayed in your post. The question is how can a gentleman of such fine taste that enjoys the finer things life has to offer drive around in a POS like a Range Rover? Surely a gentleman that indulges in a fine bourbon has better decision making skills than to purchase a British turd like that. Please get this figured out before I can fully support you and call my IPTAY rep to get his support for you as well. A true Clemson man must be better than that.

This has nothing to do with security.

D Rad drives a Mercedes.

He is specifically targeting your select group of Range Rover driving friends.

Rumor is that it goes back to when he got the job at Clemson and Range Rover would not agree to build him a custom orange Range Rover.

Do not contact Clemson with your issues.

Contact Range Rover to get them to fix the problem they created with the Clemson athletic department.

I am doing my part. I have chosen such a strong boycott that I chose to work a job that won't even let me buy a Range Rover. That way they know I will never buy one!

You started giving in 2013, probably right after the LSU game. I've been a donor through all of the Hatfield years, West years, Bowden years, etc. Went to every game in 1998.

I used to park in a great spot in Lot 2, right near the AOC. Now, I can't even keep my 8 seats that my grandad has kept in the family for 50 years and park out at the Brooks Center even though we've given $500 a year for over 40 years. That was a lot of money.

I feel your pain. It really hurt when the government took away our family peanut and tobacco allotment years ago. Granted, we hadn’t actually farmed it ourselves for 40 years, it still seems like they stole a family heirloom. Not being able to rent that allotment every year has cost my family a fortune. The government just takes and takes from those of us with wealth. Similar to IPTAY in many respects, huh?

This thread was great. It covered plenty of things I enjoy. People not understanding long term deterioration of what makes things great like a bunch of superficially thinking Pavlov's dogs ("Any man willing to trade freedom for security deserves neither"), and trouser snake measuring. At least the original poster was funny in his description of what is going on. Some of y'all are so butthurt people have more than you it is hilarious. If you didn't pick up on the sarcasm of his eliteness I feel sorry for you.

FYI That "quote" is a paraphrasing of something Benjamin Franklin said, but it's taken completely out of context.

"He was writing about a tax dispute between the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the family of the Penns, the proprietary family of the Pennsylvania colony who ruled it from afar. And the legislature was trying to tax the Penn family lands to pay for frontier defense during the French and Indian War. And the Penn family kept instructing the governor to veto. Franklin felt that this was a great affront to the ability of the legislature to govern. And so he actually meant purchase a little temporary safety very literally. The Penn family was trying to give a lump sum of money in exchange for the General Assembly's acknowledging that it did not have the authority to tax it."

Point taken, but my point still applies. Read the rest of the article. Taken out of context or not, there is no such thing as safety. Only the illusion. If there was, prisons wouldn't have murders. Feeling safe and being safe are two different things. But the illusion of safety and freedom are oppositely correlated. Safety didn't make us great. Freedom did. My objection is more of a general thing with society. We believe legislation fixes everything, ignoring the obvious fact that the less overall laws we have had the better off we've been. Outside of a few things that were wrong from the beginning.

But you range rover snobs need to find someting better to complain about.

And metal detectors are cool. They slow things down a little but we get and just need to be patient.

Plus I used a metal detector at the beach one time. They're not so bad once you get used to them.

I got the same notice and fellows, I am in dire need of support. Old Bessy Lou, that's my mule, has been my transportation to the stadium since 1955. She's been pulling that old wagon for all these years and has learned where to go without my having to use the reins. We come well prepared--- plenty of chitlins, cornbread, cold collard sammiches, a bucket of cool well water and a jug of some of the best moonshine one has ever put to their lips.

Can't let old Bessy Lou do without so I throw in a bale of crabgrass hay. My new assignment in now is down in Clemson Bottoms with not a shade tree in sight. Some times those tailgaters throw Bessy Lou some of their crumbs and she will render a beautiful "thank you" bray.

I can't afford to buy tickets so I let the children pet old Bessy Lou and their compassionate parents give me a ticket. That's what I call the Clemson Spirit. I joined IPTAY but my $2.00 donation per year doesn't grant me any privileges but I still go to the games and yell like a Gamecock does over a moral victory because I love the Tigers.

There's one thing I've learned over my more than 97 years, people's true character is revealed in how they respect all people and when they give, they give in silence. And when one gives in silence, it confuses the IRS.

+1 TRUTH !!!

Most people don't realize a million dollars doesn't go as far as it used to. Have you priced an Aston Martin car, a Patek Philippe gold watch, champagne and foie gras, lately. Don't get me started on fine art, a work by Mark Rothko of blurry red, pink and blue rectangles fetched $75m.

Now if they would put a helicopter pad on the lawn of Fort Hill, these issues could be put to rest.

I am an Upper Deck Poors and I drive my Dodge Grand Caravan to every game. This beast of burden carries all my gear, hooch, orange tent with minimal patch tape and grill with accessories. I love my school and give even when broke as h3ll with credit card bills. I hate metal detectors and they sucked at ACC Championship game. I hope the "sustainers" get all they deserve at every home game in their suite. Seriously I do. Me and my family will enjoy each sun soaked day in upper deck, broke as h3ll and screaming our tails off for da Tigers! And by the way, us Upper Deck Poors don't sit until half time! Go Tigers!

Now that there was funny, then again maybe not so!!! Now I do understand that the folks that has done well for them selves and have made or has a lot of money. It's understandable they want to buy the best for them selves and their family. Honestly, if I had it like that, I would spend some it for the better comforts in life for myself and family as you should. But if you think you can get help from the less fortunate by flaunting what you have, you don't know us common folk very well at all, and you have failed miserably!!! In today's world, safety should always come before your status in life of what you do or don't have in the bank, or where you live, or what you drive, or how much you have invested in the stock market. Personally, I won't ever have to again worry about some self righteous idiot blowing me to bits in any stadium ever again bc I'm not able to maneuver in or around the home or away game atmosphere ever again but, my heart would forever be crushed if any fan, (especially a Clemson fan) of college FB were ever hurt or killed bc of the lack of security in and around the venues that families go to cheer for their favorite college sports... So lighten Nancy, the safety of everybody must come before the comfort that your fortunes can afford you or anyone else!!! Go Tigers, and Go DRAD, make our stadium as safe as necessary for all fans that visit Death Valley no mater what they drive, or regardless of the comforts they may lose for the sake of safety first and foremost!!! Sincerely, allorangeallthetime52

Honestly Im with you because then y'all make everyone else have to pay more for their current spots. plus WHY in our lords name would some one look at the long lines at panther stadium and think, "yeah I want some of that here" we already have to wait long enough and the longer I can stay at my tailgate before kickoff before heading in the more (cheap) beer and corn hole I can get in. My PBRs need to be drank dagum it.

But in all seriousness NFL lines take an inordinate amount of time for all the games I've been to and I will be less than thrilled at the time it takes to get to my seats if it increases even ten more minutes. Because we pay to watch a game not for a line simulator 2k19 edition.

I would suggest you buy a nice high $$$$ Range Rover golf cart, hire a chauffeur to drive you and you guest over to the elevator entrance then you can pull out the wad of cash tip the chauffeur before heading up to your luxury box in time for kick off. If that will not work just call Uber!

I will take the muddy field with some of the best Clemson fans ever who will share their food and drink with a genuine Tiger hospitality! ??

Yesterday afternoon my assistant told me I had a call holding from Davis Babb. Figuring he had good news about my request for small batch bourbon as a bar option in our Stadium Suite for 2019-20, I eagerly took the call. What I heard from him though should alarm any Clemson fan.

It seems that D-Rad (that's what his peers call Dan Radakovich) has fallen for the various conspiracies of fear, uncertainty and doubt that have been peddled to him by the bottom-feeding salesmen for stadium security companies, and they've convinced him that we need permanent metal detectors at every Gate in the Stadium for the upcoming season.

Now on the surface, it doesn't seem so bad yet---I assumed that I wouldn't be subjected to this economy class treatment to enter the suite entrance and take the elevator. But it got worse....He has consumed so much security kool-aid that he is also eliminating the Avenue of Champions parking spots. This is obscene! This is preposterous! This shall not stand!

Folks, the biggest crime committed by AOC parkers to date was when my chum Slade Pilkington III got his calendar dates mixed up and wore seersucker pants after Labor Day. We wouldn't allow some terrorist to park amongst us, and if they tried, we would be the first to identify them by their meager buffet spread and lack of quality alcohol.

I realize most of you can't empathize because you don't have the option of parking on the Avenue of Champions. You're happy getting the big box of chicken at Bojangles and an $80 tent and parking in a field somewhere. This isn't about empathy. This is about what's right. I have been donating substantial sums to Clemson for almost 6 years now, and part of that deal was that I would be accorded the status I deserved. This represents a contract ripped in half---a bond broken. We are Clemson...we are better than that. E-mail your IPTAY rep today and let them know that you want me on that Avenue. You need me on that Avenue.

If I'm expected to park my Range Rover in some semi-muddy field next to a gauche fire engine and the drone of generators, my money shall go elsewhere. Godspeed, friends, I pray we get through this.

It has been a long time since I’ve read something like this post. Silly me thought that Clemson fans were different - that we were the salt of the earth supporting kids who were getting a chance to play sports and get a great education. “My assistant” “Range Rover”and your reasons for giving - to help you. You may want to spend some time with the less fortunate and help them. 5000 in foster care in SC. Go to a women’s shelter or better yet go to Miracle Hill and help the men there. Perhaps you could change a life.
