    Gripes about Cyclone fans.

    I know I am not the first to comment on these, but at my last game for awhile I must comment....

    1. Do we know how a parking lot works? Today was not icy, I can excuse bad parking when you can't see the parking lot lines, but when it is completely clear and people are still parking so others can't even drive through the lot, thats just ridiculous.

    2. Stay for the game or leave. It has always been like clockwork that people go stand in the middle area before the game ends... we need to put up higher walls so people stop doing that... If you want to get in your car earlier... go do it.. its annoying to sit there and wait.

    3. When leaving the game feel free to "follow the flow". I wanted to punch some guy and his wife today when they were trying to but past everyone. You aren't in any more of a hurry than everyone else, live with it. I mean seriously, your time ISNT any more valuable than anyone elses, so why try to pass everyone and make their exit time longer? Settle the 'F' down!

    Others add more if the feel necessary

    Don't even get me started on the people who feel the need to watch the last few minutes from the concourse. HAVE FUN GETTING TO THE PARKING LOT 30 SECONDS BEFORE 12,000 OTHER PEOPLE! I'm sure you get home so much sooner, jerk-offs!

    Re: Gripes about Cyclone fans.

    This thread just sickitates me. People trying to escape the confines of the parking lot are just dumb, sometimes.

    Kudos to the great majority of parkers who "get it" and patiently await their turn to go.

    Sometimes, some people drive so stupid, I fear for the safety of the guys directing traffic.

    Re: Gripes about Cyclone fans.

    I work 3rd shift (overnight). Those evening games during the week are right before I go to work. I've called that another reason not to race to the car

    Plus, I really like staying for the whole game that I paid for.

    Like I have said before:WINNING CURES EVERYTHING!! If K-State and the GREAT BEAZ would have went down yesterday I surmise that YOU would have felt a lot better about the petty annoyances getting out of the parking lot etc etc...

    Winning its the only way to go boys!!!

    these issues are non-issues if/when the team wins...

    This will be fixed in HIlton's renovation where they will add "luxury boxes" to that area. From what I understand that walkway will cease to exist and you walk through the doors directly to your section once this is complete. So if you really don't like it. Donate and get this done.

    Re: Gripes about Cyclone fans.

    I thought parking was a major pain yesterday... For one thing nobody was letting anyone else in...

    I really don't have a problem with people leaving early... it doesn't hurt anything.

    And yes... I hate it when people don't go with the flow and try to budge past.

    Actually I've watched even more fans leave if we were winning with a minute to go... the game was wrapped up so they headed out. STAY AND CHEER YOUR TEAM OFF THE COURT!!! They just busted their ***es for you, show them your appreciation, not your back.


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,

    I 've had that problem before... particuarly with the older fan base (sorry if thats stereotyping... but when I was at Wellsfargo last year for the game we played there no one would let me out. I watched older people even go so far as to inch right up to the bumper of the cars in front of them to keep me from getting into the line, to the point where they were drawing the exhaust of the car in front of them into their car - literally posoining themselves just to keep others from getting into line)

    Yesterday someone was very nice to me and let me in almost right away but... that certainly hasn't always been the case

    I made a point to let one person from each adjacent drive my entire way out... I didn't see much else of that happening.

    I think part of this was due to the track meet being held at Lied, they had teams park their busses and fans park at the commuter lots and ran shuttles to/from Lied on Beach. And weren't there a ton of school busses in the lots that day?

    I remember we parked in the lot on the east side of the Jake so it was a bit of a walk but when the game was over, we just took a right out of the lot and took the frontage road in front of the stadium down to the light and missed all the traffic. If it's a crowded lot for a men's game we usually park there at the Jake so we can avoid the traffic

    Re: Gripes about Cyclone fans.

    These are endemic to ISU fans alone, these are PEOPLE problems. These things happen at Hy-Vee, the mall or at funerals. It happen everyone. Some people are just rump-holes.
