Guest viewpoint: FSL supports ACFC stance on athletics negotiations



Dear Eric Roedl,

We, the elected leaders of Fraternity and Sorority life, support the ACFC and the ASUO in their efforts to negotiate a fair deal for students and Athletics when it comes to student football and basketball tickets. We firmly believe, given the increase in tuition costs next year, that students as a whole cannot afford to pay more money for the same number of football tickets that we received last year. We believe that the current allocation of football tickets is already too small and that you, as the Athletic Department, should be working to increase the number of students at our football games. It was disappointing to see that an increase in student football tickets was never on the table during your negotiations.

We wholeheartedly support all of our athletic teams and take great pride in our university programs. However, reducing the number of subsidized tickets hinders the participation of our members. We believe that every student should have the opportunity to attend games at their own university. Students and the Athletic Department both benefit by having a consistently large, boisterous student section at games. In fact, the environment created by students at Autzen Stadium is part of what makes our football program so great.

Currently, there are students on this campus that have failed to get a ticket to every single football game because of the limits you’ve placed on the number of tickets we are allocated. This is unacceptable and we demand change.

Please reconsider your stance and do not reduce the number of subsidized student football tickets for next year.

Sincerely,
