What will it take to get you to come to PBS in 2012?

We are all well aware that most of the home games for our beloved Cincinnati Bengals did not sell out this year and fans cited a multitude of reasons for the 20,000+ empty seats for all but 2 of the 8 regular season games played at PBS. The economy, Mike Brown, and ticket prices were just a few of those reasons and each one presents a reasonable argument as to why fans stayed away in droves and a sea of green seats could be seen stretching across the upper level of PBS for most of the season.

Interstingly enough, this could be one of the most telling seasons of Mike Brown's reign over professional football in Cincinnati. The Kool-Aid is oh so sweet to taste right now as it seems like the Bengals are doing all the right things. Good drafts the last few years. An openness to work with the city with the recent development of the new practice and playing fields. Lowered ticket prices. All of these factors seem to be a shift in the traditional dysfunction of the Bengals. So, are we all fools falling for the trap to pour our hard earned money into the team only to eventually revert back to lowered expectations or are the times a changin' round here?

Personally, I am excited about the future of the Cincinnati Bengals and I think that most fans would agree that we have a great core of players and something good is happening. However, are the recent changes enough to get you to come out and support the team at the stadium? I have developed a tremendous passion for going to PBS and feel there is nothing better than being at the stadium to see everything unfold live, to hear the roar of the crowd and feel the energy of the stadium. Others will disagree and prefer to stay home to watch the game rather than pay for parking, battle traffic and deal with the drunken fans fighting amongst each other......and I completely understand that reasoning too. Some fans just prefer to watch the games from the comfort of their home. From the recent comments I have read on CJ it appears that there is hesitation from fans to jump completely on board and after the last 20 years I have to say that it is certainly warranted.

So I ask you Bengals nation......What will it take to get you to PBS in 2012? I'm sure I missed some other reasons in the poll so let's hear what you have to say.
