I feel EXACTLY the way you do Count regarding the decline in my enthusiasm since the 2021 Grey Cup loss. For the last 25 years I've had my seasons tickets with two similar aged friends and we all question the same things. Does our lack of enthusiasm involve getting older and that we're just a bunch of miserable old men or are we just generally fed up how this team is run? This season was brutal to go through but I attribute that to the fact the Stein regime was brought back intact so you kind of expected what was coming. After our free agent signings, which most fans were generally excited about, my hopes were raised slightly. Once the annual slow start to the season began you knew what was coming and it was back to WTF. If Stein is brought back for 2024 (there is no way I can stomach another season of him) we are all considering to not renew seasons tickets and maybe go to some select games if we feel it is worth it. Friends of ours always buy the cheapest seats outside the stadium on game days and once inside the stadium they sit in good seats that are open through out the stadium. Sadly this might be the best way to go.
Downright scary how almost identical this is to my situation. Literally word for word. Has to be a lot more like us as well. Wonder if the franchise realizes this...or cares?
Do you also sit with others who are also contemplating on bailing. I hope this organization isn't misreading the fan base.

Posted this on the Prowl, but Naylor tweeted that Milanovich has had a deal to be our OC for 2024 ever since he returned to take over from Condell. Now, if only they'd turf Stein, bring in Barker, make Milanovich HC as well & let him choose his own staff...but I haven't believed in Santa Claus for 50 years.
