To the editor:
A lot has already been said regarding certain local businesses organizing a "boycott" of the upcoming Kansas-Missouri football game at Arrowhead Stadium. Never mind that the Kansas University Athletic Department managed to schedule six home football games in addition to the game in Kansas City.
Never mind the fact that anybody that is stubborn enough to support this "boycott" has already paid their money to the athletic department. Never mind the fact that people will still pack local bars in droves to watch (and drink) as Kansas potentially plays toward its first Big 12 championship game.
The most sickening thing to me is that the Jayhawks are doing something this season that nobody around here has ever seen before, and these people are going to eat their tickets (that have already been paid for, remember) because of pure stubbornness. I don't have the means to buy tickets because I don't have the disposable income, but if I did, I'd sure as hell hate to look back at such a historic season and think that I gave up the opportunity to watch KU fight their way to an undefeated season. Or worse yet, that while my money supported the athletic department, I sat on my duff back home and did not support my football team.
Go ahead and stay away from Arrowhead, but give your ticket to someone who will show up to support this team.
