‘Cut the Tiger’s balls off’
I am dissatisfied with Towson University’s athletics fees. I have $80 in my pocket that theoretically has to pay for food until January.
I am financially independent of my parents and it will be staying that way.
I never go to the games, and have no desire to do so. Why is it that I must pay nearly $400 extra to attend Towson University? I see two relatively small groups at the moment protesting about their funding being cut in favor of another but the census is forced to support this system regardless.
I would prefer the fee was a general fund that pooled the resource and divided it up to the departments based on demographics than paying for Towson to have an NCAA rating or a new stadium. Or let’s try this – let’s democratize the process.
Hand everyone his or her $399 back and if you want to support Towson’s Athletics pay for a game, buy a jersey, or donate the money right back. It would be interesting to see how much support these teams have then.
The Athletics Department would be the biggest opponent of this since it is well aware that the majority of the student body, while it does have a great deal of sympathy, does not actually support sports.
But until then I have to find a job to toil in so someone I never met can have a cut field and a pristine uniform.
In short, I wish we’d just cut the Tiger’s balls off.
