Game Day Feedback

Post by BethanyCordell » Tue Sep 10, 2019 5:52 pm

Hi everyone,

While we've always had a strong focus on the 'fan experience' at our games, we are moving more towards making data-driven decisions and seeking feedback directly from our fans who attend our games. It's hard for us to take a step back sometimes and view things from the fans' eyes, so please help us out. New this season, we'll be sharing a post-game survey after every home game. We'll meet as a group the week after the game and evaluate what changes we can make to improve your fan experience.

Please take 5 minutes to fill this survey out; we'll give you a $10 off our next home game promo code if you add your email address at the end.

Link: http://bit.ly/GoldRush19Survey

As always, feel free to leave me feedback or suggestions here... most of you aren't shy about that. :)

Go Cats!

That’s a pretty broad statement. I’m sure she’s appreciate specifics.

Yes, I would appreciate specifics. Can you elaborate?

Would it be possible to put the words to our school fight song on the video board when we sing it at the beginning of the game? It would promote school spirit and encourage all to get involved. :D

It would really be nice to have way more replays shown and done more timely.

Not sure but he might be referring to the player introductions just before the game. The wrong name was said for Braydon Konkol. I believe it said Jahque Alleyne twice.

Beside that one mistake, I thought the player intros were awesome. The whole pre-game festivities were incredible. The honorary captains was an awesome touch (and one of our captains was seen helping Sonny off the field by lending his arm - it was a framable moment if caught by a photographer - incredibly classy and character). The rodeo team entry is one of the best in the country.

I did see something on TV today. Instead of flame exploding fireworks which are great for nighttime, there is a similar explosive that places a small colorful burst of colored dust high up in the air. No idea on cost but a number of blue and gold bursts in the air would be awesome.

It would be nice if the quarter stats put up on the scoreboard were big enough for a person to read them.

Couldn't hear the ref. Southeast wind didn't help I suppose.

Yeah, we couldn't hear him in the endzone

I think the game day experience is great Bethany. People say get rid of the cams. I know you cant because those are what advertisers pay for. You cant please everyone on everything. You guys do an amazing job. Thank you for all you do.


Rest In peace dad.

I love the horses! My favorite part actually.

I really like the announcer trying to get the crowd involved on 2nd down by putting up the noise meter. Unfortunately the noise meter is fake, and it was only up there for a Split Second. If we could get a real noise meter that was placed in the stadium and actually measure the noise of our crowd, I think that would help get the crowd behind the team a little better. Third-down speaks for itself, so the noise meter on 2nd down as a great idea. It just needs to be implemented better. The volume from the scoreboard is subpar from the end zone.
Maybe I missed it, but usually they give updates from scores around the Big Sky. I don't believe I heard it during last week's game.

I agree, couldn’t hear the ref in the end zone at all, and what was the third down song? I don’t know what last year’s song was but it was memorable and I felt like it got people pumped up, I kept listening for it and I can’t remember a thing about other, I felt like the flossing thing was a flop but otherwise it was awesome.

I'm an out-of-towner who makes it back for 1 game a year. I have nothing but praise for the work done by Bethany and crew and wish I could attend more games.

My only suggestion is for Cat/Griz weekend, it would be great to have an event Friday night. MSU B-Ball or a concert in the Brick would be fun.

Not simple, by any means, but it is Montana's Superbowl weekend :)

I thought the Gameday atmosphere was fantastic.
The Rodeo Team leading the runout is one of my favorite things every year, and I hope it continues to be a Gameday tradition. Intros were great. I'd love for the music/announcer to be louder. The Spirit of the West band is HUGE now, and does a great job!
Keep up the great work!

I also really like the rodeo team. I was thinking it would be great if we could find a way to show our appreciation. Just spit balling, but if everyone on Bobcat Nation were to donate $20 a year, it would at least feed the horses.

It's after the game but still Game Day, Post game interviews and any other press conference why can't we have the reports use a mic so we can hear the question being asked. So were not trying to figure out what was asked with the answer.
