The title and poll say it all. Do you stay and soak it in until the cleaning crew comes out or are you leaving early and trying to beat traffic?

I can’t remember ever leaving an A-State football game early....ever.

I leave Ole Miss games early because I’m there for my wife and not so much that I care.

Can’t imagine leaving any problem game early.

It's always a treat to get to a game, so I never leave early.

Living in MT, all we have really are college sports. Those I can stay or leave, doesn't really matter to me unless it's a playoff game of some sort or the Griz/Cat rivalry game. Whenever I've had the chance to see professional sports, especially my teams, I stay until the very end no matter what. I don't get to experience that very often so I will take it all in to the very last second.

I will leave the game early most of the time, regardless of how the game is going.

It's a traffic issue for me. I don't want to be stuck in it. The idea of being stuck in traffic longer than normal, just does not appeal to me at all.

I have before for all different reasons, but it is definitely the exception.

I got the other way. Usually last one out. Keeps traffics to a minimum and I don’t miss anything.

traffic is a beast with the philly teams....so if the phils are killing them or getting killed i might leave early to avoid the 2+ hours of traffic. but i really like staying until the end

Same here. I have never left a game early with one exception. My wife and I were given Ball State football game tickets one time when we lived up there. It was a Thursday night game, cold as hell and they were getting blown out. We left at the end of the third quarter. I'm an Ohio State fan anyway so Ball State wasn't doing much for me anyway.

That’s part of my mentality. My wife gets angry or embarrassed (I can’t tell) when I start yelling “free baseball!” or whatever event we’re at if it goes into extra time.

When you write "The Game", that refers to only one game. And in recent history, my team can't win. Still, I never leave early, nor turn it off even in a bloodbath. Win loose or draw, there are only so many chances to watch your team play.

The Team. The Team. The Team.

If I paid for the ticket, I don't.

More and more as time passes, I don't even care to think about going to a live game anymore.

Up until about 8-10 years ago, hardly ever. Since then, it has increasingly depended on my interest in the game, which has dwindled, and what else I could be doing. In the last couple of years, it is as likely as not that I drive or walk the 2 miles to the stadium.

It's all about circumstance - Monday night game with work on Tuesday, I am out of there. Monday night game with off on Tuesday, let's get another round...

Well, not never because I have left early, but generally I stay to the bitter end.

Being that we have to drive 4 hours for professional sports we usually stay till the end. For local h.s. & college I usually wind up leaving early to take care of the dog.

I haaaaaaate leaving a game early.

but the rest of my family will gladly leave early. Here’s an example.
Couple years ago, my father in law gets tickets to the Ohio State-Penn State football game in Columbus. Amazing tickets, pregame meal, etc.. it’s cold cold. While I am not an OSU fan, I love sports and loved this atmosphere.

So it’s me, my wife, and her parents. Early second half, they are really starting to get cold, and so is Ohio State’s playing. Penn State starts to run away with it, and the grumbling starts, and we end up leaving.

Now, I love my in-laws dearly. But I was sooooo salty as we are driving back to their house, listening to the game on the radio, as Ohio State starts their comeback in what was likely the game of the year in college football.

i haaaate leaving early.

It might not make you feel better, but my wife has an equal and opposite story. She and her family (Giants fans) stayed to the bitter end of the Miracle at the Meadowlands II and watched DeSean Jackson break their hearts.

Basically never unless my team is getting destroyed. I agree with @Snickerdog - might as well enjoy it if you paid for it.
