Is it just me, or do others feel that Cameron is a place for watching BASKETBALL games, and not making "statements". Its not that I hate the environment, far from it, but I go to Cameron to support the team, not the "green movement".
I'll be wearing the same blue shirt that I always wear. I frankly don't even like the non blue/white Duke shirts that have become such the rage.
Goodbye Blue Devil; Hello Greenzo!The Blue Devil mascot also will have a slight costume change during the game

As long as they don't disrupt the game or demand that I follow suit, I have no problem with any students or fans who feel it's important to make this -- or any other -- political statement. Especially something as passive as wearing a green tee-shirt.
I'll be wearing a blue shirt, but maybe I'll wear an Obama button.
PS Any other oldtimes remember the bit of guerrilla theater that disrupted a game in the late 1960s? During a timeout, a bunch of students jumped on the court and staged an anti-Vietnam War playlet -- they set up a peaceful Vietnamese village and had a dozen US "soldiers" sweep through and destroy the village, killing all the women and children. Not very subtle. Definately not Tony-worthy ... and disruptive of the game. I have more sympathy for the students who expressed their opposition to the war by not standing for the national anthem (a big issue in the late '60s and early '70s).
Yeah, I'm kind of ambivalent on this. It's going to be one funky mesh of blue and green in the student section, I'd imagine. Kind of wish they sent a message to the students to fill us in though.
Not a huge deal, I just think we have enough trouble turning the place blue, the last thing we need is a competing color. I applaud all the rest of the ideas that are being done for this game. I'll still be wearing blue though.
I would propose green headbands/sweatbands instead of shirts. I guess the statement wouldn't be as strong, though.
the problem with this whole thing is that its not something they're trying to advertise and build support for, so the people who care about this can come to the game or so people who disagree with the idea can argue about it. Apparently they're just going to hand out the t-shirts at the game and tell people to wear them...
which honestly makes the contrary part of me just want to wear blue (or purple for that matter) just because I don't like being pressured to make a political statement without being given warning first
