My FAU flag is GONE... I feel sick

This is an open letter to whomever STOLE my FAU flag and flagpole from my Jeep tonight at Lockhart…

I know many of the faithful readers of this board are alums or current students who attend FAU football games. So this is a request to anyone who has any information about the person(s) responcible for STEALING my FAU flag and flagpole from my truck - not hard to spot as it's the only one also flying a Canadian flag.

I didn't think someone from my own school would stoop to such depths as to rip off one of their own. But I guess I've been naiive and given people too much credit. Much to my dismay we left tonight's game to find our tailgating area ROBBED of our flag.

If anyone on this board knows anything about this, please drop me a note. The rest of my tailgating group and I are VERY upset and disappointed about this.

If anyone knows who STOLE it, we will accept it's return, no questions asked, at the next home game on Oct.28.

If for some reason the person(s) who STOLE our flag have the audacity to try and fly it any time this season at any FAU event and I see it… I feel sorry for the poor soul. This is not a threat, just a warning.

I'm sorry to hear that. I think the tailgate vibe was not normal with all of the Police presence before the game. I hope someone comes clean and you get your flag back 'cause that's pretty low.

I'll chip into a fund to get you a new one. Sad situation.

Hi Canadian,

I met you (or someone else at your tailgate) yesterday. As a fellow Canadian owl, this is really disappointing. Please let us know if you get it back. Who in their right mind would steal an FAU flag at a game?

Sorry to hear about that buddy… I'll keep an eye out also at our next home game… is it a large blue FAU flag? How big?

No worries guys, thanks for the concern.

We talked to a few people in the athletic dept. who said they'd try to find a replacement for us. Still just pisses me off someone would steal from their fellow fans. We even left our tailgating stuff setup, FAU flag included, while we were at the Clemson game and didn't have any problems.

It was one of the blue 3x5' flags with the old winged owl logo. Since I've only seen a handful of people with the same flag it won't be hard to track it down if the moron is stupid enough to fly it at a football game (especially with the special marking in a secret spot).

Homecoming game should be interesting. We'll be back in force, about 10-15 of us strong.

Had the pleasure of tailgating with you at the FIU game last year Canadianowl, I feel your pain about being robbed of tailgate equipment, I've had some things taken from my tailgate spots during games as well, it's ridiculous.
Did they take your maple leaf flag as well or just the FAU one?

Just the FAU flag, thankfully they left the Canadian flag flying. That would have been a totally different situation.

Like I said, I could understand if it happpened at say FIU or USF or Clemson, but it didn't. It happened at our home stadium, most likely by our fellow FAU fans.

The other thing that bothered us was the fact that the police didn't really care about helping. When we asked if we could file a report after the game, they gave me a card to call the "Non-emergency line" if we really had a problem. I asked if they would at least write something up so I had a paper-trail, they basically told us we had to leave the parking lot because the game was over. And when we said we've never been told to leave before, they said "Not our problem." So we stayed until the cops left and finished our BBQ.
