Yeah, attendance is up, I think we finished first or second in figures last year, but for me (a big minor league sports fan) the atmosphere was destroyed. There's just something about watching a player making 20k a year playing in a $300 million dollar arena....blahhhh.

Anyways, you are 100% correct - it is great entertainment value for the money. People should be packing out the place on a nightly basis, at least on weekend. If people would just go, they would probably love it.
I love old arena, ballparks, etc so i know exactly what you are talking about. Places like that will never be packed, but for people like you and I that just adds to the greatness of it, you arent packed in.
