I see that he thinks that the Canadian teams are propping up the US
teams.....I first thing he has lost touch with reality and then....yep....I
think he has just lost his mind
I can not say how other club are dealing with getting fans in the seat, The
Wild are doing a great job at keeping fans
right now there is a three year waiting list for season tickets.
Funny how every article I read when the Wild first came in to the league
that they would NEVER last three or four years, But from what I see the Wild
are very stable and should be here for a long long time.
I can say I have seen a few games and notice that there are a few empty
seats in other arenas, but nothing that I would say is any thing to worry
about. The one game I watch last year that I can say that I think something
funny was going on was Dallas vs. Minnesota in Dallas, A sold out full
attendance was announced, but when the cameras scanned the seat there could
only be about 4-5,000 in the stands (you cant tell me that they were ALL out
getting hot dogs or beer either) they were no where near sold out.
I take it from this article that all the teams should move north of the
border, back to Canada and that hockey should no be in the USA or Europe. I
personally think the Canadians are too sensitive and should relies that its
a damn game and hockey is everyone's game not just theirs. Now grow up and
enjoy the game.
Sorry for the rant.
