Last week there was talk of possibly 45,000 attending the home opener and Ricky Williams debute. Then as the week progressed they realized they over estimated the interest and declared 40,000 will attend. On game day CBC was gitty and stated that an Argo season opener of over 35,000 hasn't happened in 40 years! The attendance? 27,689.
Is Ricky Williams worth his $500,000 in more tickets? I think not! David Cinniman et at. need to understand that Argo fans while supportive at times, are far too finicky and cold! They averaged 22,000 fans when Doug Flutie was leading them to a grey Cup!
Am I wrong in this thinking?
