I was at the game and - as the thread on ticket sales mentioned - there were a minimum of 8000 empty seats. My experience suggests that it was more like 10,000 but lets not quibble.
The blackout is supposed to increase sales for a specific game. This is not good news because if this was an 'increased crowd' then the 'Cats have truly lost the general community and most of the walk-up crowd.
Management obviously knows this.
The question is... do you think that with wins the crowds will return or is this a typical southern Ontario phenomenon and has the team 'missed the moment?' I'm not too sure of the answer.
