FINAL: WEEK 20 OVERALL LEAGUE AVERAGE @28,924 (28,479in 05)

After a great weekend with three decent crowds, although a somewhat disapointing turnout in Edmonton, I know out of the playoffs etc., the overall average has come in just slightly under 29,000. This is not bad when considering the last minute schedule change, meaning overall 2,082,537 attended 72 regural season games.
All of the teams except the Bombers(+2671) showed a decrease and with the greatest being Edmonton(-4063). BC moved up to number two and overall the league average did benefit because of the Ottawa factor in 05.
With a decent rebound next year, I believe we can top the 30,000 mark.
