then the answer is the Lions have to do better marketing. Tickets for the Western Final aren't going to sell "automatically". if they want to outdraw David Beckham for the Western Final, which I hope they will, then the game has to be marketed, promoted.
Commercials on TV, on the radio, half page ads in the papers.
You've got to spend money before you can make money. This will be the FOURTH Western Final in a row and I'm still waiting to see the Lions make a big marketing push. I see no imagination in what the team is doing marketing wise.
For example, though it won't happen this year cause the Seahawks play same day at the WF, but why haven't the Lions taken more seriously the thought of bringing the Seahawks Blue Thunder as a half time attraction for the game?
The Alouettes did a Monster Truck show at half time Saturday in the Big Owe and drew 44,000.
I'm not against the Lions. I'm trying to light the fire a bit and get some ideas going on how we can increase the crowds.
I don't wanna see 23,000 empty seats at games! The Lions are a good team and deserve better than 23,000 empties in a Metro area of 2 million, regardless of these "Seattle" theories and reasons.
I wanna see a Full Stadium like in the 1980s. I fondly recall those days. Mervyn Fernandez and Roy Dewalt. Ned Armour, Al Wilson, Larry Crawford, John Henry White, and John Pankratz. What's wrong with that? Nothing at all.
