And, one more thing, don't come telling me the poor assistance happened just during the last few years.
Because the first job I ever had as a kid was for the Expos (yeah, I worked when I was a kid, but these were different times... the Tories were in power and they were plotting Kim Campbell's world takeover, so they could not focused on abused childs like me).
My job was to hand out promotional items to the fans at the gates. You know, the kind of promotions like "The first 5000 fans get a free baseball cap", or "the first 5000 fans get a poster of some Expos star player"...
Well, rarely did we give out all the 5000 items. People coming in late in the fourth inning (with bleachers tickets sold at 1$ apiece by burned-out scalpers) were still getting the "early bird" gifts.
The crowd was good only once a year: on the season opener. Then it was crap for 80 home games. Even when the World Series Champions were in town, no one bothered going.
Baseball was not meant for Montreal.
