Maybe they're under anouncing the projected attendance figures as opposed to over-projecting like they were doing.
I'd be really shocked to see 27,000, really shocked to see only 1 or 2,000 walkup fans. I haven't been yet this year cuz i've been away for one, and then when i was going to go for bobby ackles i had to go into the hospital. Lets seriously hope its not 27,000, or even 30,000.
That would mean about the same as the preseason game.
That would also be the lowest attendance for a game since the 2006 season. The lowest was 29,000+ for a hamilton game last year.
Edmonton usually draws a big crowd. I'd expect around 32,000 with the warm weather, but again I can go to the beach any time, and so can most people, last week was an away game, why go to the beach or do something you can do any night, when this is happening one night for a couple hours and its cheap, and you can still go and do something after on granville? Then again I'm not everyone else though.
