24 886 is the number who turned out to lastnites WEDNESDAY game against ottawa.
24 637 is the number who turned out for WEDNESDAY, august 24th against calgary....
those are the LOWEST numbers for toronto all year.....
one POSITIVE way of lookin at this is, this years WEDNESDAY LOWS of 24 000 are about last years AVERAGE in toronto of 24 000.... ( excluding playoffs ).
so the argos are doing well, and should draw better next year after this strong season in '05.....hopefuly they dont get such a bad schedule and can work around jays home games better.
it's interesting lookin at the attendance increase thoughout the league ( everywhere but ottawa...but they have reasons )....i wonder how it'll be NEXT YEAR????
can't wait til montreal renovates percival to make capacity 25 000 ( from current 20 202 ), and the gliebs work out the kinks in ottawa during the offseason to increase attendance!!
