I think it is great our sellout string has now hit 20 games - but considering last night was a decent night for football - and was our first home game in 44 days we were all surprised with how many no-shows there were. By we I mean the 13 family members that went to the game and were sitting in three different areas of the stadium. We all had lots of empty seats around us and could see thousands of empty seats on the opposite side. Some looking across to the West - me looking across to to the east.
Where I was in 203, in the row I was in about 1/3 of the seats in our row were empty all game. The row in front of us had 6 empty seats in a row. There were empty seats all game in the row in front of that.
Why so many no-shows. If somebody was going to be away up at their cottage or something - why not give their tickets to somebody who would use them.
Here a picture I took of the east side with 3 minutes left in the first quarter. If you look closely there are at least a couple of thousand empty seats over there - and there are not very many standing on the concession level - maybe 100 or so. And before anybody says there would be a bunch on the south patio - no there weren't - I took the second picture at the same time.
Any theories as to why there were so many no shows?
