    You know I love you, but what is your infatuation with attendance numbers?

  2. admin says:

    No idea. Some people collect stamps.

  3. JkR says:

    Better to be infatuated with attendance than TV Ratings. The death of any ‘sport’ is when it becomes a ‘TV Show’ with a live audience.

  4. kebzach says:

    You could make a pretty strong argument that the NFL is a TV show with a live audience…and last I checked it’s not planning on pulling an AFL anytime soon.

  5. triplet1 says:

    Has a USL team ever outdrawn 3 MLS teams before?

  6. admin says:

    Rochester might have. Though, of course, San Jose and Kansas City are (slightly) special cases at the moment.
