Empty Seats

Mirtle notes the sharp decline in attendance at Thrashers games.

Half-literate commenters predictably talk about relocating the team to Toronto.

Seriously, the lack of fan interest in Atlanta is pathetic. I realize that quite a lot of this has to do with a destroyed economy and the Thrashers' disastrous play last year. And attendance is down all around the league. Again, the economy...

But it's a new season, with a new coach, and we seem to be playing much better than last year's opening six-game suckfest. If nothing else people should come to see Bryan Little score a million goals.

Plus the same people that own the team own the Hawks and the building. Ain't gotta pay rent = ain't goin nowhere. You wouldn't leave your cushy rent controlled condo would you? Dumbass Canuckians.

Rome wasn't built in 6 games.

The fans have good reason to take a skeptical approach. It will take more than a solid two week performance to pull them back in.
