    Georgia has been hyping up how helpful it was to have a full year to market and how Atlanta is starting to buy into lacrosse. Yeah, didn't look like it last night. You could park a bus in a lot of the sections of empty seats. The commish said he doesn't want to move anymore teams, but Georgia is starting to look like a failure to me unless they are willing to take big losses.

    they cant be losing money much slower than they were in MN.

    I mean the facility rental might only be 20%, but, I bet the gate is also only about 30%

    To be fair, there was snow in the Atlanta area yesterday and all it takes is 1 inch to mess up the whole city.

    Announced attendance of 4809. It will interesting to see how the second year progresses there. Last year they averaged 4667. They had 3 Sunday dates last year and only have 1 this year so hopefully that helps a bit.

    Game 2 shows you the real attendance.......I don't know what their operating budget looks like, but, they had to be closer to breaking even with a consistent 8k ish in central M-SP than they are with a life support 2.5K in the Atlanta 'burbs

    So....maybe those were the wings of a bee that Philadelphia had. At least that's what the next incarnation of the Wings will have at this rate.

    How can this team be there next year at this rate? Could a relocation to Philadelphia be a possibility? Or a return to Minnesota somehow?

    We want the NLL back in Minny but if it means Arlotta-owned, no thanks.

    This looks like a CLaX game......pretty sure there are considerably fewer than 2400 arses in seats. Only the middle section is even scraping up against half full, with the others at like 18 or less

    Funny you say that, cause the first thought I had when I saw the Georgia crowd was 'I wonder if that could fill the Meridian Centre?'

    Even we weren't that bad. We usually had between 3000 and 4000 and that was an accurate figure. The most dismal figure I saw was when we had a bad snowstorm in 2003 and Philly was in town. That game only had a few hundred hearty souls. Even my wife wouldn't go and she didn't want me to go to risk driving but I said **** it and went. Anyway, the Georgia games are looking more like that.

    What you fail to consider is unlike 2008 fans now wear blue chairs to games to protect themselves. This was a biggest crowed in NLL history section 101 row a has 2.5 thousand people in it alone.

    Stop spamming these forums with your political takes, this is the second team forum you posted this. Take it to off topic, nobody wants to deal with that here.
