    My conspiracy theory personality leads me to believe that they show way less tickets available than actually are, to lead people to believe there's some sense of urgency to buy now. And that they show less tickets available on the penalty box side, the non-camera view side, to force people to buy tickets that will make the crowd look bigger on TV. And there's probably many more nefarious reasons.

    Georgia claims 7700 for last nights game and New England had 5766.

    Wings also claimed over 10k, when there couldn't have been much more than 7k.

    It looked pretty full from the feed but there’s no way it was over 10k maybe within the 8k range

    As.much as.you would like to say it was.that low, it wasnt close to 7k. One sect.was.empty, another mostly. I would guess very high 8 or low 9k

    While I wasn't there, I do believe the New England number.

    Being at the game last night, I agree with the New England number. I saw some video from the Georgia game and it seemed more crowded than normal, but their typical actual crowd is like 2k so thats not saying much.

    That Georgia number is quite a stretch. It did look better than in the recent past, but it seemed like 4000

    Beer night is always a good turnout ;) Personally, I love seeing some of the Facebook "experts" make drunken asses out of themselves fawning over the players while lamenting the good ole days when Bill was there. We laughed our asses off wathcing a guy give himself a field sobriety test between every drink. Follow the beer garden up with a few hours of watching women in tight black dresses stumble around the casino in heels they're not used to wearing while drinking more for free while playing video poker before catching an Uber home for $12. I call that a winning night any weekend.

    I miss visiting the Mohegan Sun so much.....

    Do Gwinnet and Mohegan have much in the way of box seats and suites? People always look at the bowl seating and say 'nah can't be that many' when they see the empty seats, not realising the are folks in the suites which don't often seem obvious nor appear on screen. Seemed to be the case back in Langley, a lot of people in the arena not in their seats or not in the bowl area, i.e. suites or lounge seating.

    Last week, one of the Vancouver rags made this interesting quote in regards to the previous Langley Stealth attendance situation:

    "Moving sports franchises out of a highly crowded urban hub and out to the suburbs in an effort to “connect with fans” (but actually to try and save money), will only make you less relevant and popular."

    This was proven right in Langley vs Vancouver, and in Everett vs Seattle, and seems to be playing out as well in Gwinnett vs Atlanta. Stop trying to sell sub-urban locations as urban markets.

    I won't debate the utility of having an arena in the downtown part of a metro area.

    You might want to check Google Maps for the location of:
    1. Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots
    2. AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys
    3. New Era Field, home of the Buffalo Bills
    These arenas are significantly far into the suburbs, yet they don't have attendance problems.

    Attendance problems are a function of many necessary factors. Distance from downtown is a necessary factor, but it is not a sufficient factor - as proven by the 3 above and others that I can look-up if necessary.

    Distance from downtown is not a sufficient factor for NFL football

    I will argue however that NLL data supports the hypothesis that it is a sufficient factor for NLL lacrosse.......New England has not failed, and may never, but, all of the others did/will.

    I haven't been there in a few years, but I don't think Mohegan has a lot in the way of suites. Granted, I've only been there for a few events when they weren't being used except for maybe 1 or 2.

    Apples to oranges here. Arenas are better suited for downtown locations - NFL stadiums with huge parking lots work better outside of the downtown core.

    Yet baseball works better in urban settings.

    Mohegan has about 10 sky suites but I’ve only seen them in use once for wolves games and they aren’t on sale to the GP

    Seriously? You are going to try and compare the NFL to the NLL?

    The biggest money making league in the world vs the NLL?

    Any one of those francises mentioned is worth 10x the entire NLL!

    Hell any one of those arenas are worth more!
