Phillies have sucked for the better part of the last 20 years, and until this year had no fan support at all. Spending some money and moving into a new ballpark next year should help, but if they don't win people won't go.

Last year was a down year for the Flyers in terms of attendance and they still played to 99% capacity.
Then I stand corrected. I'm really surprised the 76ers don't draw as well as the Flyers -- maybe the Philly guys I knew at State College were just bigger basketball fans overall. Thanks.
