Frankly, there are very few Caucasians that live within three miles of the arena, and those that do in Midtown make up one of the biggest gay neighborhoods in the US. Just one block west of the arena is a big ghetto of very low density. Just about the worst area of the city.

Now, my next door neighbors are gay and are long time STH for the Thrashers, but we don't live in Midtown. The guys that live in midtown are very anti-sports, let's just say. It's not that they're gay, it's that they're ultra-liberal urban elitists who think sports are for neanderthals.

The ECHL team in the market is keeping Thrashers attendance suppressed by at least 2-3k a night on average. These people would be going to the NHL games otherwise. They even wear their customized Thrashers jerseys to the ECHL games!
