Seems to me the BullDogs poor attendance is part of a larger trend in Hamilton.

The TiCats receive the worst fan support in the league and it has been the case for several years......and in all probability have the worst gate revenues.

In 2007, the Hamilton Brier was the worst attended Brier in recent memory...to the point that several curlers publicly complained about it.

Bulldogs have had a history of drawing poor crowds despite fielding competitive teams year in, year out. In fact, they are lucky to average more than 5,000/ game over a season. Of particular note was the year they won the Calder Cup, 2007. The team averaged a pathetic 4600 per game in the playoffs and couldn't even sellout the final playoff game when they won the championship.

Also, let's not forget the debacle that was the 1996 Grey Cup.

All signs point to Hamilton being a lousy sports town in general. Maybe it would be for the best if this new arena in Laval would bring the Bulldogs in as their primary tenant.
