The casual fans can also sit on his couch and watch on a cold winter day. The attendance is going to hinge on one thing...... ticket prices. I'll be very interested to see where they set them.
But lets not also forget that game was on a Tuesday night, not a very popular time to be going to watch an AHL game.
The game will hinge on ticket prices just like a lot of minor league game, if the price is right people will go.
As for the other comment, I highly doubt there will be less than 5000 people, but I guess I wouldn't rule it out, the support for the Bulldogs in Hamilton is pathetic most of the time.
I remember going to the outdoor charity game in 2005 at Ivor Wynn and they fell just short of 20,000, just throwing that out there.
