If it's any consolation, over the season, that one game would add just over 1,000 fans to their per-game average, and right now that MIGHT edge them into the top 30 at the end of the year... _maybe_.
Understood, but it's one thing to play a game where the team might draw 10-15K which may be double than their per game average. It's another for one game to draw over 12 times their per game average. An extra 1000 fans would take the Phantoms from 27th to 19th place and would put them in your top 30 where they clearly do not belong.
