If Jake said that it really does piss me off. What pisses me off is the way that other fans and some in the national hockey media diss us as a fan base. Hate to see that from Jake.

We have had, with the exception of one year, eleven years of suck, and we still manage to average a little north of 14,000 per game. And if it weren't for a lower average during Buckeye football, the over-all average would be a bit higher.

Sure, you can go to league attendance figures and see us sitting there in 26th, or 27th spot amongst all of the teams, but just like in politics, the stats don't always tell the whole story.

Like I mentioned in the other thread, the Hawks fans sitting around me were impressed with our attendance figures, and were very sympathetic to our plight. They acknowledged that it wasn't all that long ago that their team sucked, and that they were getting 6,000 a night in a city, what, a little over three times the size of Columbus?
