- A hike in listed prices (let's be honest, $ 115 for a lower bowl is a stiff price for casual fans, and upper bowl has been sold out for quite some time)
- We probably had 15% away fans when playing Chicago, we'll get about 1% with Nashville.
- As someone else mentioned, low income per capita. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of fans went all out on the first round and can't afford lower-level tickets at this point.

Not making excuses, this is what you get when you've lost corporate support and upper-class attention over the past few years. Hard-core fans aren't numerous enough anymore to fill those pricey lower-level seats every night. They can't afford it.

We need help from all those people who paid the price of attending the Cards, Dbacks and Suns championship runs. The only way we can get this is via better media coverage.
