Am I making sense?
I don't think people are less rowdy, look at that riot and the build up in the playoffs was very Olympic like. It seems our crowd is always wondering what's going to go wrong next instead of cheering the team.. Much like the 89 Flames, various RedSox/Cubs playoff games etc. I think if we had a bruiser team the crowd would be more into it too, WCE had some exciting hitters/agitators and even the crowd back then was louder. The arena experience has become way too focused on being family friendly with that horrible DJ. It's like sitting at a 7th grade dance with the parents in the lower bowl on their blackberries.
