For those of you that say if you don't like it don't go - look at the attendance numbers. I am predicting the average attendance will go below 3000 this year - people aren't going. For those voicing their opinions, good businesses and organizations welcome customer feed back - successful organizations will tell you they appreciate good honest feed back. Poor organizations ignore it.
To those that compare the price of a game here to London, it is not a relevant comparison in my opinion. Put a product on the ice comparible to London's and people will gladly pay.
Lastly, regardless if people want to believe it or not, this team is essentially subsidized by the Province of Ontario (supplied the land and parking lots for the SSEC) and the City of Sarnia (paid for the majority of the arena). The very people voicing their opinion are tax payers of at least one of these and have every right to voice their opinion.
I exited the parking lot wellington rd side and I found paying for the parking did not disrupt the flow at all. The problem was that there was so many cars it took some time to leave.
As for people complaining about the length of time leaving a parking lot. Have you been to another sporting event/concert any where else? No matter where I have been, unless I wait 20 min after it has been completed, there are traffic problems. People need to relax and not be so uptight.
