IE the reporters wanted very low numbers to report and still reported the attendance as less than 5000 even though the rally had over 8000 and over 12000 people came there during the day before the rally. Got any real proof of papers houses? Because the Canadian media distorts any real numbers.
To the bolded part, yes. In fact around that period, Nashville was 'papering the house' by about 1,700 to 1,800 per game:
