And of course, that # is tickets sold, not attendance. There's basically a 0% chance that not 1 ticketholder didn't show up.
I'm curious to know what these reasons are..

And if teams could manipulate the numbers, how come they don't manipulate them all the time? How come the Rangers didn't have 100% attendance last year if they could have lied and said they did?

And I find it hard to believe that they have been lying to us all these years about the amount of seats (18,200). Yeah, it's an even number.
