We have been full season ticket holders since season one (2001-2002) and there are lots of factors regarding attendance, the economy, the newness has worn off, concession prices and some say ticket prices. Also full season ticket holders are taken for granted (no matter what the front office says). The number of full season tickets holders has declined in big numbers for the past several years. Some people say the on ice product hasn't been the same since the lock out season, but the Monarchs have gone further in the playoffs since the 2004-2005 season.
