You also cannot compare attendance in October to attendance in January and February. Football (college and NFL) and baseball are still in heavy swing during those months.

Let him put up the same time period numbers and see where that gets him.
Its an ongoing theme with many of the pro-Coyotes sites out there is that they rely on the opponent to be the draw, not the Coyotes themselves. When they draw poorly against a team that doesn't have a lot of transplants in the Phoenix area or its a weeknight you hear stuff like "you can't really expect us to come out to see Columbus on Wednesday do you? "

If the visiting team is your draw then sign a deal with the NHL for 10 Saturday night neutral site games.
